Super Scribblenauts preorder bonus is an earful

Those who preorder 5th Cell's upcoming imaginative sequel at GameStop can earn gray, polka-dotted, or camouflaged headphones.

Scribblenauts' rooster hat preorder incentive from 2009 was popular with fans, but developer 5th Cell isn't ending the headgear promotions there. Those who preorder the game's sequel at GameStop will earn something else to don on their craniums.

If you play Super Scribblenauts in the woods, no one will see you.

GameStop today revealed that those who preorder Super Scribblenauts at the retailer will walk away with themed headphones when the game is released this October.

Up for grabs are three "adjectivified" Super Scribblenauts-themed headphones that will be handed out at random to those who preorder. The colors up for grabs are polka-dot, gray, and camouflage (pictured).

Super Scribblenauts ships for the DS and DSi October 12 and differentiates itself from its predecessor by adding a new control style and adjectives. For more on the new entry, check out GameSpot's most recent preview.

@itsTolkien_time: Yeah haha I know what you mean about getting side-tracked with other games. I was probably just being a bit pedantic in my original post, I tend to be like that. :P

@mjc0961: I was wary of the first game's issues, and that moved it down on my "want" list. But those are all problems I'm hoping the sequel improves on or fixes.

Because of course, anyone wearing Super Scribbenauts Army camoflage-style headphones is at the height of fashion.

But how will these fit over the chicken hats that they gave out for the first Scribblenauts?

@flammable_zeus: True, but If I'm planning on buying Super Scribblenauts this fall, I'm not sure that buying Scribblenauts now is sensible. Besides, the sequel fixes issues and should be a smoother experience. I should have gotten it a few months ago, but you get sidetracked and buy other games. :)

@itsTolkien_time Just so you know, you can still actually buy the game. They haven't stopped production of it or anything so you haven't missed out.

I'd love to see someone walk around in public with those headphones. :P

I'm certainly buying this (I may not have the chance to preorder though :P), since I missed out on the original Scribblenauts but was very interested.

I wonder if they'll be good quality or not.

it may look ugly but it's in the spirit of the game to add adjectives to objects, like green furry house or giant metalic chicken, that's what the camouflaged and polka-dotted headphones are supposed to represent, yes ugly but in the spirit of the game anyhow, they're headphones and they're free for a DS game that will probably cost like $30 so that's not a bad deal, I'll probably pick this game looks like a fun casual way to get more time out of my DS on the go

The first Scibblenauts was good, but there were a select few items that I could use to beat anything. I used a Raptor and a Jetpack to beat everything. That took away from the fun of the game. I hoped they fix that in the second one. They need to make you use different items.

I gotta say maybe I live in a bubble or are just too old, but I didn't think anyone played these kind of games except little kids. It's one game I will never get and don't want to hear about anymore. and @mariostar0001, your right. it is a pretty ugly game, but it's only the DS, so it actually looks good for that.
