There have been a lot of brawlers ‘inspired’ by Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and the latest one to arrive on the scene is the Warner Bros. title MultiVersus – featuring iconic heroes and cartoon characters like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Bugs Bunny and Tom & Jerry.

The tech experts over at Digital Foundry couldn’t resist and have decided to do a video comparison to see how this new game holds up against Masahiro Sakurai’s masterpiece. It’s already got a tremendous uphill battle on its hands considering how much Smash Bros. has been fine-tuned over the years, but can it actually compete?

Digital Foundry notes how the combat naturally borrows a lot of ideas from the Smash Bros. moveset, but the mechanics and flow of combat aren’t “quite as tight” as Smash Bros. It’s also apparently missing the on-screen visual cues and sounds that have been perhaps overlooked. Across the board – the game runs at 60 fps matching Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s performance.

There are plenty more comparisons throughout – with DF getting into a more detailed breakdown around the 10 minute mark, so feel free to take a look if you have been wondering how this Smash Bros. contender holds up. You can learn more over on our sister site Push Square:

And if you’re wondering, this free-to-play title is seemingly skipping a Switch release. There are plenty of alternatives to Super Smash Bros. on the Switch though like Brawlhalla and Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl.
