Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game. Released in 2010 as a component promotional tie-in to the function movie and one-half homage to the manga supply materials, Scott Pilgrim The Game nonetheless stands the check of time. Not solely is it simply the very best beat em up in an period when the style noticed a revival, but additionally a warning of what occurs when licensed video video games get pulled from digital retailer cabinets, left in gaming limbo and forgotten. However, Ubisoft made a refined and literal wink and a nod to the beloved Scott Pilgrim recreation getting a contemporary re-release after a tweet by the supply materials’s creator, Bryan Lee O’Malley.

To perceive the supply of the change we now have to attach some dots. The origins start with an internet occasion via the Academy Awards (sure, the Oscars individuals) referred to as “Watch With The Academy,” in which the cast and director of a film live-react to the film in real-time on social media; equal components director’s commentary monitor and stay social media feed. Scheduled for this previous Monday’s occasion was Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World and commentary from director Edgar Wright. If you’re a fan of the movie then it’s price scrolling via Wright’s Twitter feed to see a wealth of behind-the-scenes information and manufacturing stuff on the film. Also price noting is the promotional tweet for the occasion made by Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley, in which he calls for the titular game to come back from the dead.
Ubisoft, ever the tease, responded to O’Malley’s tweet with an emoji. Perhaps that is simply the Ubisoft social media supervisor having some enjoyable, or perhaps a reference for plans to come back. It’s by no means a foul factor when nice video games left to rot within the digital retailer graveyard get a second probability at life, and if any recreation ever deserved that probability it’s Scott Pilgrim. Whether it’s merely a return to the digital storefront or a complete remastered launch of the sport is unknown, if it even means something in any respect. Even simply seeing the title of the sport immediately makes the amazing game soundtrack by chiptune band Anamanaguchi start playing in my head.
So as with most issues in 2020 all we are able to do now could be wait and see. And perhaps eat some bread. Even if it does make you fat.
