Professional Smash Player hungrybox appears to have leaked an upcoming Warner Bros Platform fighter titled Warner Bros Multiversus , pitting all the company’s IPs against each other.
hungrybox had uploaded a short video proving the existence of Warner Bros Multiversus , but the video was taken down within 30 minutes by Warner Bros, giving a lot of fans the signal that this could be a real upcoming project.
That being said, Warner Bros has not acknowledged the leak in any official capacity outside of the takedown as of this writing.
As a leak, naturally there’s little other information available to go off of- such as platforms, release window or even netcode plans.
While the video may be gone, one screenshot is still going around the internet, showing some of the game’s roster which includes Warner Bros. most popular IPs, such as Gandalf from Lord of the Rings, Rick from Rick & Morty as well as Bugs Bunny.
UPDATE, 9/11: The image was removed due to a DMCA claim by Warner Bros.
Here’s the full list of characters from the screenshot:
- Unknown new character
- Steven Universe (Steven Universe)
- Batman (DC Universe)
- Harley Quinn (DC Universe)
- Finn (Adventure Time)
- Jake(Adventure Time)
- Shaggy (Scooby Doo)
- Superman (DC Universe)
- Wonder Woman (DC Universe)
- Gandalf (Lord of the Rings)
- Rick (Rick & Morty)
- Bugs Bunny (Looney Tunes)
- Tom & Jerry (Tom & Jerry)
One more interesting thing to note in the screenshot is the addition of what appears to be archetype markers for each of the game’s characters. These appear to be a wing-and-halo, a dagger, a sword, a shield as well as a fist icon, possibly denoting playstyle.
Given the outstanding success of Super Smash Bros and its hiatus following the final Smash character reveal, it makes sense more companies with multiple characters under their belt would try to emulate its success with a big crossover fighter.
This year already saw the release of Nickelodeon All Star Brawl, which features various Nickelodeon characters from evergreen classics like Spongebob Squarepants to characters sustained only by their memes like Nigel Thornberry.
