Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is a timed exclusive for the PlayStation Network. How long of a time is still unclear, but it will inevitably be available for Xbox Live.

The game is basically a Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari Street Gangs River City Ransom style beat-um-up with the options of playing as either Scott Pilgrim, Ramona Flowers, Kim Pine or Stephen Stills. You can level up, buy enhancements for your characters and up to four can play at the same time, but there is currently no online support (hopefully that changes).

Now, if you’ve ever read a Scott Pilgrim book or even glanced at a back cover then you know that this is definitely the way a Scott Pilgrim game should look. Old school gameplay, sprites, chiptune music and brawling. Plus, having Paul Robertson, one of the coolest sprite artists ever, handling the art direction makes this just that much more awesome. Definitely looking forward to downloading this when it comes available for the PlayStation 3 this August.

Here’s some Paul Robertson awesomeness:

    Ugh, this is the sort of thing that both excites and confuses me. This game, like Mega Man 9 and 10 before it, does not LOOK like a PS3 or 360 game. Not that I have any problem with that, no way. But what I don’t get is why these games can’t be released on the PSP and/or the DS.

    Horray! Finally, a PSN timed exclusive! I’ve been sick to the teeth with XBLA timed exclusives.

    I’m just hoping that it comes through psp or ds at some point.

    I had to Google: “Who the f**k is Scott Pilgrim”. Suffice to say, that just made me more confused
