5th Cell has explained the decision to mix together the Scribblenauts and DC Comics franchises.
In a soon to be published interview, senior producer Caleb Arseneaux said that the pairing came about as the team was deciding how to advance the series “in a new way that would appeal to a new audience and our longtime Scribblenauts fans.”
Arseneaux told us:
“It really came down to how we could advance the game in a new way that would appeal to a new audience and our longtime Scribblenauts fans. The DC Comics Universe is so rich and full of unique and awesome characters we felt that the technology that brought the other Scribblenauts titles to life could be used to give DC Comics fans a great new way to interact with characters they love. This also provides an opportunity for our Scribblenauts fans to experience playing with real super hero characters that have powers, backstories and behaviors that they’ve never seen before.”
Look out for our full interview with Arseneaux – it’ll be going live soon.
