Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 appears to have experienced a delay extending beyond October, as several retailers have now updated the specified release date of the game to November 14th.
Although Ludosity and Fair Play Labs have never officially confirmed a release date for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2, retailers have consistently listed it as October 24th since its initial unveiling, which many considered to be the official launch date for the game. However, if that were true, it appears that the plan has now undergone some modifications.
As noted by Redditor White_Mantra on the All-Star Brawl subreddit, several retailers in America have changed the release date for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 from October 24th to November 14th, indicating a delay of just over two weeks. Among the retailers that have modified the date are GameStop, Target, and Best Buy, all of which are linked on the official website of the game.
The only retailer that has not changed the release date at present is Amazon, both in the United Kingdom and the United States, as their listing still indicates October 24th. Neither the old nor the new release date has ever been officially confirmed by Ludosity or Fair Play Labs. However, given that it comes from such reputable retailers, it is reasonable to consider it as official until proven otherwise.
Although it may initially seem disappointing to have to wait a bit longer to play Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2, it is important to remember how packed October already is with releases like Super Mario Bros. Wonder, Spider-Man 2, Assassin's Creed Mirage, and Alan Wake 2. By shifting All-Star Brawl 2 to a comparatively quieter month, its chances of shining in the spotlight are significantly increased.
A recent tweet from Fair Play Labs may even suggest a potential delay. A few days ago, they shared a meme featuring Filburt dressed as a fairy, with the caption "Don't rush the magic" directed towards those asking for a release date. Once again, neither Fair Play Labs nor Ludosity have announced an official release date for the game thus far. However, it is worth noting how many retailers have recently changed the listed date and slightly shifted the game's timeline.
For now, it is advisable to approach both the old and new release dates with caution and wait for an official announcement from the developers. According to the leaked cover artwork that surfaced a few weeks ago, there are still numerous new characters yet to be revealed, indicating that there is still much development to be done in the game.
