I love the Scott Pilgrim game. First, it’s based off an amazing body of work, and adapted beautfiully; second, it’s an incredibly fun side-scrolling beat ’em up the likes of which needs to be supported. So I’ve been waiting for this DLC for a very long time. These type of games demand multi-player (it’s always more fun doing side-scrolling with friends), but while it supported local co-op you couldn’t team up with friends online. Now you can, and a brand new playable character, Wallace Wells, has been added into the mix as well.
Read the full press release below for all the details and then get to playing it!
