Major Nelson has released the list of content hitting the Xbox Marketplace today. Among the releases is the fickle Scott Pilgrim DLC that introduces online multiplayer and an additional playable …
Development of Scott Pilgrim vs The World was proceeding as normal over at Ubisoft Montreal. The levels were designed, the game was working and all that needed to be done was build the rest of the content and put it together. But then, six months before launch window, Ubisoft’s higher-ups commanded a change in priorities, shifting to bigger next-generation projects.
