MultiVersus Leak Allegedly Reveals Rick From Rick & Morty

An alleged MultiVersus leak seems to reveal Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty as a playable character. The crossover fighting game will bring together a huge roster of Warner Bros. characters like Batman, Arya Stark and Shaggy Rogers for intense platform brawls. Leaked MultiVersus roster characters suggest a truly robust lineup of entertainment icons, and Rick Sanchez will apparently add his unhinged genius to the fray.

On its surface MultiVersus seems to closely follow other crossover fighting games like Super Smash Bros. However, the upcoming title is taking several steps to improve upon the established formula. The game will include a huge variety of characters from across the Warner Bros. pantheon, which includes properties like DC Comics and Looney Tunes. MultiVersus will be a live-service game, with new characters and items being regularly added after launch. The game will also be based around a 2v2 competitive format, though other game modes like 1v1 and free-for-all will also be available. A MultiVersus open beta in July will act as a soft launch for the game, with developer Player First Games continuing to support it afterwards.

Twitter user Jdog_4789 recently shared a supposed leaked image of Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty within MultiVersus. While nothing is shown of the reckless mad scientist's actual gameplay abilities, his in-game presence does coincide with several previous leaks. While rumors typically claim that Rick's plucky grandson Morty will also appear in MultiVersus, the leak sadly excludes the good-natured sidekick. Jdog_4789's leak also depicts a MultiVersus stage associated with Rick, which seems to be based on the Cromulon Dimension from the popular Rick and Morty episode "Get Schwifty." The adult cartoon's popularity makes Rick's inclusion, even without Morty, seem incredibly plausible.

While the crossover brawler's confirmed cast is already very impressive, many fans are hoping to see HBO icons added to the MultiVersus character roster. Arya Stark already represents the epic fantasy series Game of Thrones, but other popular shows like The Sopranos, The Wire, Oz and even Last Week Tonight with John Oliver deserve to appear too. The Sopranos' merciless mobsters like Tony Soprano or Furio Giunta could bring serious firepower to the MultiVersus battlefield, as could The Wire icons like Brother Mouzone or Jimmy McNulty. However, John Oliver's fighting prowess may not be able to match fighters like Superman and Steven Universe.

MultiVersus will include numerous Warner Bros. stars, and the popularity of Rick and Morty makes the inclusion of Rick Sanchez a no-brainer. The nihilistic genius has a variety of gadgets to wield in combat, and his presence makes the inclusion of Morty almost inevitable. Jdog_4789's leak is unconfirmed, however, so for now MultiVersus' inclusion of either Rick and Morty protagonist remains a mere rumor.
