It seems fans can expect a new Scribblenauts game in the near future. The Taiwanese Game Software Rating Regulations website recently added three entries for something called Scribblenauts Showdown for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Unlike some ratings leaks, this one actually includes cover art for the game as well, pointing towards a competitive multiplayer component perhaps?
You'd expect that a new Scribblenauts game would appear at tonight's Game Awards showcase, but that's not the case, according to Geoff Keighley himself.

The first Scribblenauts was released for Nintendo DS in 2009, while the last entry was Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure, released in September 2013 for Wii U, 3DS, and PC. Developer 5th Cell was working on a title called Scribblenauts: Fighting Words for iOS, but it was cancelled during a round of layoffs. Those layoffs cover 45 employees at the studio, including lead animator Tim Borelli.
