Ren & Stimpy Join Smash Bros.-Like Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl

By | September 14, 2021

The iconic Ren & Stimpy are joining the roster of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, the upcoming platform-fighting game that takes definite inspiration from Super Smash Bros.

Similar to Ice Climbers, Duck Hunt, and Banjo & Kazooie from Nintendo’s fighter, Ren and Stimpy will play as a single character in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.

As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, the developers say Ren and Stimpy, “have a knack for using each other as weapons, which really helps the slapstick comedy of the show come to life.”

Each move is inspired by a scene from the TV show, including throwing a bouncing log, the ‘Happy Happy Joy Joy’ song, and more. During movement, Ren rides on Stimpy’s shoulders, which slows the duo down. To make up for that, they can often both attack at once, dealing higher total damage than other fighters on the roster.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl takes characters from all eras of Nick, and Ren and Stimpy definitely fit in with some of the other classic selections. The show had five seasons, airing from 1991-1995. Ren and Stimpy join a roster that includes characters from SpongeBob, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, CatDog, Danny Phantom, and more.
