Minecraft Steve Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Minecraft Steve is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and here’s everything you need to know about the game’s blocky new fighter. Steve is one of Smash Ultimate’s most unique characters, pulling several mechanics out of Minecraft that give him a peculiar moveset to master. In the right hands, Steve looks like he could dominate any Smash Ultimate stage. His upgradeable tools pack quite a punch, and his ability to place blocks anywhere can easily hinder opponents attempting to recover back to the stage. Here’s everything you need to know about Minecraft Steve in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

All Minecraft Songs in Smash

There are only 7 Minecraft songs in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and none of them come from the original game. Each track is taken from Minecraft spin-off titles like Minecraft Dungeons and Minecraft Earth.

  • Halland/Dalarna
  • Earth
  • Clockwork Crafter
  • Toys on a Tear
  • Dance of the Blocks
  • Glide
  • The Arch-Illager

Each of these seven tracks is a new arrangement except for Clockwork Crafter, which comes from the Minecraft Battle minigame. Tracks from the base game were not included because they “would make players relax. According to series director Masuhiro Sakurai, “since this is such a frenetic game… it would be impossible to make the tracks from the original game work in that context.”

Minecraft Steve will be released on October 13 alongside update 9.0 for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
