MultiVersus Adds The Joker To Its Rogues Gallery Of Playable Characters

The return of MultiVersus is mere weeks away, and the team at Player First Games has begun teasing what’s new and improved in the platform fighter. Following a pair of blog posts detailing netcode improvements and combat adjustments, the first roster addition of the new era has been announced: The Joker is coming to MultiVersus, with Mark Hamill once again providing his voice.

The Clown Prince of Crime was revealed in a brief teaser posted to the official MultiVersus Twitter account, which shows Batman approaching his archnemesis while passing Bugs Bunny, Shaggy, and Arya Stark, who had all been defeated. Joker emerges from a cloud of billowing smoke, taunts Batman, and the teaser ends.

A few snippets of gameplay for The Joker were then shared to the official MultiVersus Discord server, which show off the character’s standard emote and a flashy air combo. His info card was also unveiled, which lists a few of the moves in his repertoire:

  • Crowbarred is a vertical crowbar swing that can be charged before the attack.
  • Dirty Dealer is a projectile with one of three effects. Each effect cycles as the move is used.
  • Blastoff is a rocket-launcher projectile that can be charged before firing.

Mark Hamill returning to the role of The Joker is notable, as at a FanExpo event in San Francisco last November, the actor said he would never assume the role of The Joker again, as he refused to reprise the role without Kevin Conroy as Batman. Conroy, who passed away in November 2022, does provide the voice for Batman in MultiVersus.

MultiVersus will launch as a free-to-play title on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC on May 28.
