An apparent trailer for Drawn to Life: Two Realms has leaked on YouTube, indicating that this old Nintendo 3DS and Wii series may be getting a modern revival for PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
Drawn To Life is a game that allows players to draw their own player character, weapons, and certain objects in the game world. Formerly published by THQ, this game allowed players to exercise their creative freedom in an intriguing way with a similar vibe to Scribblenauts, and developed by the same folks at 5th Cell.
Unfortunately, this franchise soon fell by the wayside. A version of the game was released for the Apple App Store back in 2014, but it no longer appears to be available. Now, a new trailer has leaked online and this may be the first confirmation that the game is getting a revival on modern systems — go ahead and give the trailer a look!

When is the Reported Drawn to Life: Two Realms Release Date?
The Drawn to Life: Two Realms release date may be December 7, 2020, if the leaked Drawn to Life: Two Realms trailer is accurate. The leaked trailer suggests that the game will be coming to PC via Steam, Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch,
Further investigation has yet to reveal any other tangible information regarding this leaked game; as always, take the validity of rumors with a grain of salt. If this revival is real, however, it's sure to make a lot of longtime fans happy to see the game return to modern systems.
