Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game has escaped video game purgatory and Ubisoft has announced the long-awaited return will be available on platforms starting on January 14, 2021.Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game was a licensed, 2D beat-em-up developed and released by Ubisoft in 2010 to coincide with the release of Edgar Wright’s live-action movie adaptation of the graphic novels by Bryan Lee O’Malley.
The game developed a cult following for its throwback gameplay, 2D pixel work from artist Paul Robertson, and the soundtrack by indie chiptune rock band Anamanaguchi. It was very much a supernova of interesting and unique talents working together.
However, tragedy hit in December 2014 when Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game and its two DLC packs were delisted on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. The reason for the delisting was never made clear, though many have cited a potential issue with the Scott Pilgrim license expiring.
10 years later in 2020, shortly after the anniversary of the Scott Pilgrim movie, Ubisoft revealed Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition will be rereleased on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia.
