Minecraft Steve joins Super Smash Bros!
During the most recent Super Smash Bros Ultimate event, it was revealed that Steve will join the battle! The reveal trailer showcases that Steve will come with 3 other unique skins in the form of Alex, the default female skin along with a Zombie and Enderman skin. Some unique features that come with the Minecraft characters are crafting different tools and weapons, placing blocks to stop opponents, and much more. The stage chosen for Steve is a mashup of different biomes from all over Minecraft such as Plains, Savannah, Mountains, or even Snow. In Steve’s final smash he uses a large piston that knocks the opponent into a Jungle Temple full of Creepers, Zombies, and TNT which explodes. Currently, there is no word on when Steve will join Smash Ultimate, but on October 3rd game director Masahiro Sakurai will hold a presentation and he will go over how Steve will play along with presumably other small things like new Mii fighter skins. Super Smash Bros Ultimate is available now only for the Nintendo Switch.

Peter’s face has been changed, originally in the PS4 version of the game Peter’s face was modeled after John Bubniak but for the remaster coming to PlayStation 5 he will instead be modeled after Ben Jordan, the reason for this change is because of wanting to capture Yuri Lowenthal’s voice more clearly. So far no other information about the change has been revealed, but that may change when the game releases. Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered releases for PlayStation 5 on November 12th.
