MultiVersus Fighting Game ft Shaggy & Batman is Here, How to Sign Up
We’ve recently talked about the MultiVersus fighting game, but it turns out that it wasn’t just a rumor! Yesterday, teasers were dropped by a few brands associated with the MultiVersus fighting game. Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, they were all dropping tweets, and tagging WB Games in them. These seemed pretty innocent, like Tom & Jerry asking “What new hijinks are Tom and Jerry up to now?” As it turns out, it’s incredibly real. This morning, we saw the video reveal, where WB Games talked about the game in a fair amount of detail. As much detail as we can get out of a 3-minute video.
Multiversus Fighting Game is Coming and You Can Sign Up To Test
This is a game that’s been speculated about a lot over the last few weeks and months. Turns out it’s going to release in 2022, across PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. On top of that, it’s going to have cross-platform and cross-progression. It’s going to be free-to-play, and at first glance, it definitely looks like a free-to-play game. That’s not necessarily a condemnation of the game. We do know they’re investing seriously into the netcode, as well as dedicated servers.
We also know a fair amount about the cast:
- Wonder Woman
- Harley Quinn
- Bugs Bunny
- Arya Stark
- Tom & Jerry
- Jake the Dog
- Finn the Human
- Steven Universe
- Reindog (Original Character)
Plus, Shaggy powers up like a Super Saiyajin. He’s also ripped. We also saw the gold Super Saiyajin aura, and he appeared to have a blue one as well. Does this mean Ultra Instinct Shaggy is canon? Sure feels that way. It’s feeling very positive, but here at the Esports Talk offices, we did have a chat after watching the trailer. One worry is that the characters seem to lack weight. They seem incredibly floaty. We’ll have to see if this pans out better than the Nickelodeon fighter. If nothing else, this could meme itself into popularity.
The WB Games president, David Haddad talked about the upcoming fighting game, MultiVersus:
“With MultiVersus we are creating a distinct competitive game that allows us to combine a deep roster of celebrated WarnerMedia franchises for gamers to enjoy,” Haddad said in an accompanying press release alongside the game’s announcement. “We are partnering with the talented team at Player First Games to bring together a free-to-play, online platform fighter with a wealth of iconic characters that fans know and love, from Wonder Woman and Bugs Bunny to Shaggy and Arya from Game of Thrones. And this is just the beginning, as we are excited to support upcoming seasons and ongoing game content.”
