Asterix & Obelix: Slap them All! Announced for Fall 2021

Publisher Microids has today announced Asterix & Obelix: Slap them All! A gorgeous looking 2D beat 'em up based on the classic comic series.

The game developed by Mr Nutz Studio is aiming to make this adventure as respectful to the original material as possible. The developers chose to go with an artistic direction very close to the comic book where the characters, the scenery and also the animations are hand drawn. A real love letter to the 2D animation classic style that will appeal to fans and lovers of retro alike.

Set in 50 B.C. Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans and only one small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders. Play as Asterix & Obelix and set sail to the most iconic places in the comic book series while battling Roman legionaries, pirates, brigands and even the dreaded Normans. The game will also feature two player local co-op.

Asterix & Obelix: Slap them All! Is currently set for release on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC and on Xbox Series X|S and Playstation 5 through backwards compatibility. You can watch the teaser trailer below.
