The newest Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl patch adds voice acting for playable characters, with the likes of Tom Kenny reprising his iconic role as SpongeBob SquarePants.
Produced by Ludosity and Fair Play Labs, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl launched late in 2021, offering up a Smash Bros.-like experience starring fan-favorite Nickelodeon characters.
The crossover fighting game allows players to assume the role of everyone from SpongeBob and Powdered Toast Man to Reptar and Helga Pataki of Hey Arnold fame.
Notably, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl’s forthcoming PS Plus release means even more players will soon get their hands on the platform fighter. The title’s most recent patch may draw in lapsed users, as well.
