Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl Release Date Seemingly Leaks

We already knew that Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, a Smash Bros-esque fighting game with characters from popular Nickelodeon shows, will be released on consoles this fall. But it appears that the release date is sooner than we expected if Nintendo's website is anything to go off of.

Heading to the Nintendo eShop, the Switch version for the upcoming fighting game notes that it will release on October 5 of this year. The listing also reveals the game's file size comes in at 2.9GB. IGN has reached out to a representative for the game and will update when we hear back.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is currently in development by Ludosity & Fair Play Labs. Alongside a Nintendo Switch version, the game will also launch on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One. The game was announced last July and features a well-rounded roster with characters from SpongeBob SquarePants, Hey Arnold, The Wild Thornberry's, and more. In recent months, new characters have been announced for the roster, including CatDog and April O'Neil.

While the release date has yet to be officially confirmed by the game's developer, October is looking to be stacked in terms of game releases. With many highly anticipated titles launching within the first two weeks. Some games in October include Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania, Far Cry 6, and Metroid Dread. Early October will also see the release of the Nintendo Switch OLED model.
