In two brand new trailers, the game announced that CatDog from the CatDog series and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ April O’Neil would be coming to the game. These two characters boost up the count of the confirmed roster to 16 playable characters, with more likely to be revealed in the months leading up to release.

Alongside the two characters, a PC version of the game was also confirmed, with a Steam version of the game coming out when the game launches later this year. While its full roster likely has more in store, the trailer (that was exclusively provided to IGN and is also at the bottom of this article) showed off 14 different characters. Here’s the now updated Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl roster as well as the show the character belongs to:
- Michelangelo (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
- Leonardo (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
- Lincoln Loud (The Loud House)
- Powdered Toast Man (Ren & Stimpy)
- Sandy Cheeks (SpongeBob SquarePants)
- Patrick Star (SpongeBob SquarePants)
- Oblina (Aaahh!!! Real Monsters)
- Nigel Thornberry (The Wild Thornberries)
- Lucy (The Loud House)
- SpongeBob SquarePants (SpongeBob SquarePants)
- Helga Pataki (Hey Arnold!)
- Reptar (Rugrats)
- Zim (Invader Zim)
- Danny Phantom (Danny Phantom)
- CatDog (CatDog)
- April O’Neil (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl will support four-play local play, online multiplayer, as well as solo play. It’s also worth noting that the developer confirmed on Discord that the game would have rollback netcode on “supported platforms,” which is odd phrasing. Rollback netcode is helpful for fighting games as it helps trim down lag and has been quite popular over the years as it has been included in titles like Guilty Gear Strive, Mortal Kombat 11, Skullgirls, and Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate does not have rollback netcode, much to the chagrin of fans.
There will also be 20 levels from Nickelodeon’s suite of shows, including the Flying Dutchman’s ship and Jellyfish Fields from SpongeBob SquarePants and the Technodrome from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Fair Play Labs and Ludosity are creating the game. Fair Play most recently released G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout, a widely maligned third-person shooter that has a 55 average on OpenCritic. However, Ludosity’s history is more closely aligned with Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl as it developed Slap City, a platform fighter with “Very Positive” and “Overwhelmingly Positive” reviews on Steam.
