Among the all delay stories for games up until now, this has to be one of the most weird: Scribblenauts Unlimited, the latest game in the Scribblenauts series developed by 5th Cell and published by Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment for Wii U, 3DS and Pc, already available in the US, will be available in Europe starting next year. Nothing strange in all this, except that the game is still going to be released on schedule in Australia and New Zeland and both regions are PAL territory, just like Europe!
All the talking started with a post on NeoGaf forums by a 5th Cell employee stating the game would be delayed in Europe: when Warner Bros Interactive was contacted about the issue, they stated that the employee was indeed only talking about Uk and Europe, while the release of the game in Australia and New Zealend was going to be right on schedule on November 28, two days before the official Wii U launch day in PAL territories. The Pc game, to be released on Steam, will also be available on the same day, despite the game’s details no longer available on the Australian Steam store.
It truly is a mystery: usually, Australian games version come way later than the European version, but this time it’s the other way around and without a solid reason. We’ll keep you updated if anything new comes up. If it’s indeed confirmed players who don’t really want to wait can import the game since it’s from a PAL region and should be compatible with the European Wii U console.
