Warner Bros. announces Scribblenauts Unmasked
Warner Bros. has announced Scribblenauts Unlimited, confirming a rumored report last month. A release is planned on the Wii U, 3DS, and PC this fall.
Players will once again take on the role of main character Maxwell, who will travel to famous DC Comics locales such as Gotham City, Metropolis, Atlantis, and more. You’ll come across the likes of Batman, Superman, and other Justice League members, plus Super Villains including The Joker, Lex Luthor, and Sinestro. Maxwell’s magic notebook will be needed “to put a stop to the villains’ evil schemes and save the day”.
New to Scribblenauts Unmasked are the “dynamically created puzzles” known as Heroic Feats. These “increase the game’s replayability by continuously generating original scenarios requiring different solutions with each visit.”
Unmasked will also include a new Super Hero Creator tool for the Wii U and PC versions that allow users to create their own Super Hero or Super Villain using any DC Comics universe item and modifying behaviors, appearances, and powers. Creations can be shared with the community and download other players’ characters.
