WB Games has announced that Scribblenauts Showdown will be released for the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on March 6. Original developer 5th Cell shut down a few years ago, but fans can get a peek at the first teaser trailer above.
The next game in the Scribblenauts saga will change things up with a new focus on minigames. Up to four players will be able to create objects using the game’s dictionary of more than 35,000 words, and they’ll compete on a board game style map to win:
In the game’s Showdown Mode, up to four players face off and imagine their way to victory through card-based strategy and creative skill. “Wordy” minigames require unleashing the best object or character from the vast Scribblenauts dictionary of over 35,000 words to outsmart an opponent. Action-oriented “Speedy” minigames reward the player who completes a given challenge first. A board game style map displays players’ progress. With multiple ways to make up ground, every player has a chance to win, which keeps the excitement going until the end!
In Versus Mode, two players can go head-to-head in more than 25 minigames that vary in every session.
Scribblenauts Showdown will also include a brand new Sandbox Mode with eight levels for one or two players.
