The news comes straight from today's short Super Smash Bros. presentation, which revealed the new character before a quick message from series director Masahiro Sakurai. Alongside Steve, Alex, Zombie and Enderman will also feature.
This Super Smash Bros. and Minecraft collaboration will also introduce a brand new stage based on Minecraft's world and seven music tracks from the series.
Steve is the seventh DLC fighter to be added to the game (not including Piranha Plant) and is part of the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 which also includes Min Min. Four more characters are still to be revealed. Steve's release date and more details about the character will be revealed this weekend.
