It’s pretty great to see more games paying tribute to the Year of Luigi. Speaking of Scribblenauts Unmasked, I reviewed the Wii U version of the game at Joystiq!

Ghostbusters and Pokemon recreated in Scribblenauts Unlimited, made possible by the new Object Editor.

I reviewed the Wii U version of Scribblenauts Unlimited over at Joystiq, which took a dark turn:

Scribblenauts Unlimited is meant to be a redemption quest, one that forces Maxwell to examine the way he’s mistreated others and abused his notebook’s powers, but I was having none of that.

The game is filled with characters dropping their wishes at Maxwell’s feet, and I wanted to be the venomous djinn, the nefarious wishmaster that only granted them with a terrible twist. I became the devil on Maxwell’s shoulder, goading him into silencing my counterpart with his notebook by writing out ‘absent conscience.’”

At one point in the game, a girl wished someone would give her something romantic, like in the movies. I offered her a “cursed ring,” which she took happily, unaware that she’d accepted a doomed future in the exchange.  Perhaps not the kind of film she had in mind.

Here’s that Scribblenauts Unlimited 3DS case up close.
The 3DS version of the game shipped out this week, and those who preordered it at GameStop received a rooster hat, a pencil stylus, and a silicon case for their handhelds — sorry XL owners, this one’s only for the standard 3DS.
Scribblenauts Unlimited hits Wii U this weekend without any extras unless you count the Nintendo characters.

Mario and friends crashing Scribblenauts Unlimited. If you can make it past the Call of Duty ad and video’s first minute, you’ll see Bowser and Mario duking it out, Peach floating around with her parasol, and Maxwell riding on Yoshi. There’s a clip with Link and Tingle, too!

There are also plenty of Warner Bros. properties that made it into the game, like characters from Batman, Mortal Kombat, and Scooby Doo. The Nintendo cameos are Wii U only, but it’s likely the WB characters are also in Scribblenauts Unlimited's PC and 3DS releases.

There it is, as predicted: Yoshi’s butt is in Scribblenauts Unlimited — along with the rest of the dinosaur, the Mushroom Kingdom troupe, and and the Zelda gang. The game will have “dozens of characters and items” (e.g. mushrooms, karts) from Nintendo’s two big franchises.
The text says this is Wii U-exclusive, which is odd. I didn’t expect it on the PC version, but what about 3DS?

Who’s that Pokemon?! Er, I mean, Nintendo character!

GameStop is teasing some unrevealed characters that will be included in Scribblenauts Unlimited. Given Nintendo’s willingness to let third-party developers drop its mascots into their games lately (e.g. Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Dynasty Warriors VS), it’s likely these are some familiar figures from the Mario and Zelda series.

I’ve included an image above with our best guesses for the silhouetted people. Presumably, Yoshi’s butt will appear only in the Wii U and 3DS versions, and not the PC release.

Scribblenauts Unlimited trailer, all about the new object editor and the entertaining, thoughtful monsters you can create with it. This feature is one of the big new things about the Wii U and PC versions of the sequel, but it’s not in the 3DS edition! If Clownthulhu is what you’re after, please plan accordingly.

I’m happy to share the news that if you pre-order the game on any platform from GameStop, you’ll get a new Rooster hat, in red, pink, or blue. Perfect for Halloween! That’s my go-to costume for handing candy out to trick-or-treaters, because I’m lazy.

Developer interview for Scribblenauts Unlimited explaining the game’s key additions: multiplayer (for the first time!), a robust object editor, and an actual story!

5th Cell says the object editor gives players “the same tools as the developer to make, name, and then share their creations online. Players can create their own objects or customize any object in-game by setting properties for how it behaves, and can change its appearance by resizing, disassembling and altering its texture and color.”

The game releases for Wii U, 3DS, and PC this holiday season. It looks like multiplayer is local-only for Wii U. You can watch the gameplay trailer debuted earlier today here.

Japanese Scribblenauts commercial. Forgive me — it’s about a week old, but I hadn’t seen this yet, and I think it’s interesting. Ever since Konami announced that it would publish 5th Cell’s puzzle game in Japan, I’ve been curious about how it would handle text input, and now thanks to this trailer I know.

Luckily, kanji knowledge isn’t required to play Hirameki Puzzle Maxwell no Fushigi na Note (that’s the Japanese title): it deals only in the hiragana and katakana syllabaries and our alphabet, all accessible either through handwriting input or virtual keyboards.

I… think this trailer also offers the debut of Maxwell’s voice! Speaking Japanese!

Finally, here’s the Japanese boxart, which is adorable:

So here’s a sweet Maxwell/Doppelganger scene, by DeviantArt user AuraMasterLucario. Now that’s something you’ve seen.
By the way, if you haven’t “summoned” the Doppelganger in Super Scribblenauts, it’s totally worth trying. He rapidly generates random items, giving you more ideas about which nouns and adjectives can be found in the in-game dictionary. What he doesn’t do is look away ambivalently during tender moments.

"Scirbblenauts Tribute" by Andy Poon (click for full size).
[Update: Disregard everything I said below except for  the last paragraph! I mixed up Andrew Poon from Rainmaker Studios with  Andy Poon from Nerdcorps Entertainment.  The latter actually created this magnificent piece, and he’s an art  director / concept artist at his respective studio. Please accept my  apologies for the confusion!]
Andrew works as an animator at Vancouver’s Rainmaker Entertainment, formerly Mainframe Entertainment, which has created “cinematics” for games like Ghostbusters, Prototype, and Assassin’s Creed 2.
Back in the day, though, Rainmaker/Mainframe also produced CGI-animated shows like ReBoot and Beast Wars — Andrew wasn’t at the company around that time, but I wanted to bring it up because I haven’t thought of ReBoot and Beast Wars in forever. Those shows were soooo tight (despite me never getting home from school in time to catch the first ten minutes of Beast Wars).




Anyway, Andrew created this great art as a tribute to his friend, Edison Yan, art director of Scribblenauts.
