Play OverviewPlay Overview

MultiVersus (2022) is a fighting game like Smash Brothers where you team up with or against other players. The novelty is this teamwork and the deep catalogue of characters you can fight with. Batman, Shaggy from Scooby Do, Superman, Bugs Bunny and so on.

Play is like other brawling-fight games where you land different attacks on your opponents to wear them down and eventually knock them off the screen. The focus here is on special abilities and how different characters can use unique co-op abilities. You can also team up unlikely parings of characters as combat duos.

In a similar way that Lego Dimensions took the Skylanders idea and blended it with a range of Warner owned characters, this takes Smash Brothers and adds a similar (growing) roster of fighters. This already includes Iron Giant, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn, Shaggy and Velma (Scooby-Doo), Bugs Bunny and Tasmanian Devil, Arya Stark, Tom & Jerry, Jake the Dog and Finn the Human, Steven Universe and Garnet.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked MultiVersus 2 years ago.
