Scott Pilgrim's heartbreaking 'Blood Code'

We already shared the code to unlock Boss Rush in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, but we've just learned of another and ran to try it out. Pictured above is the result of the "Blood Code" (X, Circle, X, Square, X, Circle, Circle on PS3; or A, B, A, X, A, B, B on Xbox 360 -- get it?)

Scott Pilgrim's interpretation of "blood" is pretty adorable: Whenever a hit connects, the spark effect is replaced by a pink, heart-shaped splash. The effect is active until you quit the game.

Though it brings us great joy to experience the nostalgia of writing about newly-discovered cheat codes, this may be the last time we get to do so for Scott Pilgrim, as most (if not all) of the game's codes have been discovered and GameFAQs'd.
