Asterix at the Olympic Games is Out in Europe

Video Game of the Film Available Now Across Europe for PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS, Wii and PC, Featuring Unique Blend of Live Action, CGI and Gameplay Animation

Atari today announced that the video game Asterix at the Olympic Games for PlayStation®2, Nintendo DS™, Wii and PC is available now at retailers across Europe. The game of the forthcoming live action feature film of the same name, Asterix at the Olympic Games combines live action elements from the film with high-end computer generated and video game animation to deliver fans an original and highly entertaining Asterix experience.

Join Asterix, Obelix and his faithful hound Dogmatix on the road to Greece as they run to the aid of love stricken friend Alafolix. Much fun and madcap adventuring follows as Asterix and his friends enter the fray in their own inimitable style, coming head to head with Brutus, his muscle-bound champion, and of course their ultimate archenemy, the mighty Julius Caesar.

“Atari has a highly successful history of publishing high quality video games based on the universally popular Asterix brand, with over three million games sold in Europe to date,” said Mathias Hautefort, Executive Vice President of publishing and production, Atari. “With this game we’re assuring the continuation of that success by delivering something highly original, of excellent quality, and great fun in a way that only Asterix can be.”

The Wii, PS2 and PC versions of the game feature two gameplay modes: the adventure mode follows the story playing as either Asterix or Obelix, switching characters on the fly and unlocking sporting challenges along the way, while the antique mode lets players play as any one of 12 characters and go head to head with either the computer or a friend in a host of riotous contests. In the Nintendo DS game players take the role of either Asterix or Obelix through more than 120 sporting challenges to become the ultimate victor.

Asterix at the Olympic Games is developed by Etranges Libellules in close collaboration with Asterix licensor Les Editions Albert René and with film production company La Petite Reine. The live action feature film has the biggest production budget of any film in European cinema history and is scheduled for release across Europe in early 2008.
