Ubisoft’s ‘Scott Pilgrim: The Game’ Gets Anamanaguchi Soundtrack
If indie rock fans were stoked to learn about Beck’s involvement in the “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” soundtrack, chiptunes fans might just be twice as stoked to learn that the music of “Scott Pilgrim: The Game” is in the hands of Anamanaguchi.
The announcement came this weekend at PAX East, where the band debuted the game’s theme song alongside new video clips from Ubisoft’s forthcoming video game based on the comic book series by Bryan Lee O’Malley.
O’Malley himself made his enthusiasm known via Twitter posting:
If you don’t know the names: Paul Robertson and @Anamanaguchi on the game is kinda like @EdgarWright and @Beck on the movie
As something of an Anamanaguchiphile (okay, a pretty friggin’ hearty Anamanaguchiphile), I think the praise is straight up warranted. The band’s chiptunes-enhanced rock is something special that really suits the augmented 8-16 bit era aesthetic the upcoming SP game has going on.
Check out the band’s performance and corresponding images after the jump.
