Garfield Is Coming To Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl In Free DLC

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is a lot like Nintendo’s Smash Bros but for one very key difference: it doesn’t seem like All-Star Brawl can keep a secret to save its life. Last week, developer Ludosity teased a free DLC character announcement without necessarily saying who it would be, but then a Ludosity dev changed his Twitter avatar to be Garfield.

Garfield got his start as a Saturday paper comic strip before hitting television as a cartoon in the ‘80s. Viacom purchased the rights to Garfield in 2019, and Viacom owns Nickelodeon, thus we get Garfield as a playable character in All-Star Brawl.

Today's character announcement shows a far more lively animal than Garfield fans might be used to. The lasagna-eating, Monday-hating cat jumps, kicks, punches, throws pies, and attacks with a rolled-up newspaper despite being portrayed as a laconic fat cat in pretty much all previous media.

Garfield will arrive in All-Star Brawl on Thursday, December 9 as the game’s first DLC character. The second character is likely to be Shredder, which was revealed in a data mine. So far Ludosity hasn’t made any announcements one way or another, but Garfield confirms one aspect of that data mine, so we’re pretty confident that Shredder is coming as the game’s second DLC.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl launched back in October as a brawler to compete with the likes of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Featuring classic Nickelodeon characters like Ren & Stimpy, Toph from Avatar the Last Airbender, and Sponge Bob Square Pants, All-Star Brawl had a bit of a "rough launch" but Ludosity remains committed to making the game a worthy successor to Smash Ultimate’s crown.
