July 27, 2022: The MultiVersus open beta has finally gone live

The Multiversus open beta is in early access right now and it's proving to be really popular. Filled with iconic characters and gameplay that's much like that in Super Smash Bros, it's a lot of fun to learn. If you want to show off your skills, you'll want to play 1v1 in Multiversus, so we have a guide on how exactly to do that.

Like Nintendo's own figher, you can play team matches, against AI, and in larger battles. However, 1v1 is something you'll want to do to really have bragging rights over another player. It may also be a quicker way to level up your battlepass in Multiversus.
