Multiversus is a new platform fighter from Warner Bros. that plays a lot like Super Smash Bros. but with Shaggy and Batman.
Like Smash Bros., Multiversus is a platform fighter. It features characters like Shaggy from Scooby Doo, Gandalf from Lord of the Rings, Tom & Jerry, Batman, and more. I’ve confirmed that this game is real and these details are accurate as of today. But while some reports claim that Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm Studios is working on the game, that is not the case.
WB Interactive has tested Multiversus with some fans. The early word is that the game feels like it is on a tight budget — although Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl has proven that that isn’t necessarily an issue for this genre. WB is also potentially considering making the game free-to-play.
Regardless of the upfront business model, though, you should expect WB to lean into releasing DLC fighters. I’ve heard rumblings that WB is considering bringing in characters from its Space Jam films, including a certain active NBA star.
