Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is ten years old this week. Of those ten years though, the game has only been available to purchase for four of them, but that could hopefully be changing soon. Bryan Lee O’Malley, the creator of the Scott Pilgrim comic series that the game, as well as the movie of the same name, were based on, tweeted out some positive news this evening:
O’Malley has been trying to get Scott Pilgrim back up for sale for a while, and leading up to the film’s anniversary, director Edgar Wright also shared his desire to get the game back into the hands of players too. Who knows what will come of this, if anything, but the sheer fact that Ubisoft is seemingly willing to play ball, it’s the best news about a potential Scott Pilgrim revival in years.
In our recent look back on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, we said “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is a lot of things, from a respectful adaptation of a beloved indie comic darling to a love-letter to games of yesteryear. Above all else though, it’s simply a great time whether you’re a fan of the books, the film, or even if this is your introduction to this universe.”
