Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is still a fan-favorite movie to this day and the video game, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game was equally loved. It's why many were depressed when the game was removed from online stores years ago, making it impossible to purchase, and why many fans have been begging for a re-release. The time has seemingly come as Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O'Malley has revealed that Ubisoft has contacted him.
Contacted him for what you may ask? That's a dumb question because you already know what it's about.
Ubisoft did originally publish the game back in 2010 before delisting it in 2014 but they did tease interest in bringing the game back. Not much news has come until Lee O'Malley tweeted about them contacting him, which means that we're a few steps closer to a Scott Pilgrim game re-release, which would make 2020 a whole lot better if you ask me.
Playing similarly to brawlers like Final Fight and Streets of Rage, the Scott Pilgrim game lets you control Scott Pilgrim (duh), Ramona Flowers, Kim Pine, and Stephen Stills as they battled the Seven Evil Exes of Ramona. Knives Chau and Wallace Wells were later added as DLC, while NegaScott could be unlocked once you beat the game.
They honestly don't have to do much remastering since the game is still gorgeous, though we wouldn't complain about more characters and gameplay modes. Let's just hope that Bryan Lee O'Malley talks some sense into Ubisoft and brings back the game because we've all been waiting a long time for it.
If we're lucky, we could be getting Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game sooner rather than later. Let's hope it comes out on the Nintendo Switch.
