One of the surprise announcements during Ubisoft Forward was the announcement that Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is coming to current platforms!
After a lot of fan support, the impressive Scott Pilgrim game, which launched in tandem with the film ten years ago, is finally coming back. After being delisted from the PlayStation Store and Xbox Arcade back in 2014, fans have been dying for a new way to play the 16-bit beat ’em up.
Since it was a digital only release, the only way to play was on an older console. Even then it had to have already been purchased/downloaded. With the recent anniversary of the film (and game), fans began pushing Ubisoft for some sort of update….and they delivered:
With the return of Scott Pilgrim, players will rediscover the beloved 2D arcade-style beat ’em up game, inspired by the iconic graphic novel series and 2010 Universal Pictures film. Fans will fall in love all over again with the 8-bit animation by Paul Robertson, critically acclaimed soundtrack from Anamanaguchi, and retro cut-scenes from Bryan Lee O’Malley, creator of the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World graphic novel series.
With its unique blend of style, humor and classic gameplay, players will help Scott Pilgrim take on enemies, including the League of Seven Evil Exes to fight for love. To do so, players can embody Scott Pilgrim, Ramona Flowers, Stephen Stills and more unforgettable characters, all featuring their own unique signature moves and attacks. By earning experience points, characters can level up and learn numerous deadly skills.
Additionally, players will have the opportunity to team up with up to three friends locally or online to defeat foes, share health and coins, and revive each other. Friends can also compete in subspace mini-games, frantic dodgeball or challenge each other to epic last-one-standing battles.
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game will hit the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One this Holiday season.
