Garfield and lasagna are coming to Nickelodeon All-Stars Brawl

After a bit of waiting, the first add-on character is arriving on Nickelodeon’s Smash Bros.-like fighting game Nickelodeon All-Stars Brawl. That character is Garfield, the lasagna-loving (and now meme-ified) cat, who will be added on December 9 as free additional content for the game.

Nickelodeon All-Stars Brawl is a platform fighter starring classic to modern Nicktoons characters like SpongeBob SquarePants, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Danny Phantom, and more. Garfield is the latest addition to the roster and will be followed by many more, according to the game’s developer, Ludosity.

Garfield comes as no surprise to many players and followers of the fighting games. For quite some time now, there have been data miners searching for potential DLC characters set to join the fray. One of the earliest characters found in the game’s code was Garfield, who comes with his own Pokémon stadium-esque stage with a lasagna twist.

If the miners are anything to go by, Garfield will soon be joined by characters like Cindy Vortex from Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, Ninja Turtles’ adversary Shredder, and Rocko from Rocko’s Modern Life.

While the game has quite a bit of life ahead of it and has been successful with competitive players already, it’s yet to be seen if there will be any additional gameplay mode content or even voice acting added later on to keep things fresh.

You can get Nickelodeon All-Stars Brawl right now on Steam, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and the Nintendo Switch. Garfield will be hitting each version of the game for free on Thursday, December 9.

Mortal Kombat 12 is coming out this year, according to Warner Bros.

While Mortal Kombat and Injustice developer NetherRealm Studios has been secretive about what its next game is, Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav spoiled the surprise during the company's latest earnings call: it's Mortal Kombat 12, and it's coming out this year.
Speaking about WB Games' upcoming lineup, Zaslav stated that the "highly anticipated Mortal Kombat 12" is in the works alongside Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which was featured in a State of Play showcase that took place around the same time. Zaslav says Mortal Kombat 12 is "set for release this year" and that Warner Bros. Discovery has "ambitious launch projections" for this title.
Digital Trends contacted WB Games to confirm the statement and will update this article when we hear back.
Obviously, as this is the first time the game has been mentioned, we don't know any specific details about the story, gameplay, or characters that will be featured in the new entry. Still, it's quite an exciting confirmation for fighting game fans as NetherRealm Studios hasn't released a new game since 2019's Mortal Kombat 11, which itself has not received any new DLC since 2021. The Chicago-based developer had been flip-flopping between making Mortal Kombat and Injustice games throughout the 2010s, but its focus appears to be wholly on Mortal Kombat now. 
If Mortal Kombat 12 is truly coming out this year, we shouldn't have to wait too much longer for an official reveal. Still, this is an unexpected way for such a game to be revealed. Mortal Kombat 12 is in development and intended for release sometime in 2023.
