Scribblenauts for the Nintendo DS took a bit more than it could chew. But the series is back around to fix that. Super Scribblenauts, for the Nintendo DS, adds new items, words, and adjectives for people to play around with. The title will also have a more streamlined control system, so players can control Maxwell easier.
The title is set to launch October 16th. Those who preorder at GameStop in the United States get a special pair of super comfy looking headphones.
You can check out both the headphones and the trailer after the jump.

This Autumn, consumers will be able to pick up the sequel to Scribblenauts, Super Scribblenauts.
The spotlight feature of Super Scribblenauts is the adjective system. Players can attach adjectives to objects. You can spawn a flaming bird, striped potatoes, or really, anything. At least in theory.
With the announcement of a release window and name change, 5th cell has also released three screen shots for Super Scribblenauts. If you played the original, everything should look pretty familiar.

As of right now, Scribblenauts 2 has only been announced for Nintendo DS, but a Sweedish retailer has listed a Wii version as well.
The listing could be a simple mistake, but the original leak of Scribblenauts 2 listed it for both Wii and PC as well. Almost all of the details from the leak have been true so far, so there is a good chance we may see the title move to the consoles.
5th Cell talked about more improvements that will be coming to the sequel to last year’s Scibblenauts. Again, most of the details seem like they are just basically fixing things and improving certain aspects of the first game.
Maxwell now controls 1:1 where in the first title you were more of guiding Maxwell. Objects now have more weight and stick together easier.
The action levels from the first Scribblenauts have been removed. 5th Cell is also taking steps to block players from simply using the same set of words to beat every level.
The custom level feature is getting a bit of a bump in features. You can now use textures and build levels with tiles, rather then using a preset level designs. Players can also set specific winning conditions and objectives for their stages.
And lastly, the title will have an multi-object blender that allows you to create items without typing in words.
Have the current details on Scribblenauts 2 convinced you to buy the sequel yet?
You may have already seen this if you picked up the recent Nintendo Power, but in Scribblenauts 2 players can attach any adjectives they want to nouns in the game. These adjectives can also be stacked.
5th Cell provided an example to Nintendo Power of how exactly it works. You can check it out after the jump.

The original Scribblenauts was fairly heavily hyped and unfortunately wasn’t received well mainly due to poor controls. The game still sold surprisingly well though. As with almost any game that sells well, a sequel is on the way.
Nintendo Power revealed that Scribblenauts 2 is in development and slated to hit this Fall exclusively on Nintendo DS. 5th CELL said they will be adding 10,000 new words, but more importantly will be fixing many of the issues found in the first game.
The title will support D-pad controls along with improving touch screen controls, so hopefully moving will be less of a chore. The camera and physics engine are seeing major updates as well.
The developer is creating 120 new levels for the title and plans on making them deeper with more content and expanding the level creator. The par system has been removed completely.
It is great to see the franchise get a second chance. While the first one was not perfect, it held quite a bit of potential. Hopefully those who bought the first Scribblenauts will be willing to give the sequel a shot.
Warner Brothers accidently leaked their upcoming 2010 titles. A good chunk of the titles weren’t exactly notable, but there were two worth mentioning.
The first worth mentioning is F.E.A.R. 3 and if you are not familiar with the series its like a horror first person shooter complete with a creepy little ghost girl. Scribblenauts 2 was also listed but had a interesting tidbit along with just the listing. The list says the title is being developed for Wii, DS and PC.
We don’t know if 5th cell is working on Scribbulenauts 2 as of right now though. Last I’ve heard is that they were moving onto developing games for consoles, specifically a XBLA if I recall correctly.
After E3, the love for Scribblenauts exploded all over the Internet; Our forum in particular has a Scribblenauts topic thats fifty five pages long (Which is now on version 2). Despite the game just coming out days ago on, 5th cell is already teasing something for Scribblenauts fans.
The Scribblenauts‘ Facebook page has a post saying “Get your rooster hats ready! We have a very special announcement coming very soon…”
Other then the fact its a Scibblenauts announcement, no one can really say what it may be. I highly doubt its a new entry in the series already, but maybe it is a port of the title to the IPhone or possibly a way DSi users to download new content. We will just have to wait and see.
