Cartoon All-Star Rumble is a crossover fighting game currently in development by Sactown Studios, and the first installment in the Cartoon All-Star franchise. As the name implies, the game is a crossover of many forms of animation, with characters being pulled from cartoons, anime, movies, and many more different types of animation. The game is intended to be a tribute to the legendary cartoons and anime represented in the game. Characters from many different companies such as Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Hasbro appear alongside series that wouldn't be represented in a typical fighting game, such as Arthur, the Magic School Bus, and many other franchises. The game is exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.
Cartoon All-Star Rumble plays in a very similar way to the Super Smash Bros. Series. The point of the game to knock your rival off of the stage. When the battle starts all characters start out at 0% damage. Depending on the type of attacks executed, damage will increase at the bottom of the screen. Usually when a character gets up to 100% or higher they can be knocked off of the stage or can be sent flying in the air for a "Rocket K.O.". The highest percent of damage a character can get up to is 999% where then the character is the easiest to knock off of the stage. All characters have four special attacks that can be used against other opponents on the stage. Players need to complete specific objectives in order to receive more extras.

Arcade is a mode similar to ones found in the Super Smash Bros, and the Street Fighter franchises. The goal of the mode is to face various opponents before reaching the boss at the end of the mode. The boss of the Arcade mode in Cartoon All-Star Melee, The Cartoonist has returned with new attacks, and weapons. In addition, he is now joined by a female counterpart, known only as The Mangaka, whose attacks are based off of various techniques that are found in manga and anime, similar to how The Cartoonist uses attacks that are based off of various techniques found in cartoons and comic books.
