Multiversus | Hype Check

With Player First Games’ Multiversus now only a few days away, we wanted to touch base with some of our team to see how they’re feeling about the game. We’ve seen a range of media up to this point, from gameplay showcases and trailers, we’ve seen the press releases, and heard the talk, but how are we feeling? That’s where we’re bringing Hype Check into the mix; to get a gauge on what the prospective players are thinking. So here’s how we’re feeling about Multiversus.

It’s probably a bit rich for WB to call this the 1.0 launch, but having gone missing for a while, I’m sure they’re hoping that this will be the second coming. Multiverse started strongly, but lost momentum quickly too – I liked what I played, but it couldn’t hold my interest for long enough. It will be interesting to see if this 1.0 launch has enough meat on the bone to keep me around longer this time.

I enjoyed this when it was first released, but the dev plan for this one has been so odd I feel like it has lost all momentum. I can’t see the public caring anymore. If it releases with some single-player content I will check it out, but otherwise, I think the ship has sailed.

I honestly cannot muster a single ounce of excitement for the IP cross-over game not made by Nintendo these days, having been burned before with the likes of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl and a genuine curiosity as to who DOES get excited for many of the characters on this roster in the year 2024? But I have small children, and the siren song of Free-to-play and cartoon characters ensures even if I’m not excited about it, something in my house will get Multiversus installed on it.

Wait, is this the same thing that I installed on my PlayStation a couple of years back because apparently it wasn’t bad, and free to try out, but it ultimately just hung on the loading screen whenever I tried to play it? I honestly can’t tell. The only thing that seems clear is that Warner is bad at messaging.

And you’d have to be bad at messaging to confuse people here – this is going after Smash Bros. with a total of zero shame. Honestly, based on the video it looks fine and well done and competent (very possibly even good). The only issue is that I never clicked with the actual Nintendo games as much as I thought I should. Oh, and I don’t think that there’s a single word in entertainment media that feels more worn-out than ‘multiverse’ at this point.
