Lincoln Loud Won't Be Playable Fighter In 'Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2'

Lucy Loud's character spotlight has confirmed that Lincoln Loud isn't returning for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2.

A new Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 character spotlight trailer for Lucy Loud has revealed that her brother Lincoln Loud has been downgraded to a stage cameo.

As is typical for a fighting game and especially for a platform fighter, most of the discussion surrounding Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 over the past few months has been about its roster. While there are lots of highly-requested new additions like Squidward, El Tigre, and Jimmy Neutron, there have sadly also been a lot of cuts, with at least 11 fighters confirmed to have been removed between the first game and the sequel.

Although characters being cut between fighting game entries is incredibly normal for the genre, fans aren't too happy about who has been chosen to be removed and who has stayed, since some of the cuts are a bit confusing. Perhaps the most confusing of all is Lincoln Loud, the main character of one of Nickelodeon's most popular shows, and a generally well-liked fighter in the first game.

Despite this mass appeal, key art for the game and Avatar: The Last Airbender's Azula being called the "final character reveal" last week seems to have confirmed that Lincoln Loud has been removed from All-Star Brawl 2 in favour of his sister, Lucy Loud.

Although Lincoln won't be a brawler in NASB2, it looks like he'll still be making a cameo or two in the game. As pointed out by Redditor MrT0pHat on the Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl subreddit, Lincoln Loud actually does make an appearance in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2... as a stage cameo. If you look closely at the Loud Castle stage, you can spot Lincoln staring out of the window.

Lincoln isn't the only character that has been given the stage cameo downgrade treatment, either. Helga from Hey Arnold! can be spotted walking around in the spotlight trailer for Gertie, Arnold's grandmother, which was also taken as deconfirmation of her making an appearance at the time.

Although Lincoln and Helga won't be fighters at launch, they could be added as playable characters in a post-release Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 DLC update in the future.
