Asterix & Obelix XXL2 – Launch Trailer
Most of us have a remaster wish list, with games like Red Dead Redemption and Fallout 3 getting loud calls to get that next-gen touch. However, it might have caught a fair few people off guard that 2006’s Asterix & Obelix XXL 2: Mission: Las Vegum would arrive on PS4 before Bethesda’s classic made a comeback.

For those who missed it the first time around, it was the sequel to 2003’s slightly less convoluted title :argent gta & Obelix XXL, both making their appearances on the PS2, and the release of the remasters ties in with the fact that next year we’ll be getting the 3rd in the series.

This colourful free-roaming 3D action platformer is crammed full of cultural references from the original time of release, most of which can still be laughed at now. That said, the humour and the game both have one thing in common: at times they can be a little dated. There are references to its contemporaries such as Mario, Pacman and even Larry Croft, a fat Roman who dresses in a strappy green top and looks like more than a shadow of his female version.

So, what have the Romans ever done for us? The story follows yet another attempt by Julius Caesar to conquer Gaul. He decides to build Las Vegum which is a huge theme park divided into six zones all referencing casinos in Vegas. You get to visit areas such as LuckSore and Little Venetia during your quest to save Getafix, a druid who seemingly helped Caesar.
