It’s time to get creative as Scribblenauts Unlimited releases today for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Of course you can’t play the Wii U version until the actual console releases next week (Nov. 18), but that doesn’t mean you can’t spend the next five days staring at the pretty box the game comes in.
The Scribblenaut series has always been about the player using their imagination to solve puzzles, creating just about any object they can think up simply by writing its name into the game. If a monster stands in your way, a “sword” might be helpful. Or, even better, you could call on the help of “Cthulhu.” It’s always up to you.
Developed by 5th Cell, Scribblenauts Unlimited is available starting today for the 3DS and Wii U and will be headed to PC next Tuesday, Nov. 20. Players will get to explore a 2D side scrolling open world this time around, solving puzzles and besting monsters as they go. For those who follow the game’s story, you’ll finally learn how Maxwell got his hands on the magical notepad that lets him bring his drawings to life, as well as learn a bit of backstory about his parents and twin sister.
“Scribblenauts Unlimited expands the franchise to its first home console, making it easier and more fun for groups of people to get involved,” said Senior VP at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Samantha Ryan. “The Wii U offers players original ways to interact with the action and the ability to share the experience with friends and family cooperatively.”
The Wii U and PC versions of the game also allow players to create their own objects and share them online. Also on the Wii U version is the first ever implementation of co-op in the Scribblenauts universe, allowing up to three partners to control objects created within the game. Teamwork!
