Microids and Mr Nutz Studio have revealed that Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! is in development for Nintendo Switch.
Created with “an artistic direction very close to the comic book where the characters, the scenery and also the animations are hand-drawn,” this 2D beat ’em up has looked to be “as respectful to the original material as possible.”
Set in 50 B.C., Gaul has been entirely occupied by the Romans and only one small village holds out against the invaders. You will have the chance to play as Asterix and Obelix, setting sail to iconic locations from the comic book series where you will battle Roman legionaries, pirates, brigands and even the dreaded Normans.
Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Fall 2021.
