Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World Game - Film Director Edgar Wright Wants It Back

Ubisoft has fanned some flames with a cryptic response to author Bryan Lee O'Malley's request for the game's return.


Scott Pilgrim vs. The World - The Game, Ubisoft's scrolling 2010 beat-em-up based on Bryan Lee O'Malley's hit comic (and Edgar Wright's movie adaptation), hasn't been available for some time. The game was delisted at the end of 2014, likely due to the expiration of one of Ubisoft's licenses, and it has remained impossible to buy since.

Now, during a watch party for Wright's film that O'Malley joined Twitter to take part in, the book's author tweeted out a request to "bring back the Scott Pilgrim game". The official Ubisoft account--which was not tagged in the tweet--issued a simple, cryptic response of an emoji scratching its chin.

Of course, this is not a confirmation that the game is coming back. But at the same time, the game has a bit of a cult following, and to raise people's hopes like this would be cruel.

One other person who wants the game to make a comeback is Edgar Wright--the film's director. He was also responsible for movies like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

This might not be much to go on, but it's enough to give us some hope that the game could return for modern systems--especially since it would be a perfect fit for Switch.

Ubisoft is planning a digital showcase for Summer 2020. We also know that they have an unannounced AAA title due before March 2021, alongside Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, and the rest of their line-up.
