We’ve officially reached the point where obscure European PlayStation 2 titles are getting the remaster treatment. Microids announced earlier today that it’s bringing 2006’s forgotten Asterix & Obelix XXL 2: Mission: Las Vegum to the PlayStation 4 on 29th November. Bizarrely this will actually mark the second re-release of the title, as it was also rebuilt for handheld platforms over a decade ago.
The platformer, which is based upon the French comic book characters of the same name, pokes fun at a host of video game heroes – including Super Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Lara Croft. It’ll be followed by a brand new game in 2019, which Microids claims will be “faithful to the world of comics”.
