One of the most massive game collaborations in 2020 is the arrival of “Minecraft” Steve and Alex in the huge crossover hit “Super Smash Bros.” that debuted in mid-October. This introduction gave people the chance to play as their favorite sandbox character, the legendary and average teal shirt guy Steve and the green shirt lady Alex.

Both characters appear as fighters who would battle leading characters from famous Nintendo and Bandai-Namco titles, including Mario, Pikachu from Pokemon, Ryu from Street Fighter, Kirby, and others. The game features an “all-star” list of all Nintendo favorites as well as the main characters from other developers and franchises.

“Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” originally debuted for the Nintendo Switch in 2018 and is an action-and-battle platform that has players named their favorite “Smash Bros.” characters. The early version of the game features “Donkey Kong” and “Super Mario” characters as roles in the gameplay.

However, over the years, the developers began adding famous main characters from well-known Japanese franchises to the roster to join the game. Masahiro Sakurai took over the development of the game and is still heavily involved in the development of the title over the years.

According to Nintendo’s recent interview with Sakurai (translated by Kotaku), the inclusion of “Minecraft” and its elements made it difficult for the team to include a certain component in the game. Sakurai is known for its veteran status as a game developer for Japan’s hit titles with the first Super Smash Bros. Melee in 2001.

Sakurai reveals that it wasn’t the characters, weapons, and skills that made Minecraft one of his greatest challenges in the creation of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Instead, it was the iconic game music of the hit sandbox title that challenged Sakurai and his team.

Masahiro Sakurai said that “Minecrafts” songs were too “relaxed” for the action-fighting game, which negated the vibe of “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate”. The team had to look for other music from the “Minecraft’s” library, especially mini-games and spin-offs like “Minecraft Earth” and “Minecraft Dungeons”.
