Minecraft Steve joins Smash Ultimate in incredible fan-made trailer

Super Smash Bros Ultimate players have become accustomed to seeing third party characters announced as DLC, so for anyone disappointed with the last couple of characters, a YouTuber decided to show how Minecraft Steve would look in the game.

The fan-made trailer uploaded and designed by FlashyPig begins with series creator Masahiro Sakurai speaking in Japanese while being “translated” by an English voiceover.


After a brief introduction setting the stage, the reveal portion begins with Kirby coming face-to-face with Steve who hammers himself out of a wall.

Steve looks pretty cool as a Smash fighter.

A flashy reveal screen then pops up officially “announcing” Steve as the next character. From there, the fighter’s moveset is shown off, all animated quite well.


From a fighter standpoint, the design would work quite well with Steve having multiple weapons from swords and hammers to shields and blocks.

FlashyPig even included a funny sleep animation with a bed and everything if Steve ever falls victim to Hero’s snooze attack or Jigglypuff’s sleep.

The animator even went out of their way to include different costume designs – a motif found in official Smash Ultimate teasers.


In the end of the video, we see Steve’s Final Smash ability when he summons the Ender Dragon, rides on it, and breathes fire down on enemies below.

“This is a character I’ve been wanting to add to the game for quite a while now,” FlashyPig wrote in the video description. “So to celebrate the idea of Steve getting added, I created a cinematic and gameplay trailer of how I think Steve would be added!”

The fan-made trailer included a bunch of alternate costumes.

Smash Ultimate still has five DLC fighters yet to be announced. All we know so far is that an ARMS character will be added sometime in June, but their identity is unknown as of this posting.


Will Steve be one of the final five and would he even work in Smash? If FlashyPig’s video is an indication, he very well could.

Streamer and owner of the OTK network Mizkif has announced a Minecraft tournament partnered with Twitch Rivals, with teams fronted by fellow creators. Here are all the details on how to watch it.

Twitch Rivals is an online esports tournament created by streaming platform Twitch that features popular streamers from the site along with pro-players.


600,000 follower creator Mizkif is running the tournament in collaboration with the platform, and the event will see several teams compete in a “Capture and Hold tournament that resembles WoW’s Arathi Basin, but in Minecraft.”

Mizkif is already a popular streamer, but he gains more popularity by the day with his entertaining content.

How to watch Mizkif’s Minecraft Tournament:

The event will take place on October 21 at 1:00 PM PT. You’ll be able to watch by tuning into either a participant’s stream directly through their Twitch channel, or through the Twitch Rivals channel itself.


As far as participants are concerned, no official lineup has been revealed, but in a Twitter exchange with Twitch Rivals via Twitter, Mizkif threw out names like Karl Jacobs, ConnorEatsPants, and Punz.

What is the format?

The double elimination Capture and Hold event will be played by eight creator-led teams of five people. Each round will be a 30 minute point race and will only be best of one. Every player will be equipped with an equipment kit to aid them, which they are able to select prior to the start of the match.


The kit loadouts, as detailed by the official event page, are as follows:

  • Tank
    Full Diamond Armor
    Iron Sword with Knockback 1
    Permanent Slowness 1 Debuff
  • Warrior
    Full Iron Armor with Protection 1
    Diamond Sword with Sharpness 1 + 15% Increased Damage
  • Hunter
    Full Leather Armor with Protection 1
    Power 2 Bow
    Slowness 2 Potion that regenerates every 10 seconds
    Permanent Speed 2 Buff
  • Priest
    Full Gold Armor with Protection 1
    Gold Sword with Sharpness 1
    Permanent Speed 1, Regen 2 Buffs
    Right Click with the gold sword to throw a snowball at a teammate that heals 5 hearts

Each match will see two teams compete head-to-head in a game of domination, with the first team to reach 1600 points winning that game.

Twitch Rivals are tournaments designed specifically for streamers.

While the individual games will be best of one, the grand final will be best of three with the Winner’s bracket team receiving a one-win advantage. The winners of the tourney will receive $6000 in prize money.


The event promises to be hugely entertaining, and with the high stakes prize, competition is likely to get pretty fierce.
