Microids is delighted to release today the very first trailer for the game  Asterix & Obelix XXL: Romastered, premiered this week at Gamescom 2020.

The remastered version of this Action/Adventure title originally released in 2003 is being developed by Osome Studio and will launch in Australia digitally on the 22nd of October 2020 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC/Mac.

Asterix & Obelix XXL: Romastered is a timeless classic! Would you be a young wannabe Gaul or a confirmed warrior with hundreds of Roman helmets as trophies, the adventure awaits!

This updated version of the game might have fallen in the magic potion! Both the graphics and the soundtrack are fully remastered and the game sees the addition of reworked animations as well as some brand new gameplay elements. This 100% «Romastered» edition surely will bring some nice surprises to all the boar hunters out there!

As per usual in the series, players will be able to switch between the two Gauls as they see fit!

On top of this global enhancement, the game is bringing 4 new game modes to the table for even more Roman slapping enjoyment:

  • The «Parkour» mode to challenge player’s agility
  • The «Against the Hourglass» mode for the speed lover Gauls
  • The «Extreme» mode for the bravest Gauls looking for a difficult challenge

Finally, the cherry on the boar, a fourth new game mode called “Retro” will allow to switch between the original graphics and the new remastered version with a push of a button.  Try the game as if it was 2003 all over again!
