Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game – Complete Edition comes out 14th January 2021, Ubisoft has announced.
That’s for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Stadia.
The Complete Edition includes the remaster of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game and its original DLCs: the Knives Chau and Wallace Wells add-on packs.
Ubisoft’s fondly-remembered 2D arcade-style beat ’em-up is inspired by Bryan Lee O’Malley’s comic book series and Edgar Wright’s film of the same name. You get to play as Scott Pilgrim, Ramona Flowers, Knives Chau, Stephen Stills, and more.
The game was originally released digitally for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in August 2010 before being delisted in December 2014. Fans had called on Ubisoft to re-release Scott Pilgrim vs The World for years. In August 2020, O’Malley took to Twitter to say Ubisoft hadn’t contacted him or the game’s original developers “in any capacity”. “If the Scott Pilgrim game DOES get re-released and NONE of us are involved, how messed up is that? It’s Messed UP,” he said at the time.
i keep asking around and @ubisoft hasn’t contacted me or @TributeGames or @anamanaguchi or anyone who worked on the game in any capacity. If the Scott Pilgrim game DOES get rereleased and NONE of us are involved, how messed up is that? It’s Messed UP

O’Malley sounded a lot happier when Ubisoft announced the game in September.
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. This game belongs to you. Now please get out of my house
