Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game

Scott Pilgrim DLC has last-minute delay

After years of waiting, more waiting

Last week, we reported on an announcement regarding long-anticipated downloadable content for Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game posted to the Tumblr of Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O'Malley which vanished into thin air as mysteriously as it appeared. The post in question had stated a release date of February 5th for the content, which is expected to add Wallace Wells as a playable character and implement online multiplayer.

Today, we've received word that the content has been delayed once again as Ubisoft sent us the following official statement:

The downloadable content for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game has been delayed for fine-tuning and to incorporate feedback from the passionate Scott Pilgrim community. Ubisoft is addressing feedback from the community on the best ways to honor retro games in the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game DLC in an accurate and respectful manner. Ubisoft, and the new team developing the DLC, respect creative properties and, of course, want to be sure to deliver a game experience that is a proper tribute to the Scott Pilgrim franchise.

I suppose their hearts are in the right place and, really, if you're going to take years -- plural -- to add content to a game based on a license, you had probably ought to get it right when you release. It does make one wonder at the relevance of the game by this point, whether anyone will really care if Wallace Wells ever becomes playable. But, then, even writing this has given me a bit of an itch to give Scott Pilgrim another go around so, maybe it'll work out alright after all.

Here's the trailer Ubisoft released to promote the DLC prior to the delay:

Holy shit, App Store. The copyright infringement is real. I didn't buy it, because I'm scared it'll make my iPhone explode and because the comments say the game's a generic zombie title with fake and misleading screenshots.

Playing Halo 5: Guardians, got REALLY invested in this one match. It was intense from beginning to end and I was using A LOT of Power Weapons because it was so fun. We were literally seconds away from victory when the internet cut off. So disappointed. :(
