Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Steve and Alex's amiibo from Minecraft have a release date

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Nintendo has only recently confirmed the release date of the new amiibo of Steve and Alex taken from Minecraft, for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, after the postponement imposed some time ago on the objects in question that are particularly awaited by fans.

Initially scheduled for last spring, alongside Arms' Min Min hitting the market in April, Steve and Alex's amiibo will arrive on September 9, 2022, due to "production and logistics delays," according to Nintendo. .

These are, of course, the characters that are part of the crossover between Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Minecraft, in one of the most successful DLCs for the Nintendo game and which also required considerable work from Masahiro Sakurai and associates to try to adapt Steve and Alex to the context of the game, with really convincing results.

The launch of the DLC dates back to 2020, so amiibo took a really long time to wait, but it's a bit of a common feature of these items for the game in question. Although support for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, in terms of new content, has in fact now been concluded for a few months, there are still five amiibo scheduled but which will only arrive on the market in the future: Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII, Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Kazuya from Tekken and Sora from Kingdom Hearts.

Nintendo is still busy producing amiibo for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and the next batch as you might recall are Steve and Alex from Mojang's survival, crafting and building game Minecraft.

Earlier this year in February, these amiibo were delayed due to 'logistics and production' issues, but now we've finally got an official launch date - confirming both of these amiibo will be arriving on 9th September.

To go with it, Nintendo has given fans a brief preview:

In Japan, Steve and Alex will also receive a special double pack release. It's unknown at this stage if this will be made available locally.
