Asterix & Obelix XXL: Romastered is now available for Switch

The iconic duo returns

Fans of Asterix and Obelix will be happy to know that the remaster of their 2003 outing is finally available on Switch. Get the full details below!

By Toutatis! The game Asterix & Obelix XXL: Romastered is out! The remastered version of this Action/Adventure title originally released in 2003 is now available on the Nintendo Switch eShop, PlayStation 4 PSN, Xbox One Games Store and PC/Mac (Steam).

Young boar-hunting Gauls and confirmed warriors get ready for adventure and stock up on magic potion! It’s time to go free the village’s captives held by the Romans!

An improved magic recipe!

This “Romastered” version features numerous new elements allowing players to fully dive into this iconic world, including remastered graphics and soundtrack, revamped animations and enhanced gameplay. Additionally, all the improvements brought by this remaster can be adjusted in the settings menu for a customized experience.

As per usual, players will be able to switch between the two Gauls as they see fit. Whether they use Obelix’s strength or Asterix’s agility, they’ll have to make the best use of each character’s abilities to complete their mission!

Additional modes for even more slaps!

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

The “Obstacle course” mode to challenge player’s agility

The “Against the clock” mode for the speed lovers

The “Extreme” mode for the bravest Gauls looking for a difficult challenge

The “Retro” mode, allowing players to switch between the original graphics and the remastered version

Finally, the icing on the boar, 4 different skins for our two heroes are available! Gauls, Pirate, Bathing Outfit, Legionary… A wardrobe worthy of Cleopatra’s!

About Asterix & Obelix XXL: Romastered:

For once, the famous little village didn’t resist the invader...

All the villagers have been kidnapped and are now kept prisoner all around the world by the Romans! Launch the rescue mission with Asterix, Obelix and the loyal Dogmatix and visit Normandy, Greece, Helvetia and Egypt. Of course, you’ll eventually end your journey in Rome (since all the roads lead there!) to achieve your mission and bring back all your friends safe and sound!

To free Getafix, Panacea, Cacofonix and all their friends, you’ll have to fight every enemy along the way: Romans, Pirates and even the Vikings!


I love the pun in the title Smile
Also love that none of the 3 games in the trilogy were released in the right order XD
