A long wait after Min Min’s long reach, we finally know who’s next up for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! None other than Steve was revealed as part of today’s brief broadcast. Hailing from Minecraft, they’ll be the next fighter coming as part of Fighters Pass Vol. 2.
Check out the Steve (and his alts Alex, Zombie, and Enderman) and the Minecraft stage reveal trailer below:
Creator Masahiro Sakurai spoke briefly about the inclusion after the trailer drop, citing Minecraft’s place as the best selling game in the world.
