Following weeks of speculation and years of anticipation, Ubisoft has confirmed that Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is returning to digital marketplaces as Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition.
Discussions regarding this possible release kicked into overdrive a few weeks ago when the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World movie celebrated its 10th anniversary. Comments made via various social media accounts led many to believe that Ubisoft may be working on some kind of sequel, remake, or re-release of the 2010 video game adaptation of the Edgar Wright film. As you can see, we ended up with a re-release.
Of course, a re-release is really what fans have been asking for this entire time. For those who don’t know, the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World game debuted in 2010 around the same time as the film it was based on. Expectations were fairly low for the digital game based on a movie that most people hadn’t even seen yet.
As it turned out, though, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game quickly became one of the surprise hits of 2010. Essentially a throwback to the days of the 2D beat-em-up genre (especially titles like River City Ransom), Scott Pilgrim complimented its simple (but addictive) action gameplay with a variety of clever design touches that paid tribute to the spirit of the movie without directly lifting them from the film or even the games that it was clearly inspired by. It also featured an incredible soundtrack that some consider to be one of the best in gaming history.
