Garfield has been revealed as a DLC fighter for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. The lazy cat is slated to be released on December 9 for free.

Those familiar with Garfield probably won't be too surprised to hear that many of the cat's attacks in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl revolve around food. He's seen chowing down on a lasagna, throwing pie and striking with what appears to be a chicken or turkey drumstick.

While airborne, Garfield is shown hitting an opposing character by simply burping. It's currently unknown if there's some sort of mechanic behind this burp attack or if it's just a basic aerial move.

One scene has Garfield setting his toy bear, Pooky, on the ground. Whether it occurs manually or automatically, Pooky will eventually make a return trip back to Garfield, striking anyone in the way.

Another aerial has Garfield spinning, similar to how Mario's down aerial works in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Uniquely, this attack actually has multiple hitboxes and will continuously strike opponents. It's worth mentioning that most attacks in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl tend to be single hits.

Garfield's stage appears to be very similar to "Small Battlefield" in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. There are exactly two platforms floating over the main stage. Both the main stage and platforms are made of pizza, which is probably something that Garfield doesn't mind.

Despite Garfield's usual lazy mannerisms, he actually appears to be a fairly quick character in gameplay. Regardless, Garfield is a welcomed addition. Check out the trailer below:
