About

Multiversus is an upcoming, free-to-play platform fighting game announced by Warner Brothers that will feature characters from a wide range of Warner Brothers IP, including Scooby Doo, Game of Thrones, Looney Toons and others. The game has drawn comparisons to Super Smash Brothers and Nickelodeon All-star Brawl.

History

On October 22nd, 2021, Redditor hugeleakeractually posted to /r/gamingleaksandrumors[1] a rumor that developers Netherrealm were working on a fighting game that featured Warner Brothers characters as fighters. The poster relayed that the idea for the fighter came from the Ultra Instinct Shaggy meme, though that is unconfirmed by Warner Brothers (however, it seems Shaggy's moveset in the game is inspired by the meme). On October 24th, Twitter user Jeff Grubb confirmed the rumor in a tweet but clarified Netherrealm was not working on the project.[2]


Jeff Grubb ... @JeffGrubb This WB platform fighter is real, but it is not a Netherrealm game. Come on. reddit.com LTIVERS Netherrealm Leak Got info on the new Netherrealm game. Obviously a burner account. Not gonna provide and proof to the mods or . 1:26 PM · Oct 24, 2021 · Twitter for Android

On November 18th, 2021, after several weeks of rumors and leaks, the WB fighting game, a platform fighter called Multiversus, was announced in a presentation by Tony Huynh, the co-founder of Player First Games and the game's director. Huynh explained that Multiversus will be a 2 vs. 2-focused platform fighter with 1 vs. 1 matches available. The game will be free-to-play and have dedicated servers for online play. Members of the cast will be voiced by their usual voice actors, meaning Tara Strong will voice Harley Quinn, Maisie Williams will voice Arya Stark, etc. The game is planned to launch in 2022. It will be free to play, with new characters and skins planned to be added and cost money.



Online Presence

The announcement inspired enthusiasm amongst fans of fighting games, particularly those who felt let down by the similar recent platform fighter Nickelodeon All-star Brawl. Many interpreted features advertised in the announcement, such as voice acting and dedicated servers, as a shot at All-star Brawl, which features no voice acting (examples shown below).[3][4]

The fact that Multiversus looks good with proper voice acting, costumes, dedicated servers etc just goes to show how much Viacom kneecapped NASB by just refusing to give it a proper budget.

Pro Smash player ESAM posted a reaction video to the trailer shortly after it came out, expressing his excitement for the game (shown below, left). YouTuber Caboose also posted a reaction, praising the game for having dedicated servers and voice acting (shown below, right).

I never thought I'd see the day a crossover between Steven Universe and Game of Thrones became a real thing; many of the other combinations possible here, such as between CN and DC, feel much less novel as they've been done before, but the presence of GoT alongside them particularly stands out and shows that they're definitely serious about utilizing potentially anything they have rights to without fear to use really intense stuff.
