Posted by Justin 'AdaptiveTrigger' Gordon • October 13, 2020 at 6:04 p.m. PDT • Comments: 31

Steve and Alex are now available to download and use in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This also means that version 9.0.0 is now live.

Those that acquire this new fighter will also gain access to the new Minecraft stage. In addition, seven new musical tracks from spinoff Minecraft games can be played on the Minecraft stage, Battlefield, Small Battlefield, Big Battlefield, and Final Destination.

For $0.75, players can also acquire new Mii costumes that can make your Mii look like the Pig from Minecraft, the Creeper from Minecraft, the Diamond Armor from Minecraft, Gil from The Tower of Druaga, Bomberman from Konami's Bomberman series, and Travis Touchdown from No More Heroes.

Along with Steve and Alex, players can take up the appearance of the Zombie and Enderman through Steve's alternate costumes. Keep in mind that only Steve and Alex have 3 costumes each.

If you wish to buy Steve without purchasing the Fighters Pass Vol. 2, then he'll cost $5.99. Those with the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 already purchased ($29.99) should gain access to Steve automatically.
