The video game based on the comic book sensation of the, one second, let me check here... late 2000s. I guess the Scott Pilgrim comics are ten to fifteen years old now. I guess the movie adaptation is ten years old now. I guess we all march inevitably towards the grave!

Anywho, the game will release this week, per Ubisoft's official website. It's pretty detailed for an older beat 'em up, with levels and upgrades for the six characters and a bunch of alternate modes and/or minigames. This is also the return of Scott Pilgrim vs The World's biggest selling point: An absolutely sick soundtrack by chiptune-adjacent pop/rock band Anamanaguchi.

Anywho, look out for that this week. January 14th. I guess it'll be on Uplay? Or Steam? They haven't said.
