Morty (of Rick and Morty) joins the Warner Bros. ensemble's Smash-like fighting game on Aug. 23, according to the games' official Twitter account.

MultiVersus, a Warner Bros. game starring Warner Bros. characters like Batman, Bugs Bunny, and Scooby-Doos pal Shaggy, has been in an open beta since July 26 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X.

A datamine leak back in March said characters like Harry Potter, Fred Flintstone, and Gizmo from 1984's Gremlins would eventually join the game. Those characters are not yet confirmed.

Season 1 will include Morty and Rick with season 1's tip-off, and a ranked multiplayer leaderboard sometime after Aug. 15. Players should stay tuned for additional release dates.
