Scribblenauts is a franchise that has been popular on Nintendo systems since the days of the Nintendo DS, though it hasn’t gotten a new entry in a number of years after failing to meet sales expectations. After the development studio, 5th Cell, had significant layoffs and Warner Brothers cancelled it’s then-upcoming Scribblenauts game, it seemed that the franchise was dead in the water. However, now there’s evidence that seems to point towards a new Scribblenauts game on the horizon.
Nintendo Everything found a listing on a Taiwanese game rating board for Scribblenauts Showdown, which was listed for a multiplatform release with Switch included. The listing has been taken down at this time, but perhaps Warner Bros. is deciding to give 5th Cell another chance to get the franchise off the ground now that some time has passed since the last release. As ever, take this with a grain of salt until an official announcement, but don’t be surprised if this one maybe shows up in the next Nintendo Direct.
