Mario, Link and Other Nintendo Stars Join Maxwell in Scribblenauts Unlimited


Tekken Tag Tournament 2 isn’t the only Wii U launch title with Nintendo-themed crossover bonus content. Characters and objects from the Mario and Legend of Zelda franchises are also set to appear in Scribblenauts Unlimited, exclusively in the Wii U version.

Yep, that’s Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Link, Zelda, Epona and Goron up there standing next to Maxwell, Scribblenauts‘ resident hero and word magician. These fan-favorite characters will bring their unique personalities and behaviors to Unlimited‘s imaginative side-scrolling open world, along with familiar items from the respective franchises. These objects remain a secret for now, but I’m guessing (and hoping) we’ll see things like Triforce, Ocarina, Mushroom, and Gold Coin. And there damn well better be a Tanooki suit!

Scribblenauts Unlimited is scheduled to ship November 18th for Wii U, 3DS and PC. But remember, only the Wii U version will feature the Nintendo crossover. (Last I checked the 3DS was a Nintendo product too, but I guess they want everyone buying the Wii U version.) We’re currently working on an interview piece with 5TH Cell to bring you additional information about the game leading up to its release, so stay tuned for more Scribblenauts coverage soon!
