First launching on Nintendo DS in 2009, the Scribblenauts game series task players with completing singular objectives by creating any object the player could possibly imagine, and combining them to create incredible solutions, all by writing them out in a magic notebook. Simple. Every game in the series has added deeper story & adventure elements, better themed level design and an increasing dictionary of objects to summon; garnering the series critical success and a growing obsession with internet memes.
Scribblenauts Showdown is a party game aimed for up to 4 players. Rather than taking on the hazards of the game’s levels, you can take on your friends to see who’ll win in a war of words. The announcement trailer below features series protagonist Maxwell, and his twin sister Lily, summoning various objects to outdo each other. Starting with the ‘scissors beats rock’, escalating all the way to pitting a dalmatian against a flamethrower!
Scribblenauts Showdown is currently available to pre-load, and will be fully released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on March 9th 2018.
