Scott Pilgrim Gets it Together, Also Gets a Video Game

For the eight of you Scott Pilgrim fans out there that haven’t heard the awesome news, everyone's favorite slacker, Scott Pilgrim, is finally making his way to an Xbox 360 and PS3 near you this August.

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!


  1. I'm excited to see a Scott Pilgrim post. I've been a fan of the comics before they became so mainstream and got a movie. You can bet I'll have this game.

  2. I started reading the comics right before they announced the movie, so I just missed being a poser. I can't wait for volume 6, the movie, or this game!

  3. Same! I am excited for the next volume, and I love Michael Cera so I can't wait to see him as Scott... and this game, wow, seeing as how I loved River City Ransom, and other side scrollers (like the old school TMNT game! and the one on sega.. umm Golden Axe maybe?), I will definitely be purchasing this on day one. I should have known Jessie would have cool friends.
