'Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl' Cover Leak Reveals New Fighters

The upcoming Nickelodeon brawler Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl just can't seem to keep the lid on the pot of Gak when it comes to upcoming reveals. In addition to the initial box art seemingly spoiling several unrevealed characters and a possible release date leak, it would seem that further key art for the title has confirmed several characters for the new video game. While it was recently officially revealed that CatDog and April O'Neil would be in the video game, the leak of what appears to be the full box art for the title includes four further as-of-yet unrevealed characters.

Specifically, the new leak indicates that Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender and Korra from The Legend of Korra will both feature alongside Ren and Stimpy from, well, The Ren and Stimpy Show. Previously revealed fighters already include characters from the likes of SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Hey Arnold!, Invader Zim, Danny Phantom, The Loud House, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, Rugrats, and more. Even with that, there is honestly no shortage of properties to pull from still, and that's not counting possible additions from already present properties.

You can check out the leaked art featuring Aang, Korra, Ren, and Stimpy for yourself below:

Previously silhouetted in shadow, the new box art (shared on Twitter and GameXplain) shows all of the currently announced characters plus the leaked four.

This brings All-Star Brawl’s more-or-less confirmed roster up to 20 fighters. Here’s the full list at this point:

  • Oblina (Aaahh!!! Real Monsters)
  • CatDog (CatDog)
  • Danny Phantom (Danny Phantom)
  • Helga Pataki (Hey Arnold!)
  • Zim (Invader Zim)
  • Lincoln Loud (The Loud House)
  • Lucy Loud (The Loud House)
  • Reptar (Rugrats)
  • SpongeBob SquarePants (SpongeBob SquarePants)
  • Patrick Star (SpongeBob SquarePants)
  • Sandy Cheeks (SpongeBob SquarePants)
  • Leonardo (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
  • Michelangelo (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
  • April O’Neil (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
  • Nigel Thornberry (The Wild Thornberrys)
  • Ren (The Ren & Stimpy Show)
  • Stimpy (The Ren & Stimpy Show)
  • Powdered Toast Man (The Ren & Stimpy Show)
  • Aang (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
  • Korra (The Legend of Korra)

As noted above, Aang, Korra, Ren, and Stimpy have not yet been officially revealed as of yet to be part of the roster, but it certainly seems to be only a matter of time at this point as the official release date also needs announcing still. Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is, as of right now, set to release for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch in Fall 2021. It seems likely that even more fighters beyond the currently confirmed and leaked will join the roster prior to it officially releasing.

While developer Ludosity has said All-Star Brawl will have its own identity as a fighting game, it’s also up front about drawing inspiration from Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. series. While 1999’s Smash Bros. 64 launched with a modest cast of 12 crossover characters, the rosters have ballooned ever since. Hopefully All-Star Brawl takes a few more pages out of Nintendo’s book and will introduce hidden unlockable characters, as well as additional ones through DLC. After all, if Kenan Thompson, Amanda Bynes and the Dancing Lobsters won't feature in the main game, they could be be assist trophies.
