XBLA Scott Pilgrim DLC adds online multiplayer August 19 ... 2012 [update: PSN coming too]

XBLA Scott Pilgrim DLC adds online multiplayer August 19  2012
An unassuming-looking note in the latest XBLA release schedule bears unimaginably weird news. Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is getting new DLC to add online multiplayer on August 19. Just as a reminder, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World was released almost exactly two years ago.

This is perhaps the most welcome news we didn't expect to see today.

Making it even better: the 400 MSP ($5) pack also includes a new character, Wallace Wells, who doesn't really even need weapons to hurt people. Presumably he'll be taking a break from his in-game mystery shop while he's fighting.

Update: Ubisoft PR rep Alex Monney clarified that the DLC is coming to both XBLA and PSN, promising "More details at a later date."
