Shortly after the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate presentation that revealed Steve as a playable fighter, Twitter briefly shut down. As a result, Masahiro Sakurai jokingly Tweeted out that he noticed the unresponsive nature of Twitter at the time, and it could be humorous to believe that Steve's reveal had something to do with that. Perhaps Steve's reveal was bigger than it seems!
