There were many brawls “inspired” by Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and the latest one to hit the scene is the Warner Bros. multiversus – Featuring iconic and cartoon characters such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Bugs Bunny and Tom and Jerry.
The tech experts at Digital Foundry couldn’t resist and decided to make a video comparison to see how this new game holds up against Masahiro Sakurai’s masterpiece. He already has a huge uphill battle considering how much Smash Bros. has been fine-tuned over the years, but can it really compete?
Digital Foundry notes that the combat naturally borrows a lot of ideas from the Smash Bros. moveset, but that the mechanics and flow of combat aren’t “as intense” as they are in Smash Bros. Visual cues and on-screen sounds are also conspicuously missing. which may have been overlooked. Across the board, the game runs at 60fps, matching the performance of Super Smash Bros. ultimate.
