Scribblenauts Unlimited Release Date Pushed Back

Last Minute Delay Scuppers This Week's Launch

With only a few days to be before its intended release date, just when European Wii U gamers thought they would finally be able to get their scribble on again, Nintendo has announced that Scribblenauts Unlimited has been delayed. A press release issued this morning from the Big N didn’t give much away in regards to why the last-second decision had been made.

“We are sorry to announce that Scribblenauts Unlimited, a game developed by Warner Bros. Interactive & 5th Cell and published by Nintendo of Europe for both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, will be delayed in Europe. It has come to light that some changes need to be implemented within the game before we launch them across Europe. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and we hope to make further announcements on the European launch of these games very soon.”

No new release date has been issued at the time of writing, so unfortunately it looks like it’s yet another case of “please wait” from Nintendo. There is no word on whether the PC version was also affected as a result, but we’ll keep you posted as more details emerge.

Well, Nintendo are forced into this situation. It does state, "some changes need to be implemented within the game."

Maybe if the devs would get their dates and workflow the way they want to begin with, these kind of delays wouldn't happen. Toki Tori 2 was another delay that let down folk, just before Christmas. But, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, since the changes they made were rather extensive and will benefit the game overall.

However, Scribblenauts is on other platforms, so, what could possibly need changed within the game?
