Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Announces Scribblenauts™ Showdown

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced Scribblenauts™ Showdown, a new video game based on the inventive franchise that expands upon the puzzle-action series’ creativity by introducing two new party game modes for one to four players. Scribblenauts Showdown will be available March 6 for Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One®. Scribblenauts Showdown delivers imaginative fun and the humor that Scribblenauts fans love with new social elements to challenge friends and family. Players of all skill levels will enjoy testing their creativity in the fast-paced, head-to-head party style gameplay. 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 35,000 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 customized with unique clothing and quirky accessories by earning Starites and completing achievements.
