Yoshi, Zelda, Luigi, Mario, Link, Zelda, Epona and a Goron are joining the cast of characters in Scribblenauts Unlimited for Wii U, according to an announcement on GameSpot’s Facebook page.

Nintendo seems less concerned with leasing out its characters for other games. Between themed characters in the upcoming Wii U version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and villains like Bowser showing up in Disney’s Wreck-It Wraph film, the licensing chains have loosened a bit at Nintendo.

Scribblenauts Unlimited is part of the Wii U launch lineup on November 18, but the game itself is not exclusive to Wii U. The PC version, for example, will have integrated support for Steam Workshop.

Nifty.

Wario should be in there.

Wario.

This actually kinda cool...

#5 Posted by RE_Player1 (7574 posts) -

That's great and all but I'm just glad the Mega64 dudes are still in the game and will be in the superior PC version.

#6 Posted by Bigheart711 (1253 posts) -

Hm. That actually sounds very good.

But no adjectives :(

*on the nintendo characters.

#8 Posted by hupla (12 posts) -

Super neat! This and the Tekken outfits are both cool ideas.

#9 Posted by GERALTITUDE (3511 posts) -

Man, we love Nintendo franchises so much.

#10 Posted by BRYN (90 posts) -

Another fact, since Scribblenauts was published by Konami in Japan, you can conjure up Solid Snake and Old Snake on the Japanese version!

I kind of lost interest in the WiiU version once I learned that it would also come to 3DS. I ended up buying both of the games that came out for the DS, so it really feels like a portable series to me.

Anyhow, I'm still looking forward to killing more babies with bugspray when this does come out.

#17 Posted by BraveToaster (12588 posts) -

Hell yeah for the PC version. This is going to be amazing.

#18 Posted by TimFReilly (98 posts) -

Really like the Scribblenauts art style applied to Nintendo characters.

Yes adjectives, and a bunch of other improvements that sound great.

"As well as the adjective system that was introduced in Super Scribblenauts, players can now attach multiple objects to each other; for example, creating a dog with wheels. Furthermore, there are numerous properties that can be assigned to objects, such as movement and offence capabilities. Players can also customize their objects with scaling and coloring tools, similar to another 5th Cell franchise, Drawn to Life. Customised objects can be named and saved - typing in the name of a saved custom object allows it to be spawned at any time."

Yay Goron! I remember in Ocarina of time when you defeat the dungeon the Goron sage calls you his brother; I always thought that was really cool.

#21 Posted by zeekthegeek (392 posts) -

Gonna play the hell out of this on PC. The modding community will make this retardedly cool.

#22 Posted by HaltIamReptar (2029 posts) -

Wreck-It Wraph is actually the little known Japanese film the Disney one is based off of. Lots of people make that mistake, don't sweat it.

#23 Posted by iAmJohn (6134 posts) -

Good thing it'll take five seconds for someone to throw them into the PC version thanks to Steam Workshop!

Whatchu talking about?

#25 Posted by zeo12 (28 posts) -

i dont think the intended audience for this game its going to buy the pc version,(a 20 something buying this game on steam seems pretty weird)

#26 Posted by crusader8463 (14427 posts) -

The best part of having a modding community for a game is that we can just add in all these platform exclusives ourselves.

#27 Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials (2431 posts) -

I'll just assume these will be modded into the PC version.

#28 Posted by KingBroly (1645 posts) -

Luigi looks like he's going to choke someone.

#29 Posted by WhiteBrightKnight (166 posts) -

As I scrolled to the top of the page, I was a bit creeped out when I saw "Dig Deeper into Princess Peach".

Anyway, a neat addition but I'm much more interested in seeing the steam workshop stuff than this. The dota 2 items I've seen recently have been amazing.

Think he meant you can't use adjectives with the Nintendo characters.

If you think that's creepy, you should see some of the pictures attached to that wiki page.

#32 Posted by Moonshadow101 (573 posts) -

"Exclusive" and "Unlimited" are odd words to put so close together.

#33 Posted by Rirse (273 posts) -

Wonder if the PC version will have the Team Fortress 2 crew in it?

the 3DS version doesn't have the object editor, though.

the issue with this is that you assume this is a game only for kids.

#35 Posted by MrMazz (1036 posts) -

Well crap now I kinda want to WiiU

#36 Posted by sonicrift (305 posts) -

That's pretty adorable. I'm not getting my system till the Monday though, and would feel real dumb preordering and buying a game the day before.

Is the part in parentheses an aside or are you reiterating the first statement?

#38 Posted by KaneRobot (1791 posts) -

Wreck-It Wraph?

Yeah. A little TOO Wraph.

#39 Posted by DoctorWelch (2774 posts) -

I never comment on news stories, but I feel this warrants a "Cool, maybe I'll play this Scribblenauts games since I missed all the other ones."

So...Cool, maybe I'll play this Scribblenauts games since I missed all the other ones.

#40 Posted by Ne0teric (10 posts) -

Dig deeper into Princess Peach eh? Never thought I would read those words.

#41 Posted by Ravelle (1375 posts) -

The concept of these scribblenauts is great but for some reason it doesn't keep my interest for very long and I just mess around in the intro/sandbox area of the game making god fight godzilla with lightsabres or something.

#42 Posted by DEFE (266 posts) -

Every time I think I'm out, Nintendo...

#43 Posted by golguin (4014 posts) -

I like that their design is like Paper Mario. Where is that new Paper Mario game anyway?

Yeah, works nicely.

Imagine how pumped the artists at 5th Cell must've been when this went through.

#45 Posted by big_jon (5778 posts) -

Awesome, now where's DK, Samus, and the rest of the gang?

#46 Edited by skelington_ (292 posts) -

Gotta love Nintendo's approach. So this is how their 'creative cauldron' board meeting went earlier this year.

Nintendo Exec. 1: "Sooo... we've got this new Scribblenauts game planned. Don't know how to really 'big up' its profile for the U's launch though, if you know what i'm saying?"

silence.

Exec. 2: "OH I AM A FUCKING GENIUUUS! I know exactly how to 'big up' its profile!"

sudden intake of breath. all the other Execs are now leaning in with exasperated 'o' faces.

Exec 1: "HOW?"

Exec 2: "PUT FUCKING MARIO IN IIIT!"

all execs jumping and shouting, one foot to the next.

Exec. 1: "Why did we not think of that befooooooore!"

cue massive sales.

This is barely news.

#49 Posted by Xeiphyer (5608 posts) -

I actually love the way they look in Scribblenauts' art style. Would be cool to see them in their own game, like... say... a Paper Mario game.

Sticker Star is supposed to be out before the end of the year. I forget the exact date.

But Scribblenauts Unlimited is looking pretty awesome.
