‘Scott Pilgrim’ Video Game Gets Playable Knives Chau and 2 New Modes
As much as fans loved the retro-but-way-better aesthetic of “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game,” a few reasonable gripes kept it from attaining the gameplay perfection it might have otherwise achieved. This November, Ubisoft’s offering downloadable content will address a healthy portion of the game’s initial kinks plus add new playable character Knives Chau and and two brand new playable modes, all for $1.99 on the PSN or 160 points on the Xbox 360.The two new modes include a weapon-filled arena where characters can duke it out fighter-game style and a dodgeball game that swaps attacks for more good-natured tosses.
Helping to correct initial gaming woes, Ubisoft is also issuing a patch intended to balance the game’s difficulty modes (because it is super, super, hard), fix some bugs and tack on drop-in/drop-out co-op play. Joystiq reports that the new gameplay features will remain local, however, as Ubisoft has no plans to add online multiplayer features.
With any luck, the relatively inexpensive add-ons will result in a more satisfying game for fans, especially since this is both the first and only downloadable content the title will get.
