An update for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl has gone live today that introduces a few things that fans will surely be excited about. For the first time, players will be able to deck their favorite characters out in alternate costumes after downloading the latest patch — and they'll be able to do so free of charge.

This latest update also adds in several balance changes for a handful of contenders, as well as some general quality of life fixes. A full set of patch notes was released and you can view them after the jump.

"The latest patch for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is now live on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox and will be coming soon to Switch!," wrote the game's official Twitter account. "Here are the patch notes. #NickBrawl"

Among those who received balance changes are Korra, Helga, Leonardo, Lucy Loud, April O'Neil, Oblina, Toph, Zim, and Nigel Thornberry. From what we can see, many of these characters listed here received buffs that include better knockback on certain attacks, faster start up, and more active frames.

Outside of character alterations, general fixes were made to make for a smoother experience. An issue that caused some matches to suffer from frame drops has been corrected, and D-Pads not working properly on Xbox, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 have also been fixed.

This patch also brings alternate costumes into the fold, with every character on the roster getting one new look. These new threads are all free to download.

A full trailer showcasing these outfits was released, which is constructed in a slick 90's infomercial format. The game's official Twitter page also granted a closer look at a handful of costumes in particular, including the retro Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and April O'Neil, as well as Toph's variation.
