Europeans have been waiting to get their hands on Scribblenauts Unlimited for some time now, with the game being pulled last minute from launch earlier this month. No solid reason has been given for the delay, but a new rumor has emerged stating that the game didn’t contain UK English, meaning words like “aluminum” and “flavor” are spelled the American way instead of the traditional “aluminium” and “flavour”.
This makes sense since the PC version of the game that’s available on Steam and can be purchased in Europe also supports US spellings while not recognizing those that are in the UK. It seems like a valid reason to pull the game since children who play the game won’t understand the difference between American and British spellings, but something could have been said to let loyal fans know this is the official reason.
Hopefully our friends across the pond will be able to get the game soon.
