The zany roster for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 continues to take shape with the long-awaited confirmation of a true icon of 2000s animation: Jimmy Neutron. The gadget-loving boy genius joins the crossover fighting sequel with his unique arsenal of inventions, finally answering calls from nostalgic fans who were baffled by his absence in the original smash hit release.
Jimmy Neutron Revealed In New Gameplay Trailer
Dubbed a Defensive Zoner in All-Star Brawl 2, Jimmy utilises his endless supply of eccentric contraptions pulled straight from his movie and cult classic TV series. The new gameplay trailer unveils favourites like his laser-blasting Secret Watch, protective Super Bubblegum Mobile, and the Purple Flurp Rocket Launcher.
Jimmy can also tag in his robotic canine companion Goddard, directing the retro pup to attack foes while Jimmy hangs back. However, over-reliance on Goddard leaves Jimmy vulnerable, and his own recovery move seems rather slow compared to other animated contenders.
Nonetheless, devotees of The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius are simply elated to finally see the brains of the bunch in blazing multiplayer action. Jimmy fills a void fans struggled to reconcile after last year’s launch, joining his dad Hugh Neutron, who was later added to the original All-Star Brawl as post-release DLC. But followers never gave up hope that the iconic genius would eventually bring his eccentric brilliance to the arena.
Jimmy Joins Growing Roster Alongside SpongeBob and Squidward
Of course, the boy wonder joins an already outrageous list of newly confirmed Nicktoon brawlers. SpongeBob leads the charge once again alongside his grumpy neighbour Squidward and sinister boss Plankton. Potential leaked fighters like El Tigre and Danny Phantom villain Vlad Plasmius still remain unverified, but the scope of possibilities remains endless for Nickelodeon’s diverse cast of animated misfits and menaces.
GameMill Entertainment clearly understands the sheer demand to include figures etched into the childhoods of millennial and Gen Z gamers in the early 2000s. Jimmy Neutron’s inventions epitomise the innovative spirit of the era, and his oddball gadgets should translate into a uniquely chaotic moveset. Some may have written him off after his absence from the original, but unlocking Jimmy’s true scientific potential was always meant to be the sequel’s destiny.
When Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 eventually drops on all major platforms, players of all ages will revel in the nostalgia, creativity, and pure fun that only this colossal crossover can deliver. Seeing the shining brains of Retroville finally join the ruckus exemplifies the love letter that this game represents to Nickelodeon’s golden age. Win or lose, one thing’s for sure – Jimmy Neutron will certainly give new meaning to brain over brawn.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 is in development for the Windows PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
