With Universal Studios Home Entertainment gearing up for the launch of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World on Blu-ray and DVD, Ubisoft is joining the bandwagon. The game publisher is offering new downloadable content for its Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game. The new content will be available on PlayStation Network for PlayStation3 and Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360 coinciding with the film’s Blu-ray and DVD release on November 9th. Check out this exclusive video interview with Ellen Wong, who plays Knives Chau in the movie.
The download is priced at $2 and includes the new playable Knives Chau character, as well as two new game modes: Battle Royale and Dodge Ball. In addition, Ubisoft will also offer a free patch, which upgrades the player’s original gameplay to co-op.
Developed in collaboration with Universal Partnerships & Licensing, the game is based on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s award-winning graphic novel series and the Universal Pictures film directed by genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright.
The game follows Scott Pilgrim’s quest to date Ramona Flowers by defeating her seven evil exes. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game is a rock ’n’ roll action love story for the 8-bit generation with an arcade-style, beat-’em-up experience inspired by many classic retro games of the ’80s and ’90s.
In Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Edgar Wright brings Bryan Lee O’Malley’s hugely popular graphic novel series to life with gravity-defying action and videogame-inspired graphics. Joining lead actor Michael Cera is one of the coolest ensemble casts ever to share the big screen including Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Live Free or Die Hard), Kieran Culkin (Igby Goes Down), Chris Evans (upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger), Academy Award nominee Anna Kendrick (Twilight series, Up in the Air), Alison Pill (Dan in Real Life), Aubrey Plaza (“Parks and Recreation”), Brandon Routh (Superman), Jason Schwartzman (Funny People), Johnny Simmons (Jennifer’s Body), Mark Webber (Broken Flowers), Mae Whitman (“Parenthood”) and Ellen Wong (“Runaway”). Scott Pilgrim vs. the World also boasts an awesome soundtrack featuring original music by Beck and performances by Broken Social Scene, Metric and more.
