Surprisingly, the fighting platformer has fit perfectly into the genre
Recently, we have seen a rise in popularity of a genre that, frankly, was under the table: fighting platformers. Although Super Smash Bros. Ultimate still holds the throne within the genre, a couple of new titles have appeared lately.
Among these 2 new titles in the genre, the one that is on everyone’s lips is Multiversus. The beta of the fighting platformer from Warner Bros. Games and Player First Games has turned out to be a hit out of the gate. In fact, according to what we can see on tracker.gg, Multiversus has more than 10.3 million players.
A success in all aspects
As previously mentioned, 2 games in the fighting platform genre have been released recently: Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, and Multiversus. Despite having a little more time on the market, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl has been totally eclipsed by the new game from Warner Bros. Games.
Multiversus has won the hearts of gamers by featuring different classic Warner Bros. characters such as Superman, Bugs Bunny, Shaggy, Jake the dog, and even LeBron James! In addition, both the art and gameplay of the title is extremely polished. Resulting in a brawler that can be considered to be on par with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Even this has been fully demonstrated in the numbers. Despite not having official data from Warner Bros. Games, tracker.gg brings stats that really impress. According to the stats tracker website, Multiversus has a total of 10.3+ million players. Yes, as you read, more than 10 million players in less than a month! But, it’s not only the total number of players that is impressive…
Also, tracker.gg keeps track of online players via Steam. At the time of writing this article, there are more than 63.3k active players on Steam. Knowing this data, and the great marketing impact that the game has had via Twitch and YouTube, we can say that it has been a great success. Although the release of the first season has been delayed, we are anxious to see how this new brawler that hosts more and more players evolves.
