Maxwell Unites with the World’s Greatest Super Heroes As Players Use their Imagination and DC Comics Smarts to Solve Puzzles and Battle the Mightiest Villains!
SYDNEY, Australia – September 25 2013 – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment announce the Australian launch of Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure, a new game that melds the boundless creativity of the award–winning video game franchise with thousands of DC Comics™ characters and objects across the DC Comics universe – all drawn in the classic Scribblenauts art style. Created and developed by 5TH Cell, the game is now available for the Wii U™ system, Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system and PC through digital on Steam.
Scribblenauts Unmasked features a story where protagonist Maxwell embarks on an imaginative and comical quest through GOTHAM CITY™, METROPOLIS™, ATLANTIS™ and other iconic locales from the DC Comics Universe. In the game, Maxwell comes to the aid of BATMAN™, SUPERMAN™ and the rest of THE JUSTICE LEAGUE™ as they face the mightiest DC Comics Super Villains, such as THE JOKER™, LEX LUTHOR™ and SINESTRO™. Fuelled by the player’s imagination where anything he/she writes comes to life, Maxwell must use his magic notebook to summon heroes or tools that will put a stop to the villains’ evil schemes and save the DC Comics universe!
Players in need of some super hero help or who just want to learn more about the vast DC Comics universe itself, can reference a brand new feature exclusive to Scribblenauts Unmasked. The Batcomputer is an in-game encyclopedia that visually displays the names and descriptions of every DC Comics character and that can be used in the game. It also links these characters and objects together in the form of a detailed wiki that can be used to learn about and utilise some of the most interesting and obscure characters in the DC Comics universe!
“The Batcomputer in Scribblenauts Unmasked is one of the most comprehensive resource for DC Comics knowledge ever created in a retail product,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Players looking for the perfect object to summon will have fun finding familiar characters or discovering lesser known ones to enhance their gameplay experience.”
A new Hero Creator tool available on Wii U and PC elevates the game’s creativity by giving players the ability to produce their own Super Heroes or Super-Villains out of anything they can think of in the game. This could mean making a something like a potato, lobster or guitar into your very own customisable Super Hero; or, taking your favourite Super Hero and crossing his/her look and powers with others in the DC Comics universe to create the ultimate combination. Players can then share their creations online with friends and family.
“Scribblenauts Unmasked’s Hero Creator lets players bring out their inner super hero or villain by crafting completely original objects using any item from the DC Comics universe,” said Jeremiah Slaczka, C.E.O. and Creative Director of 5TH Cell. “They can assign unique properties to their creations and use them to solve puzzles, or share them online with friends – which they can use in game or further modify as they like.”
Expanding on the video game franchise’s innovation, Scribblenauts Unmasked features for the first time dynamically created puzzles called Heroic Feats that increase the game’s replayability by continuously generating original scenarios requiring different solutions with each visit. Every time a player goes to a world in Scribblenauts Unmasked they will have a unique experience that tests their creativity and wit in many different ways. They can then use the rewards they earn by solving the Heroic Feats to unlock new areas and avatars in the game and powers in the Hero Creator.
