Ubisoft's Scott Pilgrim DLC is delayed once again
After a now deleted post on the series' creator Bryan Lee O' Malley's tumblr and a post by Xbox Live's Major Nelson, many fans of 2010's Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World thought that they would finally be getting their hands on the long awaited second installment of DLC come February 5. It would bring online co-op and Wallace Wells as a playable character. However, it seems as though the DLC has been delayed once again.
Publisher/developer Ubisoft sent out this message to Destructoid...
While this disappoints me, I honestly feel like this will be the last delay this DLC installment will receive, as Ubisoft looks to have realized many of the series' fans are craving extra content for the 3 year-old game. However, I've been wrong before.
You should check out the Graphic Novel series, as the game is more based on that than it is the movie. The series is actually quite long compared to the movie, and it's a very interesting read.
Never saw the movie, never played the game, but I do own the soundtrack. Love them chiptunes....
No. Like steam & 3DS
I fuckin' give up. Fuckin' Duke Nukem Forever of DLC.
Hmmm, I don't know if it will get to a lawsuit stage. It looks like the animation in question that was copied was the pink whirlwind that Amy Rose can turn into from Sonic Battle. In Scott Pilgrim the whirlwind is used (pretty blatantly copied) as the bottom half of Wallace's end level warp animation. These were just quick animations used to transition the characters offscreen at the end of the stage (example Mario Warppipe, Kirby's Warpstar, Mega Man Teleport beam, etc). Seeing as this is pretty transparently copied as it is, and it is just one animation out of the entire character, it's a pretty quick fix. Somebody probably got fired for ripping off another company's work, and Wallace will likely get somebody else's animation copied for his end level warp (which is fitting, as it seems like he's mostly a Scott clone, asset-wise). Cut, paste, pallet-swap, and a test later and we can finally get this DLC...
You have got to be kidding me. Just hurry and release this!
Guess who's drunk. I guess Ubisoft...
What needs to be done at this point is just make Online Multiplayer a Title Update and Wallace 120 MS Points or something like Knieves
I'm not sure, but the game was also released by THQ. Although the particular sprite animation in question is a reference of some sort, Ubisoft could be sued up the ass for it
But that game is owned by Sega ? Did the same team work on both games or something ? Are there not going to be lawsuits up the butt for Ubisoft for using assets owned by Sega ?
I'm surprised that RockStar can pull out a whole new campaign with new enemies and story on time. But these guys can't bring out a new character and online play in a retro 3D beat'em up? I'm sure there's more to the story but it does seem rather odd.
Like the PS Vita?
How about, oh I dont know, port this game somewhere else? If you are willing to support game with DLC after 3 years since it launch, why not port it to other platforms?
At this point, I'm really not sure how much longer this is going to be delayed. It's unpredictable.
OH COME THE FUCK ON REALLY....THEY RELEASED A TRAILER FOR THIS GOD DAMN THING! Edit: As commentators on Destructoid pointed out the Sprite for Wallace Wells is a recycled Amy Rose sprite from the GBA 2004 game Sonic Battle http://www.spriters-resource.com/gameboy_advance/sonicbattle/sheet/10042
