Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is set to take the fighting game world by storm – this Super Smash Bros-style fighter stars a cast of iconic characters from Nickelodeon’s past, from Aang to Zim. One Nickelodeon property, however, has become somewhat of a stale across other fighting games over the last few years – the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The heroes in a half shell have been popping up not only in their own titles, but also in crossovers with other games – like their appearance as playable fighters in Injustice 2’s Fighter Pack #3, or their epic battles against the gods in Smite. Recently, the publisher GameMill Entertainment have given us a look at how the TMNT’s leader Leonardo will play.
Unsurprisingly, Leonardo’s main attacks will use his iconic swords, though they won’t be doing all that much damage. Instead, Leonardo’s speed and his range of different techniques will allow players to pull off some impressive combos and quickly whittle their opponents’ health away. There also seems to be a few references to previous TMNT titles hidden in his moveset – in articular, his Scissors Slash and Endless Screw moves are suspiciously similar to his moves in the SNES classic Turtles In Time. You can check out the showcase trailer right here!
As the trailer shows, the turtles will also be bringing a few stages along with them. Unsurprisingly, the first revealed is Sewer Slam, representing their subterranean home. There are plenty of details here for TMNT fans to spot, from the radioactive sludge that’s pumping through the pipes to the turtles’ old ally mondo Gecko skating through the sewer.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is set to release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch on October 5 – keep an eye out for more character spotlights as we get close to the game’s release!.
