He utilizes a basketball in combat, granting him decent range and leverage against opponents. Further, his gameplay style seems to complement off-stage counters, as shown in the trailer.

This title is free-to-play and features characters from several Warner Bros IPs duking it out in 2D combative goodness. Cooperation and teamwork are at the forefront of the gameplay experience.
For instance, each character’s moveset complements the philosophy of teamwork with examples including Batman’s smoke bomb to inhibit the opposing team’s movement capabilities, Steven from Steven Universe emitting protective shields, and Bugs Bunny creating tunnels to create easier team travel across the stage.
The playable cast is fully voiced, with recognizable actors like Kevin Conroy expressing Batman. Cross-Play and Cross-Progression are supported across every platform alongside several social features like Guilds to enhance the general competitive desire. Leaderboards will also be added down the line.
Gameplay quality is a primary focus, with dedicated servers and rollback netcode for online play. Further, more content will be continually added, like new characters and skins.
MultiVersus is releasing for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC in 2022.
