Why don't you ask that in the Xenoblade 2 or Nintendo Switch boards? This is a Super Smash Bros board to discuss Super Smash Bros Ultimate, not other games.

So, reported for off-topic posting.

If this was a positive Xenoblade topic, you wouldn’t complain. Hmm...

The game is fun.

It's admittedly difficult to get into. I suggest literally googling how to play the game 10 gameplay hours into it.

Story is pretty tite too. A lot is cheesy but there is also much to be appreciated.

Yeah, I just don't get why people wanted him in.
I just don't see him being that good of a character :/

I'd rather want someone from Xenoblade X, imo.

Honestly I've seen a bit of Elma, she looks like she has a similar style to bayonetta but without the attitude.
That does not include the giant fist and feet

I dare to say he did it because he must have seen too many "I want Rex in Smash" topics here, which would make a lot of sense.

Unique and new playstyle and Xenoblade 2 was a good game.

There you go.

Interesting.
What about him is so special?

You're watching the boss of what's basically a tutorial chapter. The gameplay opens up a little later.

Despite the bad writing, the characters are pretty solid, and the exploration is very good. It also has the benefit of being the first Xenoblade post-smash Shulk to be available on a console with a large install base (new3ds and WiiU were tiny compared to the switch).

Is there like more crazier bosses throughout the story? Morag looks sick tbh

Somewhat right. She uses dual pistols and dual swords and can switch between them. I think a gimmick where she can switch between the two styles that changes her moveset would be interesting.

The main bad guy is Malos and Jin, and Jin honestly gets to crazy ridiculous levels of power.
There's some other ridiculous bosses like a giant maid robot, mutated humans, and whatnot.

Switching blades. Pyra and Mythra are his main ones.

He could incorporate Blade specials and levels.

A special attack that changes depending in the level. Flame Nova and Burning Sword are two examples.

Here's one of the postgame bosses:

It's also worth pointing out that while the action itself isn't always much to watch, the player has to keep an eye on all that HUD stuff. It can look slower than it is.
