Scribblenauts Showdown announced
A new entry in the creative franchise will focus on multiplayer
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced Scribblenauts Showdown, a new video game based on the inventive franchise that introduces two new party game modes for one to four players.
In the game’s Showdown mode, up to four players face off and imagine their way to victory through card-based strategy. “Wordy” mini-games require unleashing the best object or character from the vast Scribblenauts dictionary of over thirty-five thousand words to outsmart an opponent. Action-oriented “Speedy” mini-games reward the player who completes a given challenge first.
In Versus mode, two players can go head-to-head in more than 25 mini-games that vary in every session. The mini-games can also be enjoyed by a single player. Versus mode allows continuous play of games by shuffling players into game after game.
Sandbox mode, the Scribblenauts series’ main playground, allows one or two players to solve objectives in eight new levels by summoning objects and earn hidden Starites and achievements.
Players can either choose, or design, their own original Scribblenaut to represent them throughout the game. The Scribblenaut can be further customized with unique clothing and accessories by earning Starites and completing achievements.
Scribblenauts Showdown will be available March 6 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
