If you’ve wanted every single member of the Justice League to help you solve a puzzle, or have Superman give you a lift to the top of a building, you’ll be excited about the announcement of Scribblenauts Unmasked.
Scribblenauts, developed by 5th Cell and published by Warner Bros. Interactive, is a franchise that gives the player power to create any object of their imagination by typing it into the game. The open-puzzle game allows players to come at problems with many different solutions.
Now the Scribblenauts world is crashlanding into the DC Comics universe. Players will tour through multiple popular locations in DC lore, including Superman’s Metropolis, Batman’s Gotham City and Aquaman’s underwater home of Atlantis.
To help the game’s hero, Maxwell, solve the puzzles in front of him, he’ll be able to type out any DC character’s name in his magic notebook to summon them. According to an interview in Polygon, every character is included, like all 33 versions of Batman that exist in different chapters of DC’s history. Villains aren’t left out either, and all are rendered in Scribblenaut‘s cute, distinctive art style.
If that sounds a little overwhelming, players will be able to check the character’s information and powers to see how they can best utilize them.
“Challenges in the game encourage broader player choices all set in well-known locations of the DC Comics universe, interacting in new and inventive ways with a wide range of popular DC Comics characters,” said Samantha Ryan, Warner Bros. Interactive’s SVP of production and development.
Scribblenauts Unmasked will also feature a hero editor, where players can mix and match pieces of popular characters to create their own Franken-hero. Want to make a Wonder Joker? No sweat.
Scribblenauts Unmasked will be out this fall for Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii U and PC.
