Slap down them cards in Asterix & Obelix Heroes

We’re mostly used to brawling our way through an Asterix & Obelix game. But today NACON, Jumpgate and Les Éditions Albert René are giving us something a bit different. You see, Asterix & Obelix: Heroes is a turn-based tactical card game – and it’s out now on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC. 

A new card battler

In Asterix & Obelix: Heroes you get to take in the lives of the most famous Gaulish duo. But in this adventure some good old-fashion card battling awaits. It has you taking it to Caesar and his legions, as you try and stop him from getting his hands on the Treasure of Toutatis. And you’ll be doing it be slapping down some cards. 

Priced at £24.99, Asterix & Obelix: Heroes whisks you back to the year 50 BC. And it’s here where you’ll do battle once more, utilising a number of cards instead of the usual fists. Dropping your deck, upgrading heroes and making the most of the various skills and abilities of each is the name of the game in Asterix & Obelix: Heroes. 

With 24 heroes in place, it comes as no surprised to hear that this is an Asterix & Obelix game that may just have some legs. And of course, if comes with the usual iconic visual style we have fast become used to.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
