Released back in 2010 for the PS3 and Xbox 360, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is a beat ’em up title that was made as a tie-in to Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim movie. While the game received favorable reviews, it was never released on other platforms.
Now though, Ubisoft has released Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition for the PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, and Stadia. The game is also playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility.
The Scott Pilgrim game’s physical release will come in the following versions:
- Standard Edition (USD 34.99) – Includes a reversible cover featuring new art from original game artist Mariel Cartwright and series creator Bryan Lee O’Malley, “Leo’s Place” ticket stub, and a full-color instruction booklet.
- Classic Edition (USD 54.99) – Includes the standard game, a deluxe hard clamshell retro box, CD soundtrack from Anamanaguchi, folded overworld map, and sticker sheet.
- O. Edition (USD 139.99) – Includes the Classic Edition, “Sex Bob-omb” guitar picks, drum sticks, a cassette tape soundtrack, a seven card deluxe high-gloss holofoil trading card set, and a hardbound guide book written by Jeremy Parish. All K.O. Edition items will come in an authentic, hinged hard-shell roadie case box with a 3D pop-up scene that includes working lights and sound.
Scott Pilgrim vs The World is described by Ubisoft as:
“In this unique blend of style, humor and classic gameplay, players must help Scott Pilgrim take on enemies, including the League of Seven Evil Exes, to fight for love. They can now 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, the critically acclaimed soundtrack from Anamanaguchi and original cutscenes from Bryan Lee O’Malley, creator of the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World graphic novel series.
Additionally, players can team up with up to three friends locally or online to defeat foes, revive each other and share health and coins. Friends can also compete in subspace mini-games and frantic dodgeball, challenge each other to epic battle royale matches or cooperate in the Boss Rush and Survival Horror modes.”
Both the game and the live-action movie are based on the Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series which was published from 2004 to 2010.
