This puzzle popped up in Scribblenauts Unmasked ⊟
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!
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.

Along with the free rooster hats you get with preorders of Scribblenauts Unlimited at GameStop, you’ll get a big pencil stylus and a silicone-fitted case styled after Maxwell’s headgear when you reserve the 3DS version.
If you planned on buying a PS Vita soon, might as well get one of the WiFi systems now to pick up a 4GB memory card and a copy of the new Mortal Kombat for free.
Best Buy is also running a PS Vita promotion that throws in a free game (from a selection of four — ModNation Racers, MLB 12, Unit 13, or Uncharted: Golden Abyss), as well as a three-month PlayStation Plus subscription.
"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.
Super Scribblenauts commercial. I haven’t paid much attention to this sequel (partially because of the reduced attention it’s received from the gaming press, but also because I hardly made any headway with the original game), but this comes out today!
This might be the last DS game we see from 5th Cell for a while, what with the studio working on an unannounced XBLA title and not yet developing anything for Nintendo 3DS, so if you enjoy the company’s work, pick this up!
By the way, I hope Super Scribblenauts has an ending that’s as crazy as Drawn to Life 2’s credits.
Special edition Super Scribblenauts Nintendo DSi featuring artwork by 5th Cell’s gifted artist Edison Yan.
Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment plans to give out a series of random pins to anyone who visits its PAX booth next week and plays Super Scribblenauts. The first 10 gamers to receive and present matching pins will win a custom DSi like the one above!
Super Scribblenauts trailer shows off purple cars, rainbow telephones, and other adjective-noun combinations. Though this is receiving a tenth of the hype that the original Scribblenauts enjoyed, I’m thrilled that there’s a possibility players will be able to summon tiny cartridges.
Other stuff I can’t wait to conjure: surfing ninja, dancing robot, musical lizard, floating house, estranged father, supportive mother, lost innocence, unbroken family, sober living, happiness that isn’t in a bottle, and a bunch of other zany things you don’t see every day!
