Scott Pilgrim game

When the source material is riddled with countless video game references, it should really come as no surprise that a SCOTT PILGRIM game is being developed to go along with the Edgar Wright-helmed, Michael Cera-led film.

Ubisoft recently confirmed they were on the project, and want you to know that they’re giving it their all. "We're excited to work with Universal to create a video game experience based on the Scott Pilgrim universe," said Christian Salomon, vice president of Worldwide Licensing at Ubisoft. "Scott Pilgrim is a special property, one that is both nostalgic and completely original. The game will provide a fun and unique experience to players and combine all the important elements seen in the film: action, romance, irreverent pop culture references and rock-n-roll."

I don’t think there’s really any question that this should be a 2-D comic art side-scroller as opposed to say, trying to render Michael Cera’s confused expression in 1080p 3D. There are zero other details on the game so far (including potential platforms), but it will arrive in time for the movie's release in 2010.

Extra Tidbit: Ehh Ubisoft, I say give it to Braidís Jonathan Blow.

Ubisoft is...

...definitely not the best game studio on earth (in my opinion), and they've definitely had their fair share of misses, but they do tend to be more innovative and take more time with their projects than many of their competitors. I'd say this is a pretty decent fit, although I agree an indie developer would've been ideal.
