It's been 10 years since Scott Pilgrim became a surprise Xbox Live Arcade brawler hit. This coming holiday season, Scott and the crew are back in action to beat up on some evil exes all over again.
Revealed during today's Ubisoft Forward stream, the retro-styled beat 'em up Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game returns with a complete edition this holiday season. The old-school brawler will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and PC.
It looks like everything from the original will be included, including minigames like Dodgeball and the "Bass Hero" boss fight section. The Complete Edition will also have Knives Chau and Wallace Wells as included characters, so you can beat up seven evil exes with even more fighters.
Despite the enduring legacy of the Scott Pilgrim game, it seemed like there wasn't much hope for a re-release for a long time. Those involved with it, including Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O'Malley certainly gave off mixed signals about its potential return.
Today, at least, it seems like we'll finally have a version of Scott Pilgrim to carry forward into the forseeable future. "Huge thank you to the fans who never shut up about the Scott Pilgrim game, not once, ever, even for one second to let me sleep," O'Malley tweeted today following the reveal. "This game belongs to you. Now please get out of my house."
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game Complete Edition will hit PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch in holiday 2020.
