Smash Ultimate players disappointed with the limited amount of costumes for Steve and Alex can now add their own Minecraft Java skins to the game.
As demonstrated by modder jam1garner, who also created the ability to download the skins into the game, players can do it all through an in-game window.
After selecting their character, in this case, either Steve or Alex, players can type in their Minecraft username. By doing so, you’ll gain access to your Minecraft Java skins.
According to jam1garner, there is low ban and brick risk which means you can play online without the fear of it messing up your game or someone else’s.

“I haven’t heard of a switch brick in years. It’s impossible to mess up doing simple stuff like mods,” he explained. “The only worry is being banned from online and the only way I’ve seen that happen to someone is repeatedly playing Giga bowser online very publicly.”
Plus, as the modder further explained, there’s no reason that this type of mod should stop at Steve.
“This could be done for other characters, Steve is not special,” he stated, but noted that this isn’t as easy a conversion as some may believe it to be.
Fwiw, to both of you, I haven’t heard of a switch brick in years. It’s impossible to mess up doing simple stuff like mods. The only worry is being banned from online and the only way I’ve seen that happen to someone is repeatedly playing Giga bowser online very publicly.

Of course, in order to pull off this whole thing you will need to mod the game yourself, which is where some helpful tutorials come into play. Follow these instructions and download the mod itself from jam1garner and you’ll be on your way in no time.
As Dexerto has previously reported, there are plenty of neat Smash Ultimate mods that transform existing fighters into completely different characters.
There’s no telling what other mods players will cook up, especially with four more DLC characters still to be released as part of Fighters Pass Volume 2.
