Sure, which is why I'm also definitely going to buy it. I'm just too excited that a game like this is being made!
As for Batman, in my case I'd kill for a modern The Animated Series adaption. The closest I've gotten are skins from that series in Arkham City, for both Batman and Catwoman, and even just those few crumbs were awesome.
But unfortunately Norm Breyfogle will be harder to capture in a game.
I went with Breyfogle since I was talking about comics. Otherwise I'd go for The Animated Series too. The Alan Grant/Norm Breyfogle comics and TAS are closely related in my mind anyway. They are what I grew up with, are similar in tone and types of stories, and they still are, in my opinion, the best versions of Batman in their respective media.
I know! The name isn't helping... "Slap them All!" :S
Yeah, as much as I'm enthusiastic about the game, I have to say the title is terrible. Why wouldn't they just call it The Adventures of Asterix & Obelix, or Asterix and Obelix Strike Back? Or Asterix and Obelix are 2D Again?
How about calling Asterix & Obelix : God save Britannia?
It's been listed as from Mr Nutz Studio, which is a different developer to the recent Romastered collections (which I totally loved) but under the same publisher Microids, so some hope this will be good.
As others have noticed, the artwork looks a bit "off". This is typical for mobile phone games, where the art gets aliased to hell and colours adjusted so it looks bright on a phone. I've tried looking to see if this is a port of mobile phone game but nothing is coming up.
I'm still really interested in this, as I did love the recent Asterix games, and will be buying from GOG
This games looks like the Konami arcade game with re-drawn graphics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LhEovW4Uqw
Goodness, you know I played that years ago. It was bugging me as I knew I had seen an arcade game, I thought it was an Amstrad CPC game but haven't been able to find it.
Even if it isn't an updated version of the arcade game, let's hope this version is as good as the arcade game.
Thanks for the nostalgia trip there.
