Rediscover the beloved 2D arcade-style beat' em up inspired by the iconic comic book series and cult classic Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, which celebreated its 10th anniversary last year, on new consoles!

Limited Run Games has announced three special boxed versions of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

The time-limited physical editions - which will be available to pre-order for six weeks from Jan. 15 include a standard Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game edition for $35, a classic edition at $55, and the K.O edition for $140. 

The standard edition includes the standard game and DLC, while the Classic Edition includes a full-color instruction booklet, deluxe plastic clamshell case with reversible coversheet, sticker sheet featuring art from the game, physical soundtrack CD featuring music by Anamanaguchi, The Clash at Demonhead commemorative concert ticket, and an overworld map.

If you have the cash to spare, you can opt for the insanely cool K.O. Edition, which includes everything listed above, plus extra goodies including a "premium hard-shell roadie collector's case box featuring working lights and sound. Opening the case turns on the lights and sound (music from Anamanaguchi) as well as revealing a pop-up scene of Sex Bob-omb."

The K.O. Edition also includes bonus Sex Bob-omb guitar picks, an enamel pin, and full-sized wooden drum sticks with "game art."

Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game – Complete Edition includes the remaster of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game and its original DLCs: the Knives Chau and Wallace Wells add-on packs for new consoles.

The 2D arcade-style beat 'em-up—which was originally released digitally for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in August 2010 before being delisted in December 2014—is inspired by Bryan Lee O'Malley's comic book series and Edgar Wright's film of the same name.

Gamers get to play as Scott Pilgrim, Ramona Flowers, Knives Chau, Stephen Stills, and more.

As previously announced by Ubisoft, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition includes drop-in, drop-out local or online multiplayer, enabling up to four players to wallop enemies as a team and revive each other when the action gets too frantic. 

Players can join forces in the co-op Boss Rush and Survival Horror modes, or compete in PvP dodgeball matches, subspace minigames, and battle-royale throwdowns.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game launches on Jan. 14 for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, Stadia, and PC (including Ubisoft+).

The game will also be playable on Xbox Series X | S and PS5. 

The Limited Run physical copies for PS4 and Nintendo Switch will be available for pre-order starting Friday, Jan. 15 at 10 a.m. Eastern Time in the US.

Limited Run also plans to release physical copies for the Xbox One at a future date.

And in case the game isn't enough, Limited Run’s site also has lots of cool merch including a trading card pack, featuring in-game art of playabale characters and sixteen enamel pins in a special deluxe two-piece box resembling Ramona's Subspace Suitcase, available for pre-orders.
