On August 10th, 2010, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Releasing just says before the film, the sidescrolling beat 'em up was an immediate hit with fans of the comics, boasting visuals inspired by the art of Bryan Lee O'Malley. Unfortunately, the game has since been removed from digital marketplaces, and licensing issues have prevented a re-release from appearing on modern consoles. The game never received a physical release either, making it a sad reminder of the realities surrounding digital media. Ten years after the game's release, fans took to social media to share their memories of the game, and their hopes that it will one day see re-release.

The ball seems to be in Ubisoft's court...
Today's the 10th anniversary of the Scott Pilgrim game. Words can't express how upsetting it is that it's been nearly 6 years and @Ubisoft has slept on a rerelease this whole time.— Scott Pilgrim Propaganda (@BringBackScott) August 10, 2020
...and fans are making their opinions known to the publisher.
@Ubisoft You have one chance. ONE chance to get any ounce of many people's respect back. And the Scott Pilgrim game on the 10th anniversary is it. Otherwise, you lose what little dignity you ever had in our eyes.
That's right. I'm calling you out. Do something. SAY something. https://t.co/jJ7dbAshnd— Silhouettes At Sunset (@LostSubject01) August 10, 2020
Even Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright got in on the fun!

Others have been petitioning Limited Run Games.
@LimitedRunJosh @LimitedRunDoug I am quietly holding on to the smallest sliver of hope that you are going to do some surprise announcement or in collaboration with another group about Scott Pilgrim. I know it is the 10th anniversary, but a lot of chatter about it.— Robert Banks (@robbanks78) August 10, 2020
And even Nintendo!
Some were introduced to the comics and film through the game.
