39w ago - Sony Producer Guillaume Gad shared a video today showcasing Scott Pilgrim vs. The World DLC including Online Multiplayer and Wallace Wells below.
To quote: When we created a game called Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, we meant it. "But," you might have asked, "what about playing against other Scott Pilgrim fans from around the world?"
Sure, our side-scrolling beat-em-up based on Bryan Lee O'Malley's award-winning graphic novels let's you play as everyone's favorite lovable loser: the titular Mr. Pilgrim.
And yes, you could team up with your pals for some couch co-op, playing as one of Scott's kooky cohorts in this charmingly 8-bit retro-gaming world (all while rocking to the chiptune sounds of ANAMANAGUCHI). But what about online multiplayer?
With the latest downloadable content, your question has been answered. Out now tomorrow on PlayStation Network for $4.99, this new DLC not only adds Wallace Wells to the roster, but also brings online multiplayer to the game. No more crowding on the couch (unless, of course, you want to... but that's your business).
Instead, you can summon your pals from around the world to take on Ramona Flowers' evil exes - and...
174w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a fresh video trailer and announced that Scott Pilgrim vs The World is hitting PSN in North America today and Europe tomorrow.
To quote: 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.
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.
First take a look at this brand-spanking-new trailer:
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...
176w ago - Ubisoft Sr. Brand Manager Michael Micholic has announced today that the soundtrack to Scott Pilgrim vs The World is going old school on PSN.
To quote: Once we decided to go for the old school, side scrolling, beat 'em up style with Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Video Game, we wanted to go all in! We brought in pixel artist extraordinaire Paul Robertson.
The next step was creating an amazing soundtrack. We immediately thought of Brooklyn chiptune rockers, Anamanaguchi. They wowed us (and 5,000 others) at PAX and really captured the sound we wanted for the game.
Here, the guys share their favorite songs from the game.
Ary Warnaar - "Twin Dragons"
I really enjoyed how the Twin Dragons cue came into existence. It was very unexpected. A couple months ago we were playing a show here in Brooklyn with Ok, Go. I was hanging out backstage with one of my good friends Damon who also happens to be one of the most talented chip artists I know (he goes by Starscream with his drummer George).
We were kinda bored and decided to start a collaboration italo-disco song on Game Boy. He started with an awesome bass line and...
177w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has posted up a new video today on the PSN exclusive title Scott Pilgrim vs The World for Comic-Con 2010.
To quote: I really enjoyed Scott Pilgrim vs The World when I played it at E3, despite having zero knowledge of the source material.
Now that I've read the first 5 Scott Pilgrim books in record time (and will be picking up the 6th and final one today), I'm in full on "DO WANT" mode.
Fortunately, we'll be featuring the latest build of the game at our Comic-Con event on Thursday (invites just went out for that, btw - check your email). And Scott Pilgrim vs The World's (PSN-exclusive) debut isn't that far off, either - August 10th.
In the meantime, and just in time for Comic-Con, take a look at the latest trailer.
We'll have more on Scott Pilgrim vs The World shortly after Comic-Con.
I didn't know much of the Edgar Wright-directed, Michael Cera-starring movie hitting later this summer. I had never read any of the comics by Bryan Lee O'Malley (though I'm rectifying that now).
All I know is, I played a game that took me back to my gaming childhood: 8-bit beat'em ups with brightly colored sprites, old-school music, and couch co-op.
The key thing to note: Scott Pilgrim vs The World is debuting exclusively on PlayStation Network, and that you'll be playing it in just about a month: August 10th.
You'll be seeing a lot more about Scott Pilgrim vs The World here on the PlayStation.Blog in the coming weeks, including updates from Comic-Con and a post directly from Anamanaguchi, the famed chiptune band who behind the game's sountrack.
