Following a massively successful Facebook launch, garnering over 2 million players, as well as an iOS soft launch in Canada, Austria, and Switzerland, Asterix and Friends is finally available to download from the App Store worldwide.
It’s up to you to help the famous Asterix and his friends Obelix, Dogmatix, and many more, to build a Gaulish village and fight Caesar.
Players get to set out on an epic adventure, exploring the world and joining forces with friends to create powerful guilds and fighting back against the Roman army. There are humerous quests to complete that will tax your brain as well as tickle your funny bone as you make your way through the Roman legions and camps and onward to Egypt.
The mobile game features all the content of the web version, and also has cross-play with the Facebook game. Bandai Namco will launch various in-game events during the year, such as Fog Event at Halloween, when players will be able to receive new content, such as temporary characters, items and recipes, as well as new quests and achievements.
“We have been working very hard on the game during soft launch, and the fantastic feedback received by players has really helped us shape the game and improve it further. The decision to add the new crossplay feature, for example, came directly from them! I can’t wait to see the game released in the hands of players all over the world! We have many special events and new features planned for the months to come, so this is just the beginning…” said Massimo Caporale, Producer and Product Owner at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe.
“Over the last two years, our Asterix game has grown to be our very own baby. That’s why we’re so excited that we’ve been able to partner with Bandai Namco to finally get the mobile version out to all the Asterix fans, including a Facebook Cross-Play feature and much more.” Said Harald Riegler, CEO of Sproing.
