It all kicked off with a few matches of the wild fighting game Brawlhalla. The game originally released in 2017 and has since had lots of updates and content crossovers. Today, they showed off a few of the crazy modes and characters, including a brawl between Rayman and the Undertaker. The game recently released on iOS and Android phones in August, expanding the playerbase even further than it’s 40 million other players across consoles and PC. All these platforms have crossplay available, so the playerbase is only getting bigger!
