The existence of Nickelodeon, in a roundabout sort of way, taught me how timezones worked growing up. My digital cable box got both regular Nickelodeon and “Nick West,” which was literally just Nickelodeon’s airing schedule from the west coast. Bit of an odd thing to get its own dedicated channel, but I guess it just went to show how dedicated Nick was to providing as much service as possible to as many people as possible. Now that the Nicktoons have taken the form of a fighting game, it’s fair to wonder if that service has extended to this neck of the woods. So, is Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl crossplay?
Is Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl Crossplay?
Unfortunately, the answer to the question is a rather resolute “nope.” While Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam, there is no crossplay support between any of these platforms. While you can play online on any of these platforms, each online ecosystem is entirely isolated, so if you want to play with friends, you both need to own the same version of the game.
It’s unfortunate to be sure, especially considering the hype this game was drumming up, but do bear in mind that this is the first major project that Ludosity has ever released. Their previous game, Slap City, another Smash-like fighting game, was an entirely indie, self-developed and funded project, so they’re still a bit new to the mainstream release scene. That said, nothing is impossible. Ludosity has said that their first priority is the stability of the game, so once they’re sure the game hasn’t collapsed in on itself after release, and assuming the game does well for itself, we could see some substantial feature updates later down the line.
