The newest character coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate probably isn’t who you were expecting. Steve, the iconic Minecraft protagonist, is joining the game’s roster of fighters. And he won’t be coming alone either – Alex, Zombie, and Enderman are also coming to Smash.
These newest characters were announced in a video trailer. Director for the series and Nintendo mainstay Masahiro Sakurai then chatted about the announcement and gave us a look at some screenshots featuring the new characters.
As of now, we still don’t know when exactly the new Minecraft characters are getting added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The character are a part of Fighter Pass 2, with four characters still to be revealed. With the surprise of this one, who knows what we’ll get with the next four fighters?
