Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! 2 Will Beat 'em Up Again on Consoles and PC This Year

The diminutive Gaul and his portly friend will brawl with more legions of dastardly soldiers in November.

Asterix the Gaul is a long-running French comic series that has been translated into English and numerous languages. French publisher Microids has released numerous video game adaptations, the most recent of which is the 4-player action game, Asterix & Obelix XXXL: The Ram From Hibernia. Microids also published a beat 'em up game called Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! a few years back, and now it's getting a sequel. Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! 2 will arrive on consoles and PC in November, complete with 2-player local co-op.

In Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! 2, a foreign visitor once again arrives at the village of the Gauls to ask for help. The visitor, Justforkix, explains that his father Doublehelix has been falsely imprisoned by the Romans for stealing a treasure called the Lutetia Eagle. Asterix and his oversized pal, Obelix, must travel to Lutèce to locate the missing treasure and save the innocent man! Along the way, our heroes will surely bust plenty of Roman heads.

As with the original, Slap Them All! 2 comes from Mr Nutz Studio, the same developer behind New Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja. While that game stumbled a bit out of the gate (but was later updated), the original Slap Them All! is a very pretty beat 'em up that plays fairly well to boot. As explained in our co-op review, our only issues with it were the lack of enemy variety (which might still be a problem in the sequel) and occasional difficulty spikes. We know for sure that the new game will once again feature gorgeous hand-drawn art, and that's always worthy of anticipation.

Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! 2 features:

  • Beautiful, brand new levels, from Lutèce to... the end of the world!
  • A action-packed storyline, full of twists and turns.
  • A new Fury mode that can be activated in combat...
  • ... and a unique Ultimate attack for each character.
  • New enemies and bosses to deal out the slaps to!
  • The ability to destroy certain elements of the environment.
  • Locations and characters faithful to the comics.
  • Play with 2 players in local Co-op mode.
  • An original story with animated scenes.
