Earlier today, it was announced that the game has been delayed to January 2021 thanks to a post on its official Facebook page. The game’s rerelease was first announced in September during Ubisoft Forward. It’ll include everything from the 2010 game plus its downloadable content.
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World was first created by O’Malley in 2004 as a graphic novel series. For those who don’t know, the series follows Scott Pilgrim as he has to fight the seven deadly exes of Ramona Flowers so he can date her. In 2010, Universal Pictures released the movie adaptation from director Edgar Wright. At the same time as the movie, Ubisoft released Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, an ode to 8-bit and 16-bit side scrollers. The game supports four-player co-op where you can play as Scott, Ramona, and other characters from the series.
The original game was delisted from the PSN and Xbox Live in 2014 and hasn’t been available for download since. However, Both Ubisoft and O’Malley have teased a rerelease of the game over the past couple of months. Personally, the movie was my first introduction to the series and it’s one of my favorites. I didn’t get a chance to play the game and it’s awesome that Ubisoft is finally rereleasing it for everyone to play.
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition launches on January 14 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Google Stadia, and PC. You can also play it on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S through backward compatibility. As we receive more news on the game, we’ll be sure to let you know.
