The new 9.0.1 update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has officially gone live, and it contains an important fix for Steve from Minecraft.
Although the patch notes make no mention of it, for an obvious reason, the patch appears to have made a change to Steve’s win screen. If you know, you know, and we don’t need to lay it out any more than that
In addition to that change, the 9.0.1 update makes several other updates to Steve/Alex to fix a series of issues related to clipping through the landscape and other oddities. You can see the full patch notes below, as shared by Nintendo on its website.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 9.0.1 Patch Notes
- Fixed the issue where sometimes an opposing fighter would go through the landscape when Steve/Alex created a block at a certain location and the opposing fighter destroyed the block.
- Fixed the issue where sometimes an opposing fighter would go through the landscape when Steve/Alex created a block at a certain location and the anvil created with a down air attack struck the opposing fighter.
- Fixed the issue where the opposing fighter would become uncontrollable when Steve/Alex hit them with a minecart in certain situations.
- Fixed the issue where if Steve/Alex’s minecart bounced off the wall, it would not hit the opposing fighter.
- Fixed the issue where opposing fighters carried in Steve/Alex’s minecart would sometimes be warped to the original location where they were picked up.
- Fixed the issue where certain fighters could go through Steve/Alex’s block once KO’d.
Smash Bros. Ultimate’s 9.0 update arrived last week. Along with various balance adjustments, that update introduced the game’s latest DLC character, Steve (and Alex) from Minecraft. The blocky fighter arrived alongside a brand-new stage, as well as a selection of Minecraft Spirits to unlock.
Steve is the second of six additional DLC characters planned for Smash Bros. Ultimate, following Min Min from Arms. Nintendo has not yet revealed the identities of the remaining four fighters. All six characters are included as part of the game’s Fighters Pass Vol. 2, which costs $30 USD. Each DLC fighter can also be purchased individually for $6 USD apiece.
