Once upon a time, the original Scribblenauts launched with Maxwell’s beloved red rooster hat as a pre-order bonus. Super Scribblenauts ditched the iconic piece of headgear in favor of a pair of fluffy headphones, which were neat but not nearly as special.
With Scribblenauts Unlimited readying to launch this holiday season on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, Warner Bros. and 5TH Cell are bringing back the rooster hat, offering it in three different colors as an exclusive pre-order bonus through GameStop. When you pick up your copy of the game once it ships, you’ll get the hat in Maxwell’s classic red, his Doppelganger’s blue, or his sister Lily’s pink. I’m thinking most buyers who don’t get the red hat are going to be pretty pissed, but it doesn’t sound like there will be any choice. Pink and blue aren’t bad options though.
GameStop will also be offering a special bundle for the Nintendo 3DS version, which will include a copy of the game, a specially designed pencil stylus, and a silicone system case. Images and a product listing for the bundle are currently unavailable, but I have posted a gallery here with pictures of the full range of rooster hats as well as the game’s final box art.
Oh yeah, and stick around for this new gameplay trailer introducing the game’s new Object Editor feature. That’s right, Scribblenauts Unlimited will let you fully customize items from scratch and share them with others!
