The Pixelized Pitch That Sold ‘Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World: The Game’ [Exclusive Video]

The hotly-anticipated “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game” goes on sale today, but before Ubisoft tapped the all-star team of pixel artist supreme Paul Robertson and chiptunes masters Anamanaguchi to bring the beloved Bryan Lee O’Malley graphic novel series (and its soon-to-be-released movie adaptation) to the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, the title lived only in the fever dreams of those who believed that the idea of a “Scott Pilgrim” game was so perfect it seemed almost inevitable. But what sold the game publisher on a epic, retro beat-’em-up laden with all the nostalgic trimmings? The answer lies with an extremely awesome and never-before-seen pixelated pitch video that references to everything from “Sonic the Hedgehog” to the Smashing Pumpkins. It’s a must-see for any Scott Pilgrim fan, and ComicsAlliance has the exclusive video just in time for the big release.

The video demonstrates the inspiration that guided the from its genesis all the way through today’s fully-rendered downloadable release on the PS3 with all-new music, animation, graphics and gameplay you can’t find anywhere else. From its very “Mega Man II” intro and boss selection, to its “Ninja Gaiden” inspired final cutscene and The Smashing Pumpkins and The White Stripes 8-bit remixes, it’s chock full of the kind of undeniable enthusiasm that thankfully lead to the launch of one of comic book fandom’s most anticipated titles of the year.
