Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - Steve from Minecraft joins the roster


Who will possibly be revealed? The latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character is just about to be announced at 7am PT/3pm BST. The livestream will be a short one, clocking in at only three minutes, though we will get a "brief message" from the man himself, Sakurai, directly after it. Be sure to tune in, or keep an eye on this thread to see who gets picked as the latest roster addition to Smash.

And the big reveal is Steve from Minecraft! Don't let your memes be dreams, as it's finally come true. There's a village stage that takes place in different biomes.

But wait, Zombie and Enderman also join the battle? And Alex, all as echo fighters, or costumes. It's unclear.

Sakurai asks, what exactly did we just watch. Well, he explains that Nintendo approached him with the idea of adding a Minecraft character. He says it took absolute wizardry to get Steve into the game. While some things were easy, it was the programming of the actual character that made things difficult, as his attacks involve placing blocks.

Sakurai will have a video on October 3rd where he'll show more off about the characters.

I went about my daily routines before picking up my Switch, seeing the announcement video on the 'featured news' bar, and exclaimed "HOLY FUCKING SHIT, WHAT?"

This'll probably be the first DLC character I buy. The moveset looks very, very interesting, not to mention I'm a long-time Minecraft fan. (Been playing since the beta!)

This truly is the worst timeline
We could have gotten geno announced today so your wrong

Why are so many people so fucking mad about this?
Out of all the websites on the internet, gbatemp seems to be a place where "minecraft bad" is still the norm.

"Wolfenstein guy?" Lurk moar.
Based
Let me guess - this will be post-1.9 Steve with the shitty combat system that disallows rapid clicking, won't it?
A shitty combat system they could easily immediately fix by making attackSpeed a gameRule or a World Option, instead of a bloody attribute - without having to screw up hunger bar mechanics, weapon strength values, or anything.
The trailer seems to use the sword mainly during smash attacks and tilts and thats about it. Still salty about 1.9 and mojang's stupid game design choice of not allowing the combat feeling like the old one with a command out of "innovation"

gonintendo posted a story from a former mojave person that said this was literally something 5 years in the making, and only recently was able to happen
do you have proof my friend? for this seems a little odd lol.

i feel like sakura tree guy was saying how hard it was mainly because he didn't have anything to talk about. for all we know, coding a smash char like bob could have been easy.

Eh, he'll first have to "build" a good reputation; so far, it's been decidedly mixed, if not negative. From what I've seen, anyway.

I just hope the next four aren't as disappointing as Min-Min...

Your FACE is a stupid children's game. Got'em.

Yeah, that was the one thing that made me a little apprehensive. It seems like it could be the basis for a lot of trolling and meta-breaking.

I wish the DLC was sold separately, so I could pick and choose who I want in my game - in fact, the entire roster should be freely chosen like that. No more Min Mins or Daisies or Rosalinas cluttering the roster; just the guys I want.

It is possible to buy each released challenger pack without buying an entire fighters' pass. But this is not possible for fighters that haven't released yet. Piranha Plant was released outside of the two fighters' pass, so it can be purchased separately, and only that way.
