Although Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl garnered a surprising degree of hype and attention before it came out, that buzz mostly died down soon after its launch. Opinions varied wildly on the game, but one common criticism had to do with the title’s voice acting — or lack thereof. Even though the game’s limited budget made the absence of such a feature understandable, that did not prevent players from feeling weirded out by it. For many, seeing these beloved characters from their childhood fail even to let out a grunt, let alone a whole phrase, sucked the soul out of the game entirely. Fortunately, developer Ludosity has finally addressed this issue, as it just released a free patch for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl that incorporates voice acting.

Alongside this announcement, the official Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl Twitter account unveiled a list of voice actors that provided their talent to this new patch. The developers managed to include several of the original voice actors for these iconic characters, although they understandably could not get everyone on board. Even just listening to a short clip of the new patch provides a stark contrast to what came before. The new voices do a lot to fill in the previously vacant soundscape.

 

What else does the patch include?

In addition to the new voices, the patch implements several Smash Bros.-esque items that promise to add some much-needed variety to the core gameplay. Before the patch, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl arguably focused a little too much on catering to competitive players. The addition of items should appeal to casual players who enjoy platform fighters more for their chaos rather than their mechanical depth.

Whether or not this new voice acting patch will revive the hype that Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl used to enjoy remains to be seen. But even if it doesn’t, at least players will be at least a little more likely to enjoy the game.
