Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl's developers have recently confirmed more of the upcoming game's mechanics and features on release. This platform fighter is confirmed to also have its own version of Z-dropping, Shine, projectile mechanics and other gameplay mechanics. Meanwhile, the game is also confirmed to have low level AI which many casual fans can enjoy.
Z-Dropping and Projectile Mechanics
As seen on Thaddeus Crews' confirmations on the official Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl Discord channel, players actually have a way to Z-Drop while holding projectiles in the game. In Super Smash Bros. Z-Dropping occurs when players hold a projectile in mid-air and drop it immediately. When the projectile is dropped a fast window opens up for players to immediately attack and pick up their projectile again for another hit. For some characters, Z-Dropping opens up new combo routes which could not be possible before.
The developers also developed Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl's projectiles to reset its power level back to level 1 if they're used for Z-dropping and not hit any foes. More than Z-dropping, developers have confirmed that players can combo their own projectile to charge up to its max level and grab it if they're fast enough. However, players may need a large opening to execute this fast maneuver as it can still be lengthy to do near foes.
Meanwhile, expectant fans have been observant on some of the promotional pictures of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl on Steam and found out a familiar move on one of this game's characters. Apparently, fans have found a Shine move on Ren and Stimpy's Powdered Toast Man and the developers were happy to confirm that it was indeed a shine move. In the Super Smash Bros. series, Shine was the Fox's reflector move in Melee which granted the character oppressive offensive and defensive pressure if their players were fast enough.
While the Shine move was confirmed for Powdered Toast Man, we'll have to wait how strong will his version of move will be in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.
Low Level AI
Meanwhile, the developers have also confirmed that the CPU AI may be dumb on release in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. Even at high difficulties, the AI may not stack up to most players and make poor decisions more as they fight the players in the game. Players have no need to be afraid for AIs styling on the players if the developer representative Crews prove true. In Super Smash Bros Ultimate, some AIs may execute difficult, frame perfect combos which will take some unsuspecting players to school first before sending them to the blastzone.
