Multiversus, a Warner Bros Super Smash Competitor
Another player has entered the ring! Warner Bros just announced that they will be partnering with Player First Games to release a platform-style fighter game sometime in 2022. Play standard modes such as 1v1, 2v2, and a 4-player free for all. Additionally, this game will be cross-platform, so you can play with your friends no matter the console, and play online together!
Warner Bros has already released its initial Roster List, but it seems as though we can expect a lot more players to be added as the game development progresses further. However, we already have an extensive range of characters coming from many parts of the Warner Bros Universe. While it's exciting to see all of these characters in action, it does seem a little strange to see Bugs Bunny in the same arena as Batman?
- Iron Giant
- Arya Stark
- Bugs Bunny
- Finn the Human
- Harley Quinn
- Jake the Dog
- Steven Universe
- Tom & Jerry
- Wonder Woman
What's really interesting is that there are some big names behind the voice acting, such as Maisie Williams, Kate Mucucci, and Kevin Conroy.
Is Multiversus coming to Nintendo Switch?
No date has been announced for this game to be ported to Nintendo Switch at this point in time.
While the Alpha has closed for testing, the Beta opens up in July 2022 which implies we will have some more details in a couple of months.
