The game will be available in two limited editions. The Limited Edition will contain the game and one Asterix and Obelix figures each. The Collector Edition will include these, as well as a 15-centimetre resin figure with Obelix and Dogmatix. Asterix & Obelix XXL 3: The Crystal Menhir will launch on November 21 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, Microids (the publisher) and Osome Studio (the developers) announced.
It’s an interesting thought to see figures included in a limited edition of a game. Usually, it’s a soundtrack CD or something else…
