O’Malley tweeted during the movie that Ubisoft should “bring back the scott pilgrim game,” after the Xbox Live Arcade / PlayStation Network title was delisted from both stores on December 30, 2014. At the time, it wasn’t clear why the game was taken down, but it was most likely due to licensing issues.

Despite not being tagged in the initial tweet, Ubisoft, which developed the game, responded to O’Malley’s call with a considering emoji, (hopefully) teasing the game’s potential return.
The game was well received by fans of the graphic novel and was praised for its soundtrack upon release, which was composed by the American bitpop band Anamanaguchi.
We reviewed Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game in 2010, calling it “really enjoyable, even if at times it can be really frustrating.” We featured the game in our article featuring 9 licensed games that got it right (and 5 that didn’t).
