IGN alerts us to the existence of a sequel to the first A & O video game for the Playstation:

Wednesday Atari announced Asterix & Obelix XXL 2: Mission Las Vegum, a sequel to the first Asterix XXL platforming adventure -- and another interactive dose of the classic comic characters. The only drawback? So far the game is only announced for Europe.

Developed by Etranges Libellules, XXL 2 takes our heroes to Las Vegum, the "city of games." Asterix and Obelix will explore Las Vegum districts -- Little Paris, WCW, LuckSore, Little Venetia, Pirate Island, and SeizeUs Palace -- in a quest to find out why all the most renowned druids of the Roman Empire have disappeared.

Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 is planned for European release in October for PlayStation 2 and PC.
