MultiVersus Character Leak Includes Godzilla, Gandalf, And More
MultiVersus is in its closed beta right now, and already it's proving itself to be an absolute riot. Of the many attempted Smash Bros. clones, this new effort by Warner Bros. lands closest to the chaotic clatterings that the Nintendo icon practically created - with some tight combat and enough bizarre MultiVersus character picks to make it incredibly interesting.
There's something particularly compelling about kicking the snot out of Adventure Time's Jake the Dog as Game of Thrones' Arya Stark, and it has so far made MultiVersus the most interesting party-fighter competitor yet. But, it looks like the game is far from done with its extensive roster of fighters, as a new MultiVersus character leak hints at some choice picks coming to the game next.
Who's In The MultiVersus Character Leak?
A massive datamine has crept out from 4chan and revealed a huge swathe of new MultiVersus characters set to punch their way into the ring. 4chan might not be the most reputable of sources, but this lines up neatly with a lot of what we've heard before.
According to this MultiVersus leak, there are about 23 characters that seem to be finished and ready to be implemented into the game (either for its official launch or shortly after). The interesting bit is those who have been found in the games' files.
These characters are Craig (whoever Craig is), Poison Ivy, Raven, Static, Black Adam and Joker (DC), Legolas and Gandalf (Lord of the Rings) Daenerys and The Hound (Game of Thrones), The Wicked Witch of the West (The Wizard of Oz) Emmet (presumably from Back to the Future), Eleven (Stranger Things), Beetlejuice, Godzilla, Ninja and Brute (who are thought to be original characters), and Scooby-Doo himself.
Will There Be More MultiVersus Characters?
Though these potential MultiVersus characters are without codenames - meaning that they could yet be removed or replaced at the developers' discretion - there are a few waiting in the wings to be added to the game soon... perhaps even when the game officially releases. These characters are LeBron James and Marvin the Martian representing Space Jam, The Iron Giant, Rick and Morty, and Gizmo and Stripe from Gremlins.
It's already a huge lineup of characters, but the MultiVersus leak suggests even more are on the way. Seeing Godzilla take on Pickle Rick means it's perhaps the most bonkers character lineup since Mr Game & Watch joined Smash. Who knows - maybe the arrival of Rick & Morty could actually give the game a lot more pull. Heaven knows it deserves it.
