Scott Pilgrim Video Game Details Emerge

BOOM widget 132672 Ubisoft's comic and movie-inspired video game Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is a downloadable side-scrolling beat 'em up, Game Informer reveals, coming to the PlayStation 3 in August and then Xbox 360 sometime later.

Supporting up to four offline players, the game follows the events of the tongue-in-cheek comic and (presumably) the upcoming film, with Game Informer writing that "the levels follow along with the book volumes, as world three takes place inside the club where our heroes take on rival band The Clash at Demonhead just like in [book three]."

In related news, a new trailer for the comic-inspired film--directed by Edgar Wright, starring Michael Cera and expected to hit theaters on August 13--recently arrived: BOOM video 5208
