Super Smash Bros. Ultimate gets Steve and Alex from Minecraft on 14th October.
The announcement was made during a video deep-dive into the new DLC characters, below.
In the video, Smash chief Masahiro Sakurai reveals how Steve and Alex can mine, craft and create blocks in Smash, just as they can in Minecraft. They can use their tools to dig into the ground or walls to mine dirt, wood, stone, iron, gold and diamond – depending on the type of surface. Expect plenty of wood from the Kongo Jungle stage, for example, and iron from the Corneria stage.
