The next entry in the Asterix & Obelix series of games, Asterix & Obelix XXXL: The Ram From Hibernia, has been announced by developer OSome Studio and publisher Microids. It’s a top-down adventure featuring “mind bending puzzle solving, exploration and items to collect,” and it’s planned to be released for Switch in Fall 2022. Check out the reveal teaser trailer above and details below.
Your journey through Hibernia will span across six chapters, each of them filled with Romans and collectibles. Be creative! The more combo styles and diverse items you use during the fight, the bigger the surprises! Sure, a hit with that barrel sounds nice, but why not try a tree stump as well?
Stronger together! Asterix & Obelix XXXL: The Ram From Hibernia will offer a co-op mode for up to four players on the same screen!
By Toutatis, these Gauls are crazy!
The year is 50 BC. Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, not entirely! One small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders… Meanwhile, in Hibernia (today known as Ireland) Keratine, chief Whiskitonix’s daughter, is calling Asterix and Obelix to the rescue as they need help to overcome the Roman invasion and bring back her father’s beloved golden ram. For this mission, you’ll control your favorite heroes and use your fists and any surrounding objects to make your way while throwing Romans in the air! Our two Gauls will also be able to count on their trusty druid Getafix, who’s been working on a new magic potion recipe for extra power!
