Scribblenauts Unmasked - A DC Comics Adventure is coming to the Wii U, 3DS and PC later this year. Warner Bros has confirmed that a new game will combine beloved Scribblenauts gameplay in combination with thousands of DC Comics super heroes and villains. Powered by imagination and packed with new puzzle-solving missions and legendary locales like Gotham City, Scribblenauts Unmasked brings fans the best of the DC Comics and Scribblenauts franchises.
Scribblenauts Unmasked features a story where players embark as protagonist Maxwell on an imaginative and comical quest, taking them through Gotham City, Metropolis, Atlantis and other iconic locales from the DC Comics universe. In the game, Maxwell comes to the aid of Batman, Superman and the rest of the Justice League as they face the mightiest DC Comics Super Villains, such as the Joker, Lex Luthor and Sinestro. Fueled by the player’s imagination, Maxwell must use his magic notebook to put a stop to the villain’s evil schemes and save the day.
Expanding on the video game franchise’s innovation, Scribblenauts Unmasked features for the first time dynamically created puzzles called Heroic Feats that increase the game’s replayability by continuously generating original scenarios requiring different solutions with each visit.
“Scribblenauts Unmasked includes action-packed missions with fan favorite DC Comics Super Heroes adding to the players’ puzzle solving experience as the beloved Maxwell,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Challenges in the game encourage broader player choices all set in well-known locations of the DC Comics universe, interacting in new and inventive ways with a wide range of popular DC Comics characters.”
“Fans of both DC Comics and Scribblenauts can really let their imaginations run wild with the Super Hero Creator in Scribblenauts Unmasked,” said Jeremiah Slaczka, C.E.O. and Creative Director of 5th Cell. “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.”
A new Super Hero Creator tool available on Wii U and PC elevates the game’s creativity by giving players the ability to produce their own Super Hero or Super Villain using any items from the DC Comics universe and then setting properties for how it behaves, changing its appearance and powers. Players can then share their creations with the community and download others.
