Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game Physical Release Announced

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game

Following years of unavailability across all platforms, Ubisoft finally answered the call to re-release fan-favorite beat-em-up Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game with a Complete Edition later this month. Originally launched as a companion to the beloved 2010 movie adaptation, the 2021 release is being posed as the definitive version of the retro-themed title, with all DLC characters and multiplayer modes included from the get-go, in addition to availability across nearly all modern platforms. If that wasn’t enough, it appears the digital-only release will not also include a physical disc version.

As part of a partnership with Limited Run Games, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game is confirmed to receive a limited-time physical release for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 starting January 15th. The Standard Edition ($34.99 USD) of the release includes the base game in disc format, a novelty Clash at Demonhead concert ticket, as well as reversible cover artwork. The cover features all-new art inspired by Bryan Lee O’Malley’s original graphic novels, with one side notably made to emulate the classic cover for SEGA Dreamcast title Sonic Adventure.

In addition to this base version, a Classic Edition ($54.99 USD) of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game is also being offered by Limited Run. The special collection includes everything in the Standard Edition, with the addition of a physical CD soundtrack from Anamanaguchi, a full-color instruction booklet, an overworld map, and stickers of the game’s artwork. What makes this version even more unique is the collection’s outer clamshell case, featuring entirely new art as well as an alternate reversible cover featuring Ramona Flowers in the familiar Sonic Adventure pose.

Lastly, Limited Run is also offering an ultimate K.O. Edition ($139.99 USD) of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game, touting an even greater array of extras for the physical release. Everything from the Classic Edition is part of this premium set, with the added bonus of a hardcover game guide, a physical cassette version of the soundtrack, foil trading cards of the 7 Evil-Exes. and an enamel pin based on the game’s mini loading animation. Arguably the best goodies arrive based on Mr. Pilgrim’s rock band Sex Bob-omb, adding specially-themed drum sticks and guitar picks to the collection alongside a hard-shell roadie case, which is fitted with a light-up scene of the musical trio playing a tune from the game’s soundtrack.

Pre-orders for the Standard Edition, Classic Edition, and K.O. Edition are currently set to go live on the Limited Run website starting January 15th (7 a.m. PT / 8 a.m. CT / 10 a.m. ET), lasting for a six-week duration, and ending on February 29th. Though this physical release currently only favors Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 users, Limited Run has also confirmed Xbox One versions of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game are also on the way, but unfortunately, they won’t be available until a “future date.” However, the publisher assured an announcement would be made some time “later in the year.”

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game Complete Edition releases January 14th, 2021 for Google Stadia, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S via backward compatibility.
