Super Smash Brothers Ultimate has been Gaining Traction

Within the last year, there’s been one franchise that has been on a lot of people’s Nintendo Switch.  This game is none other than Super Smash Brothers Ultimate.  With so many characters, it’s no wonder why this franchise has so many followers.  Especially since there have been several downloadable contents with new characters.  At first, the character releases weren’t too surprising.  Some of the new include Min Min from ARMS and Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses for instance.  However, Super Smash Brothers Ultimate has been receiving many character selections that fans weren’t expecting.  This includes Banjo & Kazooie, Joker from Persona, and Hero from Dragon Quest XI for instance.  Regardless, Super Smash Brothers Ultimate has a ton of different options from a wide range of franchises.  Then on September 29, 2020, Nintendo made a post on their social media accounts about a new character announcement.

Obviously, the excitement of fans has risen. This means that a new character is joining the fight of Super Smash Brothers Ultimate.  Then today, Nintendo reveals an iconic character coming soon.  This new character is the Minecraft main-character, Minecraft Steve.  Yes, you read that right. The beloved blocky hero, default skin Steve from Minecraft is in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate. Now, here’s the question. What does Steve have to offer as a fighter? How is Nintendo going to integrate Minecraft in a 3D game like Super Smash Brothers Ultimate? Let’s find out together. In this news article, we’re going to examine how Minecraft Steve will bring new exciting battles into Super Smash Brothers Ultimate.

Minecraft Steve Joins the Crew in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate

Minecraft Steve joins the fight in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate. For many, this reveal was a shock.  Yet, some aren’t happy at the idea.  How can Nintendo make Minecraft Steve into a fighter? Listen, if Nintendo can make a fighter out of Mr. Game & Watch, they can do Minecraft Steve. From what we see in the trailer, Steve has plenty of tricks to fight.  Fans of Minecraft will immediately recognize the attacks Minecraft Steve has to offer.  According to Nintendo’s YouTube page under the video Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Mr. Sakurai Presents “???”, Nintendo explains that “some of these attacks include the Elytra, sticky pistons, flint & steel, lava buckets, and blocks” (1:352:09).  These are just some of the items that make Steve’s attacks unique.  Of course, Steve would have to be equipped with blocks.

Especially since that’s what Minecraft is best known for.  However, Steve does also carry with him weapons.  One of the interesting things is the fact that the character must mine to make their items stronger.  At first, Minecraft Steve starts out with wood items.  Such as in Minecraft when players first start out.  Slowly, the player starts getting better material as they get more materials.  Which is what Steve does.  Occasionally, Steve mines material on the stage like stone, iron, and diamonds.  From what we see in this reveal trailer, Steve looks like an incredibly fun character.  Another interesting thing about Minecraft Steve in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate is the use of skins.

Such an Iconic Character has a Few Familiar Minecraft Skins

Another interesting aspect of Minecraft Steve is the use of different skins.  According to Nintendo’s official YouTube page under the video, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Mr. Sakurai Presents “???”, Nintendo states that “there are different skins options like the Enderman, Alex, and Zombie” (1:592:41).  Generally, Minecraft is known for its use of custom skins.  Now, the Enderman, Alex, and Zombie do have their own unique characteristics. For example, the Enderman skin can lift items with no issues.  Much like the Enderman in Minecraft.  Granted, other characters like Hero have uses skins with different abilities.  However, it’s super exciting to see the use of different skins.  Since that is one of the aspects of Minecraft.  Now, I don’t think that there isn’t going to be a way to do a custom skin option.  Regardless, there’s so much that Minecraft Steve and Alex have to offer.

While More News Will Come Soon, Minecraft Steve is Building a Home in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate

In this news article, we thoroughly analyze what Minecraft Steve has to offer in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate. Steve brings a lot of different types of tricks.  Some of which include two lava buckets, blocks, and weapons.  Which makes Minecraft Steve and Alex fun to use.  From what we see in the trailer, there’s going to be another direct to explain more.  According to Nintendo’s official YouTube page under Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Mr. Sakurai Presents “???”, Masahiro Sakurai explains that “on October 3, 2020, players will be able to learn more about Steve” (6:026:07).   This means that players are going to get more information about Minecraft Steve as well as his different skins.

Even with this information from this trailer, Steve as a character in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate is exciting.  What’s even more exciting is that this new character is from an iconic PC game.  Undoubtedly, Minecraft Steve will be a wonderful addition to Super Smash Brothers Ultimate.
