Because of the Wii U GamePad – a 6.2-inch touchscreen controller – Scribblenauts Unlimited is a “perfect fit” for Wii U, according to the upcoming action puzzle game’s lead designer, Jeremiah Slaczka of developer 5th Cell. Slaczka describes the new console as a Nintendo DS, but with a significant amount of power. Scribblenauts Unlimted is a Wii U launch title, which means it releases on November 18th.
How’s it been working on this title for the Wii U? Does it carry any extra pressure that this is a launch game?
With Wii U’s GamePad, Scribblenauts is a perfect fit for the console. It’s just like a DS, the system it was originally designed for, but with much more power. I wouldn’t say there is extra pressure because it’s a launch title.
I’m actually very happy it’s a launch title; it’s a first for our studio!
Scribblenauts Unlimited is the first game in the franchise to introduce multiplayer. Talk to me about how co-op will work and how players can share their creations.
The game allows other players to “possess” any object they see and then act as that object would to help the first player. It’s a pretty neat feature.
