We See That Sonic Reference On The Scott Pilgrim Cover, Limited Run

The long-awaited rerelease of Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game Complete Edition is upon us, and Limited Run Games is celebrating with a physical edition. It also happened to sneak in a reference to a classic Sonic the Hedgehog game.

Ubisoft announced that the game will release digitally next week, on January 14. Limited Run Games followed that announcement with one about the physical edition, with pre-orders starting January 15. The physical version has a reversible cover. One side depicts Scott and Ramona’s seven evil exes. The other shows Scott by himself, striking a familiar pose.

Sonic fans will know what’s up.

Aside from copying Sonic’s pose from the Sonic Adventure box art, this version of the Scott Pilgrim cover also uses a very Sonic-style font. It’s clearly a deliberate reference, and one that Sonic fans appreciate very much.

Of course, it’s not the first time Scott Pilgrim referenced Sonic the Hedgehog art. The original comic uses the Genesis title screen as the opening to one of the chapters.

Those looking to get their hands on one of the Limited Run physical editions can pre-order starting on January 15 at 10am ET. There will be PS4 and Switch versions available, with both having the Sonic-style reversible cover.
