Super Smash Bros Ultimate Minecraft Stage Biomes Can Be Chosen

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Minecraft Stage

The Super Smash Bros Ultimate Minecraft stage will let players choose which Biome they want to play in when selecting the new arena. The news comes from the official Super Smash Bros Twitter account, just ahead of the upcoming release of the Minecraft Steve DLC on October 13, 2020.

When selecting the Minecraft stage, players can access six different biomes to start using a specific button input. If a player simply chooses the stage using the A button, a biome will be selected at random. The six terrain types are the plains, birch forest, savanna, taiga, snowy tundra, and stone shore. However, this feature isn’t purely cosmetic. Each biome will have different ratios of minerals to find, which factors into the core mechanics of Steve’s playstyle. Steve will use materials for his blocks and upgrades to his axes, swords, and pickaxes at crafting tables. Check out the button combinations below to access the specific Super Smash Bros Ultimate Minecraft stage biomes.

The Super Smash Bros Ultimate Minecraft Stage uwill come with Steve, the stage, new Spirits inspired by Minecraft, and seven new songs from Minecraft.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. The Minecraft update with the new stage and new playable character, Steve (with alternate skins for Alex, Enderman, and a Zombie), will launch on October 13, 2020.
