Following the major struggles and downsizing of original developer and series creator 5th Cell, The Scribblenauts series has been dormant for a few years now, but come March 9th it will be back again with Scribblenauts Showdown, a game that is making its way to PS4, Xbox, and Switch. It is being developed by Shiver Entertainment.

The Showdown mode has you taking on other players in ‘wordy’ as well as ‘speedy’ mini games. The mode takes place on a playing board that shows each players progress.

The versus mode sounds like a more instant mode, which allows you to play any of the game’s 25 mini games in single player or multiplayer.

Finally, the Sandbox mode will be the mode that will perhaps be most familiar to those who have played previous instalments in the series. The mode features eight brand new levels, with you solving puzzles by using items that you bring into the game world by simply writing them down. There’s over 30,000 objects in the game’s dictionary.

You’ll also be able to create your own character in the game, which of course fits in with the whole creative mindset of the series.
