What’s the opposite of “I’m so sad, so very, very sad”? Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game is finally coming back after getting shelved from digital storefronts six years ago. In an email explaining the situation (yes, we read emails unlike Scott) Ubisoft announced that Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game – Complete Edition will be re-released in 2021, along with the Knives Chau and Wallace Wells downloadable content. Fans can play the digital title on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, PC, and Nintendo Switch. The game will be available to play on January 14th.

And if you thought the 2014 release was incorrigible, think again. The Complete Edition will have players teaming up with up to 3 friends in order to defeat the seven dreaded evil exes. Players will be able to play locally and online — using teamwork to share health and coins and revive each other. Players will find themselves fighting for love against The League of Seven Evil Exes in the mysterious land of Toronto, Canada. Friends can band together to compete in “subspace mini-games, frantic dodgeball or challenge each other to epic battle royale matches or cooperate in the Boss Rush and Survival Horror modes.”
The original Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game was released back in 2010 at the same time the live-action movie from Edgar Wright premiered. The 2-D arcade-style game created a cult following with its “8-bit animation by Paul Robertson, the critically acclaimed soundtrack from Anamanaguchi, and original cut-scenes from Bryan Lee O’Malley, creator of the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World graphic novel series.” The re-release for the game was announced back in September, shortly after the 10th anniversary of the live-action movie. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition will be released digitally on January 14th next year.
