The Scott Pilgrim Game is Getting Re-Released Six Years After Being Delisted

Scott Pilgrim is coming back to the gaming world, so be sure to watch the trailer here. Announced during Ubisoft's Ubifsoft Forward conference, Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game is returning the consoles this holiday season after years of being delisted. The Scott Pilgrim game re-release will be a delight for gamers who missed out.

Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game, a joyful 2D arcade style beat ’em up, based on the hit graphic novel series, was originally released in August  2010, coinciding with that of the film adaptation. Presumably due to licensing issues, it was unfortunately removed from the Xbox and PlayStation stores in December 2014, becoming a lost gem of the gaming world. Now, a decade after its original launch, most of which being unavailable for far too many, the Scott Pilgrim game re-release is ready to make better the worlds of series fans and newcomers alike.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition will be a remaster of the original game with its original DLCs: add-on packs for Knives Chau and fan favourite, Wallace Wells. The Scott Pilgrim game re-release will be gracing us with its presence during the 2020 holiday season on PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and Google Stadia. Pre-orders aren’t available yet, but you can find more details on what fun you’re in for at the game’s official page at the Ubisoft site.

Hopes of the re-release started as early as May 2020 when series creator, Bryan Lee O’Malley, reached out to Ubisoft over Twitter, asking to bring the game back alongside a re-release of the film building up to the 10 year anniversary of the two. During August, O’Malley confirmed that Ubisoft had reached out to him in return, indicating that the ball started rolling. After the announcement trailer launched during the Ubisoft Forward conference, O’Malley tweeted his fans thanks for their continued, annoying but loving, dedication in helping make the re-release happen. Now, let’s get out of his house.
