Boasting fighters from SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Ren & Stimpy Show, and more, the starting roster of characters for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is stellar. But with the developer already teasing future reveals, we're already excited to learn which cartoons are coming to the brawler next.

Ever wonder which one of your favorite Nickelodeon characters would come out on top in a fight? Nickelodeon just announced a new Super Smash Bros-like fighting game, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl , which will give you a chance to see which cartoons are the ultimate fighters.

Of course, the popularity of the game will ultimately come down to the quality of the game -- balanced characters, serious mechanics, and a robust player base.
