Player First Games has revealed that it is nerfing one of MultiVersus' most popular characters, the one and only Bugs Bunny. But the changes won't take place until after EVO 2022.

That means players have until at least August 7th to enjoy the character as he currently stands. Bugs' powers include the ability to launch a devastating ACME rocket at his opponents, and the ability to drop a safe from on-high.

Game director Tony Huynh revealed the nerf was coming on Twitter. Huynh didn't specify details of the nerf, but did comment that "Bugs Bunny will always be fun". Perhaps this means the attempt to rebalance Bugs won't be as radical as the recent nerfs to Taz, which drastically reduced the power of his tornado ability after players complained that it was far too powerful.

We'll no doubt find out more about Bugs' nerf in the coming weeks. If you're not familiar with MultiVersus, Tyler succinctly described it as a "shockingly good Smash Bros on PC" published by Warner Bros with heavy deployment of all the studios' licenced characters. It's also free, so if you ever wanted to see Shaggy from Scooby Doo beat the stuffing out of Superman, you can download it over on Steam.
