Scott Pilgrim vs The World vs PSN today!

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

Three months ago, how many of you had heard of Scott Pilgrim? I’ve got to admit, I hadn’t. But after seeing the game at E3, I got really interested in the world created by Bryan Lee O’Malley. Now I’ve read all six of the books (highly recommended), will be seeing the movie this week (again!), and will definitely be playing Scott Pilgrim vs The World later today when it debuts exclusively on PSN.

First take a look at this brand-spanking-new trailer:

If that doesn’t convince you that this game is for you, I’m not sure what will. If you’re all about the 8-bit beat ‘em up style and chiptune music, do read on.

Recently, I (along with writers from a few other gaming sites) had the opportunity to chat with both Bryan Lee O’Malley (the creator of Scott Pilgrim) and Edgar Wright (the director of the upcoming Scott Pilgrim vs The World movie). Both have serious gaming cred; the Scott Pilgrim books are laden with gaming references, and Wright’s Shaun of the Dead and Spaced both prominently featured PlayStation games.

Now I was going to spend a couple of hours carefully transcribing the half-hour conversation and placing the reams of text here. Then I noticed that Game Informer’s Ben Reeves, who was sitting about 4 feet to the right of me during the interview, already did that. You should read it.

My questions were about PSP appearing in Book #6 (O’Malley is a fan of Half-Minute Hero) and how Anamanaguchi got involved in making the game’s (awesome, chiptune) soundtrack.

If you’ve got any further questions, feel free to drop them in, and I’ll see what I can do to get them answered. Otherwise, keep an eye out for the full game (and the free demo) later this afternoon.

    I don’t believe there are any plans for online co-op. That said, it’s one of those games that’s really fun with friends in the room.

IkariAllen said:

August 10th, 9:32 am

@Fantus I keep hearing it offline only sadly.

IkariAllen said:

Anddo said:

    That I do not know. Should be 7 levels, lot of replayability.

Grondinm said:

August 10th, 9:37 am

This looks awesome, but how many people even knew this was a book! Its pretty cool how many movies are based on books no one has heard of, but they make pretty awesome movies!

Kinney1 said:

August 10th, 9:41 am

Um I preorder this game at:

Any word on a soundtrack being available either in the PS Store or an Anamanaguchi website?!

riclucas said:

August 10th, 9:44 am

Dear Playstation,

Please make the store update earlier today… I don’t think I can wait for all the awesome goodies that are planned for today!

Thank you.

Mirai_Zero said:

August 10th, 10:03 am

the game looks really good and i was really stoked to get it but that comment about no online play kinda just turned me off. do you think there will be a update or a patch later to make the game online playable?

top-gun908 said:

August 10th, 10:04 am

Meh, Castle Crashers looks to be a far superior game. Plus no online co-op?

emiru69 said:

August 10th, 10:05 am

Any chances of having the Soundtrack of the movie and the videogame on the Playstation Store in a non distant future (or parallel universe) @(*_=)@
