Nintendo has announced that Steve and Alex from Minecraft will be joining the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster as part of Fighter Pass Vol. 2.
Earlier today, Nintendo revealed the next character(s) coming to the Fighter Pass Vol. 2 for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Steve and Alex from Minecraft. The new video showed off a good amount of gameplay for Steve duking it out in a number of stages, and according to Sakurai, each stage will have to be redesigned to support their style of play.
Part of their moveset involves digging up the ground to create items and weapons, so it’s no wonder the arenas need to be redesigned. This means that they will also be able to create blocks as platforms to try to get different aerial or directional advantages over opponents.
This is the second Fighter Pass for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and the announcement of Steve and Alex are the follow up fighters to Min Min from Arms. Both Enderman and a Zombie will be swappable fighters for Steve and Alex, so there is that to look forward to as well. There will be a deeper dive into the new fighters on October 3rd at 10:30AM Eastern time, so be sure to check that out as well.
