'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World' (ALL) DLC Adds New Character, Modes, Co-Op

Bryan Lee O'Malley's video game reference ridden comic book series Scott Pilgrim will be made into a side-scrolling beat-em-up with over the top combat. Scott Pilgrim, bass guitarist for totally average garage band, falls in love with Ramona Flowers, but in order to date her, he has to defeat her seven evil exes who are trying to kill him.

Meet charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera). A bass guitarist for totally average garage band Sex Bob-omb, the 22-year-old has just met the girl of his dreams...literally. The only catch to winning Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)? Her seven evil exes are coming to kill him. Genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright tells the amazing story of one romantic slacker's quest to power up with love in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

Scott Pilgrim has never had a problem getting a girlfriend. It's getting rid of them that proves difficult. From the girl who kicked his heart's ass—and now is back in town—to the teenage distraction he's trying to shake when Ramona rollerblades into his world, love hasn't been easy. He soon discovers, however, his new crush has the most unusual baggage of all: a nefarious league of exes controls her love life and will do whatever it takes to eliminate him as a suitor.

As Scott gets closer to Ramona, he must face an increasingly vicious rogues' gallery from her past—from infamous skateboarders to vegan rock stars and fearsomely identical twins. And if he hopes to win his true love, he must vanquish them all before it really is game over.

The new content will be available on PlayStation Network for the PS3 on Nov. 9 and will come later this month on Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360.

The download is priced at $2 and includes the new playable ‘Knives Chau’ character, as well as two new game modes: Battle Royale and Dodge Ball. In addition, Ubisoft will also offer a free patch, which upgrades the player’s original gameplay to co-op.

Co-written and directed by genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead), the film stars some of Hollywood's leading young talent, including Michael Cera (Juno, Superbad), Kieran Culkin (Igby Goes Down), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Live Free or Die Hard), Chris Evans (Fantastic Four series), Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), Mae Whitman (Arrested Development), and Jason Schwartzman (upcoming Funny People).

The live-action Scott Pilgrim vs. the World film is based on a series of award-winning graphic novels by Bryan Lee O'Malley. The series has earned numerous awards including: Entertainment Weekly's Independent Comic of the Year, Wizard's Indie Book of the Year and the Harvey Award for Humor in Comics. Published by Oni Press, the sixth and final volume in the series is set to debut in 2010—also timed to the film release. In the film, Scott Pilgrim (Cera) has just met the girl of his dreams (Winstead), but the only catch to winning her is that her seven evil exes are coming to kill him.
