Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) is expanding the Scribblenauts gaming franchise with Scribblenauts Showdown, a new video game featuring party game modes for up to four players.

Scribblenauts Showdown will be available on March 6 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game’s Showdown mode allows players to face off using card-based strategies. There are also a number of mini-games, which require players to unleash objects or characters using the Scribblenauts dictionary, or to complete a challenge faster than their opponents.

In the Versus mode, two players go head-to-head in more than 25 mini-games. The Sandbox mode, meanwhile, allows one or two players to solve objectives in eight new levels by summoning any object they can imagine from the game’s dictionary of nearly 35,000 words.

Last year, WBIE inked an agreement with Pokémon GO creator Niantic to launch Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, an augmented reality mobile game. The app is co-developed by Niantic and Warner Bros. under Portkey Games, WBIE’s new label that will create games and mobile experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.
