Today, Microids announced that Asterix & Obelix XXL 3: The Crystal Menhir will release on Switch in Q4 2019.

We have the following overview of the game:

A major update for Gear.Club Unlimited 2 is out now. Microids and Eden Games have issued version 1.3.0, featuring synchronous online multiplayer, improvements, and bug fixes.

The full patch notes are as follows:

Microids and Eden Games came out with Gear.Club Unlimited in 2017. Essentially one year later, the two sides have returned once again with a sequel. Unlike its predecessor, Gear.Club Unlimited 2 was made from the ground up for Nintendo’s console and as an exclusive – it has no mobile ties unlike last year’s release.

Shortly before Gear.Club Unlimited 2’s launch, we caught up with lead designer Yannick Berthier. Berthier spoke with us about why the team made its new racer exclusively for Switch and the benefits that allowed for. You can read our full interview below.

You may recall that Gear.Club Unlimited received new content and features after its launch last year. Its sequel looks to be following a similar path.

Microids has confirmed that additional functionality will be added to the multiplayer mode “in the upcoming weeks.” This includes synchronous races.

We’ll bring you more news about future updates for Gear.Club Unlimited 2 when we have them.
