The world of Minecraft will soon be invading Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with Steve, Alex, Zombie and Enderman joining the expansive DLC roster, and now we know exactly when they'll be arriving.

During the gameplay breakdown stream this morning, Smash director Masahiro Sakurai announced that the new Minecraft fighters and stage will be digging their way to the main event on October 13.

It's fairly easy to tell that Steve and the other Minecraft reps will be the most unique members of the 80+ character roster with a massive focus being put on resource management to upgrade weaponry and keep up with the opponent.

To make up for that in some ways, however, they'll be able to place blocks on levels that can allow for nasty edge guard set ups off stage.

As with previous DLC releases for Smash Ultimate, new Mii Fighter costumes will also be arriving for the new fighter including the iconic Creeper from Minecraft along with a pig standing like a person and a diamond-clad Swordfighter.

The Tower of Druaga and Konami's Bomberman will also be receiving new Smash representation through Mii costumes with Gil and the titular bomber coming as well.

Fans of No More Heroes finally get the chance to see Travis Touchdown in Smash though he too will be part of the new Mii Fighter DLC costumes instead of a full-fledged character. He still has his signature glasses and beam katana to take into battle.

Players can pick up Steve, Alex, Zombie and Enderman upon release for $5.99 USD or as part of Fighter Pass Vol. 2 while the Mii Fighter costumes will also be dropping on Oct. 13 for $0.75 apiece.
