2000 DC Comics Characters To Appear In New Scribblenauts Game

I’ve always enjoyed the Scribblenauts games because they’re perfect for both idling and also a bit of actual puzzle solving, and you can shift gears in-game just as your mood takes you. Good for a wandering mind.

And I’ve actually ‘wasted’ an awful lot of time trying out different pop culture ideas, to see if I could conjure them up. I even managed to find one nifty little comic book nod without even trying – and so, it seems, did Rich.

But the next instalment, Scribblenauts Unmasked, has been created with official license to use DC comics characters. That means you no longer have to summon up ninjas, dragons, chefs, wax traffic wardens or whatever else – you can now call on Batman, or Superman, or Wonderwoman…

…or villains too. And with 2000 characters in-game, things can get really obscure. Like Prez obscure, and maybe more.

As soon as I get my hands on this I’m going to try and summon up Stephanie Brown and I’ll tell you immediately what happens.

If you don’t know the Scribblenauts series, this trailer for an earlier episode reveals how the gameplay mechanic works. Basically, you ask for something, and you get it. It’s the exact opposite to real life. Or it would be, if it was free.

Scribblenauts Unmasked will be released on Wii U and 3DS.
