Twitter Crashes And Reacts To Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Minecraft Steve Reveal

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai presented a short video this morning to announce the hero Steve from Minecraft. The announcement had Twitter in a tizzy, so much so that the site actually stopped working–though we can’t confirm that was the reason for it.

Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite reactions to the news thus far. Not only was Steve announced for the game, but Minecraft skins for characters like Enderman, a zombie, and Alex.

As user Stealth observed, Minecraft is one of the biggest games in the world. It’s unlikely any announcement could generate so much buzz.

Eurogamer’s Tom Phillips mentioned how the lack of one Crash can actually cause another. It’s funny how that works.

The world’s biggest Gex fan was disappointed that his favorite amphibian wasn’t selected, and it doesn’t appear he’ll be satisfied soon.

Another Microsoft-owned studio, Double Fine Productions, also had a little fun with the news.

Others reacted to Twitter itself, which wasn’t working correctly after the announcement was made.

And then there is the always-reliable 9 VOLT with an opinion someone probably actually has.

Some game brands, such as Tetris, took the news as an encouraging sign for the future. Let’s get that long, thin piece in the game!

But for those who were only paying semi-close attention, their mutual followers on Twitter appeared to be losing their collective mind.

You’ll be able to see more of Steve as part of Minecraft Live on October 3. More gameplay information will be shared at 7:30 AM PT / 10:30 AM ET.
