There may be a little hitch in NickelodeonAll-Star Brawl 2, the much awaited follow-up to the beloved first platform fighter, when it makes its way onto digital shelves.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 is shaping up to be a much more polished experience compared to the first game.

A few big-box stores, such as GameStop, Target, and Best Buy, have moved the scheduled release date from October 24 to November 14, which is a little more than two-week delay.

It’s not quite the October surprise that fans had hoped for, but this delay may turn out to be a godsend.

To be clear, the creative team behind this Nickelodeon-branded brawler, Ludosity and Fair Play Labs, have not formally announced a release date. But this seems like one of those “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” situations, given that some of the biggest companies in retail have changed their listings.Even though Amazon, which is known for being unconventional, is still showing October 24 as the release date, you have to wonder if Jeff Bezos’s massive company will finally follow the rules.

Although it would be easy to view this postponement as a mistake, it’s actually a cunning move to avoid an October schedule that was already overflowing with blockbuster releases. It’s true that major titles like Alan Wake 2, Spider-Man 2, Super Mario Bros. Wonder, and Assassin’s Creed Mirage are all coming out at the same period.

NASB 2 would have resembled a first-year student attempting to attend a senior prom; while you are welcome to go, you are not the center of attention. Even a subsequent tweet from Fair Play Labs appears to acknowledge the change in scheduling in a mysterious way. A meme featuring Filburt in a fairy costume issued a warning: “Don’t rush the magic.” Wise counsel given the current status of the gaming industry’s “crunch culture.”

With Super Smash Bros. MIA, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 could fill in a niche and establish itself as a viable alternative.

If confirmed, the game’s November release will only compete with two titles—Wario Ware, a reimagined Mario RPG, and Naruto x Boruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections—a somewhat more moderate foe that might even prove advantageous.

Nobody loves to wait, therefore we’re all drumming our fingers impatiently and devouring every bit of leaked cover art and character tidbit that surfaced. We’re in that strange waiting period when we’re relieved that the game won’t be overshadowed by the industry titans but yet disappointed because, well, we have to keep our fingers tapping for another two weeks. But let’s pull on our big kid pants and consider the wider picture: the game has more space to grow and more time for the developers to add more of that previously stated magic, which will give it a much higher chance of grabbing our whole attention.

Recall that the devs have not yet confirmed this, so we should all take this with a grain of salt. If these reports are accurate, though, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 is just what it needs—a brief pause before taking a big step forward and securing its rightful place in the spotlight. And without the weight of the looming shadows of industry titans, freshly revealed characters like El Tigre, Squidward, and Plankton can fight to their hearts’ content in that newfound spotlight.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2’s new release date gives it a chance to get most of the spotlight all to itself.

Therefore, let’s not rush the magic; wonderful things usually come to those who wait, especially in the gaming industry.
