Nintendo has confirmed a release date for Scribblenauts Unlimited, the latest game in the original franchise where your writing comes to life and the only limit is your imagination. Scribblenauts Unlimited is Maxwell’s first adventure in an open world full of challenges and is set to be released for Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL.
Scribblenauts Unlimited sees you solve puzzles and challenges by imagining an object that could tackle the problem at hand, then bringing it to life by jotting down its name. This time around, you’ll also learn more about the back-story of everyone’s favourite rooster-capped hero, finding out about Maxwell’s parents, his twin sister Lily and even how he got his magical notepad.
Whereas previous games in the series featured a linear level progression mechanic, Scribblenauts Unlimited offers a completely open universe that is split into eight worlds and forty-one levels all with their own objectives to explore. You might have to visit the big city to help the police catch a thief or travel to a tropical island to help a shipwrecked couple, how you help them is only limited by your imagination, and as long as they end up happy, you get one of the coveted Starites. With the new Merit Board, each world comes with a comprehensive list of hints including the new Starite Vision helper highlighting all nearby Starites and Starite Shards.
Scribblenauts Unlimited is scheduled for release on the 8th February for Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details about Scribblenauts Unlimited.
