Developers Ludosity and Fair Play Labs, and publisher GameMill Entertainment, announced that their upcoming 2D fighter Nickelodeon All–Star Brawl 2 has received a slight delay so the teams can focus on the “finishing touches.”
The digital version of the title will now launch on November 7, 2023, while the retail version will release on December 1, 2023. Additionally, the companies also announced that all digital purchases made during the first week of launch, between November 7 and November 14, will grant players the Patrick’s Elastic Waistband cosmetic.
Nickelodeon All–Star Brawl 2 will launch for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox, and PC via Steam.
The first title, and likely this one, boasts rollback netcode for increased responsiveness for all involved players. Further, the intricacy of the cast’s movesets is not to be underestimated, with the game’s lightning fast-paced requiring intense skill from those serious about being competitive.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl was somewhat well-received by the community as a platform fighter, including many characters from hit Nickelodeon shows from across the entire network’s time. The game previously added voice acting for characters and items in a free update.
Still, its relevancy waned quickly, so this direct follow-up has the potential to improve upon the original’s shortcomings and deliver a far more substantial experience that will satisfy fans in the long term.
Aside from gameplay improvements, this sequel will boast a new single-player campaign, trying to stop “Danny Phantom archvillain Vlad Plasmius from taking over the Nickelodeon universe,” which has roguelike elements.
