After years of lobbying its developer and publisher Ubisoft, the legion of fans behind Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game has finally won.
The 16-bit homage-style beat'em'all adapted from the eponymous comic book will finally arrive on current (or previous?) Generation consoles in an all-new port of the Complete Edition subtitle – six years after its release. disappearance of digital blinds.
Thus, it is currently not possible to purchase the original PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game on PSN and Xbox Store – the game was taken off digital sales platforms in December 2014, four years after its release in August 2010. No explanation was given at the time for this sudden disappearance – but it is a safe bet that this is a story of the expiration of the license rights.
The Sex Bob-ombs on the return
Released in conjunction with the feature film Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Movie in 2010, the game marks a comeback at the same time as the film's re-release this year – a coincidence that is not really a coincidence: its director Edgar Wright had campaigned alongside the author of the tape original cartoon Bryan Lee O'Malley for a reissue of the game from Ubisoft on Twitter; a call that would have been heard by Ubisoft according to the designer last September .
This new port was made official last Monday in a Facebook post – an Ultimate Edition that will include the original game alongside its two expansion packs Knives Chau and Wallace Wells. Taking more or less the plot of the original comic book, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game takes the classic codes of beat'em'all in horizontal scrolling with many references to video game culture and nerd in general; playable up to four players online or locally, it will be necessary to fight against the army of henchmen of the 7 ex of Ramona Flowers to allow Scott Pilgrim to fall in love with the beautiful. The various Zombie Hordes, Prisoner Bullet and Battle Royale game modes (see no coincidence with recent trends) will also return.
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game Edition Complete will come to end this long absence on January 14, 2021 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC via Steam and as well as on Google Stadia.
