Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World video game

Gameinformer got the first hands-on with Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World video game from Ubisoft, which will be available as a download only on the Playstation network.  It could come to 360 later, but the timeframe is unclear.

It's a 4-player brawler, just like it should be in classic video game style.  You can play as Scott, Ramona, Kim Pine, or Stephen Stills so far, with the possibility to expand. The levels are the same as the different book volumes, so you can play your favorite trade volume, which is kind of awesome.

It's pretty clear fans of the book are going to LOVE playing this.

Look for it along with the movie release in August.

    Wait?! So it’s like STREETS OF RAGE II?! 

    I MUST HAVE IT NOW TWICE YAY!!!!! 

  2. Yup, I’m all over this.

  3. This looks perfect for the book’s spirit. As a sucker for retro-gaming, I’ll be there, playing the frig out of this.

    Paul is right, Streets of rage 2 + Pilgers = awesome. 

  4. Does this mean I have to buy a PS3? Sighhh…

  5. Girrrrl, this looks kinda River City Ransom ("he said the word!") to me.  And I’m gonna eat it up with a spoon.  Assuming it comes out for XBLA, of course.

  6. Also of note is that pixel artist Paul Robertson is handling art duties on the game. For a great example of Paul’s work I highly recommend watching Pirate Baby’s Cabana Battle Street Fight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5zpNfTfGZU

     

  7. Done.

  8. This looks like it’s gonna be downloadable to PSP too?

  9. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaant

  10. yea im getting it for sure

  11. LMFAO!!! OMFG!!! O_O I AM IN LOVE!*

    @PAULMONTGOMERY: tHE ONLY WAY THIS GAME COULD LOOK ANY BETTER IS IF THEY’D HAVE SOUNDTRACK FROM THAT GAME. GOD FORBID, IF THAT HAPPENED I DON’T THINK MY HEART COULD TAKE THAT EXCITEMENT!

    *translation: "I will buy it."

  12. Awesome, there’s finally a benefit for me owning a PS3 over a 360! I’ll be waiting late at night for the minute that I can download this.

  13. this looks friggin fun

  14. no PC Download. : (

  15. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!! There is only joy.

  16. *SPPRRRRR*

    OOH….

    MY….

    GAWD!!!!

     

     

  17. Looks like River City Ransom to me! 

  18. Yeah, I think it’s more River City Ransom, but a brawler none-the-less. And @Mangaman, Anamanaguchi is doing the soundtrack for the game, which is still awesome.

  19. aweSOME!

  20. I’ve had my PS3 since Christmas, and now there is finally a game on the PSN store I am willing to drop money on.

  21. Holy crap, that looks incredible

  22. It’s a shame this doesn’t have online multiplayer. Only local. I’ll still be purchasing this either way. Finally got around to reading the books and they’re a lot of fun. Going to be awesome watching the movie and playing the game come August. 🙂

  23. Looks awesome!

  24. Looks great. I was prob gonna pick it up for the PS3 anyway (can’t stand the crappy d-pad on the the 360 pad) and this looks like it’s gonna use the d-pad more than the stick.

  25. So glad I bought the PS3!

  26. Hopefully this game won’t suffer from the same issues Ubisoft’s TMNT4 port suffered from. Can’t really argue with who they got to do art and music though. Really looking forward to this.
