A new mod for Super Smash Bros Ultimate transforms F-Zero’s Captain Falcon into the Japanese soft drink mascot Pepsi Man and the results are amusing to say the least.

Mods for Smash Bros games are very popular, essentially adding more skins and costumes to the game’s already massive existing cast of characters.


With this mod, YouTuber Dylan Zimmerman showcased how the 90s Pepsi mascot would fair if he had to go against the Mushroom Kingdom’s Daisy in a one-on-one matchup on Battlefield. The mod itself was made by zrksyd and radzo73 on Game Banana.

As you can see, the YouTuber added some nice touches to the UI for the Pepsi Man character.


On the fighter select screen, Pepsi Man has an assortment of skins paying homage other soft drinks such as Coke with a red variant, Mountain Dew with a neon green color, Dr Pepper, Sprite and even Fanta.

In the match itself, Captain Falcon’s portrait is replaced with a can of Pepsi and his stocks little blue cans.

Aside from the visual differences, there are not that many changes to the gameplay. So, any Falcon main may want to try giving this one a shot.


This isn’t the first time that Pepsi Man has appeared in a video game. In 1999, a Japanese-only PlayStation game titled “Pepsiman” was released. It received mixed to negative reviews, with Famitsu giving it a 25/40.

Hilariously, Pepsi Man was also a legitimate playable fighter in the Japanese Sega Saturn version of Fighting Vipers. All things considered, the mascot has been in his fair share of games over the years.

Of course, it’s extremely unlikely that Pepsi Man will ever be added to Smash as a DLC fighter, but if you’re thirsty for some new content, this mod should help quench it.

Nintendo have confirmed that it is possible to change the specific Minecraft biome in Smash Ultimate when fighting on the Minecraft stage. Here’s how. 

Every Smash player looks forward to the announcement of a new Fighter. Previously, it was confirmed that Min-Min from ARMS would be joining the battle and then after that, it was all about Minecraft. 


Following much excitement and speculation, Sakurai confirmed that Minecraft would be joining the Smash roster on October 1. Specifically, the Minecraft pair of Steve and Alex – not the Creepers, Zombies, or other characters. 

On top of the new Minecraft characters and a new selection of Mii Fighter Costumes, the Minecraft DLC will also contain a new stage to fight on – Minecraft World.

If you’re out of the loop, Minecraft World isn’t a Minecraft theme park or such, but instead, it’s just a stage that shows off the different biomes that you find in Minecraft – with the exception of the Nether. 

Selecting Minecraft World as your stage means you’ll get a random biome, but Nintendo have confirmed that you can use button combos to select a specific one. 

The guide was tweeted out by the SmashBrosJP account on October 12, showing the different combos that relate to each biome. You can find the name of each biome and its specific button combo listed below. 


Minecraft Smash stage button combos

  • Village – L + A
  • Birch Forest – L + R + A
  • Savanna – L + L stick Up + A
  • Taiga – L + L stick Right + A
  • Snowy Tundra – L + L stick Down + A
  • Stone Shore – L + L stick Left + A


Using these commands will get you the stage you want, otherwise, the Minecraft World level will be random and throw out one of the six variants.

There are slight differences in each variant thanks to the trees, stones, and land creating height differences, but its nothing too crazy.
