With Asterix & Obelix XXL Romastered, the classic game from 2004 returns in a technically and playfully improved version. The release will take place in October 2020.
As the publisher Microids announced, a remake of the 2004 action title of Asterix & Obelix XXL is currently being worked on. The new edition is published under the name of Asterix & Obelix XXL Romastered and was created by the French developers at OSome Studios, who has attracted attention in recent years with titles such as White Night or Asterix & Obelix XXL 3.
While the original speakers are returning, the remake in the technical and playful area will be given various improvements. According to official information, Asterix & Obelix XXL Romastered offers you the opportunity to choose between the original from 2004 and the remake.
The innovations include two new game modes, optimized gameplay, a redesigned camera work and some completely revised animations. In Asterix & Obelix XXL, the two Gauls return to their village after a successful wild boar hunt and are shocked to find that it is on fire.
In addition, their friends are swallowed up by the earth, and our two heroes and their dog Idefix set out to find the missing villagers who are being held prisoner around the world. The locations include Gaul, Egypt, Greece, and of course Rome.
Asterix & Obelix XXL Romastered will release on October 22, 2020 for the PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
