Ultra Instinct Shaggy is Unleashed
in Wild MultiVersus Trailer
The trailer for “MultiVersus,” a new fighting game from Player First Games, feels almost like a fever dream, even if you were already aware of this project's existence before now. Things kick off with Batman receiving a warning in the Bat Cave, just as he vanishes in a flash of light.
He reappears in a grassy oasis, right next to a frightened Shaggy, who promptly jumps into his arms. In quick succession, more characters from the game begin to teleport into the arena around them, then immediately turn on one another. For example, Bugs Bunny is nearly stabbed by Arya Stark, which strangely prompts Batman to toss a Batarang their way.
The developers previously confirmed that Matthew Lillard would be reprising his fan-favorite role of Shaggy for the new game — and that he would be joined by a cast of familiar voices. This was a huge deal to many fans, as fellow IP-centric brawler "Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl" was previously criticized for its lack of voice acting.
As fans can hear in the new trailer, Kevin Conroy returns to voice Batman in "MultiVersus," reprising a role he's played for three decades in projects like "Batman: The Animated Series," "Justice League," and Rocksteady's "Batman: Arkham" games. Meanwhile, George Newbern reprises his role of Superman from "Justice League.”
Judging by the huge group shot at the end of the latest "MultiVersus" trailer, it's likely that more beloved voice actors will be revealed in the near future. As strong as he is, Shaggy is probably going to have his hands full when the closed alpha test for the game begins on May 19.
