Super Smash Bros Ultimate Steve Mod Brings Custom Skins To The Battle

Minecraft Steve Smash Bros Ultimate

Super Smash Bros. modding has a pretty prolific history to it, going as far back as Super Mash Bros. Brawl for the Wii. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is no exception to this either. With the release of the shiny new fighter in Steve (or Alex) from Minecraft comes a whole slew of possibilities for players, as we see Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Steve mods adding skins from the java release of the game. 

One particular modder, going by the name jam1garner on Twitter, has already taken the cutting edge approach to show off an easy way for players to mod their Minecraft skins in Smash Bros. Ultimate, by allowing players to download their JAVA version skins into the game. 

This particular mod also includes a new, customized menu on the character select screen, which can easily run javascript to grab your chosen skin with ease. This is pretty good for a game like Smash Bros. Ultimate, which would normally require more work from the players to change a characters appearance. Take a look at this video to see it in action:

The addition of new skins for Steve and Alex from Minecraft is a neat mod, and jam1garner points to a few guides on modding for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, specifically one found on Gamebanana, that goes through a step by step process to set up mods for your game and system. 

The bulk of it basically involves manipulating data on a microSD card of any capacity (32 GB or higher is recommended) and using several programs such as ARCropolis to download onto the SD card. Players then can manipulate the data, plus add further plugins, to install mods as they see fit, both big and small, for the game. Of course, it also goes without saying that you need a modified Nintendo Switch to do this all as well. 

"By the end of it you'll have everything this mod is dependent on, then just unzip the download onto the root of your SD card" noted jam1garner

For players looking to add their own custom skins into Smash Bros Ultimate, they can find and download the mode on jam1garners official blog page here. You can also check out jam1garners discussion on using coding programs like rust to help him create and run these mods, and other little tidbits about the Smash Bros. modding community for those interested in getting started with it.
