The game ties in with the upcoming releases of the sixth and final chapter in Bryan Lee O’Malley’s critically acclaimed Scott Pilgrim comic series (Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour) and the highly-anticipated Scott Pilgrim vs. the World feature film (directed by Edgar Wright and starring Michael Cera).
If you’re a fan of the series and/or side-scrolling beat'em-ups like River City Ransom then prepare your nerd senses for some serious tingling. Check out the trailer. (Keep your eyes peeled. Just like the comics, this game has a healthy dose of references to classic video games).
This game is looking to be a perfect storm of nostalgia and fanboyism for me. Color me stoked!
