Ubisoft's upcoming videogame adaptation of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World will be a timed exclusive on PlayStation Network.

That's according to a preview in Game Informer, which said the PS3 version would be out in August and an Xbox Live Arcade version would follow later. How much later we don't know.

The game itself is described as a four-player brawler featuring Pilgrim, Ramona Flowers, Kim Pine and Stephen Stills.

There are also unlockable characters (hopefully including Knives Chau 17 years old), modes and levels, but no online play.

The Scott Pilgrim comic books, of which a cool-looking film directed by Edgar Wright is being made, focus on slacker Pilgrim's battle to defeat love interest Ramona's seven evil ex-boyfriends.

There's tons of videogame love in the comics, which - judging by the trailers - will translate into the film, and you'd imagine there will be some in the game, which is also a game.

The film's out in the US on 13th August, so presumably we'll get to see the game around then.
