Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is all set to introduce new fighters to the game, which is sure to bring in new players as well. The most recent additions to the roster are none other than Steve and Alex from Minecraft. Yes, it’s that Steve and Alex. Their arrival to the game was announced by none other than Super Smash Bros. series creator Masahito Sakurai.
