'Asterix and Obelix XXL 2' (NDS/PSP) Announced

Atari announced today that Asterix and Obelix XXL 2 is currently in development for PSP and NDS. Enhanced versions of the PS2 and PC game of the same name, Asterix and Obelix XXL 2 for the handhelds will take advantage of their unique capabilities while staying rooted in the same great tradition of parody that runs throughout the stories of Asterix and his friends.

The PSP version of Asterix and Obelix XXL 2 includes a completely new Wi-Fi two player mode which is easily accessible and great fun to play. With room for up to four players at once, gamers will be able to challenge others in an intensely entertaining Arena Team Battle. Pick from the most loveable characters in the Asterix universe and then let battle commence, unless the sky falls on our heads first. Multiplayer gameplay is made easily accessible with a simple interface to launch players straight into the action.

The version for Nintendo DS takes the story and gives it a shake with use of the stylus and touch screen so cunning that even the druid Getafix would be impressed. A number of hectic mini-games are incorporated into the central game to get that stylus moving, while the addition of two Wi-Fi multiplayer games gives players an extra burst of magic potion-fuelled Gallic mayhem.

Asterix and Obelix XXL 2 for PSP and Nintendo DS is scheduled for release across Europe in November 2006.
