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.
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!”
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.
