There's no topping the greatest crossover brawler ever, Super Smash Bros. Everyone knows that. But there's still plenty of room for alternatives, especially if they're as fun as Player First Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's MultiVersus is. MultiVersus is an upcoming free-to-play fighting game that throws characters like Batman, Arya Stark, and Velma Dinkley into battle across various stages, where each combatant attempts to knock their opponents out of bounds.
So, the elephant in the room still needs to be addressed. Yes, at its core, it’s pretty much exactly like Super Smash Bros. and its various iterations. So much so that you could call it a complete ripoff, but here, that’s not a bad thing. After spending some time with the Closed Alpha, I’m pleased to say that MultiVersus goes a bit deeper than that – and it’s actually fun to play. It shouldn’t be difficult to make a game like Smash that you actually want to play, but alas, it is, considering how many titles have failed and attempted to recreate the formula.
So much so that MultiVersus being entertaining comes as a pleasant surprise. Here's my MultiVersus preview.
