Nintendo has pushed a patch to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that removes the unintentionally NSFW victory pose used by Minecraft Steve.

The Mojang mascot arrived in-game on October 13, and shortly after fans made the internet aware of his provocative victory animation. If Steve triumphs over his Nintendo colleagues, he will start eating a piece of steak in the endgame screen and then hold the steak slab at waist height, creating an image rife with potential innuendo for those of us with a dirty mind.

However, Nintendo has now made it so that the steak vanishes after he eats it, removing its promiscuous potential. You can see Steve’s new victory pose in the video above, uploaded by Twitter user Plun_Yu. This is one of the many tweaks introduced in the Ver. 9.0.1 update, issued on October 21. As well as getting rid of Steve’s slab, the patch has fixed a few issues with the Minecart and Anvil moves used by the new suite of Minecraft characters.

Microsoft’s head of gaming Phil Spencer was shown the image in an interview with Kotaku’s Stephen Totilo last week. After a long pause, Spencer responded “Yeah. Who did that?” before being told it was a real screenshot for the game, and saying, “I assume that will be fixed.”

In our review of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Minecraft Steve DLC we considered more than just his modesty, scoring the fighter a 7 and noting that “his uniqueness carries him far nonetheless.” In other Smash Bros. Ultimate news, check out the new Banjo-Kazooie, Byleth and Terry Bogard amiibo that will arrive in 2021.
