Ever since its debut on the Xbox Live Arcade, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game has captured beat-em-up fans everywhere. With a fun pixelated art style based on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s bouncy comic style, the fighter was a massive success for the retro revival of the early 2010s. Yet, since then the title has had an interesting history when it was taken off of their respective online stores making the title unpurchasable. As many delisted games never see a re-release, the same was starting to seem true for Scott Pilgrim’s game. However, the title was shown off in a new complete edition at Ubisoft’s online event in September of 2020. After a delay to later this month, the team is finally following up on their physical release promise with Limited Run Games showcasing an extensive catalog full of Scott Pilgrim flair.

The physical case comes with a reversible cover featuring some classic artwork and all-new renditions by Bryan O’Malley of both Scott and Ramona in familiar hedgehog poses. Limited Run Games is offering a few editions with the first special edition featuring the full original soundtrack for the game, a world map, and a character sticker sheet. The KO! edition includes a collectible concert case, drum sticks, and even guitar picks. Limited Run is also adding collectible pins with a full set coming in a Ramona Flowers purse. You can check out the pre-order on their site when it goes live for a few weeks starting next week on January 15. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World The Game Complete Edition releases in just under a week on January 14.
