Minecraft will be represented in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, with it being announced that Minecraft’s Steve will be available as a DLC fighter, with Alex, a Zombie and an Enderman being available as alternative skins or as echo fighters.
The reveal video showed the character in action, revealing they could craft items to benefit themselves or use against enemies, such as a sword. There was also a new level shown off, which looks to be able to display the various biomes we’ve seen in Minecraft.
Masahiro Sakurai spoke afterwards, detailing the design process and talking to the difficulty in programming such a character into the game.
We didn’t see a release date mentioned, but it was announced that a longer video detailing the character will be available on October 4 from 1:30 AM AEST.
