DLC characters confirmed for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, first two following “soon after” launch

The possibility for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl to have additional DLC fighters has been a huge topic of discussion amongst fans since the game’s initial reveal, and many have been campaigning and holding out hope for their favorite Nick characters to join the battle. Fortunately, we now have a definitive statement confirming that more are on the way. Game Informer recently sat down with Ludosity CEO Joel Nyström for a Q&A session, revealing some new pieces of information about the highly anticipated Smash Bros. inspired platform fighting game. When asked about the total roster size and post-launch plans, Nyström announced, “at launch, there will be 20 characters, with 2 more following soon after. Additional DLC characters will be revealed after that.”

Other questions within the interview may also provide context as to what characters we should expect. In regards to representation for live-action shows, Nyström stated, “there are no live-action characters in our base lineup, and we are currently not looking at any for future characters either,” adding that, “you never know,” but the focus is mainly on cartoons due to their more wacky and creative movement potential. However, not every Nickelodeon animated character is a shoe-in either, as there were apparently “global licensing issues” for a few of the fighters that Ludosity attempted for.

For more interesting discussion on all things Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, including the reason behind lack of voice acting, the competitive nature of the game, obvious comparisons to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and much more, you can check out Game Informer’s full interview here. Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is coming to Nintendo Switch on 5th October.

  1. What live-action Nick characters would anyone be vouching for anyway? Most of those shows were Dan Schneider productions, and he turned out to be a real scummy guy… Do we really want him associated with this?

    I’m still holding out for Jimmy Neutron.

  2. Soon After is not something you want to hear for Paid DLC. That means they cut content out to get you to spend more. Melee released with 26 characters at $50 2 decades ago during a time you didn’t have one fits all game engines. And of course Cartoon Network Punch Time explosion XL also had a small budget and 26 characters as well, with a full story mode. The 3ds version had only 18, but it was only $40.

      1. 22 characters still feels like too little. For the reasons I already stated. If the game hit the 26 character mark then I wouldn’t completely question the DLC characters. If anything the game should be coming out next year, so that people are paying $60 for a full game with a complete roster. But instead people are going to spend $50 for 3/4th of a game and then spend most likely past $60 to actually have a complete game. Which even with the DLC this game may have less money put into funding than Nintendo put into Skyward Sword HD.

        1. Your pulling a random number out of your arse and say that anything below is an unfinished game lol. There are awesome games with less of an roster, balancing is just as important, if not more, than roster size.

    1. Why would you let something so incredibly unrelated like Death Battle form your opinion for a video game? Death Battle isn’t canon and is widely considered uncredible by those who aren’t fanboys. It’s just meaningless fun videos, but if you don’t have fun with them don’t let them bother you either. But also that said, don’t feel obligated to purchase anything you don’t want to; I’m not trying to force you to make a decision purely to please my tastes

  3. Was going to suggest Powdered Toast Man & real monsters but they already made it.
    DonkeyLips-Salute Your Shorts
    Green Vampire-AreYouAfraidOfTheDark
    Repair Man-All That
    Super Dude and Milk Man-All That
    Also the Aggro Crag needs to be a level

      1. Man I hope we don’t get any of the live action characters in here even though they still fall under Nick, they just feel like entirely separate entities. Having Cartoon Network or the Disney tv shows appearing as guest stars would feel more natural than something like Jared Bell showing up.

  4. I hope your not a smash player talking about price of “a full game” if you want all the characters in smash your spending hella money… only people I see hating on this game either don’t like fast fighters or are salty smash bros fanboys.
