MultiVersus’ Launch Trailer Brings Forth Chaos And Adds A Few More Baddies

Who had their money on Jason Voorhees making the cut?

WB Games and Player First Games have shifted their marketing into a higher gear, with the impending full release of their madcap platform fighter MultiVersus coming on May 28.

To help set the mood, a delightfully devilish launch trailer gives us a character-filled look at what happens when these worlds collide – before concluding with the reveal of two exceptional cinema villains to help round out the more goodguy-adjacent part of the roster:

Jason Voorhees? Agent Smith, from The Matrix? Look, I was one of the people that was confused by the oddity of having characters like LeBron James and Arya Stark in a cartoon brawler – but this is the kind of nonsense that I can entirely get behind. The kid gloves are sufficiently off if I can play as my Big Man, the Mighty Slayer of Crystal Lake.

It also means that the games’ roster now reads like a total fever dream, just take a look at this craziness:

  • Bugs Bunny (Looney Tunes)
  • Taz (Looney Tunes)
  • Marvin the Martian (Looney Tunes)
  • Gizmo (Gremlins)
  • Stripe (Gremlins)
  • The Iron Giant (The Iron Giant)
  • Finn the Human (Adventure Time)
  • Jake the Dog (Adventure Time)
  • Banana Guard (Adventure Time)
  • LeBron James (Space Jam)
  • Arya Stark (Game of Thrones)
  • Reindog (MultiVersus)
  • Rick (Rick & Morty)
  • Morty (Rick & Morty)
  • Garnet (Steven Universe)
  • Steven Universe (Steven Universe)
  • Tom & Jerry (Tom & Jerry)
  • Shaggy (Scooby-Doo)
  • Velma (Scooby-Doo)
  • Batman (DC)
  • Black Adam (DC )
  • Harley Quinn (DC)
  • Superman (DC)
  • Wonder Woman (DC)
  • The Joker (DC)
  • Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th)
  • Agent Smith (The Matrix)

Having The Joker get revealed just a short while ago made perfect sense given the strong DC character presence, but the swerve of seeing a cinema serial killer and a sci-fi super baddie is nuts. I genuinely can’t even speculate who could come next – the door feels like it has been blown wide open.

For people eager to get in on the action, MultiVersus returns May 28 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.
