In a video hosted by Masahiro Sakurai, the Super Smash Bros.

“Steve and Alex bring their world of building and crafting Minecraft to the action-packed stages of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate“said Nick Chavez, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Nintendo of America.” When new fighters are added through the Fighters Pass, they bring a whole new style of play to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, offering players new strategies and options to keep the experience fresh. “
When selecting this new fighter, players will be able to choose between a Steve or Alex skin, each with three color variations. Additionally, players can also choose to look like Zombie or Enderman characters from Minecraft playing. Each of these characters, although they look different, have the same set of moves:
The basics: as in Minecraft, players can hold down the attack button to walk while repeatedly swinging a sword, ax, or pickaxe. These attacks have a short range, but a wide range. These tools can also be used for new capacities for the Super Smash Bros. franchise: Mine, Craft and Create Block.
Mine: During the fight, Steve and Alex can use their tools to dig into the ground or walls of each stage to extract materials. The materials found – dirt, wood, stone, iron, gold, and diamond – will depend on the type of surface Steve and Alex are digging into. Dig through the tree-filled Kongo jungle, for example, and players will find an abundance of wood, while iron can be found on the Corneria stage.
Crafting: After mining, players can then craft using the materials they’ve collected. Steve and Alex’s tools have limited durability and can shatter, so crafting new tools is essential to maintain an advantage on the battlefield. While standing in front of a crafting table, which will appear on the stage, players can use materials to craft these tools – the more valuable the material, the more powerful the tool!
Create Block: Another move Steve and Alex can use is Create Block. By activating this ability, players will be able to, well, create a block! These blocks can be stacked and strategically placed as defensive maneuvers. Blocks also use materials, like crafting, so players will need to keep mining to maintain their material supply.
Final Smash: Steve and Alex’s Final Smash explosive is called House of Boom. After destroying the Smash Ball, players will summon a giant piston, which will send opponents to the House of Boom. From there, the emblematic Creepers of Minecraft will trigger an explosion, dealing massive damage.
Minecraft World: The scene included in this Fighters Pass Vol. 2 pack is Minecraft World, which consists of six different areas inspired by the Minecraft Game. Destructible areas change randomly for each match. When fighting on this stage, players will experience a day and night cycle, with zombies and skeletons emerging at night to terrify players.
Musical tracks: since the music in Minecraft is meant to be calming and relaxing to inspire creativity and construction, the new musical tracks selected for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate come from more action-packed games in the Minecraft franchise, like Minecraft Land and Minecraft dungeons.
All of this new content will be available to players who purchase Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2 or who purchase the Challenger Pack 7 separately for $ 5.99. By purchasing Fighters Pass Vol. 2 for $ 29.99, players will have access to Steve and Alex, as well as previously released fighter Min Min from ARMS and four other Challenger packs that have yet to be announced as they are released. Each pack includes a fighter, a stage and several pieces of music.
Players can also buy Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 1 for a suggested retail price of $ 24.99 to access the first five Challenger Packs released for the game. The playable fighters Joker, Hero, Banjo & Kazooie, Terry Bogard and Byleth are all available now. For a suggested retail price of just $ 5.99 each, players can also purchase these packs individually.
In addition to the minecart full of sparkling details about Steve and Alex, some more news on the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game was revealed in the video, including the reveal of new Mii Fighter costumes and new amiibo figures. Bomberman, Creeper, Pig, Diamond Armor, Gil, and Travis Touchdown will be available in Mii Fighter costumes on October 13, while three new amiibo figures are also in production – Banjo & Kazooie, Byleth and Terry Bogard – and are slated to launch in 2021. .
