Super Smash Bros Ultimate 9.0.1: Steve's meat is gone, Patch Notes & more

Minecraft's Steve has been a dominant force in Super Smash Bros Ultimate since he arrived. Now it seems that Nintendo has made an effort to correct some of the more glitchy elements of his play with the 9.0.1 update.

Let's take a look at the changes.

Smash Bros Ultimate 9.0.1 patch notes

The fixes are all fairly general. However, they are also directed entirely at Steve and Alex, the Minecraft characters that only recently came into the game.

Sometimes an opposing fighter would go through the landscape when Steve/Alex created a block at a certain location and the opposing fighter destroyed the block. That's now gone.

Fixed the issue where sometimes an opposing fighter would go through the landscape when Steve/Alex created a block at a certain location and the anvil created with a down air attack struck the opposing fighter.

An opposing fighter would become uncontrollable when Steve/Alex hit them with a minecart in certain situations, this has now been corrected.

Fixed the issue where if Steve/Alex's minecart bounced off the wall, it would not hit the opposing fighter.

Opposing fighters carried in Steve/Alex's minecart would sometimes be warped to the original location where they were picked up. This is now fixed.

The issue where certain fighters could go through Steve/Alex's block once KO'd has been fixed.

Steve's victory screen

However, there is one thing Nintendo left out of the notes... Steve's victory meat has disappeared.

Phil Spencer's reaction to the original win screen has been doing the rounds, so clearly it was a top priority for Nintendo to fix!
