Steve and Alex are coming to the game as part of the second Challenger Pack for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Vol 2. The pack includes Steve and Alex, as well as an Enderman and Zombie skin, a new stage and seven music tracks from the Minecraft series.
The second Challenger Pack will be available as as a standalone purchase and included in the Fighters Pass Vol 2. Collection. The collection includes Steve and Alex, along with Min Min from Arms and four more yet-to-be announced characters.
