Since these are the early days of “Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl,” there’s still more information to come, including a specific release date. That being said, the end of the launch trailer promises that the game is set to release sometime during Fall 2021. Since the trailer was released July 13, that’s a fairly short turnaround.
It’s clear that a lot of work went into this game, and it’s looking promising. Developer Ludosity is known for working on “Slap City,” a campy platform fighter with overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam. The team seems passionate about the project. As chief designer Elias “sinxtanx” Forslind told Kotaku, “I hope this game can also inspire others to keep experimenting with the platform fighter genre. It’s more than 20 years old now, but it still feels like a young genre, with lots of potential.”
The dev team even hopes to see “Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl” take off in the competitive sphere, and this big dream could actually become a reality. As Ludosity CEO Joel Nyström wrote to Kotaku, “Nickelodeon is absolutely on board with having the game be competitively viable. That’s been in the conversation from the start. That’s why they came to us.”
Of course, “Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl” is still meant for casual fun as well. Though the upcoming title will definitely share some similarities with “Slap City” and “Super Smash Bros.,” it promises to be unique in its own right.
