Is The First Asterix & Obelix XXL Getting A Remaster?

After we have received a remaster of the second game, followed by a new, third instalment in the Asterix & Obelix XXL series, Microids might make the trilogy complete.

Asterix & Obelix XXL was developed by Étranges Libellules, and published by Atari Europe. It first launched on the PlayStation 2 on November 21, 2003, in Europe. On June 18, 2004, a GameCube, PC, and Game Boy Advance version (the handheld port was made by Velez & Dubail) were also released. However, North America only got the PS2 version on September 14, 2004. Then again, the Gallic duo is more known in Europe than across the pond.

Now, the Australian game rating board has rated something called Asterix & Obelix XXL Romastered. (What a pun. They also rated eFootball PES 2021, Konami’s next Pro Evolution Soccer title. And to that, we can all say that the sky is blue…) Going by the information listed on the page, the game should have French, Italian, English, German, and Spanish localization, the publisher would be Microids (who in the recent months have seriously gone into acquiring a ton of Francophone IPs, such as The Adventures of Tintin, which we previously discussed when it was announced…), and the developer would once again be OSome Studio.

Keep in mind that nothing is official yet, but think about it. Even Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time was revealed via Taiwan’s rating board, and they even had the game’s box art ready to go, so we should just sit back and wait until Microids confirms the game’s existence. No, they won’t remaster the Game Boy Advance version (that would be weird), but the PlayStation 2/GameCube/PC one, so the Gallic duo should kick the Romans’ butts in a solid-looking title.

Time will prove us right.
