Iconic ’90s animated characters Ren and Stimpy are making a well-deserved return — this time teaming up as a single, combined character in the upcoming Nickelodeon-themed fighter.
“Ren and Stimpy are definitely on the classic side of the character spectrum,” developer Ludosity project manager, Joel Nystrom, said via a post playstation blog. “I’m a ’90s kid and I loved The Rain and Stimpy Show growing up. They were so refreshingly dirty and upset compared to everything else at the time.”

“They have a knack for using each other as weapons, which really helps bring the show’s slapstick comedy to life,” said designer Mattias R. Singer.
Apparently, Ren rides on Stimpy’s shoulders, making him slower than the other characters. However, they are capable of attacking in multiple directions at once. “Ren deals low initial damage and Stimpy deals high, but delays damage,” Nyström said.
Nicktoon fans will also be delighted to see the return of some fan favorites like the iconic Happy Happy Joy Joy song.
“The log from the Blamo ad is so iconic that we can’t imagine including it as a special move,” Singer said. “The song ‘Happy Happy Joy Joy’ was similarly used as a reference to Strong Up Air.”
“Each of Ren & Stimpy’s moves is inspired by a particular scene from the show, but we’ll leave it up to the players to find all the context.”
