Nintendo and Sakurai have officially announced the newest characters making their way to the hit multiplayer fighter Super Smash Bros Ultimate. Thus far we’ve been treated to Super Mario‘s Piranha Plant, Persona 5’s Joker, Dragon Quest’s Hero, Fatal Fury’s Terry Bogard, the titular Banjo and Kazooie, Fire Emblem’s Byleth, and most recently ARMS’ MinMin. Now Minecraft’s Steve and Alex join the fray (along with their nemeses Enderman and Zombie).
The initial announcement video is short, sweet, and to the point.

From the looks of things Steve, Alex, Enderman, and Zombie will be very unique fighters. Blending what looks to be Animal Crossing’s Villager and Isabelle with Hero and a touch of Byleth and even a little Pac-Man. Thankfully, Sakurai gives us his detailed character breakdown on 10/3, so we won’t have to wait long to see exactly how this character plays.
With four characters still to be announced by end of 2021, there’s sure to be a slew of news heading our way. I can’t wait to see who will be joining the already massive roster next! Stay tuned!
I’ve worked my whole life to become a comic book illustrator, writer, and stand-up comedian. Batman and Captain Benjamin Sisko helped put a good head on my shoulders. I spent most of my childhood saving Hyrule and the Mushroom Kingdom and seeing the Justice League save all of creation time and time again. I live in Johnson City, TN with my wife Kary and daughter Laila enjoying the beautiful mountain scenery and occasional show. Three puppies round out the family and take up the rest of the time that isn’t spent debating which Wes Anderson or Studio Ghibli movie to watch. I spend an inordinate amount of time binge watching SVU, Futurama, and Letterkenny, and when I’m not watching I’m listening to “My Brother, My Brother, and Me” or playing the occasional game of D&D. If there’s a nerdy endeavor out there, I’ve probably at least tried it.
