Scribblenauts Showdown Announced, but It’s Not the Scribblenauts That You’re Used To

Coming sooner than you think.

Have you guys been missing Scribblenauts like we have? Well, we have some great news for Switch owners as well as for PS4 and Xbox One players; the next entry in the unique puzzle-solving franchise has been announced and it is titled as Scribblenauts Showdown. The game seems to stray from the past entries by introducing itself as a mini-game collection that is able to be played with up to four people. Don’t worry, even though the game is focused on multiplayer showdowns, there will still be a creative sandbox mode that was present in past games that lets you earn Starites by using your imagination and completing objectives.

Here’s a full rundown of the title, straight from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment:

In the game’s Showdown mode, up to four players face off and imagine their way to victory through card-based strategy and creative skill. “Wordy” mini-games require unleashing the best object or character from the vast Scribblenauts dictionary of over thirty thousand words to outsmart an opponent. Action-oriented “Speedy” mini-games reward the player who completes a given challenge first. A board game style map displays players’ progress. With multiple ways to make up ground, every player has a chance to win, which keeps the excitement going until the end!

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 for non-stop fun.

Sandbox mode, the Scribblenauts series’ cherished creative playground, allows one or two players to solve objectives in eight new levels by summoning any object they can imagine and earn hidden Starites and achievements. Players can also let their imaginations run wild by unleashing whatever objects they can think of and watching them interact in unexpected ways.

Adding to the family fun, players can either choose, or design, their own original Scribblenaut to represent them throughout the game, all drawn in the classic Scribblenauts art style. The Scribblenaut can be further customised with unique clothing and quirky accessories by earning Starites and completing achievements.

You can check out the official announcement trailer below:

Scribblenauts Showdown will be launching on March 6 for Switch, PS4, and Xbox One – note that this is the first time that the series has been seen on other non-Nintendo consoles.
