Asterix at the Olympics


Francophiles rejoice! Atari is bringing an Asterix game to the Wii, DS, PC and PS2. Fans of Goscinny and Uderzo’s Gaulish comic heroes Asterix & Obelix will get another chance to control the diminutive star and his menhir hewing friend.

A tie in with the upcoming live action movie, Asterix at the Olympics will feature elements from the film as well as high quality original CGI. Players will control the two Gauls as they travel to Greece with their lovesick friend Alafolix. Eventually, of course, they find themselves in the Olympics fighting Romans and taunting their arch nemesis, Julius Caesar.

Europeans will see the game before the holidays. The American audience will probably have to import, as most of you probably have no idea what we’re talking about. For more information on this title, visit and pretend you’re not from the colonies.
