5. Steve (Minecraft) - at this point, there is no barrier for entry that Minecraft does not exceed. Cloud got in Smash Bros before even being a character on a Nintendo platform. Piranha Plant got in despite nobody even suggesting him. Bayonetta got in and is not even that iconic of a video game series. Snake is returning along with Simon and Richter, who are from Konami, the company which has essentially sworn off AAA development. now look at Minecraft. excluding Tetris, Minecraft is the best selling video game of all time. Microsoft is even open to working with Nintendo to put characters in the game. and Steve actually has a ton of potential for a moveset. he has a sword, he can throw splash potions, he can place TNT, newer items in the game give him the ability to glide and hold a shield, and thats just scratching the surface. i will gladly eat my words if anyone can give me a reasonable excuse as to why he couldnt be in the game.
Because it would suck.
