Okay, confession time: I’ve never played any of the Scribblenauts games. I know, I know… They sounded interesting, but somehow I never actually got around to picking any of them up. But that will all change when they release Scribblenauts Unmasked – A DC Comics Adventure! Details and some screenshots await you after the jump!

Developed by 5th Cell, Scribblenauts Unmasked has Maxwell on a fun quest through the DC Universe interacting with all the DC super heroes and villains. New puzzles called Heroic Feats are randomly generated every time you play to help with replayability. And of course, the series’ creativity seems to be in full effect in this game.

“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.”

Scribblenauts Unmasked will be available this fall  on the Nintendo 3DS, but the Wii U and PC versions will include the ability to create your own super hero or villain and sharing your creations with the community while downloading others. Personally, this is one of the first titles I’m going to be buying the Wii U version of. The GamePad touch screen will be perfect for interacting with the game, with the bonus of being able to create your own heroes! The game is supposed to contain all the DC super heroes ever, so my inner comic geek is looking forward to trying to stump it! (Or trying to use only female characters to solve the puzzles and see how far you can get) Sadly, judging from the screenshots, they’re using the New 52 designs… It would be awesome if the game included the classic costumes so I wouldn’t have to look at those ugly ones!

    I think this looks like the most interesting Scribblenauts so far. I played the first one for the Nintendo DS, and although it had an interesting concept, I got bored with it. The mechanics kind of sucked, and after a while, trying new and weird things just for the sake of it lost appeal. Maybe the later games improved on that, but when random things were dropped into the game world and they didn’t really interact with each other, or do anything interesting, it got boring. At least this DC version looks like it has a plot, and interesting locations.
