Did you know that Steve has secret ice, wool and sand resources in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?

The latest challenger to join Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's roster, Steve from Mojang Studios' Minecraft, has a fairly in-depth resource system. While grounded, Steve's neutral special will generate units of dirt, wood, stone, iron, gold, diamond and red stone that can be spent on Steve's other attacks.

In particular, the dirt resource tends to be the least useful for Steve as players are unable to craft weapons from dirt. Steve will exclusively craft weapons out of wood, stone, iron, gold and diamond. Dirt tends to get used for generating blocks in the air, crafting TNT and rails for the minecart special.

The big news in the world of Super Smash Bros. currently came to light just yesterday when Nintendo sent a cease and desist order to The Big House, effectively stopping the online Super Smash Bros. Melee and Ultimate event from taking place.

TG|Raito, generally known as the best Duck Hunt user in the world, recently released a tier list for version 9.0 of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Earlier this year, Raito was able to secure a 5th place finish at EVO Japan 2020, a tournament in which 2,988 players signed up to compete. The Japanese competitor was able to achieve this with Duck Hunt as his main character, and Banjo-Kazooie ready as a secondary.

This latest tier list arranges characters into six different categories โ€” S tier, A tier, B tier, C tier, D tier and E tier. A video was also released that has Raito talking about the placements, but you'll probably need to have English translations captions turned on unless you are able to understand Japanese.

Big-bodied DLC characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate have been non-existent but there's a really good candidate waiting from the Earthbound series

Following the release of Min Min from ARMS and Steve from Minecraft as DLC fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there are now only four characters remaining in the Fighters Pass Vol. 2. It is believed by Masahiro Sakurai that the ongoing development that's happened since Super Smash Bros. 4 will come to an end following the completion of these four challengers.

Although Super Smash Bros. Ultimate introduced Ridley and King K. Rool as the newcomer big-bodied characters into the base roster, there hasn't been any newcomer big-bodied characters released as DLC. Notably, there's an interesting candidate that could fulfill this void.

The brilliant minds behind Sprice Machines put together an unnecessarily complex machine (as their prone to do) that serves two key purposes: entertain the masses, and get the head of Sprice Machines, Steve Price, into a pool. Why did this wind up on website about fighting games? They somehow incorporate Super Smash Bros. Melee into the process.

Liquid|Dabuz recently released match up charts for both Olimar and Rosalina & Luma. It's fair to say that Dabuz is the most successful representative for both characters when it comes to high level competition in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
