So now that Steve has been out for a while and I’ve played as him I have some thoughts.
He is a weird character to play. He’s fun as hell, but really odd to get used to. He has the tools to be an amazing character but he’s really clunky. I plan on maining him from here on out so I’m sure it’ll get easier but it’s a bit weird for newcomers.
I am still absolutely thrilled that he’s in the game, though he honestly should’ve been in as early as smash 4. Minecraft is such a massive title that it’s a no brainer to include him. This is a game that single handedly defined an entire generation of gaming and then some.
Steve is literally the best character they possibly could have added, he deserves to be in smash almost if not just as much as Mario and Link.
he’s especially great considering the three characters before this were all massive turds which is a shame considering the rest of the game before then was nearly perfect. Steve actually made the DLC for this game worthwhile.
