The 2D arena brawler is going to get a bit crowded if this recent rumour is true.
Warner Bros. is working on a 2D platformer fighting game that is similar to the Super Smash Bros. series and Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. The game will be called MultiVersus (via Reddit).
The game will be worked on by a Warner Bros. in-house studio; it will not be worked on by fighting game developer NetherRealm Studios.
Characters-wise, here’s an alleged leaked screencap of the game’s current roster from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate pro gamer Juan Manuel “Hungrybox” DeBiedma. The characters in the roster are:
- Steven Universe
- Finn (Adventure Time)
- Jake the Dog (Adventure Time)
- Harley Quinn
- Wonder Woman
- Gandalf The Grey
- Rick Sanchez (Rick & Morty)
- Bugs Bunny
- Tom & Jerry
- Shaggy (from Scooby-Doo)
- A new character – a bear with antlers
y’all thought I was lying, huh?

Other characters in the game include Mad Max, Fred Flintstone, and Johnny Bravo. There’s probably a good chance the game will be showcased at the PlayStation State of Play later at 5am today; until then, take all of this with a grain of salt.
