    Default Asterix & Obelix XXL (GBA): Coming out in the USA?

    I see this game listed as coming out here soon, but I thought that I had read over at IGN that it wasn't being brought over... it would be a real shame if this wasn't released as it has a very nice looking 3-d engine. Anyone know what's up with it?

    Asterix is just not popular in the US as he is huge in Europe and to a lesser extent Australia.

    He is semi popular in Australia only due to the fact the comic book is 1 of 2 (second is Tin Tin) allowed in School libraries.

    Yeah, I Knew that... it seemed odd to me in the first place that it was originally slated to be released here.

    I don't think the GBA one is coming here, but the PS2 version came out here recently and is only $19.99. Most reveiws were "meh" on it, but play magazine gave it a B+, and I seem to agree with their opinions more so than any other magazine. Odds are I'll buy it sooner or later.

    Keep an eye out for a Canadian release (check out Amazon.ca) as Asterix is well known in the French provinces.
