A number of small glitches have been discovered since Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's latest character, Steve, joined the ranks earlier this week, but this one is perhaps the most game-breaking of all.

Spotted and shared online by Reddit user, -BunsenBurn-, the glitch occurs when Steve – or any one of his alt costumes – creates two bricks going vertically with a gap in between. Doing so appears to create a collision error of sorts, with poor old Samus falling victim to a glitch where she'll fall right through the bottom of the stage.

You can see how it all works in the video below. -BunsenBurn- says that they "were able to consistently recreate [the glitch] with Samus when breaking the bottom block with Jab 2 while there is another block above it (with a 1 block gap in between)."

It's very possible that Nintendo will swoop in with a patch to fix any major bugs spotted with Steve's unique moveset in due time. When the character was first revealed, series director Masahiro Sakurai explained that the character's programming was "a massive challenge", so it's perhaps unsurprising to see a few small errors sneak through.
