It’s a lot of hype in such a short amount of time, usually this kind of thing fizzles out after a few weeks.
Either way, might as well enjoy it while it lasts!
A few weeks of talking about an unreleased game is a lot of time.
True. Plus it’s a lot of free advertising for Nickelodeon too
I think this is another case of Fall Guys/ Among Us. Blows up the internet for a week or two and then goes back to mostly forgotten for Fall Guys or an over used meme for Among Us.
Agreed, unless the game really is actually competitive which I don’t have a feeling it will be (though I could be wrong) I think it won’t be as long term or remembered as people think it might.
Pretty sure the devs said in discord they had competitive play in mind
That’s great to hear, as long as the game is fun and isn’t clunky I’ll probably pick it up anyways
Can’t wait to see a spongebob main pull a fucking nasty play at evo
Spongebob? Imagine Dora The Explorer spiking you to infinity and innocently taunting at the end of it. "Muy bien! We did it!"
Gibby fucking wombo combos you into oblivion the second you spawn and ends with a ‘gibeeeeeh’ taunt
Dreamworks also work with Nickelodeon from time to time, so Shrek and Boss Baby may not be so far fetched...
The devs from slap city are actually working on it, and slap city is a criminally underrated game in my opinion, with quality movement and cool air grab stuff. If they got their input into the game I think it could actually be a really fun game both casually and competitively.
EDIT: I mistook Slap City for Gang Beasts, please ignore this comment
~~That’s awesome, the ragdoll goofiness of Slap City and Human Become Flat are great, it’d be cool to see if they translate any of that goofy chaos into this game~~
I think you’re mistaking Slap City for Gang Beasts
If the game ends up playing decently it’s practically already more competitive than ultimate
They do got that rollback netcode...
The devs interviewed via Discord that the Switch version probably isn't going to have rollback due to performance issues.
Thanks for that info. Now I know not to get the switch version.
Games not even out yet. Wait on those comparisons until it drops my guy.
While I don’t think this game will truly kill smash, the game having Nick characters is enough reason to buy it anyway. Plus I owned almost all of the nicktoons games, this is right up my alley.
Fall guys still gets 6-11k players consistently throughout the day, and that's just the steam version. Obviously that's not a huge number but that's still not even close to dead, and if this game managed something similar that would be fantastic.
I felt like among us died the second the jerma meme came out
Mmm, bullshit? You can't compare something as repetitive and stale as Fall Guys, to a Smash clone made by someone competent. Which has, before releasing, has better multi-player than the best selling fighting game.
there's never been "this kind of thing"
NIGEL COMIN YO
only thing i need is aang.... and its a frame 1 purchase. fuck the 11 fighter, unless its appa idc
As a die hard ATLA fan, I agree. Instant nut if we get more than just Aang as a fighter.
Where my future Zim mains at?
Invaders rise up.
Oh bro don’t even get me started!
Right here bitch! Wearing my Zim shirt rn
Zim Zam the space man here
You already know
I cant wait to hear a commentator during a tournament scream "SPONGEBOB DESTROYED RAPTOR OMG! KRABBY PATTY KRABBY PATTY!"
"DORA THE EXPLORER READ GARFIELD'S MOVES AND COUNTERED IT WHILE AT A HIGH PERCENTAGE"
\*Nigel drop kicks Dora\* "DESTRUCTION!"
DOG EATS EM UP AND CAT SPITS EM OUT!!!
BAH GAWD THAT DINOSAUR HAD A FAMILY!
Fighter Pack 11 isn't Aang, so I don't care.
And it ain’t Danny phantom or Bill cipher, so fuck that shit
Well I think lot's of people are going to be disappointed with pack 11. That being said I could see All Star Brawl getting a lot of support because of the amount of people who are bored with smash, disappointed, or just want to play Nigel Thornberry
if anything - I'm hoping this prompts nintendo to properly support their online.
Imagine smash with proper netcode, enabling their other game modes like Smash Down & Squad Strike, Queued 2s matches again and other systems available online in most other fighting games. Hell just bringing back the
competitive and casual mode with rematch options would be nice.
I used to think they shy'd away from online to preserve their "E for everyone" rating but if Nickelodeon actually has proper mechanics and systems in place for their children's game then Nintendo would have no reason to not follow suit.
Of course money talks and as much fun as the Memes are I don't expect Nickelodeon All Stars to impact smash in the slightest... but its always nice to dream.
I dunno… Ninty barely takes queues from other major gaming companies, I doubt they’re gonna do something just because Nickelodeon does (if they even do).
I hate to be that guy, but it's cues. I literally used to spell it the same way so I feel you
Ahhh damnit I knew that. Good call, though.
The only reason why I think it could legitimately gain a foothold over smash in the competitive community is because of Ludosity's involvement. If nintendo keeps treating its competitive smash community like garbage and refusing to fix online, I wouldn't be surprised if this game or one similar to it becomes more played competitively.
That would be fucking hilarious
There are so many amazing things to consider and saying them all out loud makes me feel like someone will overhear and reset the timeline.
* "How do I recover against Carl Wheezer?"
* "Yo, my Patrick Star's shmooving"
* "I can't believe Tommy Pickles and Shredder are going to game 7 at Evo"
* "OMG another Avatar Rep..."
* "Doug Dimma Dome is OP"
Honestly the list is endless...
How dare you not use his full title "Doug Dimmadome owner of the Dimsdale Dimmadome"
Honestly I love Smash on local play, but online has always been hot garbage for the series, ever since brawl. Unless they fix that NALB is gonna be infinitely better for online tourneys and that gives them quite the advantage for forming a scene.
Nintendo isn’t changing their online no matter what happens with this other game. It sucks but that’s how it’s going to be.
I'm planning on getting it because I've wanted to see Aang in a platform fighter for a while now.
Me here. Not to complain but Pass 2 didn’t have any characters I really cared for, cool editions nonetheless. I know this game is guaranteed to have characters I love so I’m putting my eggs in the Nickelodeon basket for now
Steve was my hype character, once he got in I didn’t really care what other characters made it in.
More like people want an actual functioning smash online
oh yeah that too
if fp 11 isnt a big reveal and some first party stuff I reckon people may even switch from smash !!!
for about a week ofc...
I said it last night, it’s going to be a Gen VIII rep unfortunately.
Personally, I hope it’s Rillaboom to round out the Water Fire Grass triangle they’ve got with Greninja and Incin
same here I also want rillaboom
What moves would you give him for specials?
Only ones I’d do for sure are Drum Beating for his neutral B and then G-Max Drum Solo for his FS (I’d follow the same pattern for the other starters too)
I can also see Zacian as well, Behemoth Blade for the FS
[moveset that I liked for rillaboom](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgUcZdj0k4E)
Damn I love that, I adore how he integrated the ability in.
My only complaint with that is that I more commonly associate Rillaboom with Grassy Surge from VGC
Urshifu would be dope
I hope it isn’t, we have enough humanoid Pokémon in smash we need more beasts. That’s why I said Rillaboom (an ape) and Zacian (a wolf)
I’d rather Rillaboom myself, if only so Sakurai can mention the funny Xenoblade monkey
What possible big reveal they would have? They already have hero, steve and sephiroth to my understanding. Unless it's sora?
Master Chief/Doomslayer/B.K Blaskowitz/Overwatch Character/Assassin's Creed Character?/Resident Evil Character/Lara Croft?/Claptrap(Or Another Borderlands Character)/Kratos/Mortal Kombat Character/ or
Or honestly you could put the longest most awaited character:
(Psst. Or Paper Mario is my favorite first party pick)
I'm hoping Scorpion or SubZero make it in but I have a feeling it's going to be Master Chief.
I think assassins creed is off the table after the mii costume and having another fighting game character right after kazuya seems unlikely
If we do get another fighting game character I may just quit smash at that point tbh. To me fighting game characters in smash aren’t as fun to play and just seem less original and somewhat lazy compared to some other characters
There's a million hype characters it *could* be, including just about any character who's primarily from a PlayStation or Xbox franchise.
But it probably won't be.
*Piano notes intensify*
heres a few that will freak people out
crash/sora/master cheif/doom guy/ryu hayabusa/rayman/hollow knight/phoenix wright/tetris blocks
Hollow Knight would actually be super fun. Easy to make a moveset for too.
Yeah but what about my boy Tetris blocks
Another Kirby rep would be nice
Not big enough.
Sora/Chief/Wright/Crash/Rayman/Spyro/Doomslayer/Shadow/2B/Chosen Undead,Cursebearer,Ashen One,The Hunter,Sekiro/Amaterasu/Hollow Knight Guy/Heavy/Eggaman/Monokuma/Kratos and hell i could go on.
I feel like I'm the only person saying this, but I think Fighter's Pack 11 is gonna be the protagonist of Shin Megami Tensei V.
Which is exactly what will piss people off enough to consider switching to Nick All Star Brawl.
well tbf a few amount of people have been considering a new smt rep lately for smash
SMT was on Nintendo Consoles before it was even SMT, I'm honestly surprised Joker made it in before one of the SMT protagonists like Aleph or Flynn.
odd choice definitely
As soon as I saw that Byleth was the last character of FP1 and they announced a 2nd pass. I distinctly remember saying that the final fighter is gonna be a Pokémon because Nintendo has no shame. I have like $30 on this one
Future Squidward main here.
I hope it’s fun but the art style is god awful IMO
I already joined one. Wtf.
Maybe Nintendo is playing the long game.
Danny Phantom's move pool better be amazing. He's actually an action-oriented character.
YES! I’m on my knees BEGGING that his move set is basically a replica of the shows!
Same with XJ-9 (Hope she's in it)
Nostalgia is a big part of the Smash Bros appeal. More people watched Nick growing up than played Nintendo. It's easy to see why there's such a buzz around the game!
> More people watched Nick growing up than played Nintendo.
Nintendo has been making home console and handhelds for nearly 40 years and sold millions of games and systems worldwide.
You think most kids did not play both Nintendo and watch Nickelodeon?
Plus there are ones like me that watched Cartoon Network as a kid, and kept watching them over Nickelodeon as they got older because Cartoon Network ran anime like Dragon Ball Z.
Barring Nick at Night and Nicktoons when they ran Dragon Ball Z Kai, I have not watched Nickelodeon in decades.
I can't be the only one who really never watched Nickelodeon and has no real attachment to the roster.
The only characters I care for are the Ninja Turtles and they found success long before Viacom bought the franchise and handed them over to Nickelodeon.
“More people watched Nick growing up than played Nintendo”
Here sir, I think you might’ve dropped this: 🧢
Crazy that they skipped melee and went straight to brawl
Can’t wait for people to say Nickelodeon All-Star Melee was better
Roll back net code is a big thing.
Obviously it gained alot of attention because there's not really much Smash-like games as promising and big as Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl
But I do have a feeling alot of the reasoning is because Smash only has 1 singular DLC left and... how do I say this without pissing people off... lets just say the last character will probably be someone uninteresting to the vast majority
Been a HUGE fan of smash since N64 but the way nintendo treats the community completely pushed me away. I am def excited for this game & if it has crossplay & mechanics I will be rock hard
Crossplay that actually works would be instant nut material
Dude! Said the same thing to my friends. Imagine not being limited to a 720p handheld device 🤣
Imagine playing smash handheld in 720p
Was just a joke but I see where you’re coming from lol
How did it push you away? You're still in this fan subreddit about the game.
I just stated ive been a huge fan but pushed away. I dont understand your logic. Why would I leave the subreddit? They dont support any tournaments that are not organized by them, Big House & Slippi. is one example. You need to do research if you plan on defending Nintendo, check out how they treat the community keeping their 15+ year old game alive.
edit: spelling fix & justification tweak
I don’t think they are defending Nintendo just arguing the logic of your statement. You said Nintendo COMPLETELY pushed you away. And as you’re still in the subreddit community you aren’t completely pushed away.
Its kinda semantics, but I think they’re right. However, its fine to be pushed from the game, but still in the community.
I appreciate your input! I see where you are coming from but I guess I can still be completely pushed away to the point I don’t play, but still lurk the subreddit in hopes updates in the right direction :)
I didn't say anything about Nintendo.
I agree with that. I still don’t understand the purpose of your comment? Just came off as rude after I’m simply stating my opinion. I can be pushed away to the point from playing the game, but browsing a subreddit for news and updates is a different topic
You said it completely pushed you away, and I asked how it pushed you away. What's rude about that?
You implied that if I’m pushed away I can’t be on the subreddit lol
fuck the tournaments tho. i tottaly support nintendo on that part
Yeah I completely understand why they made that decision, but I do wish they weren’t that harsh about it. The fact an external developer made online matchmaking with minimal latency during covid on a 15 year old game and they just it down sucks
Buddy subreddits absolutely do not mean everyone in them is a fan of whatever the subreddit was made for ie r/joerogan r/rickandmorty r/politics
graphics look cheesy af honestly
Well, yes. 3d game about cartoons.
The only character model that does look a little dopey is Danny. It’s been like 10 years since all of the old nicktoons games and they still haven’t managed to make him look good in 3D.
Also hoping they revive the nicktoons games. For licensed games, they were pretty good.
Well Butch Hartman characters just don’t look good in 3D in general, you’d have to get real creative to make them look good
Well this is the right direction to go with Nick Toons, get someone whose indie game that falls in the same genre has the care and love they want to see in their title.
Yeah, it's clunky.
I mean, it's a licensed Nicktoons game. I'm not expecting anything ground breaking. Then again, the game was exclusively announced by IGN, has taken the internet by storm, and appears to be developed by a competent team.
Maybe this won't be a cheap, licensed cash grab for Nick.
Yeah, I don't think general quality will be that of smash, but rollback netcode is pretty good. Most of the people who i've talked to about it agree that it looks like a mod of smash, that adds in new characters, and maybe has a few differences
Wait there's a fighter pack eleven?
bruh u good its been a thing since last january, that was fp2 challenger packs 6-11
There will be.
Fighter Pack 11? Who cares. It's gonna be somebody nobody cares about.
But Nigel Thornberry in Nick All-Stars?? Now you're speaking the people's language!
That "nobody cares about" thing really pisses me off😁
Yea, no matter who it is someone out there is guaranteed to adore the inclusion. Take Banjo and Steve for example, I had no idea who Banjo was before Smash while others have been waiting for their inclusion since Melee. The same went on for Steve while some called them a joke pick while there's people like me who grew up with Minecraft and loved the inclusion.
No matter who it is, someone will love it.
Standard internet meme hype. It’ll die out after a few weeks.
You don't have to play every video game for 10+ years. Can just enjoy the ride, have a good time, then move on whenever.
Will it live up to the hype? Maybe, maybe not. But the devs from Slap City are working on it and if that isn't a mark of quality I don't know what is
also go play slap city >:)
what it is ?
A very good smash clone, but it didn't really blew up because it lack iconic characters in the roster to pull anyone in.
Zim mains rise up
If I had to guess, it's because people are bracing themselves for disappointment, while All-Star Brawl doesn't have any expectation when it comes to its roster. You don't have fanbases for each Nicktoon clamoring for a fighter as much as there are other video game franchise fanbases asking for the same thing in Ultimate.
There's also the fact that many palyers bought the fighter's pass and they cannot refund their purchases; they HAVE to accept the last fighter, regardless of their tastes.
I feel like most will play it at launch just for the meme of it. I mean, it has a playable Nigel Thornberry...
It's a sideshow
Is anyone actually hyped? Lol, the game looks awful, I think most people are just memeing.
Aside from the hurtboxes... the game looks to be competitive friendly. A bit loony but what can you expect? they're cartoons.
However this looks to be Smashlike in all the best ways. It's fresh and it is a nice change of pace from 'Spongebob in Smash' memes to just have him be the Mario size mascot for his own game instead.
Lmao, this is hilarious. This game is going to be absolutely dog, the graphics alone are nauseating.
Yeahhh I’m honestly confused about why people expect this to be anywhere close to the quality of Smash. It’s not like Nick Kart Racers was even half as decent as Mario Kart…
It’s because the game is being developed by Ludosity, the same people who made Slap City. iirc Slap city is regarded as one of the best smash clones by a lot of pro players so these guys know what they’re doing at least
never heard of slap city before so i dont think its that good or popular
Idk some smash players were hyping it up for a while but it sort of fell off after a while
Ahhh yes,the classic.
I don't know it = bad
top tier analysis right there
It just didn't blow up since it lack iconic characters for anyone to be pulled in. Alpharad has played it numerous times in his channel.
I used to be a big fan of the Super Brawl series (Nick's fighting game) so I am hyped.
I do understand why people are so hyped for this, but Nickelodeon has no significance for me whatsoever, so I don’t exactly care.
Now if there was a Disney XD version of this, you can bet your boot I’ll be a Dr. Doofenshmirtz main
Are you a Cartoon Network fan?
Used to be, until the ongoing Teen Titans Go! era came around
My god, they made an entire special of them commenting over Space Jam. TTG is the worst.
I really miss the original
The original, takes me back.
Really, really off topic question. But is the og Ben 10 the best? TTG and gumball have driven me away Cartoon Network, so idk what the good stuff is
Ben 10 (2005) is an amazing show with funny moments, well animated action, and fantastic characters. You should absolutely watch it.
*laughs in bill cipher main*
Fighter packs 3-10 were totally forgotten about.
I was making a joke on him mistaking challenger pack with fighter pass
i fail to see the hype around a game about kid’s shows
Lmao but youre a big fan of the game about other kids games? This isnt complicated buddy
You’re on a subreddit for a game about kids games
Being honest here, nickelodeon one looks like it's going to suck
Fight back! We must be LOYAL to the game we have been playing for three years and not just switch wishy-washy to some weirdo game that has Spongebob Squarepants and TMNT in it! Please, go steady with Smash Bros.
Sign this petition here to go steady with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate today: [Petition](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ)
Thank you for your time. Your support is much appreciated >:)
Why they downvoting you lol
Yea idk man. T'was a fricking joke lmao
Frankly I find it kind of funny that the guy calling me a monkey is actually proving himself to be the absolute Neanderthal
It’s because All Star Brawl gives us characters we actually connect to have a sense of nostalgia about. Min Min, Mythra, and other lowkey characters might as well be randomly generated to lots of people
Has anyone considered the fact that this game’s probably going to be bad? It’s a licensed game, after all.
this is gona be cyberpunk hype all over again , prepare your high expectation lol
I kinda get your point, but cyberpunk was hyped for literal years
Almost a literal decade
People are hyping this half ironically lol
Yea, I'm somehow both hyped ironically and unironically
I've seen people say it would kill Ult. unironically. It think it'll gain traction, sure, but it's not going to "kill" Ult. Even if it got big in the comp. scene, it'll go alongside it, it's not like tournies are restricted to one platform fighter only.
I do believe there is a subtke layer of irony behind anyone saying that even if it's convincing lol
I saw it with someone saying it'll kill Ult. because it has "actually hype characters compared to Smash".
Just shows that Smash fans will use anything, even a separate upcoming game, to shit on any character that isn't theirs.
I am partbof that majority myself
It might just be a Pokemon or Fire Emblem character too so no problem switching to NSAB
1v1, Squidward only, Zimm's Ship, no fairies.
Where was all this hype for the Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion? Lol
Eh, we might as well. We've got like four months to waste before the final character comes out, and when something this golden shows up... it's pretty much fate.
Why am I more exited to see if Zuko gets in a Nickelodeon smash game than the last fighter in the best selling fighting of all time…
At first I was hyped as a joke but now I’m actually super excited!
honestly this is a good thing. a distraction this large will be great when challenger 11 inevitably disappoints people.
I still don’t know what’s going on
