The latest, fast paced platform brawler Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is gearing up for another balance update. While we'd typically be left wondering what we might be seeing when the next patch rolls around, the game's character designer and programmer, Thaddeus Crews, has been vocal about the next update on Twitter.

This patch puts a focus on hitbox changes, as Thaddeus previously mentioned, but we now know that only a handful were tweaked. We also get some insight into how integral these changes are to overall game balance.

"Hmm, seems like not all the stuff I was planning/making will make it into this patch wave, which is a bit of a bummer," Thaddeus begins in a tweet. The developer goes on to divulge what types of things are confirmed for the next patch.

"For sure there's gonna be updated hurtboxes, new 2D calculations, initial dash boosts & some hitbox adjustments in the upcoming patch at the least," Crews explains.

Earlier this week, Crews took to Twitter to ask for the assistance of the players. Fans were prompted to submit the really egregious examples of hitboxes that didn't line up with the visual of the attack properly, as this is what Thaddeus aimed to fix most for this upcoming update.

Following the tweets about the update, Thaddeus went on to explain the correlation between hitboxes and direct balance. It is because these changes affect balance so much that only a handful were made this time around.

We're not sure when the next update for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is scheduled to release, but now we have a good idea of what's coming when it does.
