One of the most inventive games to come out in the past decade would have to be the Scribblenauts series. Created in 2009 for the DS by Jeremiah Slaczka and 5th Cell, the game was a breakout hit for WB Games and spawned 3 sequels, one of which included the ability to summon anyone from the DC universe.
Ever since 2013, the series has been on a bit of a hiatus, but it looks like that’s finally over. This morning WB Games announced Scribblenauts Showdown for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PS4 with a release date of March 6th. While the game isn’t a traditional adventure, it still retains what makes Scribblenauts such a unique series. throughout the 25+ mini-games in the package, players will still have access to the over 35,000-word library that fans have come to know and love. Also featured in the game is a character creator and a Sandbox mode more reminiscent of the original games.
Even if it’s not a main series title, it’s still great to see that Scribblenauts hasn’t been forgotten and just tossed into a bin of abandoned IP’S. What do you think of Scribblenauts Showdown? Are you interested in trying it out, or are you holding out for a more traditional game in the series? Check out the announcement trailer below.
