The official Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl Twitter page has officially revealed that Shredder, the main villain of the TMNT universe, will be joining the roster as free DLC starting today. The second one is to be added following Garfield in December. IGN provided a deeper look into the character’s moves, abilities, origins, and play style in the overview video released after the announcement, with the focus on his claws, including swipes, stabs, and flying through the air to attack opponents with sharp, precise moves.

In addition to the Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl team adding Shredder as a playable character, a brand new stage based on the set from the classic Nickelodeon game show Double Dare was added with him, adding to the steady stream of updates the development team promised to the game last October. One of the first among these was the addition of alternate costumes for various fighters for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, many more of which are expected following Shredder’s reveal. Another upcoming update by the developer, the addition of voice acting and cross-play compatibility, was also recently reconfirmed by the developer.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl adding Shredder to the roster as DLC had been previously alluded to following a leak back in December after the official reveals of Garfield.
