Scribblenauts Showdown Gets Officially Announced, Launches March 6, 2018

"Wordy" mini-games demand you come up with the best object or character from Scribblenauts' expansive dictionary of more than 30,000 words to outsmart your rival. There is also the standard Scribblenauts Sandbox mode that gives you free reign to experiment and play around within the game's engine. Whereas the action-oriented "Speedy" mini-games will reward whoever is first to complete the given challenge, and, for both mini-games, a board game-style map will display each player's progress.

In the new eponymous Showdown mode, teams face off to "imagine" their way to victory by utilising their creative skills via card-based strategy. Interactive Entertainment announced today (January 16) that a new game is coming.

Scribblenauts was one of the titles that sold me on the Nintendo DS, and its gradual iterations were increasingly impressive in how many different possibilities for user-input they actually respected.


"Scribblenauts Showdown delivers imaginative fun and the humour that Scribblenauts fans love with new social elements to challenge friends and family", enthuses Steven Chiang, executive vice president of production at Warner Bros. It'll be available for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Anyway, Scribblenauts Showdown appears to be a multiplayer spin on the formula, going by the ESRB's description. Solve objectives within the mode's eight levels and try to out-think your opponent to win. Some games/tasks prompt players to use "cartoony" weapons (e.g., bazookas, bombs, swords) to deplete the health meters of other characters.

An ESRB rating emerged detailing Scribblenauts Showdown, labelling it as a "party/puzzle platformer" for multiple players.
