Nintendo certainly seemed to catch everyone off guard just a few days ago when they announced that Minecraft's Steve, Alex, Zombie and Enderman would be coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Fighter Pass Vol. 2.

Now the time has come for players to see just what all they'll be able to do in battle with Masahiro Sakurai presenting a full breakdown for the new additions and their mining, building crafting abilities.

The special presentation for Steve and Alex is scheduled to go live at 7:30 a.m. PT / 10:30 a.m. ET and will last roughly 45 minutes long, so there'll be plenty to see and take in.

We believe we were able to figure out much of what the stars of the most popular game ever will be able to do in terms of their gameplay mechanics from the initial reveal trailer though some big questions still remain.

How will building blocks work and not break the game or edge guarding, for example, has been something of a concern in the community though Sakurai alluded to measures being put in place to try and keep everything balanced.

No release date has been set for the Minecraft heroes and monsters though that'll also likely be announced during Sakurai's presentation which you can watch with us here once it goes live below.
