GameMill Entertainment Announces 'Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl'

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, a brand new fighting game featuring characters from SpongeBob SquarePants, The Loud House, Rugrats, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Ren & Stimpy Show, and more is set to be released later this year, IGN has revealed!

The brawler – which looks to be similar to Super Smash Bros. in style – will come to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in Fall 2021. It's being developed by Ludosity and Fair Play Labs, and published by GameMill Entertainment. GameMill has previously partnered with Nickelodeon to release Nickelodeon Kart Racers and Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix.

Check out a reveal trailer below:

A full list of characters has yet to be announced, but confirmed characters featured in the game include:

  • Michelangelo (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
  • Leonardo (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
  • Nigel Thornberry (The Wild Thornberrys)
  • Powdered Toast Man (Ren & Stimpy)
  • SpongeBob SquarePants (SpongeBob SquarePants)
  • Sandy Cheeks (SpongeBob SquarePants)
  • Patrick Star (SpongeBob SquarePants)
  • Oblina (Aaahh!!! Real Monsters)
  • Lucy Loud (The Loud House)
  • Lincoln Loud (The Loud House)
  • Helga (Hey Arnold!)
  • Reptar (Rugrats)
  • Zim (Invader Zim)
  • Danny Phantom (Danny Phantom)

We'll actually get to see Nigel Thornberry "smashing" it up!

All-Star Brawl will also feature 20 levels based on Nickelodeon shows (including Jellyfish Fields from SpongeBob SquarePants, and the Technodrome from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and will include single player and multiplayer modes, with local and online support for up to four players. You'll also be able to unlock new moves for every fighter, as well as earn bonus content for an in-game gallery.

A dev in the Ludosity Discord channel revealed that Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl will boast rollback netcode "on supported platforms." For anyone unfamiliar with the term, rollback netcode basically predicts a player's input when playing matches online, mimicking the conditions of local play, effectively circumventing delay issues.

Rollback netcode is especially popular with fighting games since their fast-paced action requires quick inputs. A bad internet connection can lead to moves not registering, which is why rollback netcode is such a popular demand for these sorts of games.

It's also been revealed that wavedashing, a Melee advanced technique featured in Super Smash Bros., will also be featured in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. In Super Smash Bros., characters are able to slide with attacks by air dodging into the ground. This allows the player to perform ground actions while still moving and is extremely important in competitive Smash play. This technique has a huge presence during high level gameplay.

A developer on Discord also revealed that would be a PC version, which is in fact the lead platform for the game. Additionally according to a developer on Discord, it will have GameCube adapter support.
