Update [Fri 27th Aug, 2021 02:00 BST]: The new roster additions have been revealed as CatDog and April O'Neil. It's been quite the week for April in particular - having also been confirmed for the upcoming TMNT game. Below are trailers for both of these new characters:
Original story [Tue 24th Aug, 2021 05:45 BST]: Smash Bros. style fighter reveals are all the rage nowadays and it seems the upcoming Nintendo Switch release Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl will also be following this template by premiering character announcements at major events.
It's been discovered via a teaser trailer that "2 new brawlers" will be announced at the Future Games Show Gamescom broadcast taking place later this week on 26th August. In the original announcement, IGN revealed the first set of fighters. Here's the list so far:
- 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)
This roster will be able to play across 20 levels based on a variety of Nickelodeon shows, and there'll be both single and multiplayer support, along with unlockable moves for each fighter.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is currently scheduled to arrive this Fall. Any idea who the next two fighters might be? Take a guess in the comments below.

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania and Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl are both getting characters announced this week!
Better be tuff puppy.
Give us our Jimmy Boy and Timmy Turner! XJ9 and Rudy & Snap later
Come on, ya gotta throw Rocko on there.
My money is on Aang and Korra.
If one of them isn't Quailman then I shall revolt.
@dinofan37 They have all been found out for a fact to be in a game form the boxart.
It BETTER be Nigel Thornberry.
Or Jimmy Neutron's dad, Hugh Neutron.
Edit: I forgot that Nigel was already confirmed lol
@HotGoomba It BETTER!
No Aang from avatar??
Kenan & Kel would be awesome
Always with the trends. Motion controls, loot boxes, character, announcement. Next thing we’re gonna have is battle royale, metroidvania, with loot boxes and paramount plus characters that get slowly leaked in for 3 years.
Bananaman and Mr. Wizard finally will have their time in the spotlight!
Whoever started this whole thing at Nickelodeon deserves a raise. They got people reeled in hook line and sinker.
Must be Doom guy and Master Chief.
Other characters wouldn’t make sense!
Korra, Ren, Stimpy, and Catdog were all confirmed via boxart silhouettes. Doodlebob was also confirmed via the devs discord.
Now give us Denzel Crocker (without any money given to butch) and nobody gets hurt...
Norbert and Daggett are my top two picks, my brother and I loved the Angry Beavers growing up. I'd love for us to be able to fight each other as those two. Ultralord, The Crimson Chin, Dib, and one of the Action League Now members would all be up pretty high for me as well.
@HotGoomba Have I got good news for you.
i just know that after all this hype, this game will release and everyone will be like "ugh this is the worst game ever" and I'm like "everyone should've saw this coming, lol"...
The game I never knew I needed until now!
Hope Catdog makes it xx
@PBandSmelly No way I missed that, doodlebob? I'm totally getting this game now.
@Exciter89 Angry beavers is a must.
stu pickles or rocko would be amazing, hopefully it's not aang, catdog, korra or ren and stimpy since the cover already confirms they're in and it wouldn't really be much of a surprise tbh
Jenny Wakeman, or I will riot.
Come on dora the explorer
Realistic Picks: Jimmy Neutron and Timmy Turner
Wild Card Picks: Dora and Carly Shay
Most likely ones already developed, so i'd say Aang and Korra, but hopefully we get Raphael and Donnie from TMNT in here too so we got the whole turtle team to battle as. Also would be a crime if they didn't include Jenny, Bessie, Otis, Tak, or the Glitch techs crew to the roster. Not very likely to happen, but it's wishful thinking.
EDIT: Also, just one last suggestion: ADD VOICE ACTING! CARTOON CHARACTERS ARE THEIR VOICES. A Nick fighting game without VAs is like fighting in a children's library.
I don't know I really need to hear some voice acting to get excited about this. The visuals look good, but, audio is really important for something based off cartoons.
I’m really wanting some Rocco representation. Rocco himself, Heffa, the fat heads, or really really big man would be nice.
Zeke the plumber and Mr. Tasty to please.
Gotta be Doug Funnie & Patty Mayonnaise, obviously.
Aang, Rocko, Ren and Stimpy, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Under Dog, and Quailman (Doug Funnie) definitely needs to be in the game. Both Under Dog and Quailman would make a good team-up.
Timmy from the Fairly Oddparents and Rocko from Rocko's Modern Life?
My money is on Really Really Big Man
@chocolate_supra Doug is no longer owned by Nickelodeon, the franchise is owned by Disney, Nickelodeon still owns the classic episodes but they can only use Doug to advertise them.
@PBandSmelly Most cartoons are not owned by their creators, it extends to other media, it's a sad thing that companies make millions and billions from characters from cartoons, movies, comics, videogames and other media, while the creator only earns his salary.
But sometimes this can be a good thing, creators like Butch Hartman, John Kricfalusi, Dan Schneider, Koichi Sugiyama and Ken Penders prove that the creator not owning his creation can be for the best.
I'll be really bummed if this doesnt have some sort of voice acting or music from the source material.
Rango from Rango, and Boney from Wienerville, please.
You did this.
Now we're getting...
Action League Now!'s
"He's super strong, and super naked!"
@dinofan37 it's just as likely to happen since game mill announced that they're making plans on the game and Nickelodeon(you keep spelling it wrong) is hands off they simply commissioned the developer Ludosity to make the game. They should be the ones to talk to about if voices will be included. Even then, Kart racers 1 & 2 were still fine games if basic and If you ever played the flash browser Super brawl games from Nick.com, they didn't have voices, bit they were still fun and original homages to Street fighter. We just have to wait and see what happens.
@dinofan37 geez, dude. We're mainly joking around like how fans ask for Rayman or another obscure game character in Smash. Chill with the correcting.
David the Gnome.
And flying Red Riding Hood from the opening credits of Grimm's Fairytale Classics on Nickelodeon's Special Delivery.
Stick that in your pipe and press ZL.
Rafael & Donatello!
Do you think live action characters will be allowed in the game?
I see the comments about Doug no longer being Nick IP, but dang, Quailman would have been dope
@dinofan37 Uh yes it does as there are hinted at.
Would love to see some Avatar representation too!
XJ-9 (Jenny Wakeman) would be nice
@Nintendo_Thumb Zims voice actor said they weren't even called in to do voice acting.
@dinofan37 why is it a lame joke?
I think it was at least a bit funny since a lot of people would love to see those characters in Smash
@dinofan37 us stu pickles enjoyers can dream
No Good Burger, no buy.
Exactly, your edit says it all. Just imagine if the Smash roster didn't have any of the characters voices lol.
@Friendly @Dragwhite @HDmumble
I suggest quitting while you’re ahead. The one you’re replying to (dinofan, EDIT: now dannyphantomfan) is Terry Syvertson someone well known on Twitter and YouTube for bullying, harassing, and sending death threats to anyone that doesn’t share the same opinions as he does or anyone that makes jokes.
Porkchop from Doug! Yep! I am that old.
@ralphdibny the screw in the tuna episode is my all time favorite.
I just want to main Squidward.
@NerdyBoutKirby Also an Are You Afraid of the Dark stage for the game would be nice too, nice for the Aaahh Real Monsters characters. Heck the game should include stages from Nick's other shows like Salute Your Short, Harriet the Spy, the Honker Burger from Doug, the Videogame Zone from Nick Arcade, Old Mac's Temple from Legend of the Hidden Temple, Bikini Bottom, the Technodrome, etc.
@dannyphantomfan36 @dinofan37 I know, that's why I didn't put them in the Realistic Picks
Also, STOP CORRECTING EVERYONE! Let us joke around and talk about our dream picks!
Spam on this thread is out of control.
I HOPE WE GET KENAN AND KEL IN THIS GAME AS TAG TEAM FIGHTERS
@Uncensored that's a brilliant one. I like the one where Kel gets mistaken for a famous artist too. Need to watch all these again, don't think they are available on any streaming service here in the UK. Though Netflix did have Sister Sister so I guess anything is possible!
@dinosaregarbage What a sad life to live, either they're a bored edgy minor or a lonely virgin man.
@Dakotastomp Sadly the latter
Age hint # on username
Alot of April love this week
better put Clarissa
I love Cat dog, and they look like a really good fighter.
I'm sad we're getting 3 80s TMNT characters. C'mon, you couldn't have used 03, 12, or Rise April? 12 and Rise wouldve been better suited anyways.
As one of the 5 people who enjoyed CatDog during its run, I appreciate their inclusion.
And from a fighting game perspective, it feels like there's a lot of potential for mix-ups, as you might have to be careful which side you're approaching.
Has 80's TMNT ever actually aired on Nickelodeon? Just weird that it's already has the same amount of characters as Spongebob (and I'm assuming the two other turtles are also going to be here so there might be MORE) for a show that's only in here because their parent company acquired them.
Yes I know that there's been reboots of TMNT, but that's not what's being represented here. It's 80's Turtles.
April O’Neil fans be eating like they’re at a buffet lately and I’m all for it
@DTFaux I was thinking that to, Dog seems to be heavy, wile cat looks to have fast attacks.
@Funneefox Ties on bib, nestles in chair comfortably, and readies his silverware.
I adored her when I was a kid! Let me have this!
Come on, give us Sokka you cowards!
Dino Spamoni dlc please
April is on a roll isn’t she? And CATDOG!!!
Good week for April O'Neill fans.
Wasn't expecting April but okay, at least this help advertised her for the upcoming Shredder's Revenge. Now she can give everyone a slice of pizza.
I aint buying this unless Steve from Blues Clues is playable.
boney from weinerville please.
@link3710 It's the same reason why Pac-Man has his classic design or why Cloud was picked over Cecil or Terra as the Final Fantasy rep in Smash Bros.
The 80's Turtles are likely the most popular versions of the characters even to this day, and they are trying to cater to fans of the 80's Turtles by using these versions over ones from more modern TV shows.
Since the whole game is banking on appealing to Nick fans young and old, it makes the most sense to use characters and desgins from the 80's Ninja Turtles cartoon.
It even gives them some indirect cross-promotion with the new Ninja Turtles game that's coming out this year.
Plus, maybe they have plans to either reboot or revive the 80's cartoon and bring it back. Given how big reviving old franchises is, especially specific aspects or shows, that's not out of the question.
I mean, there's talk right now of Batman the Animated Series and the DCAU being revived with new shows on HBO Max.
Who honestly knows at this point.
Let's do super obscure: Pelswick
Throw in a Double Dare contestant and you've got yourself a deal, Nickeloeon
They need to put in Raphael and Donatello
Using the same soundtrack and text for the two separate announcements just comes across as cheap and makes the game look cheap too.
Can you imagine SSB or MK announcing new characters with the same soundtrack?!
good burger rep would be sweet
@nocdaes Forgot they had a Nintendo/ Nether realm games budget.
stupid 80s turtles
always taking the spotlight from the better incarnations
just have the 2003, 2012 & Rise versions be alternate skins
the 80s turtles even showed up on Nickelodeon, outside of a couple crossover episodes from 2012
@DragotheKomodo @link3710 it's possible they could come as costume alts, or at least that's just wishful thinking, but after how "everyone in the TMNT" Fanbase agreed Rise was the weakest revival of the franchise because "different = bad", it's possible Nick wants to win back the old fanboys who will buy anything 80's turtles related, which chronologically did air on CBS Saturday mornings back in the late 80's early 90's. Also Nostalgia is hot rn and this does look to be leaning more to the 90's era of nicktoons(Excluding the louds), so fit the theme with 80's turtles. Sorry, that's just my rambling take.
@DTFaux Make it 6. Catdog wasn't my favorite show from when I was a lad, but it is quite memorable for me, especially when they finally meet their parents.
@nocdaes This is a nick game made by a pretty much indie studio. Ludosity and Gamemill don't have anything in the budget to make full on cinematic reveals. Now if this were THQ(Back in early 2000s), this game would be getting the full Ultimate experience, even convincing CN and Disney to join in and have Adventure time and The Owl house fight against Spongebob and friends, but no, it's a budget fighter.
When can we play as Alex Mack complete with turning into a puddle move? 😄
Pretty nice that April is getting some love recently
@Snatcher Fair point on budget, but attention to detail doesn't cost much...
@Dakotastomp Eh? I don't think I know anyone in the fanbase who doesn't love Rise. And I don't know that the other Aprils would work as alts. They're completely different in build and most of 80s Aprils attacks wouldn't make sense for them.
@link3710 Believe me, when the show first came out fans were hostile to it and anyone who enjoyed it for taking a different approach. I got made fun of by some rando who hated it and made up his own beliefs about me like i take drugs to justify why i must enjoy a show he doesn't like but whatever. It's a very fun and honestly incredibly animated adaptation that could easily triumph over the others in terms of style and designs of the worlds, but I get why some action heavy fanboys and lore obsessed goobers would be mixed with the new interpretation. Still it's my favorite recent tmnt series in a long time.
As for the skin alts idea for april, they can easily swap out or reskin her camera or microphone with a bat or Katana and make the alts have different sizes and attributes. That's just my suggestion. Obviously never gonna happen.
Couldn’t care who the characters are because this game is going to be absolute arse
@marnelljm you haven't even played it yet. So how can you say it's going to be arse?
I see Powdered Toast Man, but what about Log?
Betty DeVille please. She is tough.
TMNT was never a Nickelodeon property so why include them? Nickelodeon has plenty of original characters.
I always liked Catdog, not to mention a couple of these other shows. I would like to see Rocko, an angry beaver, or even Quailman.
@Tasuki TMNT is a Nickelodeon/Viacom property, the co-creator Peter Laird sold it to Nickelodeon in 2009.
@MitchK Quailman is probably not happening because Disney owns the Doug franchise, Nickelodeon only owns the original episodes.
Quailman for Nickelodeon All-Star is like Sora for Smash Bros.
@victordamazio I understand that but it's not an original Nickelodeon property so they shouldn't be included.
@Tasuki so, who should be included? Because a lot of nicktoons don't really fit the fighting game motif to begin with. Also, you have to think of this like a company that owns or has a strong business relationship with these properties. Doesn't matter that Tmnt wasn't originally a Nicktoon. They've own them since 2012 so they're in. Same goes for Garfield and possibly Big Nate and The Smurfs or Alvin and the Chipmunks, since Nick licensed the shows.
Hell yeah! this game is looking funner by each trailer X)
I hope Rocko makes its way to the brawl in the game.
