Scott Pilgrim: The Game!

I know there's a few of us here that a big fans of Bryan Lee O'Maley's Scott Pilgrim comics. You may have heard that it's currently being made into a film by none other than Edgar Wright, who again, I know a lot of us are big fans of.

The best thing about the movie adaptation is perhaps that the franchise gets 'marketing guys'. And we all know what 'marketing guys' love, don't we? That's right: VIDEO GAME TIE-INS! Appropriately, the game will take the form of a side-scrolling beat-em-up that will be downloadble: presumbly through PSN and XBLA. There are no more details yet, but Ubisoft are expected to make a full announcement in the week.

Whether it uses O'Malley's graphic style, or imagery from the live-action counterpart is yet to be seen. Hopefully it'll be the former and O'Malley will be heavily involved. It's awesome to see Scott Pilgrim becoming a videogame, especially as the comic itself is so heavily influenced by gaming. Should be a match made in heaven.
