Steve from Minecraft is joining Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! Additionally, you can swap Steve out for Alex, Enderman or a Zombie, similar to how both male and female Byleth were previously added at the same time. You can check out the announcement video below.

A full presentation is coming on October 3 at 7:30 a.m. PT / 10:30 a.m. ET that will explain how Steve plays in greater detail. This will be held right before the Minecraft Live showcase. You can see some screenshots of Steve in action on the official website.

Minecraft is one of the biggest games in the world and is continuing to grow spinoff titles like Minecraft Dungeons. Minecraft passed 200 million copies sold earlier this year.

With Min Min from Arms added earlier this year, there are now four more fighters remaining for this second Fighter's Pass. All the characters have been selected, so begging won't do any good. This major roster just keeps expanding as we track every character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
