There it is haha it was obvious when mario went flying thru the screen and it was pixelated
He looks so complicated to play as I brought second pass around min min debut, but I think I will be skipping on playing as steve, hopefully smash fans stop making up their own rules and realize the only rule is the character has to orginte from a video game
People can like it if they want, I’m not saying they can’t. But that was the worst possible outcome of this Direct, except from Fortnite avatar or something.
Dude looks so uninspired and boring to play.
Look at the way he even moves. I know that they’re trying to stay truthful to the source but look at characters like Corrin, K Rool or Bowser and then this guy.
I won’t go into why I think this is lame af because I’m going to get ripped apart, but “uninspired” is a nice way to put it.
As soon as Mario went through the cave and I noticed it was blocky, I immediately knew.
I have play Minecraft on my phone before witch is fun but i don’t know how is he going to work out in the game. Its going to be hard to play as him.
I’m happy for the Steve fans. He’s not really my cup of tea, but hey, minecraft is really big. I think it’s a fine choice
