God this looks awful. I'm surprised devs can just blatantly copy Super Smash Bros. without consequences.

They really had to rub it in and have a whole segment talking about voice overs :messenger_tears_of_joy:

It looks fine for what it is, especially compared to other brawlers.

Title is a reference to 'multiverse', gotta give 'em credit for that. Pretty clever

It doesn't look too bad imo. My biggest concern is that I don't remember a single really competent Smash clone. Also, we need to see the mtx... if it's pay to win, it's DOA.

Superman should never be able to lose, you choose superman, you win.


Jerry of Tom and Jerry should be able to smoke.

I thought some of these characters were owned by NIKOLODEON but I guess that's not true. Surprised honestly at ADVENTURE TIME there - aren't they already in a brawler?

Superman should never be able to lose, you choose superman, you win.

It is a problem that comic writers have struggled with for decades; the Justice League show (and a comic from Joe Kelley in the early 2000's) made the case that Superman - even in the face of defeat - limits himself because of how destructive his power level has gotten in the hands of writers since the 40's.

Looks cool, but no items.
Also f2p could be a problem if additional characters are very expensive; fully balancing these games is generally impossible, so dlc characters could turn into p2w.

Honestly, it already looks and sounds better than that Nickelodeon game, AND it's F2P.

Am I expecting to be blown away? Of course not. They made the right choice making this F2P though, if they play their cards right, this could be pretty well received. Well, if the game is good/decent.

Everything's a "clone" until it's a genre. They're Doom clones until they became First Person Shooters. They're Street Fighter clones until they became fighting games. They're Roguelike until they became........ok bad example.

Game looks great tbh. F2p means Ill play so good on them for that
Graphically it looks like a cheap mobile phone games and the animation works are atrocious. Since there's no Switch version to hold them back, at the very least graphics should be better than Smash Ultimate on Switch.

It looks like a better Brawlhalla, and that game consistently gets 15k+ players.

My guy the budget for Smash Ultimate is infinitely bigger than this game. The game looks good still but doesn’t need to be the most impressive graphically to win an audience.
