If we got an XC2 character, I would want Tora. He's got three predefined blades to use for a blade-switch mechanic each with distinct weapons. He's not a generic anime swordsman having more in common with metaknight than marth. Being a tank is a good excuse to give us a small heavyweight, and nopon are basically xenoblade's moogle.

Gameplay opens up after chapter 3 concludes.

I think the story starts falling apart around chapter 8.

This.

And I don't think the gameplay is anything to write home about either. I felt it got worse as time went on.

Sort of curious, why do you think that?

Not Smurf86, but I think I can answer this. Once Mythra gets Lightspeed Flurry to a good level, the entire main game can be beaten by Rex and spamming two buttons with her. Most of the game's deeper mechanics are not always explained well and don't see much use outside of optional bosses.

The main game, for me, boiled down to "get 4+ color orbs and chain attack" and "driver combo with just Rex if farming items".

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.

Why even ask the switch board? That should be for games that don't have their own board, or peripherals etc.

Good luck getting the mods to enforce their own rules though. Someone made a thread on this very board asking for pokemon natures and it never even got closed.

Wow, this is really one of the things I was getting at. And even later once you get Master Driver thingie where Pyra/Mythra are powered up which was like, Chapter 8/9 I think? You can only do it once a battle, but it was still so busted that you didn't need to actually try.

Xenoblade X is my favorite and it's by no means amazing either. I'd gladly buy a Switch version with certain things addressed for that game.

I want Rex in Smash because the blade system essentially makes him Pokemon Trainer with 3 different move sets to choose from. He could be generic anime swordsman, or a gunner, or a scythe user, or an axe berserker, or a brawler.

I wouldn't really want him if he only wielded Pyra. It would make him a Roy with a grappling hook.

you know that's all they would do

at best he might be able to switch to Mythra

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.
couldnt get past the awful music to playit much
