Scott Pilgrim vs. The World vs. The Game [ ARTICLE ]
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:
