Just as promised, today the latest DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was announced. This time around, the team is bringing Minecraft Steve and Alex to the battlefield, as well as Minecraft themed maps to play on.
The announcement was made earlier this afternoon and has much of the Smash community talking. Minecraft Steve has been rumoured to be making an appearance in Super Smash Bros for a long time now. You can see the announcement trailer below:

Joining Steve and Alex is the Minecraft zombie and the Enderman. From the trailer, we can also see special Minecraft themed battle items and an evolving stage featuring the different biomes available in Minecraft.
More information is due to be shared on the 3rd of October during Minecraft Live, a digital convention that is replacing MineCon going forward.
KitGuru Says: To this day, Minecraft continues to be one of the biggest and most recognisable games in the world. With Super Smash Bros being all about collaborations with the most iconic characters across the industry, seeing Minecraft represented here isn’t too surprising. Hopefully there will be more DLC collaborations to come, as the evolution of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been a joy to follow over the last couple of years.
