A short Direct has confirmed that Minecraft Steve has joined the Smash Bros roster.
Long rumoured, now confirmed, Minecraft has officially infiltrated Smash Bros.
Steve can build Minecraft style blocks, chip away at them, and even create things to fight with, like a sword.
Alex has also swapped in to the game, as well as the Enderman and Zombie. It’s a massive piece of news and one of the biggest third party crossovers the game has seen.
Sakurai confirms a huge amount of work has gone into this, such as balance, recreating assets, attacks, and allowing stages to have blocks built into them.
That’s all we know for now, but Sakurai will show how the characters play in just two short days in Mr Sakurai presents Steve and Alex.
