As if this week's teaser trailer premiere of Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. The World -- the film adaptation of Bryan Lee O'Malley's cult hit comic series (which I have already watched about a thousand times) -- wasn't enough, the first images and details of Ubisoft's game adaptation have come via games culture shop AttractMode.
Via AttractMode we learn that the game's art direction and sprite work is being handled by none other than pixel master Paul Robertson -- the same as behind ultra-cute/violent viral videos Pirate Baby's Cabana Battle Street Fight and Kings of Power 4Billion% -- with music being led by local favorite chip/rock artists Anamanaguchi.
While the images show off what appears to be at heart a side-scrolling arcade beat'em'up -- of the same type that would originally influence the comics themselves -- the visual chaos present in these first pics comes from their use backing Anamanaguchi's Penny Arcade Expo performance where they debuted their theme song for the game, graphically glitched and remixed by frequent chipscene visual collaborators Paris and Outpt.
Below, then, are a selection of those first images, reprinted with permission, with several handfuls more available via Attract Mode, and video of Anamanaguchi's theme song performed live.

That’s why I’m a huge fan of Scrivener, the software suite used by best-selling authors and technical writers alike.Scrivener is much more than another digital typewriter. With a […]
