There are many changes to Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl’s roster in terms of their moves and some alterations to the stages. Here are a few highlights:
- The default stock count is now four.
- Airdashing now has a two-frame warm-up before your character starts moving. The warmup is also skipped when you hit the ground.
- Harmonic Convergence’s upper section is now “completely” flat
- Sandy Light Mid attacks have drastically been changed, such as the increased launch angle from 15 degrees to 36 and the knockback has been increased from 10 to 25 for the first light mid-attack.
- Sandy’s lasso has been fixed as follow-ups can be buffered.
- Nigel Thornberry’s Aerial Light Mid has decreased damage but improved knockback.
You can view the full patch notes on Brawl’s Twitter.
With more competition just around the corner, it makes sense that GameMill Entertainment would want to add these features. It has also confirmed a new paid season with Jenny, Hugh Neutron, and Rocko as DLC.
