The first DLC fighters for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 have been revealed ahead of the game’s launch in just a week on Nov. 7.
The fighters are: Mr. Krabs from SpongeBob, Rocksteady from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and both Zuko and his uncle Iroh from Avatar: The Last Airbender. Revealed earlier on Tuesday via X/Twitter, the official account for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 said, “Mr. Krabs, Zuko, Rocksteady, and Iroh are joining Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 as our first DLC characters in 2024! Watch out for more news on Mr. Krabs coming early next year!”

It also confirmed the addition of a new roguelite story campaign, in addition to a trailer. You can watch it below:
This initial roster of DLC characters confirms a long-standing leak that first popped up on Reddit earlier this year which mentioned all four of these characters as Brawl 2’s forthcoming DLC fighters. The leak was initially pretty controversial considering the base game’s roster already has pretty solid representation for SpongeBob, Avatar, and TMNT with four, three, and three characters respectively from those series already making an appearance in the base game.
Fans shouldn’t be too concerned about some of their other favorites not making it in, however. Based on the wording of the post itself, it sounds like there may be more DLC characters on the way after the first wave hits sometime next year.
All-Star Brawl is published by GameMill Entertainment, which made some less-flattering headlines lately thanks to Skull Island: Rise of Kong’s extremely poor fan and critical reception. It’s also come into the spotlight for some questionable work practices, including only giving its developers a year to make the entire game from scratch. You can read all about that debacle in Ash Parrish’s report for The Verge.
