IGN can exclusively reveal that Shredder, the ultimate bad guy of the TMNT universe, is being added as a new playable fighter in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl starting today. Get a first look at him in action in the reveal trailer above, and then watch the deeper-dive gameplay showcase narrated by Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl environment artist/lighting artist Hans Stein further down this page.
The metal-clad menace of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael isn’t the only new thing in the latest All-Star Brawl update. As you can see in the Shredder screenshots immediately below, the set from the classic Nickelodeon game show Double Dare is also being added as a fighting stage.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl unites a slew of characters from across the kids’ network universe into this family-friendly four-player fighter, including cast members from Rugrats, SpongeBob, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and more.
IGN called All-Star Brawl “a very respectable platform fighter that serves as a fun, though far less polished and less fully featured alternative to its competition” in our review, adding that “the characters and stages feel soulless without the iconic Nickelodeon voice acting and music of its source shows, but All-Star Brawl lands its hits where it matters the most: in the fights themselves.”
