Scribblenauts creator Jeremiah Slaczka believes that Scribblenauts Unlimited is only possible on Wii U due to its unique features. The development team had been toying with the concept of Scibblenauts Unlimited for sometime, but couldn’t get their creation to work on Wii or the Nintendo DS. Slaczka says that Wii U is the perfect platform for the game.
“We’ve kind of had this in the pipe for a while. For a couple of years I’ve been wanting to do something like this, and the Wii U is also really, really powerful—Oh, that’s cool. With the Wii U we’ve been able to make the game way bigger, because with the object creation—putting all that stuff together—the DS just can’t handle all that stuff…even the Wii couldn’t handle it, but the horse-power of this can really handle it.”
