Avatar fans think they’ve spotted Korra and Aang in Nickelodeon’s new brawler


GameMill announced the upcoming fighter, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl on Tuesday. The title is a 2D fighting game similar to Super Smash Bros. that features mascots from across popular Nickelodeon shows like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and SpongeBob SquarePants.

The announcement trailer featured a meaty list of competitors, but fans have been quick to investigate information about unannounced fighters on the roster. After searching, people on Twitter found box art for the Nintendo Switch version of the game that revealed that Korra, from Avatar: The Legend of Korra will likely be joining the fight.

Here’s why we think it’ll happen. For one, one post on Twitter was quick to point out an arena in the trailer looks inspired by Ba Sing Se from the Avatar universe. In addition to the course, there’s the box art that shows the silhouettes of what looks like Korra, the protagonist of The Legend of Korra and Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender. (Although it should be noted that Korra’s silhouette is much more distance and easier to make out than Aang’s.)

Among the other characters not shown in the announcement trailer that appeared on the cover — it looks like we’ll be getting CatDog and Ren & Stimpy. We don’t know if they’ll appear as separate fighters or as a Banjo-Kazooie style duo, but Ren & Stimpy would also make sense since Powdered Toast Man has already been confirmed and is from their show.

Beyond these possible characters, the game’s trailer confirmed a motley crew of Nickelodeon characters slated for the battle. We’ll be getting Lincoln Loud and Lucy from The Loud House, Powdered Toast Man from The Ren & Stimpy Show, Oblina from Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, Nigel Thornberry from The Wild Thornberrys, Helga from Hey Arnold!, Zim (Invader Zim), Reptar from Rugrats, and Danny Phantom from his self-titled show.

The game also features characters from long-lasting franchises like Michelangelo and Leonardo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and three characters from SpongeBob SquarePants: Sandy Cheeks, Patrick Star, and SpongeBob himself.

The game is scheduled to release sometime in fall 2021.
