Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Scott Pilgrim Bringing 8-Bits of Awesome To XBLA on August 25th

Consider Summer of Arcade unofficially extended by a week, as Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is set to make its debut on the Xbox Live Arcade a mere fortnight after the timed PSN-exclusive, according to an IGN report direct from Comic-Con.

Ubisoft's adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's cult comic book, coincides with the launch of the movie, but takes its influence from classic 8 and 16-bit scrolling retro beat 'em ups like Streets of Rage and Final Fight.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World will be released on XBLA the week after Summer of Arcade ends, on August 25th, 2010. Check out the trailer and a few screens to see what all the fuss is about.

@10 Have you not seen The Last Airbender.
I think this game has got potential. Its a hard genre to screw up so hopefully ubisoft will put something worth buying together.

The movie could be good, but why'd they have to put that godawful Micheal Cera as Scott?!?

You clearly haven't seen "The Room"

Anyway this looks like a bunch of fun! I'm a huge fan of old school brawlers, so this is right up my alley. With it's art style and the addition of 4 player co-op, this looks like its gonna be a first day buy for me.

I read about this in Game Informer a few months ago, but I had no idea it was going to look like that. #14 was half right, it looks like Castle Crashers, but better. I just hope its not 1200 points.

@ 10 - Go watch Bloodrayne.

Not only will you want to bash your face into a rusty industrial fan, but you'll probably never forget the name Uwe Boll again which is worse than the fan face bashing.

I'm zo glad that the timed exclusive is only 2 weeks! I was worried it was going to be months, o rnot till ext year. I'm so excited! and i dont know why everyone (well alot of people) think the movie looks bad! i think so far of what I've seen its acurate to the books. and why does eveyone hate michael Cera? I've liked him alllll the way back when he was Georgemichael and he hasnt put out that many bad movies! i know soooo many actors that have put out poop that people still adore.

I love old-school brawlers like this, and I'm pretty interested in the game, but seriously, who is Scott Pilgrim? I know nothing about this, and I can't imagine the movie/game have much of anything to do with each other from the look of it.

I've been waiting SO LONG for a Paul Robertson game.

FINALLY. Godddddammnnnnnnn. I know little to nothing of Scott Pilgrim, but what I know of Paul meant I would have paid for this as a full retail just to declare my love of his work.

I suggest the curious look up 'Pirate Baby Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006' and 'Kings of Power 4 Billion' on youtube.

The movie really does beg the question What life would be like if it was more like a video game? Ideas like these will push the industry down a good path, I look forward to more creative games, and any ideas in the future.

What the Fuck. I want to play as Wallace. Stills is cool and all but nothing can beat Wallice. I hope those aren't the only four playable chracters. And yeah, I will buy this game two times just for O'Maley and Robertson ;P

Castle Crashers... Seriously has any body else picked up on that?
At least Castle Crashers had online co-op, IGN said that its local only.

This game does look really good though, i love the retro look.

@29: Yeah, the movie and book look like their going to be fairly different. not like "they've cut out all this stuff" different, more of "they changed some of this stuff" different. I still think it's going to be pretty good though. But we'll see.
The game will be more like the book, I'm pretty sure. The "defeat the twins simultaneously" achievement is going to be pretty hard to get. But they had to add it because it was in the book :) .

You should definitely watch the movie (Aug. 13) or read the books (the last one came out today) if you can.

Too many underaged gamers on here..

Castle Crashers? Aside from the 4-player co-op the game has nothing in common with it other than being a hack-n-slash (which is a weapon-using version of a beat 'em up).

Anyone here with hair on their balls would know to compare this with River City Ransom instead.

@47 I get what your saying but most people dont even know what River City Ransom is. Plus i bet Castle Crashers is the closets thing they ever played to these type of games.

btw its a great game, beat it on the psn and will be getting it on xbla on release day.

Epic game, for an supposedly 'epic' movie. The books are something I've only glanced at, but this game will hinder my willpower. Already got my 1600 ready.
