Scribblenauts Unmasked announced
Latest entry in the Scribblenauts series set in the DC Universe; coming to Wii U, 3DS, and PC this fall.
Warner Bros. has announced Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure, a crossover between the puzzle platformer and the DC Universe.
The game--which was rumoured to exist back in April--will be released in fall 2013 for the Wii U, 3DS, and PC and is being developed by series stewards 5th Cell.
Screenshots for the game show Scribblenauts protagonist Maxwell interacting with numerous DC characters in various locations, including Wayne Manor's laundry room (complete with bat-clad washing machines). Batman's batcave, Superman's Fortress of Solitude, and the Green Lantern homeworld Oa are also shown.
Batman villains Bane, Killer Croc, Harley Quinn, Two Face, Riddler, Joker, and Penguin are also shown alongside the Dark Knight, Robin, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Screenshots also show off lesser-known DC characters like Kyle Rayner, Professor Zoom, and Black Flash.
The trailer for the game, embedded below, also shows players customising their own heroes and villains, with Superman antagonist Doomsday retooled in a new costume to fight crime.
Scribblenauts games have been released every year since 2009, with last year's Scribblenauts Unlimited featuring Nintendo characters Mario, Link, and Zelda in the Wii U version of the game.
At the start of this month, Scribblenauts was accused of infringing on the trademarks of meme creators Charles Schmidt and Christopher Orlander Torres, creators of Keyboard Cat and Nyan Cat respectively. 5th Cell and Warner Bros. are accused of "shamelessly" using the memes to promote Scribblenauts titles and are seeking unspecified damages as compensation.
Warner Bros. is no stranger to using the DC universe in other games and has published two Lego Batman games in the past. The publisher also recently released the DC brawler Injustice: Gods Among Us, and is readying a release of Batman: Arkham Origins for later in 2013. A DC MOBA, Infinite Crisis, is also due for release in 2013.
