MultiVersus: Warner’s Super Smash Bros. Clone Gets A Cinematic Video [VIDEO]

From Player First Games, we get to see Batman, Wonder Woman, Arya Stark, Iron Giant, Bugs Bunny, Taz, Shaggy, Velma, Tom and Jerry.

 

So there are quite a few franchises represented in this trailer, from characters from the DC Comics universe, Game of Thrones and Looney Tunes to Scooby-Doo and Tom and Jerry. Since Warner Bros. Discovery, the owner of publisher Warner Bros. Games, has a lot of IP, it’s an excellent idea to make a game similar to Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros.

MultiVersus is running a closed alpha test from May 19 to May 27. It will be available on all platforms with full crossplay support, and the dedicated servers will also provide rollback netcode so that everyone sees the same thing (and those who are in a “hurry” will have their actions “rewound” and those who are lagging will have their actions “spun forward”). There will also be an open beta that will arrive sometime in July.

Here’s the game’s official overview: “MultiVersus will be a free-to-play, 2v2 platform fighter that combines “an ever-expanding cast of iconic characters and legendary universes.” It will feature full crossplay support (cross-progression), dedicated server-based rollback netcode, and “content-filled seasons.” The game’s website has the pre-registration open.

Here’s Warner’s overview of the game: “MultiVersus will showcase a variety of beloved heroes and personalities to team up with or compete against in epic battles, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn (DC Super Heroes & DC Super-Villains); Shaggy (Scooby-Doo); Bugs Bunny (Looney Tunes); Arya Stark (Game of Thrones); Tom and Jerry (Tom and Jerry); Jake the Dog and Finn the Human (Adventure Time); Steven Universe and Garnet (Steven Universe); an extraordinary original creature named Reindog; and many more to come.

Featuring matches with a strong emphasis on online cooperative gameplay, every fighter will be outfitted with a deep set of combat mechanics that distinguish the game’s fresh take on two-versus-two gameplay. It allows combatants to boast customizable movesets that combine dynamically with other characters as they battle for supremacy. From Wonder Woman and her Lasso of Truth attack being unexpectedly paired with Shaggy and his sandwich projectile to Arya Stark’s face-swapping ability to complement Superman’s laser vision, the impossible can become impossible through surprising team combinations and matchups. The game’s fun-filled multiplayer bouts can be set against the backdrop of various reimagined environments from awe-inspiring worlds, such as Batman’s Batcave, Jake and Finn’s Tree Fort and many others. MultiVersus will also include intense one-versus-one clashes and a four-player free-for-all mode where only one fighter can come out on top.

Additionally, MultiVersus will feature an all-star cast of talent lending their voices to the game, including Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series, Batman: Arkham series) as Batman, George Newbern (Justice League vs The Fatal Five, Injustice 2) as Superman, Abby Trott (Carmen Sandiego) as Wonder Woman, Tara Strong (Batman Ninja, Batman: Arkham series) as Harley Quinn, Matthew Lillard (Scooby-Doo) as Shaggy, Eric Bauza (Looney Tunes cartoons) as Bugs Bunny and Tom and Jerry, Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) as Arya Stark, John DiMaggio (Adventure Time) as Jake the Dog, Jeremy Shada (Adventure Time) as Finn the Human, Daniel DiVenere (Spirit Riding Free) as Steven Universe, Estelle (Steven Universe) as Garnet and Andrew Frankel (Jellystone) as Reindog,” Warner wrote.”

MultiVersus will launch this year on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
