The Asterix Project

Asterix & Obelix XXL 2: Mission: Las Vegum is an action-adventure game for Windows and PlayStation 2, the sequel to Asterix & Obelix XXL. The game stars are Asterix and Obelix, and features spoofs to many classic games, in the same fashion that the comics spoof historical characters and make many cultural references. One such example of this is the box art that has a passing resemblance to the one seen in Grand Theft Auto III.

A remake called Asterix & Obelix XXL 2: Mission: Wifix was released for the Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable in 2006 and a HD Remaster was released on November 29, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows (through Steam and GOG.com) and Nintendo Switch.

Story[]

Julius Caesar, in another plan to conquer Gaul, builds a theme park called Las Vegum, a parody of Las Vegas. Getafix then swears loyalty to Caesar, and goes to Las Vegum. Asterix and Obelix come to his rescue, with the help of a Roman spy named Sam Shieffer.

Las Vegum is divided in 6 zones: Lutetia, WCW, LuckSore (Luxour), Little Venetia (parody of Venice), Pirate Island, and SeizeUs Palace. Throughout the game, Romans who slightly resemble famous video game heroes Mario (Nintendo), Sonic the Hedgehog (Sega), Crash Bandicoot (Naughty Dog), Rayman (Ubisoft), Pac-Man (Namco) and Ryu (Capcom) appear as frequent enemies, while Lara Croft (Eidos Interactive), here a Roman centurion called Larry Craft, appears as a mini-boss. In addition, Caesar references The Matrix series by calling Asterix "Mr. Anderson".
