Following years of negotiations and rumors, Minecraft Steve and Alex (as well as Zombie and Enderman) are coming to Smash Ultimate! The memes are real. Series creator Masahiro Sakurai revealed the latest Smash fighter earlier this week, but it was just a brief glimpse. Today, we get the full deep-dive in a special livestream presentation ahead of Minecraft Live. It all kicks off at 7:30 am Pacific / 10:30 am Eastern, and you can watch it along with us by clicking below!

Minecraft Steve and Alex
As one of the most popular video games of all time, it shouldn’t be hard to believe Minecraft is crossing over with Smash Ultimate, but it still is. It sounds like it was a huge undertaking for Sakurai and the rest of the development team, but they persevered. Steve and Alex (and Zombie and Enderman) look to be a rather complicated fighter to use, with tons of multi-function attacks. Minecraft offers a nearly endless supply of blocks to choose from, and Sakurai has made some interesting choices.
We’ll get a much more clear picture of exactly how these combatants handle, and I’m looking forward to it! Do you see yourself adding Minecraft Steve and Alex into your stable of fighters, or will you be passing on the latest DLC?
