Another major third-party franchise is joining Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the form of Minecraft. As one would expect, this isn’t something that came together rather quickly. You may be interested to hear just how long something like this has been in the works though.

Former Mojang Studios business developer Daniel Kaplan briefly weighed in on today’s news on Twitter. Apparently, talks of Minecraft in Smash Bros. began “at least five” years ago. When pressed further, Kaplan added that he has “no idea when implementation started.”

Minecraft’s addition to the Super Smash Bros. universe was revealed in a presentation earlier today. Director Masahiro Sakurai will be delivering a lengthy presentation on October 3 to further explain the DLC and will be providing a release date.

An ad in Japan is leading to speculation that the next DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be announced soon. It’ll only be up until October 4, and based on previous patterns, Nintendo may have news to share in the very near future.

A similar situation has occurred with 7-11 ads in Japan. With Hero and Banjo & Kazooie for instance, their ads were set to be removed by a certain date, and their DLC release took place just a few days before they were taken down.
