It has been reported that Warner Bros. Games is working on a brand new Smash Bros. style title which is said to feature iconic characters such as Gandalf and Batman.
A recent post on Reddit from Redditor ‘hugeleakeractually’ has suggested that a brand new games is in the works at Warner Bros. Games, the title is rumoured to be Smash Bros. inspired and will feature a host of familiar characters.
The post read “Yes. It is based off Smash Bros (and now Nickelodeon All Stars, but this was in the works before Nickelodeon was even announced)”.
“It’s a Tag Team game. Not sure if that means you pick two characters and switch between them. Or if each “character” is actually a pair, or if each character is an individual and you only switch when you lose a stock. All I know is there’s synergy between certain characters which implies custom teams.”
The post then went on to list the chracters that are rumoured to included in the title:
“Characters I Can Confirm Are In The Game:“
- “Shaggy (Scooby Doo)
- Gandalf (Lord of the Rings)
- Tom & Jerry
- Fred Flinstone
- Mad Max
- Harry Potter & Ron are apparently in but the rights are weird so they stopped development on them? Not going to lie this may have been said in jest.
- Johnny Bravo”
Journalist Jeff Grubb took to Twitter to offer his confirmation on the rumour as he states he is aware of the project in question.
His post read “This WB platform fighter is real, but it is not a Netherrealm game. Come on.”
Of course we have seen Warner Bros mix up their IPs in previous years so it may be that we will see this project come into fruition after all.
Although, for now we must take this information with a pinch of salt as nothing has yet been confirmed, fans will just have to wait this one out and wait for a future announcement.
