One pleasant surprise during the Ubisoft Forward broadcast back in September was the announcement Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition (including Knives Chau and Wallace Wells downloadable content) would be coming to the Switch and multiple other platforms this holiday season.

While an exact release date hasn't been revealed just yet, we shouldn't have to wait much longer. Earlier this week, this re-release was rated for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Google Stadia by PEGI.

"This game has received a PEGI 12 because it features moderate violence and use of bad language. Not suitable for persons under 12 years of age."

If you haven't played this 2D arcade-style beat 'em up game before, it's inspired by the iconic graphic novel series and 2010 Universal Pictures film. Here's a bit extra about what to expect along with some screenshots:

"With its unique blend of style, humor and classic gameplay, players will help Scott Pilgrim take on enemies, including the League of Seven Evil Exes to fight for love. To do so, players can embody Scott Pilgrim, Ramona Flowers, Stephen Stills and more unforgettable characters, all featuring their own unique signature moves and attacks. By earning experience points, characters can level up and learn numerous deadly skills."

"Additionally, players will have the opportunity to team up with up to three friends locally or online to defeat foes, share health and coins, and revive each other. Friends can also compete in subspace mini-games, frantic dodgeball or challenge each other to epic last-one-standing battles."
