Minecraft developer Mojang announced a surprise Minecraft x Super Smash Bros crossover this morning, which will be available in the future update for the Nintendo Switch game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. A Challenger Pack for the crossover fighting game will add a couple of Minecraft characters including Alex, Steve, the zombie, and the Enderman, which will join many popular video games characters including Mario, Kirby, Pac-Man, Mega Man, or Ryu.
“Bringing Minecraft to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the result of an amazing collaboration with Nintendo. As fans of the series and avid players at our studios, we couldn’t be more excited to see Minecraft join Smash’s already legendary lineup of characters,” said Chief Creative Officer Jens ‘Jeb’ Bergström.
