On Thursday morning, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai introduced a new fighter as part of “Challenger Pack 7” — the familiar characters Steve and Alex from the popular video game Minecraft.
Nintendo shared an extended video after the announcement sharing further details on Steve, his attacks, and movements. Sakurai explained they included many details from Minecraft into Ultimate, such as a taunt of him eating a steak, or sleeping in a bed. Along with Alex, there’s six different appearances to choose from. Steve and Alex can both wield the familiar pixelated sword and pick ax as well as create blocks to jump onto or obstruct an incoming attack. Watch out for those zombies, though.
Minecraft World is a selection of one of six environments from Minecraft: plains, birch forest, savanna, taiga, snowy tundra and stone shore. Platforms are hidden within some of the trees and only become visible after attacking them.
Also unveiled were new Mii Fighter outfits.
- From Minecraft: Creeper (Brawler), Pig (Brawler), Diamond Armor (Swordfighter).
- From Tower of Druaga: Gil (Swordfighter)
- From Bomberman: Bomberman (Brawler)
- From Travis: Travis (Swordfighter)
This addition of Steve, Alex and new Mii Fighter costumes go live on Tuesday, October 13th, 2020.
