He was number one!
Nickelodeon’s platform fighter is adding a little more variance to its current roster. Today, it was announced that Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl would be getting some free costumes added to the game, letting these Nick characters sport some new looks in fights.
The trailer (via IGN) says this free costume DLC will add new looks for every character in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. The costumes are live for every platform but Nintendo Switch now. Switch owners will get the DLC later on this month.
The costumes range from retro looks for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to alternate looks that characters sported in their own series. I’m particularly fond of SpongeBob getting the ‘Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen’ hat. It’s a good hat.
Others are just the additon of a hat or other piece of costume characters wore during their run. Though I will say, when it came to Korra’s alternate option, I was hoping it would be the short-hair look she sports at the end of Legend of Korra. If we can’t get Kuvira in this game yet, let’s at least get that.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl was a pleasant surprise when it was first announced, mashing up famous Nickelodeon characters in one big platform fighter. The end result, however, hasn’t been received so well. The online play is great, but the lack of voice acting was a major drawback, alongside lack of alternate colors. At least the costumes should help address the latter.
Meanwhile, the platform fighter genre looks like it’s going to get even more crowded with the announcement of MultiVersus, the Warner Bros.-themed platform fighter. With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate development come to an end, it seems like everyone’s inching in for the spot. If you’re still playing Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, or if you were at one point and have since stopped, let me know below if these costumes are enough to bring you back.
