Iconic Nickelodeon cartoon characters Norbert and Daggett Beaver from The Angry Beavers are being added to the roster of the crossover fighting game Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2, publishers GameMill Entertainment announced. The mischievous beaver brothers will have a unique tag team fighting style, able to swap places and assist each other during combat.
As seen in the reveal trailer, Norbert and Daggett utilise their unpredictable duo dynamics for the game’s frantic platform brawling. The two can call each other in to help with attacks and replace one another on the battlefield as desired. This cooperative play mechanic provides a fresh style compared to other characters on the eclectic All-Star Brawl 2 lineup.
Angry Beavers NASB2 Rveal Trailer
The Angry Beavers animated series ran for four seasons and over 60 episodes on Nickelodeon between 1997 and 2003. The show centered around Norbert and Daggett, two bachelor beavers living on their own after leaving their parents’ dam. Plots often involved the impulsive animals interacting with various creatures of the forest, leading to zany adventures.
One notable improvement in All-Star Brawl 2 compared to its predecessor is the inclusion of full voice acting at launch. The original game was criticised for lacking the iconic character voices fans loved. For Norbert and Daggett, Nick Bakay and Richard Steven Horvitz seem to be reprising their roles, bringing authenticity. Horvitz even shared the trailer on his Twitter.
Cult Favourite Series Joins Iconic Nicktoons Lineup
The beavers join a robust cast of Nicktoons, including Jimmy Neutron, SpongeBob, Patrick, Plankton and more. With its massive crossover premise, the addition of the cult favourite The Angry Beavers is sure to please fans eager to pit the most chaotic Nick characters against each other.
Norbert and Dagget bring unique comedic energy to the arena. As unhinged balls of fur instead of the expected cartoon mascot brawlers, they stand out from the crowd. The beavers’ symbiotic fighting style also adds a new mechanic to the game beyond standard 1v1 combat.
By harnessing the humour and relationship of the iconic duo, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 becomes even more appealing to fans of the network’s diverse history. The game celebrates the full legacy of Nickelodeon, not just its most popular series. Obscure characters like Norbert and Daggett get their deserved time to shine.
The zany forest mammals will feel right at home trading blows with the rest of the franchise’s weird and wild personalities. With Creator Butch Hartman consulting on the game, the toon title aims to be a loving tribute to Nick’s legacy, and Norbert and Daggett are a perfect encapsulation of the network’s off-beat identity. Their inclusion adds worthwhile variety to the gameplay and tone.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 launches November 3rd for the Windows PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
