Minecraft Steve

So, there we have it. Steve from Minecraft is the next fighter set to join the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster. Well, Steve and Alex, Zombie and Enderman!

Today's quick presentation stopped short of giving us the usual excruciating detail for the character, or even a release date. Thankfully, though all of that info will be arriving this weekend in a special second presentation from series director, Masahiro Sakurai.

The presentation will air on 3rd October at 7:30am PT. Nintendo says that "Sakurai will be back with a deep dive video that will reveal more details about Steve and Alex, including their release date."

The Minecraft characters appear to be very different to the rest of the roster in terms of how they fight and also how stages can be affected, so it'll be interesting to see the characters in action.

Naturally, we'll make sure to cover Steve's release date and more right here when the info arrives.
