Player First Games and Warner Bros. took to social media today to announce the next big happening for their platform fighter, MultiVersus. A new character is joining the playable roster soon, and that fighter is none other than Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty.
The game’s official Twitter account released a short teaser trailer giving fans their first in-game look at Rick in MultiVersus.
“Goooooooood morning, MVPs! Next up to join the roster is……… 🥁🥁🥁” wrote the MultiVersus Twitter account. The hashtag “#ComingSoon” was also attached to the tweet accompanying the new trailer.
In the quick showcase, we see a cinematic bout between Reindog and Wonder Woman. The two slug it out for a little bit before Reindog spits a fireball at Wonder Woman, but to both of their surprise a green portal emerges in front of the latter and sees a Meeseeks from Rick and Morty come through and get hit by the projectile.
Three Meeseeks come running out of the portal and go on the attack before Rick makes his entrance, burps, and the scene ends.
The blue humanoids might be a hint at what Rick’s gameplay could be like, as it definitely seems like he summons them into battle here. One is also wielding a golf club, which could mean there are different versions of Meeseeks that can be brought into the fight.
An official release date for Rick was not divulged at this time, but the messaging seems to be “soon” here. MultiVersus’ director, Tony Huynh, even followed up on Twitter saying “coming very soon,” so fans shouldn’t have to wait too long to get their hands on the game’s next fighter.
