Recent online rumblings suggest that new information regarding additional content for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 has made its way to the public eye. A Twitter post by a user under the name Treydemarked has unveiled what seems to be assets from the anticipated DLC. These images and gameplay videos hint at Mr. Krabs joining the fray with a full move set, complemented by new alternate costumes for him as well as Zuko, Iroh, and Rocksteady.

Game enthusiasts have been keeping close tabs on official announcements, and last year, it was indeed acknowledged by the developers on Twitter that Mr. Krabs, along with other characters, would be joining the game’s lineup as part of a DLC scheduled for 2024. A specific date for the release was left out of the announcement; however, an optimistic mention was made regarding more updates to come about Mr. Krabs early in the new year.

The recent revelations from Treydemarked suggest that Mr. Krabs, may have been unintentionally exposed as a completely playable character in an updated version of the game—an assertion that aligns with the developers' previous hints towards his imminent arrival. The leaked material also gives prospective players a sneak peek into the kind of role Mr. Krabs could play once he's officially launched.

One notable glimpse into the attention to detail that the developers are renowned for is a nod to an unforgettable moment from the SpongeBob series, involving a dolphin noise used to mask less kid-friendly language. Those devoted to Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender will be delighted by the inclusion of Zuko’s Blue Spirit alternate costume, a significant plot element in the series. For Rocksteady, perhaps the standout feature is the reveal of a robotic version, though his Foot Clan jacket and other alternate skins also maintain a strong allure.

The authenticity of these leaks remains unverified, but given that extensive 30-minute gameplay footage was mistakenly released last October, there's a possibility that this new batch of leaks holds water.

Despite not clinching the title for Best Fighting Game at The Game Awards 2023, where it was a contender but saw Street Fighter take the honor, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 continues to cultivate a dedicated player base. Current and future fans of the game have much to look forward to with these exciting DLC additions poised to enrich the brawl experience.
