Eat this, Injustice: Gods Among Us! Warner Bros. has just announced Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure coming to Wii U, 3DS and PC this fall. Scribblenauts protagonist Maxwell will be joined by the full lineup of popular DC characters in an out-of-this-world adventure the likes of which is actually pretty typical in a Scribblenauts game. Bring on the ridiculous Youtube videos, already!
Joining Maxwell on the roster will be DC Comics characters such as: Superman, Batman, Cyborg, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Joker, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Sinestro, Lex Luthor and all sorts of other insanity. They'll visit locations like Gotham City, Metropolis, Atlantis and the world over. Do all those fancy Scribblenaut things with all your favorite DC characters, in all your favorite DC settings.
This isn't just some licensed rush job though, Scribblenauts is evolving. For the first time Scribblenauts Unmasked will feature dynamically created puzzles -- they're calling them Heroic Feats -- as well as adding a Super Hero Creator tool for the PC and Wii U versions of the game.
Jeremiah Slaczka, C.E.O. and Creative Director of 5TH Cell, provided the following pitch:
"Fans of both DC Comics and Scribblenauts can really let their imaginations run wild with the Super Hero Creator in Scribblenauts Unmasked. Players will be challenged to craft new and never-before-seen characters such as Wonder Joker or Bane Lantern and use them to solve puzzles or share them with friends."
It's cool to see that Maxwell will still be featured prominently in a game that feature such high rung characters as Batman, Superman and who knows who else. Personally, I thought Scribblenauts Unlimited was the best game in the franchise yet specifically because it focused on actually introducing Maxwelll as a character -- backstory and all. While that story obviously won't continue in Unmasked, it's good to see Maxwell is still front and center.
Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure is planned for release this fall on the Wii U, 3DS and PC -- similar to last year's release of Scribblenauts Unlimited. Check out the trailer and over a dozen screenshots below.
