When Asterix takes some exercise!

Video games

We've known ever since Asterix and the Class Act that little Gauls are sometimes quite reluctant to go to school. And that only leads to them forgetting the date of the battle of Gergovia when the day of the exam comes around. Pffff…

Thankfully, Asterix and his friends have proved for nearly fifty years now that learning can also be fun. Many of us, in fact, can take pride in our extensive knowledge of Latin quotes that we have accumulated through our attentive reading of Asterix albums. It's as simple as that: Asterix albums should replace school books, by Toutatis!

The Gauls have moved into second gear with Asterix Brain Trainer, the new Asterix video game for the Nintendo DS. So get your DS stylus ready for a series of more than 20 exercises led by heroes from the Crazy Gauls' Village!

There's no rest for those who seek the wisdom of the druids: multi-player competitions promise to add spice to any light-hearted video game tournaments for Gauls of all ages. And woe betide those whose poor-performing adult brains may be judged to date from 50 BC ;-)

A new video Game Asterix at the Olympic Games announced!

Video games

Great news from Lugdunum (Lyon, in Gaul): a new Asterix video game, Asterix at the Olympic Games, is scheduled for release this coming winter!
The game of the forthcoming live action feature film of the same name, Asterix at the Olympic Games blends live action elements from the film with high quality computer generated and video game animation to deliver fans an extraordinary and unique Asterix experience.
In Asterix at the Olympic Games players can choose from three playable characters, Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix, in an original story which takes a parallel course to the film and the comic-book. Our heroes must stop Brutus who has opened the gates between the worlds of the comic book, the film and the game while still finding time and energy to triumph at the Olympic Games themselves. The mini-game mode lets players compete in Olympic challenges with their chosen character, while two-player multiplayer lets friends go head to head in a series of hilarious contests.
Until the release of the video game Asterix at the Olympic Games, scheduled for this coming winter on PlayStation®2, Nintendo DS™, Wii and PC, Pepe suggests you have a look at the already incredible Asterix video games Museum.

Asterix and Obelix: Mission Wifix

Video games

Dear old Julius will never live it down: after the triumph of the DVD of the film Asterix and the Vikings, the Gauls are now attacking Roman legions in pixel format: Asterix and Obelix: Mission Wifix has just been released for PSP and Nintendo DS.
Caesar is supposedly preparing his counter attack, and the rumours are of giant centurions and clones of the emperor.
But Obelix has thought of everything: thanks to the new Wifi multiplayer mode, indomitable friends from the world over, Iberians, Britons, Belgians and Helvetians will be able to join together to give the Romans a pasting at chariot races and arena team battle.
Further proof that Asterix’s village has gone global! See our special sheet for more information.
