Smash Bros Steve was the big surprise for Nintendo Switch gamers this week, with the iconic Minecraft builder heading to SSBU later this month. Steve is the seventh DLC character for Super Smash Bros Ultimate - and the second one to feature in Fighters Pass 2. Steve follows in the footsteps of Arms's Min Min who launched FP2 back in June, and has a release date of October 14 for UK and European Switch gamers.

Cast your mind back to the far away land of 2019, when a surprise leak emerged at the start of the year.
Back then an alleged leak emerged that claimed to reveal incoming DLC characters for Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

Since then, however, a number of characters mentioned in that leak have turned out to be accurate.
As we've found out this week, we know that the leak was spot on about Smash Bros Ultimate getting Minecraft DLC. While the leak also correctly revealed that Dragon Quest's Hero would also be making their way to Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
Since the leak got two out of two right, it wouldn't be a surprise for the other characters that were mentioned to feature in
