Fighter speech and cross play has been confirmed for platform fighters Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.
Art Director Diego Hernández brought the good news to Veteran Super Smash Bros. Stream the player Hungrybox. Fans of the game have enjoyed the depth and potential of the Brawler’s core gameplay since its release in October, despite the lack of voices for the characters – including icons like SpongeBob, the Ninja Turtles, Nigel Dornbeere, and Garfield – was a sticking point for many.
There are no details on the exact scope of voice actors arriving or the voice actors involved, but this is very welcome news for the dedicated fan base that has grown around the game.
Hernández also confirmed the crossplay for all platforms, which should appear in the first quarter of 2022. There’s also one final free DLC character to be revealed shortly, and he said that more characters, levels, and features are being worked on – as paid DLC, presumably.
While this has not been officially confirmed as the reason, the budget just didn’t seem available to add voice acting before launch, but the game’s success apparently made the expansion possible for presumably all of the main fighters.

We really enjoyed the game when we checked it out At launch, he said it was “a solid platform fighter with an awful amount of hidden depth and also an unfortunate lack of polish outside of combat”. So it is very nice to see this polish applied in the updates in 2022.
