Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 is out today digital, with physical editions coming early December.
For those that are big fans of party-style fighting games like Super Smash Bros, Brawlhalla, and Multiversus, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 is shaping up to be a fantastic addition to the ever expanding list of Smash clones.
The first Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl was okay. It didn’t break any molds, had a lot of bugs, and generally just felt mediocre when sitting next to other fighting games of the same caliber. But, the sequel, on the other hand, came out today on digital platforms and took every ounce of feedback to heart.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 offers 25 fighters on the roster, which has plenty of returning characters from the first game. But, they brought in quite a few newcomers to the franchise, such as Squidward Tentacles, Jimmy Neutron, the Angry Beavers, Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender, and more.
The developers, Fair Play Labs and Ludosity, have been very forthcoming, over the past several months, with information and explanations about how they’re handling all of the feedback that the first game got. They built the entire game from the ground up and it really shows their love and care this time around. They want to make the fans proud.
In Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2, players can take on a story mode with a single-player campaign, play online with full cross-platform capabilities for up to four players, or hit up various additional modes like arcade or minigames.
You can pick up the game digitally right now on any console or Steam PC. The base game is only $49.99. But, if you’re feeling the long-term urge to play Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2, there’s a Digital Deluxe version for only $69.99 that includes the season pass with it, as well as the $79.99 Ultimate Edition that includes a new costume for every character.
If you need to decide later and just want to get started with the base game, the Season Pass is only $24.99 on its own.
But, you’re going to want that Season Pass. It includes future characters Mr. Krabs (Spongebob Squarepants), Zuko (Avatar: The Last Airbender), Rocksteady (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and Iroh (Avatar: The Last Airbender).
If you prefer a physical copy of the game, you don’t have to wait very long. It’ll be out December 1st, 2023 in retail stores and online. Keep an eye on their X account for more updates as the game rolls out.
