‘Scott Pilgrim’ game returns this holiday after getting delisted

Share

During the recent episode of Ubisoft Forward, it was revealed that Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is returning to the gaming libraries this holiday season.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game was a 2010 title based on the e Bryan Lee O’Malley comics. It is a side-scrolling beat ’em up game published by Ubisoft.

Accordingly, the game was delisted in 2014. Although the reason behind was uncertain, reports have it, the delisting may have something to do with its expired licensing.

Everything we know so far about its re-release

First, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is returning this year. It will be made available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Stadia, PC, and UPLAY+, per Inverse.

Its fate on the PlayStation 5 remains to be seen. Although the media outlet notes that the relation of the game’s release window to that of the Sony next-gen console.

Nevertheless, current-gen titles will likely be playable to the next-gen consoles of the same family. Originally, the game was made available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Moreover, the game will be a complete release. This means it will come with a DLC on top of the original game. Knives Chau and Wallace Wells are confirmed playable characters.

It will reportedly retail at US$14.99[AU$20.56]—similar to its original tag in 2010.

However, the re-release won’t be a remaster or a remake.

Why re-release now?

As mentioned, the game got delisted in 2014. Unfortunately, no solid reason was discussed during the digital event.

Although, many believe it may have something to do with the title franchise’s 10th anniversary. As seen in the official comeback trailer, Scott Pilgrim comically punched through a 10th-anniversary cake.

Last month, the title’s comic creator, O’Mally, tweeted that he’d be as “surprised” as the fans if Ubisoft decides to re-release the game. He did say in his subsequent tweet that should the game be released without his knowledge, including the others involved in the game in any capacity, would be “messed up.”

The tweets were posted on the day before the exact date of the game’s 10th-year anniversary—August 13.
