The developers behind Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl have officially released a new balance patch for the game on Steam. 

Unlike the previous patch, which was mainly focused on removing broken mechanics and improving general gameplay, this is a more traditional set of patch notes. Dash dancing was added into the game, along with working to better balance 12 different fighters. 

Michelangelo and Patrick are among those fighters that have received sizable changes, with Mikey being nerfed so his neutral air isn’t “dumb” anymore and Patrick getting super armor on his command input. Additionally, powerful moves for Lucy Loud, Danny Phantom, and Ren & Stimpy have had their down specials nerfed to keep them from killing at very low percentages. 

Here is the full list of patch notes for the PC version of NASB, with no current timeline on when it will be available on consoles. You can also read extended thoughts from the developer about this specific patch on the official Steam page for the game.
