O’Malley Talks about the Scott Pilgrim Video Game and Its Ties to TMNT

It’s been a good year for Scott Pilgrim fans, with the release of the latest book in February, the “Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World” movie in development, and now the news that a Scott Pilgrim video game is in the works.

The “Scott Pilgrim” series, about a semi-heroic slacker who must defeat his new girlfriend’s evil exes, has always been peppered with references to video games, particularly old school sidescroller favorites like Super Mario Brothers; Scott’s opponents actually turn into change when he defeats them in a shoutout to the coinage of SMB.

More about the vision for the Scott Pilgrim video game after the jump.Now fans are freaking out at the news that Scott Pilgrim is about to become a sidescroller itself, in an upcoming game by Ubisoft Montreal from the same team that worked on “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” for Gameboy Advance. The game follows the six-volume graphic novel series from Oni Press, and will be released simultaneously with the upcoming film in 2010.

While it’s too early for any visuals, “Scott Pilgrim” creator Bryan Lee O’Malley talked to ComicsAlliance about his vision for bringing the slacker hero of comics from the page to pixels. “I wanted something classic and old-school, and more like the books” said O’Malley, who will be consulting about the game on a weekly basis. Asked what other video games the finished product might he like, he described it as “kind of like River City Ransom, or the arcade Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game.”
