Some of Minecraft’s most recognizable characters are ready to settle it in Smash. Super Smash Bros
Ultimate Minecraft DLC was confirmed during Nintendo’s presentation on October 1, 2020. Steve is heading to the game. Though, it isn’t really just Steve. It turns out the DLC will also let people swap appearances and be Alex, Enderman, and a Zombie.
In the video, Nintendo showed how Steve (and his palette swaps) will work. People will actually be able to place Minecraft blocks in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate stages. Steve and Alex will have swords and pickaxes, and it seems you could “craft” to upgrade the sword. TNT will also be available.
Here’s the full video. Toward the second part of it, we can see how the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Minecraft stage will look and how it will change to reflect the seasons.
When Masahiro Sakurai, the director, spoke after the segment, he mentioned how he “didn’t think this day would come.” He also said Nintendo came to him asking if this could happen. He said, “The wizardry required to make it work in this game… it’s impossible! So I laid it out straight for them. I said, ‘Yes, I can do it.’” He went on to explain that stages had to be “reworked” for Steve and Alex’s blocks and the series’ biomes.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate is available for the Nintendo Switch, and the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Minecraft Steve, and the Alex, Enderman, and Zombie options, will appear in Challenger Pack 7. Minecraft is available on platforms like the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
