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.

lol why? they arent playstation characters and are more pc characters, heck they have alot of games on nintendo consoles

doom 1 on snes,gba,switch
doom 2 on gba,switch
doom 64 n64,switch
doom 3 switch
doom 2016 switch
doom eternal upcoming (someday) switch

wolfenstein 3D snes,gba
wolfenstein II the new colossus switch
wolfenstein youngblood switch

so yeah doom guy has more than enough games on nintendo consoles than many games that have a rep lol.
I meant the type of characters that go in PlayStation all stars, not that they are play station characters. ssb is more comical friendly oriented while ps allstars is more mature and serious looking overall.

I personally wouldnt like to see doom guy on ssb, it would be completely off..

Not gonna lie tho its going to be funny as fuk beating ppl with Steve. And here I thought losing to a Mii was bad enough...
Hes an interesting character, but if they are aiming at popular 3rd party titles they might aswell throw in an overwatch or fortnite character

Thats fine I got nothing on opinions. At the same thats like saying a Tetris block fits ;). Im curious to try him tho the movesets look weird for competitive play, but we'll see
Everything is an opinion dear friend. Tetris block DO fit, it's a fact, but still a fact the way i see it, so its a form of an opinion.

I dont play competitive, he just looks fun to me and cute. SSB started as toys coming to life on top of a table and the game had cheerful tone to it...nowdays they dont even feel like that so i wouldnt even be surprised that they put any character there. The game lost its original appeal anyway..
Steve does look like a toy by the way.

Ps all stars was a single game with nothing worthy to remenber, it wont have a legacy to call it type of characters of ps all stars lol.

Doom guy was on nintendo consoles way before it was on sony consoles.

i can see doom guy playing much like snake, a mature character using some weapon moves and such, and with the weaponry he as available it can be a very diverse move set.

he would fit right along with snake imo, he wont stand out as much as as minecraft steve will gfx wise :P

I was talking about the tone that game sets not what character is/was on what console.
As for snake, he always felt off being there anyway, and so does many of other characters...but ssb doesn't look like it original was anyway so...whatever.
Its just that Mario and Doom mixed wouldn't feel ssb to me is all im saying. Steve fits there much better in that sense even if Minecraft wasn't on switch.

I guess people cant get over the fact that ssb is basically a kids game played by old guys mostly and competing. So nintendo is trying to make it more mature i guess nowadays realizing that fact and profiting on it...when originally it wasnt.
At least its how i see it.

Would be funny as Bayonetta Echo fighter at least.

I did not want Steve in Smash myself. I was somewhat rooting for him because I hoped that his inclusion would make my sister play the game.

I'm disappointed.
