Why It May Take a While for 'Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl' to Add Voice Acting

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl has already become a firm favorite since it was released on October 5, however, one of the biggest aspects about the game that is garnering the most criticism is the lack of voice acting in the game. Although there's a lot of Nickelodeon characters in the game, none of them actually speak.

Joel Nyström, the CEO of Ludosity, the developer of the game, has said that voice acting may be added as part of future DLC, however, fans may be waiting a bit. It all comes down to one important thing that is mostly overlooked: every Nickelodeon character sounds depending on the country you're watching the show in. A good example of this is SpongeBob. Fans in English-speaking territories will hear Tom Kenny as the titular sponge, meanwhile, if you're watching SpongeBob SquarePants in Latin America, you'd hear Luis Carreño as SpongeBob. Most of the time, there are even different dubs for viewers in Spain and Latin America and Portugal and Brazil.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl has been released as a global game, with a fanbase around the world. Basically, it's a logistical nightmare. One reason that Ludosity may not want to add different localized soundtracks to the game is that it would increase the game's file size 10-fold, and may even increase the cost of the game.

That being said, never say never! Late last year, THQ added a Latin American soundtrack to SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, even hiring the same voice actor from the TV series. It is possible to add different dubs, it may just take more time.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. To find out more about the game, click here.
