Minecraft Characters Dig Their Way into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

It looks like the Smash arena is going to get more rocky… or blocky (I guess) with the addition of Minecraft’s Steve as a DLC fighter.

Today, Nintendo revealed a new trailer about the latest DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which turned out to be Steve, the male protagonist from Mojang’s sandbox hit Minecraft.

The trailer gives a sneak preview of Steve’s moveset, a Minecraft themed stage that appears to be a village from the original game as well as the reveal of 3 echo fighters.

These echo fighters are:

  • Alex, the deuteragonist and female counterpart to Steve
  • Zombie, an eerie enemy
  • Enderman, an elongated menace

Steve will overall be Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s

  •  7th Challenger Pack fighter
  • 2nd fighter in Fighter’s Pass vol. 2, and 
  •  8th DLC character announced, so far.

With Steve being officially announced, previous doubts about his inclusion in the Smash roster can finally be laid to rest.

Currently, no exact date is set for when Steve, Alex, Zombie, and Enderman will be available to play. 

However, with the upcoming “Mr. Sakurai Presents: Steve and Alex” presentation well on its way, Smash fans and Minecraft fans will be able to tune in for more info at 7:30 a.m. PT (10:30 a.m ET) on October 3rd.

Are you surprised with Minecraft being included in Smash? What other DLC characters do you think will be announced next?
