Original (6/27): Publisher Microids and developer Mr. Nutz Studio have announced side-scrolling beat-em-up Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! 2 will be coming to Switch. The title is set to release in November, although no precise date has been provided.
Here’s an overview of the game, which comes from Microids via Gematsu:
A double helping of slaps!
The humble country life of Asterix, Obelix and the other villagers is interrupted by the sudden arrival of Justforkix, who has come seeking help. He reveals that his father, Doublehelix, has been imprisoned for a theft he did not commit…
The Lutetia Eagle, the precious golden emblem of the Roman legions, has just been stolen, and an innocent man has been thrown in jail! Asterix promises to investigate and asks Justforkix to stay safe in the village. The two Gallic warriors head to Lutece to get more information from an acquaintance known to be well-informed about the rumors and intrigues of the city… And obviously, they won’t find the answers they need on their long journey without a healthy dose of slaps!
Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! 2 is a slap-filled beat ’em Up with an original storyline. You’ll visit many different places along the way: forgotten ruins in a murky forest, the largest Roman camp ever, and even Lutece… A journey towards distant lands, packed with diverse environments, punctuated by numerous encounters and, of course—featuring a generous distribution of slaps! All accompanied by original animated scenes that bring the story to life!
Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! 2 takes the fighting to the next level with more enemies and bosses, as well as many new features and gameplay improvements. In addition to their unique moves that they can “charge”, and more dynamic and fluid fights, Asterix and Obelix also benefit from a Fury mode and a devastating Ultimate attack. Not to mention the possibility of destroying certain elements in the environment and throwing barrels or menhirs in combat!
