While some Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans will be anticipating the revelation of the last character, other fighting enthusiasts will be looking forward to another game. The character showcases for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl haven’t stopped yet, despite the fact that the game is only a few days away. With more being teased, six distinct character movesets and levels have already been shown in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. Two gameplay demonstrations for Aang and Korra were shown this time.
Ludosity and Fair Play Labs are working on Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, which, unlike Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, will be available on all major systems. At first, the notion of a Nickelodeon fighting game sounds strange, but after the several character introductions, it begins to make a lot more sense. Nickelodeon is home to a slew of successful brands with their own TV shows, films, and even video games. Avatar: The Last Airbender is a hugely successful franchise.
In Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, Aang and Korra were each given a six-minute presentation that included both characters’ movesets and stages. Korra was shown to be a close-range brawler with a variety of charged special abilities.
Special attacks do minor damage and knockback when not charged, although whether or not a player chooses to charge a special move is ultimately determined by the fight’s conditions. For example, charging a move for too long may leave the player vulnerable.
Korra appears to deal a lot of knockback in the presentation, and she might be one of the game’s strongest characters. Fans of the series will remember her stage as Harmonic Convergence.
Despite being an Avatar like Korra, Aang plays in a very different way. While Korra appears to employ all of the elements in combat and is a brawler, Aang’s playstyle is primarily focused on air bending and combinations.
He’s a nimble fighter that excels at aerial combinations to keep his foes off the ground. He doesn’t have a lot of range, which may be an issue when dealing with opponents that have a lot of reach, but he’s simple to combo with. Even some of his downward attacks hit the opponent in such a way that it propels them higher, allowing him to lengthen his combos. The Western Air Temple is Aang’s stage.
Both showcases were entertaining and informative, with plenty of suggestions for fans of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl who want to have a deeper understanding of the various characters. These appearances are also an excellent method for the Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl to gain momentum.
Furthermore, showing off Aang and Korra so close to the release date would ensure that their movesets remain fresh in fans’ thoughts longer than if they were shown sooner. Even people who don’t watch other Nickelodeon shows like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or SpongeBob are familiar with these two characters.
The game still has more characters to show off, according to the Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl website. Although nothing has been verified, there have been rumors that Troph (another Avatar character) would appear. With so many properties to pick from, it’s feasible that the next reveal may take place outside of the Avatar universe.
