Nintendo Delays Scribblenauts Unlimited At The Last Minute

Nintendo has delayed the release of 5th Cell’s Scribblenauts Unlimited in Europe.

“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,” said the company in a press release just issued.

“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.”

The game was set to be released this Friday. Press copies went out last week and presumably retail channels already have the game. It’s not clear what the exact issue is that has caused the delay.

The game was released last year in the US.


  1. This game is riddled with delays. For some reason the PC version was also delayed, even though all the languages were already in the international version so it couldn’t have been localization issues.

  2. It must be licensing. It can’t be broken this late unless the day one patch isn’t ready

  3. Weird – if they delay it by much it’ll get lost between Rayman Legends, Monster Hunter Ultimate and Lego City….

  4. Personally I’m not fussed as I have loads to play at the moment, but it must be annoying for Wii-U owners who wanted something to tide them over until Rayman Legends and Lego City.
