Surely by now you’ve heard of (and hopefully played) Scribblenauts. The unique puzzle game encouraged imaginative thinking and pushed gamers to solve its entertaining puzzles by thinking up the solution any way they wanted. Gamers were placed in a scenario, and in order to solve that scenario’s puzzle, they had to write different nouns that would appear onscreen and aid them in solving the brain teaser. The game had its flaws, specifically in the controls department, but Scribblenauts was a fun game worth playing.
Now, just about two months after the release of Scribblenauts, news regarding a sequel has been leaked by Warner Bros. Interactive. Apparently, Warner Bros. sent out an email listing their European catalog for 2010. The catalog lists games such as Lego Harry Potter, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and FEAR 3, but probably the most surprising is Scribblenauts 2, which is set for release in September 2010, one year after its predecessor’s launch. Additionally, the game is listed to return to the DS, but releases for the Wii and PC were also indicated on the email.
A Scribblenauts sequel would certainly be nice to see. If the controls were tweaked up a bit and user-created levels could be downloaded without the restrictions of Nintendo’s oh so popular Friend Code system, then gamers would definitely have the ultimate Scribblenauts experience in their hands.
So, will Scribblenauts 2 really come to fruition on September of next year? What can we expect of the Wii and PC versions of the game? Or is Scribblenauts 2 just wishful planning that will never see the light of day?
