An Xbox splash screen for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl shows the master earthbender alongside the rest of the cast.
Another character from Avatar joins the fray in Nick Brawl — this time in the form of earthbending prodigy Toph Beifong. Toph therefore joins both Aang and Korra as the three Avatar series representatives.
A splash screen on the game’s Xbox Store page accidentally revealed her today as part of the cast in Nickelodeon’s upcoming Super Smash Bros. style fighting game. The official Nick Brawl Twitter account has yet to say anything about Toph’s arrival at the time of writing.
Rock and Stone
In the Avatar universe, Toph Beifong is one of the most powerful earthbenders to ever live. Despite being born totally blind, she learned how to see through earthbending, as an “extension of her senses”. By feeling vibrations in the ground beneath her feet, she is able to overcome her disability in both everyday living and in combat.
While there isn’t any gameplay footage of Toph as of yet, her earthbending prowess should make her an exciting character for anyone to pick up in the game.
Additionally, the splash screen includes GIR, the excitable and skittish robot assistant of Zim from Invader Zim. Within the show, GIR, short for “G Information Retrieval Unit”, boasts of the sterotypical cartoon robot abilities and weapons. He can shoot lasers from his eyes and fly using the jets built into his feet. GIR also has a vast amount of storage space inside his head, which contains various weapons and other more interesting objects like rubber pigs.
This means that there is now a total of two representatives from the early to mid 2000s show within the game so far. Whether or not others like Zim’s archnemesis Dib Membrane will also be included has yet to be seen.
Either way, we can expect Nickelodeon to release official reveal trailers for both of these characters soon. This was the case for others like April O’Neal from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, after all.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl arrives on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Nintendo Switch, and PC on October 5th, 2021.
