How to Unlock Knives Chau

A 17-year-old self-professed "Scottaholic," Chau's happy demeanor quickly changed after she discovered that Scott Pilgrim had cheated on her. Transformed with a new look and a darker attitude, Knives Chau's story quickly took an unexpected turn.

In Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, you can continue Knives Chau's journey. But, you will first need to take a few of these steps.

Ubisoft often offers incentives to get players to join their network. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game is no different. In order to play as Scott Pilgrim's third girlfriend, Knives Chau, you will have to link your game to your Ubisoft account.

Since you have to purchase Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game through Ubisoft's storefront on PC, console players are the only ones that will need to follow these steps. Knives Chau will already be unlocked for PC players.

Console players, don't fret. Scott Pilgrim's third girlfriend is only a few easy steps away.

  1. Make your way to the game's main menu
  2. Select the Ubisoft Connect option at the bottom of the screen
  3. From here, a new menu screen will prompt you to either create an account or to log into your preexisting account
  4. Either way, once you are logged into your account, you will be transported to the UPlay store. But, you will not need anything from this screen
  5. Rather, simply exit the screen and return to the game

After returning to the game, the iconic character will be yours to play. Of course, unlocking Knives Chau is just the first step to making the most out of this surprisingly tough 2D side-scroller. Check out all of our Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game guides right here.
