Diamond geezer Steve getting Minecraft amiibo in September

The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Minecraft amiibo are finally on the way, with Steve and Alex finally launching in September following extensive delays

The Steve & Alex Minecraft amiibo are finally mining their way onto the scene on September 9 this year, following a delay in February for logistical reasons. This is the second amiibo from the second volume of the fighters pass expansion for the game, with five more to go.

The Minecraft amiibo will be available on the MyNintendo website soon enough, but if you want to take a closer look in the meantime, you can check out this fresh video on Nintendo of America’s Twitter. The second fighters pass for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is also the last one, featuring Min Min from arms, whose amiibo dropped at the end of April.

If you’re curious who else is on the cards (or in the box) for upcoming amiibo, we’re still waiting for Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII, Pyra & Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Kazuya from Tekken, and Sora from Kingdom Hearts. I know which one I’m most excited about, but that’s probably no surprise to anyone who’s read our Xenoblade Chronicles 3 review and seen the high praise there. Anyway, check out the art for the rest of the fighters pass below.

What comes after the Minecraft amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?

You can see the lineup of future characters in the fighters pass volume two art below. Hopefully, it’s not too long to wait!

The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2 art showing Min Min (a bobble hat-wearing blonde haired boxer), Minecraft Steve and Alex (blocky people, one with blue shirt and brown hair, the other with orange hair and green shirt), Sephiroth (mean looking dude with long silver hair), Pyra and Mythra (luxurious anime ladies, one red haired with a red outfit, the other blonde haired with white outfit), Kazuya (topless ripped dude), and Sora (a little boy with a big key). That's from left to right.
