Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game, finally ready to make their comeback after six long years.
Ubisoft recently announced that the game edition “ holiday 2020” would be officially released somewhere near Christmas this year. The exact date is currently unknown though. Ubisoft revealed the good news with a trailer of the game on their 10th anniversary. The trailer opens on Scott punching through a huge anniversary cake. Further, it was full of gameplay from the title and showed several cut-scenes that looked even better than the original one.
WHAT EXACTLY IS THIS GAME?
The game is inspired by the movie and graphic novel “ Scott Pilgrims vs. The World “. It follows Scott and his friends who are involved in a battle against the league of seven evil exes, who stand between Scott and Ramona’s love. The game can be joined by up to four players locally or online for drop-in,and drop-out actions as Scott, Ramona Flowers, Stephen Stills, Kim, Knives Chau and Wallace Wells. They all can further level up and eventually learn new moves as they move through the game.
The game is mostly loved for its fun gameplay, amusing story, plentiful homages to the retro games and a soundtrack by Anamanaguchi. It is a 2D retro-style evocative version of classic arcade hits like teenage mutant ninja turtles.
