Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition may have a release date now, but that’s not stopping the series’ creator. After that announcement, Bryan Lee O’Malley has stated he’s “working on getting” a physical version of the game made as well.

 

 

Part of why this return is a big deal is that the original PS3 and Xbox 360 releases are lost media for anyone who didn’t already purchase them. Previously delisted, likely due to licensing issues related to the theatrical movie from Universal, any sort of physical release would keep that from happening again.

O’Malley has long advocated for the game’s return, with other supporting voices including the film’s director Edgar Wright, the game’s composers Anamanaguchi, and other artists and developers tied to the game’s creation. While we’re thankful (and excited) for this tenth-anniversary digital return, we’d love a physical version of this fantastic beat em up as well.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition will release for Switch and other platforms on January 14th, 2021.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
