The universal appeal of titles like Super Smash Bros, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, and others like them is the ability to pull from a number of universes. It means that the potential for unique characters is much higher than in certain other fighting games out there. Sure, ones like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and others can have special fighters, but they’re often a rarity or DLC and not something you can expect with every new reveal. Multiversus is a title that has this exciting gimmick going for them, and now, a new leak seems to indicate that things are going to get even wilder than before.
New information just dropped regarding Season 1, teasing two new characters that are going to show up: Black Adam from DC Comics and Stripe from the Gremlins franchise. This is actually rather poetic, as the former is about to have a movie release this October and the Gremlins are actually going to have their own return via HBO Max. It makes sense for the dev team to be highlighting them in the game as it will help to promote both franchises.
In a new leak that has since been stricken down by copyright, we have a new clue as to who might be showing up next in Multiversus. That would be none other than Beetlejuice and the Wicked Witch of the West!
If you’re curious as to how these two were found out about, dataminers went deep into the code of the game and found out that there were voice lines for Beetlejuice tucked away in the data, and then some of those lines referenced the Wicked Witch, and so, it appears as though both of those characters are going to be making an appearance.
These characters are very different from many of the others in terms of their abilities and skills. Beetlejuice, for example, is someone who can do pretty much everything as shown in his movie and cartoon series, so the abilities he’ll have will be interesting to see. As for the Wicked Witch of the West, we know she’ll be able to use magic, but in what capacity remains to be seen. We also likely will see her flying monkeys show up as well.
What this and the reveals of Black Adam and Stripe (along with Rick and Morty), Multiversus is obviously not afraid to get weird and wild with its roster. If this is just the first season of new characters, who is going to show up next?
