A new trailer for MultiVersus shows The Joker in action, and also seemingly confirms The Powerpuff Girls as playable characters.

It was announced last week that The Joker would be added to the game when it relaunches, and will be voiced by Mark Hamill.

Now the new trailer shows off his moves, lets players hear some of his voice acting, and shows how he and Harley Quinn have some bespoke dialogue.

The start of the trailer also appears to show that The Powerpuff Girls will be coming to the game at some point.

The trailer shows the Bat Computer as it gets taken over by a virus created by The Joker. Before the virus infects the computer, the screen shows a number of existing MultiVersus character. The Powerpuff Girls, who have not been confirmed for the the game to date, can be seen in the top-right corner.

The Powepuff Girls were part of a list of datamined characters who were seemingly planned for the original incarnation of the game, along with the likes of Samurai Jack, Fred Flintstone, Johnny Bravo, Scorpion and Ted Lasso.

MultiVersus, which launched as an open beta in July 2022, is a Smash Bros-style crossover fighting game featuring characters from a variety of Warner Bros. properties, including DC Comics, Looney Tunes, Cartoon Network, Game of Thrones, Tom & Jerry, Gremlins, Rick & Morty and The Iron Giant.

The game was initially very popular, with a peak of more than 143,000 players on Steam on day one, rising to 153,433 the following day. A month after its launch, Warner claimed that over 20 million players had already downloaded and played the game.

After this, however, the daily peak player count fell dramatically, and by February 2023 it had dipped below 1,000 for the first time, marking a drop in daily peak player count of 99.4% in less than seven months.

MultiVersus will officially return on May 28, running on Unreal Engine 5, offering new gameplay features and – according to the trailer – starting with Season 1 again.
