    Rex Drives into Battle! (Xenoblade 2)

    Not gonna lie, I thought that when I first saw them. Then I started stretching my imagination a bit far afield and reasoned out that maybe they could be Rex and Pyra placeholders or "avatars", lol. ...I did say stretch~

    Rex Drives into Battle! (Xenoblade 2)

    It's possible. They wouldnt rewrite the story so at best they could appear in a flashback toward the end as part of the Klaus story maybe? Otherwise they'd have to be post game or extra content. Maybe there will be a post game cinematic describing their shared origins.

    Rex Drives into Battle! (Xenoblade 2)

    Well, I feel pretty strongly that my long speculated "land of challenge" crossover area equivalent will happen. Imagery implied they really are strengthening the connection between these two games with XCDE. The opportunity was certainly there and they arent missing it. Naturally, this fits...

    Rex Drives into Battle! (Xenoblade 2)

    My take is no. I find it unlikely that they would "overshadow" essentially what's likely to be a first gameplay trailer for XCDE with a DLC reveal for smash at the end. My expectation is that Rex and Aegis are most likely to find their best opportunity for a smash reveal following the reveal...

    Rex Drives into Battle! (Xenoblade 2)

    We only have one example of this being the case, so that hardly makes a pattern. If Rex/Aegis are confirmed, I'm sure they have a deadline. At the same time... they come out when they're ready. The benefit of being any character that's already been chosen, is that, in theory, you're...

    Rex Drives into Battle! (Xenoblade 2)

    Reminder that all the characters of the coming pass have already been chosen. So Nintendo and Sakurai already know if Rex/Aegis will be in this pass. And if they are, it's just a matter of when they're ready or when they want to release them. Vanishing relevancy is not a concern. And even...

    Rex Drives into Battle! (Xenoblade 2)

    I'm currently on my longest drought, so to speak. Last time I played it was in the first week of October after maxing affinity on all characters, maxing out arts, maxing level, and doing all sidequests/community stuff in Torna. There's little left for me to do in maingame as well. I left it...

    Rex Drives into Battle! (Xenoblade 2)

    Been pretty quiet in here, have to admit. Have a little draw I did a while back but decided to roughly color just today... Some friends a couple weeks ago asked me to draw something xenobladey since they know how much I love xenoblade. I decided to express my smash desires at the same time...

    Elma for Smash Ultimate: THANK YOU MIN MIN!!!!

    I agree honestly. And it's part of the reason I was skeptical we'd get any news there. Because part of me felt like it wouldnt be a good venue for any Smash announcement I'd care about. I wasnt ruling it out obviously, but the thought was that if they announced there it wasnt going to be for...

    Elma for Smash Ultimate: THANK YOU MIN MIN!!!!

    I know I've said it before.. but as much as I love Elma, if they gave me the option to get KOS-MOS or Rex/Aegis instead.. I'd accept so long as they actually got XCX's music in there. XCX's music is the biggest thing missing from XCX in Smash. Elma is second obviously. But as hard as it is to...

    Elma for Smash Ultimate: THANK YOU MIN MIN!!!!

    I'm down for a KOS-MOS reveal.. I get the feeling they'd go for the classic awakening scene.. which is of course referenced in XCX's late game reveal and redone for her awakening as a blade in XC2. That would be pretty freakin hype. She's maybe my third most wanted xeno rep tho.. but maybe...

    Elma for Smash Ultimate: THANK YOU MIN MIN!!!!

    Been a bit since I've peeked in here.. Have a nice vid by Luxin about XCX and XC2 on the week of their anniversary's... (western anniversary for XCX)... https://youtu.be/sSx2poXIl9c Will confess, that my optimism is high right now that we'll get some kind of additional monolith representation...

    Rex Drives into Battle! (Xenoblade 2)

    Admittedly, I've never had a real concrete notion of how Rex and Aegis should play. I think I'd prefer them to be a straight up like Pokemon Trainer in a way with three different characters, but also some aspects of Arsen and ICs in there. But that might be overly complicated. The truth is...

    Elma for Smash Ultimate: THANK YOU MIN MIN!!!!

    I've been kind of feeling the same way. Particularly because of the third party trending. And frankly, her inclusion would be pretty hype. If it's all we got from monolith in Smash, it would certainly be preferred over nothing from them. Of course, the greedy side of me wants more than just...

    Elma for Smash Ultimate: THANK YOU MIN MIN!!!!

    My expectation is that an XCX stage would just be the NLA tower with Primordia in the background. My hope was always more of a tour style stage, probably on the back of the Manon ship or something. Kinda Lylat style but on a larger stage obviously. It could blink around to the different...
