In a surprise announcement a few days ago Nintendo stated that a new Smash fighter would be shown in a short stream by Mr Sakurai yesterday which did indeed happen and boy it was an unexpected one!
The new fighter was revealed to be Steve (plus other characters) from Minecraft, complete with block building and crafting mechanics. Sakurai also stated that getting their stiff animations and movement into the game was perhaps the most difficult part of getting them to work in Smash and I totally believe him. The trailer they showed gave a brief glimpse into the moveset but in a few days Sakurai will livestream a showcase of the character in action so if you want to know more about this zany concept then check that out soon!
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
