Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game 2021 Release Date Announced

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.

The Complete Edition will include the base game as well as the Knives Chou and Wallace Wells DLC packs.
