A brand new game set in the world of Asterix and Obelix is on the horizon. The popular European comic has been adapted to video games before, but Asterix & Obelix: Slap Them All! looks like it could be a step up.

It's a 2D beat-'em-up in which you play the titular heroes, and going by the short teaser trailer above, it looks to have beautiful hand drawn visuals. It looks like it echoes that trademark art style very well indeed. It's published by Microids and in development at Mr. Nutz Studio — we'd never heard of it, either. Still, these early signs indicate the game could be pretty decent.

Slap Them All releases in the Fall of 2021, so there's a while to go yet. What do you think of it so far? Are you a fan of Asterix and Obelix? Tell us what you reckon in the comments section below.
