Since Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game released last month, people have been wondering when we were going to unlock the final secret character in the game. Nega Scott is easily attainable in the game, but there has always been a series of question marks indicating one character was missing. Speculation pointed to Knives Chau, Scott's 17 year old ex-girlfriend, and that she would be an unlockable with the DVD/Blu-Ray release of the movie. This is mostly true, as--yep--Knives Chau is the final playable character, and she will be coming, along with two new versus modes, for $2 to both XBLA and PSN sometime in November to coincide with the home release of the film.

Knives herself is pretty awesome. Sporting the striped scarf she's known for, Knives has some very powerful attacks and can easily clean up the packs of emo and hipster opponents. For her special moves, she can throw explosive sai, a move that are probably the most powerful I've seen in the game and lights dudes on fire. Even more, when she's played, every character can only summon Knives' dad or mom, depending on the level. Overall, she looks and plays awesome, and has--by far--the most flair and outlandishness of any of the characters.

Like I said, she's not the only addition. Two new modes will be showing up, and while they aren't ground breaking, they are fun. The first is a Dodge Ball mode, in which the only way to damage enemies and other players is with a giant beach ball. So it's not really a dodge ball mode, but it's at least different! Finally, the last mode is a variation on king of the hill, called Battle Royale. Players duke it out on a platform, and when knocked off, they have ten seconds to get back on. Again, it's not radically different, but it's a fun mode all the same.

Finally, a patch is going to release as well. This patch will balance some of the difficulty problems and take into account some of the major bugs in the game. All in all, it's not a bad addition to Scott Pilgrim for only two bucks, and while they say this is the last bit of downloadable content, fingers-crossed we might be able to get even more.

Video on that article (which I couldn't get to embed properly here) says they're adding drop-in/drop-out co-op!

Offline only, though:

At the same time, a patch will be issued to address difficulty balancing (making "average joe" a little more forgiving), squash several bugs and introduce drop-in/drop-out co-op. The latter will be for offline play only; when asked, Ubisoft said there are no plans to incorporate online multiplayer into the game, nor any further DLC for this stellar beat-'em-up.

Trust me, if the word "online" was mentioned, I would have made it well-known

Re: Scott Pilgrim: The Video Game

But it's ok, since no one plays online anyway.

They just give the DLC free for buyers of the movie

I've only beaten the game on the easiest setting. How do you unlock Nega Scott?

Cool. I was planning to do that anyway (about halfway through with Ramona).

I also appears that they are running a promo for certain mp3 albums at 7.99 or more and you get a 4 dollar credit. The other scott pilgrim soundtracks are 7.99 and count on this, so you could buy one of those, and then use the 4 dollar credit to get this getting both for 8 bucks

Re: Scott Pilgrim: The Video Game

Has it been confirmed if we're getting the new DLC on Tuesday after all? Knives and the new modes were supposed to be available with the DVD/Blu-ray of the movie.

Re: Scott Pilgrim: The Video Game

Honestly they should have put codes on the initial run of blu-rays. I would have been more tempted to pick it up at 24.99 on release. As it is I don't ever spend that much on a blu-ray no matter how good it is. I will wait for 15 to 20 bucks before I buy.

Re: Scott Pilgrim: The Video Game

I really wanted to like this game because I loved the film so much, but I guess I just don't care for beat 'em up games. When I tried the demo it seemed really generic to me

Someone convince me to spend the 400msp while it's on sale, so I can see the error of my ways.

If you don't like beat 'em ups don't get it. Why would anyone care to waste their time convincing you?

Re: Scott Pilgrim: The Video Game

I think they should have included a button configuration option. This is a great game for an arcade stick, and they don't always have the right button layout to match the game (although luckily mine seems ideal). Fighting games almost always have button config for this reason.

Why would anyone waste time posting at all? Because they feel like it.

Re: Scott Pilgrim: The Video Game

Yeah, very glad I tried the demo before biting at the 400 points price. Definitely not my type of game -- I found absolutely no enjoyment in playing it.

Re: Scott Pilgrim: The Video Game

This is one of those games that I think a demo hurts more than helps. Because you're a little under-powered in the beginning and it isn't until you earn money and buy upgrades that some of the frustration edge is taken off. Too bad because it's a hell of a fun game.

I also think if people knew how to run right off the bat, the walking slowly criticism wouldn't apply as much.

Maybe, but the double-tap is a classic control standard. People just need to not be babies.
