Garfield Is Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl’s First DLC Character

Get that lasagne in the oven, because Garfield is making his way into Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.

Everyone’s here! OK, not quite, but everyone’s favourite lazy, lasagne loving cat is at least. Garfield is the first DLC character to join Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl’s ranks, making him the 21st character in the roster.

The grumpy feline was expected by fans pretty much since launch. Dataminers found unfinished files related to him in the PC version of the game, so it was only a matter of time before he was added. And when Thaddeus Crews, a member of the team at Ludosity, developers of the game, teased Garfield’s arrival on December 3, it was set in stone.

Garfield’s moves seem to include slamming his teddy bear Pooky, throwing pies, and whacking people with a chicken leg. There is also, of course, a move involving eating lasagne, because it wouldn’t be Garfield otherwise.

In the brief gameplay trailer we’ve been shown, it looks like he’ll be a lot of fun to play. He doesn’t seem to have much range, so hopefully his moveset will be suited to close combat. And he’s also not being voiced by Chris Pratt.

The monday-hating cat is the first of what will be two free DLC characters. Ludosity have previously said there will be two free DLC characters, and a few paid ones, all of which have yet to be revealed. Garfield is releasing on Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation on December 12. He’ll be coming to Nintendo Switch later, on December 21.
