The next character coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is Minecraft’s Steve, with all his building, bashing and crafting abilities represented in the game. He’s not alone though, as Alex, Zombie and Enderman also join the fight.
Steve and his chums might initially seem to be an incredibly jarring inclusion, but it’s hardly the first time that Super Smash Bros. has included characters from quite a few steps outside Nintendo’s pantheon of characters. Sonic was one of the highest profile crossover characters, busting down the traditional walls of the Sega-Nintendo rivalry, but there’s also been Snake from Metal Gear Solid, and the thoroughly saucy Bayonetta (partly because Nintendo now funds and publishes the series). Still, Minecraft characters just stand out from the crowd.
There’s few other details, such as when Steve and co. will actually arrive for the game, but there will be a gameplay video released at 3:30pm UK time on Saturday 3rd October showing off Steve and Alex in battle.
These are the second fighter pack from the second Fighter Pass for the wildly successful Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch. The Minecraft gang follow on from Min Min from ARMS, with four more on the way over the course of the next year to look forward to.
