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.
