Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Announces Scribblenauts Unmasked - A DC Comics Adventure

Wildly Creative Game Franchise Expands to Include the Vast DC Comics Universe; Maxwell Must Help DC's Favorite Heroes Using the Super Powers of His Imagination

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwired - May 15, 2013) - Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces Scribblenauts Unmasked - A DC Comics Adventure, a new game that melds the boundless creativity of the award-winning video game franchise with thousands of DC Comics™ characters and objects across DC Comics worlds -- all drawn in the classic Scribblenauts art style. Created and developed by 5TH Cell, the game will be available for the Wii U™ system, Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system and PC in North and South America and Australia this fall.

Scribblenauts Unmasked features a story where players embark as protagonist Maxwell on an imaginative and comical quest, taking them through GOTHAM CITY™, METROPOLIS™, ATLANTIS™ and other iconic locales from the DC Comics universe. In the game, Maxwell comes to the aid of BATMAN™, SUPERMAN™ and the rest of THE JUSTICE LEAGUE™ as they face the mightiest DC Comics Super Villains, such as THE JOKER™, LEX LUTHOR™ and SINESTRO™. Fueled by the player's imagination, Maxwell must use his magic notebook to put a stop to the villains' evil schemes and save the day!

Expanding on the video game franchise's innovation, Scribblenauts Unmasked features for the first time dynamically created puzzles called Heroic Feats that increase the game's replayability by continuously generating original scenarios requiring different solutions with each visit.

"Scribblenauts Unmasked includes action-packed missions with fan favorite DC Comics Super Heroes adding to the players' puzzle solving experience as the beloved Maxwell," said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "Challenges in the game encourage broader player choices all set in well-known locations of the DC Comics universe, interacting in new and inventive ways with a wide range of popular DC Comics characters."

"Fans of both DC Comics and Scribblenauts can really let their imaginations run wild with the Super Hero Creator in Scribblenauts Unmasked," said Jeremiah Slaczka, C.E.O. and Creative Director of 5TH Cell. "Players will be challenged to craft new and never-before-seen characters such as Wonder Joker or Bane Lantern and use them to solve puzzles or share them with friends."

A new Super Hero Creator tool available on Wii U and PC elevates the game's creativity by giving players the ability to produce their own Super Hero or Super Villain using any item from the DC Comics universe and then setting properties for how it behaves, changing its appearance and powers. Players can then share their creations with the community and download others.
