Ubisoft has announced Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game - Complete Edition, due out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Stadia "holiday 2020".
The official trailer is below:
The Complete Edition includes the remaster of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game and its original DLCs: the Knives Chau and Wallace Wells add-on packs.
Ubisoft's fondly-remembered 2D arcade-style beat 'em-up is inspired by Bryan Lee O'Malley's comic book series and Edgar Wright's film of the same name. You get to play as Scott Pilgrim, Ramona Flowers, Knives Chau, Stephen Stills, and more.
The game was originally released digitally for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in August 2010 before being delisted in December 2014. Fans had called on Ubisoft to re-release Scott Pilgrim vs The World for years. In August this year, O'Malley took to Twitter to say Ubisoft hadn't contacted him or the game's original developers "in any capacity". "If the Scott Pilgrim game DOES get re-released and NONE of us are involved, how messed up is that? It's Messed UP," he said at the time.
i keep asking around and @ubisoft hasn't contacted me or @TributeGames or @anamanaguchi or anyone who worked on the game in any capacity. If the Scott Pilgrim game DOES get rereleased and NONE of us are involved, how messed up is that? It's Messed UP— Bryan Lee O'Malley (@bryanleeomalley) August 11, 2020
And here's how O'Malley, who had teased this evening's announcement, reacted to the news:
Huge thank you to the fans who never shut up about the Scott Pilgrim game, not once, ever, even for one second to let me sleep. This game belongs to you. Now please get out of my house— Bryan Lee O'Malley (@bryanleeomalley) September 10, 2020
