Fans of Nickelodeon cartoons will have much to look forward to with Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2, coming out in 2023. Many classic characters from the older Nickelodeon cartoons will be playable or make some sort of appearance in the sequel. But while many Nick Toons will be featured, some older cartoon fans will be excited to see some love being shown to the heroes in a half shell. Fan favorite hothead Raphael stars in his own new trailer as the newest playable member of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The turtle with the red bandana gets his own character spotlight trailer ahead of the game’s release. In the trailer, Raphael is seen using his ninja skills against a variety of characters, with a lot of close-quarters combat being a major focus. Like his personality, Raphael is a brute force type of character that looks to have a big emphasis on air combos using his dual Sai. He can also throw shuriken against opponents when trying to close distance or stifle an opponent he’s facing.
But like in the many shows and movies we’ve seen, his temper is also a major weakness, which is reflected in the way Raphael is played. He may be the fastest character in the game according to Game Mill Entertainment, but he’s also one of the lightest. Raphael can be easily juggled and knocked back if caught with a big attack. Like his brothers who will also appear in the game, Raphael will have a variety of moves that mirror his ninja training from the TMNT classic cartoon, as well as a few taunts that show his rude but cool attitude.
The alternate outfits for Raphael in the trailer appear to be nods to the classic TMNT comic, as well as a funky outfit that may be based on one of the classic turtle toys. The black & white comic book style Raphael is a direct reference to the classic Eastman and Laird comics that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles first appeared in, only with a red headband in color. For TMNT fans, this will round off the group in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2. You’ll be able to gather your friends and bring some shellshock with Raphael and the bros when the game comes out later in 2023.
