Minecraft’s Steve Builds His Way Into Smash Bros. Ultimate

Hey, at least it ain’t Ugly Steve.minecraft steve

What, thought the “Steve from Minecraft” memes from Miiverse would never come into fruition? You thought wrong — the latest fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate‘s second Fighter’s Pass is none other than the playable avatar from the world’s best-selling video game! Equipped with his trusty pick-axe, the blocky Steve stoically crafts and builds across the battlefield, riding mine-carts and blowing up TNT all the while. You can check out all the zaniness in the below trailer — not even Mario can get over his shock!

Steve isn’t the only Minecraft representative joining the battle — the female Alex avatar also joins the fray as a costume swap, as do the Zombie and Enderman enemies. Naturally, a Minecraft stage is also set for release, boasting randomized set-ups depending on the season. And that piano arrangement of…well, as a non-Minecraft fan, I can’t pinpoint what tune, but it certainly sounds lovely, eh?

Game director Masahiro Sakurai had some tongue-in-cheek commentary for the community that you can watch here, but as always, he’ll sit us down to analyze the character in a special broadcast. Arriving October 3rd on 10:30 AM EST, be sure to reserve your bookmarks here! (Remember — we’ll certainly get Mii Costumes as well!)

Are you a crank old gamer boomer salty as hell over Steve’s inclusion, or has his inclusion fulfilled all your Minecraft-laden childhood hopes and dreams? Let us know in the comments below!
