Because reasons, Microids have taken it upon themselves to remaster the thirteen year old game Asterix & Obelix XXL 2. Actually it’s pretty obvious what two of those reasons are and they rhyme with “Pyro” and “Smash”, colourful platformers from a bygone age are selling by the bucket load.
“Young and old players will enjoy this thrilling adventure in Las Vegum – the amusement park created by Julius Caesar,” say Microids. “As they make their way through the park’s various themed areas, such as Lutetia, Little Venetia, LuckSore and Pirate Island, they will explore richly detailed and colourful environments.”
That’s all lovely but that doesn’t explain why Asterix appears to be… Welsh. Seriously, have a listen, is that Michael Sheen?
The game will be released in the UK on November 30th on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, and there is a limited edition which will include the game and 3 figurines: Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix.
