Asterix is of course that "small village that we know so well", a haven of peace (apart from during "fresh" fish deliveries), where life is good and for which our favourite heroes are ready to sacrifice all in order to preserve the utopian bliss.

However, Asterix and his friends are open to the outside world. In the course of their travels, they have discovered numerous cultures and established close ties with Indomitables across the Known World, including, of course, Pepe, Anticlimax and Petitsuix.

It is therefore quite natural, since its creation, for the virtual village Asterix.com to be a truly global village where five languages are spoken among an international population of brave souls who revel in taunting Caesar's troops. Did we say five languages? French, German English, Spanish and Dutch… but now there are six with Portuguese! We are delighted to present the sixth and latest version of the website, this time in Portuguese, launched online just days ago.

We had the pleasure of developing this particular website with the team at ASA, the publisher of Asterix in Portugal. ASA promises us that 2011 - the 50th anniversary of the first publication of Asterix in Portugal - will be an exceptional year with local releases of the special collector's album Secrets de Druides and the complete collection of Asterix characters books. Obrigado!
