Warner Bros’ new Smash Bros-inspired fighting game ‘Multiversus’ had its roster leaked, and revealed which famous characters made it into the upcoming platform fighter. But how does it compare to Smash Ultimate?

Turning massive IPs into fighting games seems to be the newest trend among large entertainment companies.

October 2021 brought the release of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, Nick’s attempt to create their version of Smash Bros, but with their cartoonish Nickelodeon flare.

New leaks have shown that entertainment giant Warner Bros is joining in on the fighting game frenzy, planning a similar style game with a star-studded roster.

Here are all the characters we know of that will make an appearance:

  • Steven Universe (Steven Universe)

LeBron James is rumored to be the first DLC character that will come to the game, representing the Space Jam franchise.

The original rumor also mentioned Harry Potter and Ron Weasley from the Harry Potter franchise could make an appearance, but nothing further substantiated that claim.

Overall, there are 19 roster slots so far for Warner Bros Multiversus. Compared to Smash Ultimate’s 82, that seems quite minuscule, but we are a long way away from Multiversus’ release date meaning more characters are likely to be confirmed.
