Reason #43128695 that Candian comic series Scott Pilgrim is awesome: it’s chock full of sly nods to 8 and 16-bit videogame culture.

Thank goodness, then, that – based on a bunch of screenshots that leaked out of PAX East this weekend – we’re pretty sure Ubisoft read our list of “Top 43128695 Reasons Scott Pilgrim is Awesumm!111″

Attract Mode was on the scene to grab the shots during a concert given by Anamanaguchi, the chiptune group that will be providing Scott Pilgrim: The Videogame’s soundtrack.

In them, Scott beats down baddies with flashy 2D flair that looks like it’d be right at home in an oldschool beat-em-up.

Looks like Bryan Lee O’Malley’s magnum opus is in good hands.

    I think I must have missed a memo or something. I have heard of neither comic nor movie. Nor game.

    @Blerk: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Scott Pilgrim is absolutely fantastic. The movie and game are relatively recent developments, but the comic series has slowly been building its popularity for years. In a nutshell, it’s a wonderful mix of nerdy references, witty jokes, and heart-wrenching drama, with some crazy action sequences in between.

    You owe it to yourself to at least check out the first volume. After which you’ll inevitably read the second, third, fourth, and fifth, then claw at your own skin like some kind of addict until the sixth comes out this summer.

    On that note, I don’t have skin anymore. I ran out.
