Nintendo Characters in Scribblenauts Wii U on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Update: Warner Bros. has revealed the eight Nintendo characters that will be appearing in Scribblenauts Unlimited for Wii U. They were teased earlier in a silhouette image, but now the faces of these iconic heroes are here for all to see. Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Link, Princess Zelda, Epona and a Goron are the lucky ones that will be able to be summoned by Maxwell, along with a host of items from both the Mario and Legend of Zelda series, which will behave in the way they do in their respective games, paving the way for some fun and hilarious interactions.

Developer 5TH Cell also spoke out about why the Nintendo characters will be absent from the Nintendo 3DS version of the game.

"The 3DS version was already finished and moving into manufacturing (cartridges take longer to produce) by the time the deal was signed with WB & Nintendo…only the Wii U and PC [versions] remained and obviously Nintendo would only want their IP on their platform."

Original Story: 5TH Cell could be ready to give Nintendo fans a bit of a special treat in the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Scribblenauts Unlimited, the third Nintendo-based edition of the multi-million selling series published by Warner Bros. Interactive.

A promotional image sent out shows lead character Maxwell with a suspiciously familiar question mark above his head, along with greyed-out characters, many of which could well hide Nintendo characters such as Princess Peach, Epona, and maybe the Mario Brothers.

Yoshi, Peach, Luigi, Mario. Epona, Goron, Link, Zelda. I would imagine, anyway.

Left side all Mario characters, right side all Zelda ones? Could well be!

Wow, Nintendo characters are getting in on everything nowadays! Not that that's a bad thing, of course! I still want to know when this is coming out in the UK, as it's a launch title in the US.

I wouldn't pay more than €10 for any SCribblenauts game.

Any chance of these being in the 3DS version? I don't particularly want to buy the WiiU version of a game better suited for handhelds is all.

Either way these are really cool! Smilie

The WIi U version appears to be a lot superior than the 3DS version, such as the object creator and the ability to play local multiplayer. I know for a fact I'll be getting the Wii U version, just because I loved the first 2 games and this seems to be even better, especially with the ability to make your own objects.
