Weekly Game Music: Another Winter (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game)

New week, new music.  Here’s an excellent music from an indie video game, based off of a movie, based off of a graphic nove- aw, screw it!  Here’s Another Winter from the excellent chiptune band, Anamanaguchi.  It’s from the downloadable game, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is lightly based off of Bryan O’Malley’s graphic novel series, Scott Pilgrim.  Unlike the novels, it starts with Scott Pilgrim meeting and making out with Ramona Flowers, instead of Knives Chau.  From there, the game wastes no time: Scott Pilgrim has to defeat Ramona’s 7 ex-boyfriends, and his girl friend and band-mates, Stephen Stills and Kim Pine gets to join in the fun.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game plays very much like an old-school 2D beat’em-ups.  Up to 4 players can join in on the bash-fest of numerous pixelated thugs and enemies.  To spice things up, one can earn money to learn new abilities and experience points.  Furthermore, many items, including fallen bodies, can be picked up and thrown for extra damage.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game was released on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in 2010.
