Super Scribblenauts News
UPDATE: Layoffs rather than closure, says CEO
UPDATE: 5th Cell CEO Jeremiah Slaczka has spoken to Polygon about the news, and has confirmed that the studio remains open but layoffs have taken place: WB cancelled today so we had to lay off the staff. It happened so quick we're not sure what the plans are going forward yet. Here's the full...
[Insert rageface of choice here.]
When your fame comes from getting plastered in every corner of the Internet possible, a nod in a videogame may seem a positive thing. The originators of Nyan Cat and Keyboard Cat (known in everyday life as Fatso) do not appear to agree, having hit developer 5th Cell and publisher Warner Bros. with lawsuits arguing...
Both DS instalments on one handy cartridge
North American gamers have been pleasantly enjoying Scribblenauts Unlimited on Wii U and 3DS for a while now, while Europe is still waiting to get its deprived mitts on it. It looks as though Europeans will have more reasons to be jealous now, as Warner Bros. has released Scribblenauts Collection on the DS...
New bundle includes the two DS instalments
Warner Bros. is bundling together the first two Scribblenauts games - Scribblenauts and Super Scribblenauts - for the Nintendo DS in Scribblenauts Collection. Amazon's US site has a release date of February 26th. It's not currentl
Whereas DS games dominate the Handheld category
We recently brought you word that Super Mario Galaxy 2 was nominated for the GAME Award of 2010 at this year's British Academy Video Game Awards. As the only category voted by the public, our readers showed a lot of support for the rotund plumber which should hopefully help him snag the recognition. If you haven't already, make sure you head over to..
Sample some of the top Wii and DS games of the year
With Christmas only a few weeks away, shopping malls are already getting crammed with people wearing a ridiculous amount of layers and all rushing about, reluctantly spending an amount of money that's even more ridiculous. Well, if you want to take a break from all that gift-buying, or even if you...
Anybody know any good egg puns?
Wordplay and eggs: they go together like boiled egg and soldiers. What better way to celebrate the launch of wordsmithery sequel Super Scribblenauts than to tie-in with leading ovum producer Stonegate Eggs, then? Specially branded boxes containing so-called "Intelligent Eating Eggs" will bear the likeness of...
Get them signed too while you're at it
It's not long now before 5th Cell releases Super Scibblenauts, the sequel to 2009's Scibblenauts, and in conjunction with the game's launch GameStop will be holding a special event where gamers can take part in a costume contest and even buy copies of the game ahead of its scheduled retail release. The GameStop...
Complaining does pay off sometimes
For a game based on imagination, you wouldn't have expected Scribblenauts to have frustrated gamers in such a basic regard, but its touchscreen controls rubbed plenty of gamers up the wrong way, complaining they lacked the precision required to manoeuvre Maxwell around his sketchy world. Developer 5th Cell is...
Only as PAX prizes, sadly
The game that's more a test of wordsmanship than gaming skills, Super Scribblenauts is going all-out to provide the most stylish gamers out there with enough customised stuff to sink a pink, spotted battleship. First came the rooster hat, then the fluffy headphones, but the real cream of the Super Scribblenauts crop is the...
Get daring, bright, bold and so on
So you're wearing your Scribblenauts rooster hat, thinking about wearing your Super Scribblenauts pre-order headphones, and you want to know exactly how you can express your excitement for Warner Bros.'s upcoming wordy epic. How about with some wallpaper? Good answer. Being Super Scribblenauts however, this isn't just any wallpaper – it features a zombie in a..
If you preorder at Gamestop, of course
The original Scribblenauts came with an infamous rooster hat for those who preordered, so can Warner Bros. top that with an even better incentive second time around? How about with a pair of plush headphones that actually work? Bad luck if you said no, as that's exactly what's happening. Coming in three...
Get the lowdown on Okamiden, Super Scribblenauts and more!
Ace Nintendo Life reporters James and Darren were recently invited to attend a special preview event in London to get hands-on with the 3DS as well as Nintendo's upcoming Wii and DS line-up. We've already posted our impressions of the 3DS and its games, so let's cast our eye to the wider...
Warner Bros is bringing sketchy back
We already know that Warner Bros' sequel to last year's Scribblenauts lets you use adjectives to customise your world, so here's a few to customise this E3 trailer: shiny, new, luscious. With promises of fixed controls, new challenges and even more words to be added, there's good reason to be hopeful that this...
First images of the duper sequel show further shenanigans
So, 5TH Cell's fun but flawed DS game Scribblenauts is getting a sequel. Makes sense after selling 1.1 million copies across the globe. Slapping a "2" on the end of the name would be all well and good, but hardly the most creative way to show off how much improved the new game is. No, for the true game naming connoisseur there is..
