E3 10: New Scott Pilgrim screens are retromazing!


So, yeah. We all have heard about the Scott Pilgrim PSN game coming from Ubisoft. We have even seen it in action. And these new E3 screens are mostly from set pieces we have seen before. But that does not change the fact that they are awesome!

Even taking away the fact that I am a giant fan of retro video games, this game looks like a lot of fun. It's a 4-player co-op brawler in the vein of The Simpsons Arcade and Castle Crashers, for crying out loud. And look at the gorgeous sprite work. THE GORGEOUS SPRITE WORK! ALSO, THE CHARACTER SELECT SCREEN LOOKS JUST LIKE SUPER MARIO BROS. 2! What's not to love?!

By the looks of these screens, the potential for this game to be incredible is obviously there. I just hope the game focuses more on solid gameplay rather than clever book/movie references. If so, this really could be one of favorite games of the year. I really am in love with the way it looks. So beautiful ...

I am getting my hands on this game in the next couple days, so check back here for my full E3 impressions.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game hits PSN on August 10th.
