Scribblenauts Showdown Announced for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that a new installment in its Scribblenauts series is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

According to Warner Bros., Scribblenauts Showdown is slated for release on March 9.

Scribblenauts Showdown, which is the fifth entry in the puzzle series, features two new party modes for up to four players.

“Wordy” minigames allow players to access over 30,000 words in Scribblenauts’ dictionary to use against their opponents, while “Speedy” minigames are based on who can solve challenges the fastest.

Scribblenauts Showdown supports online PvP with over 25 minigames. Additionally, the minigames have been confirmed for Scribblenauts Showdown’s single-player mode.

One of Scribblenauts’ fan-favorite modes, Sandbox, makes its return in Showdown, allowing up to two players to complete different objectives in eight new levels.

“Adding to the family fun, players can either choose, or design, their own original Scribblenaut to represent them throughout the game, all drawn in the classic Scribblenauts art style,” Warner Bros. said.

“Scribblenauts Showdown delivers imaginative fun and the humor that Scribblenauts fans love with new social elements to challenge friends and family,” said Steven Chiang, executive vice president and production at Warner Bros.

“Players of all skill levels will enjoy testing their creativity in the fast-paced, head-to-head party-style gameplay.”
