Scott Pilgrim, Ten years after its launch on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Scott Pilgrim vs the World: The Game is coming back in a Complete Edition for current-gen consoles. Scott Pilgrim vs the World: The Game Complete Edition lands this holiday season for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch, Stadia and PC. It includes the full game, plus the Knives Chau and Wallace Wells add-on packs.
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.
The original game was only available for four years, until it was delisted from digital storefronts in 2014, likely due to licensing issues. In the ensuing years, its fans have been particularly insistent about seeing the game come back.
The game originally came out for PS3 and Xbox 360, building up a bit of a cult following for its pixellated charms, but was delisted several years ago and seemingly lost to the sands of time and licensing agreements. Thankfully, all of those problems have seemingly been resolved.
The Complete Edition simply delivers the original game and the Knives Chau and Wallace Wells DLC characters.
