Been asking myself that question because I've heard it go both ways. I know that ESRB ratings on the box have had a disclaimer in the past that they don't account for online interactions or dlc content... but I think in general Megadoomer's assessment is correct in that they try to keep things under the same guidelines. Really, the disclaimer isn't necessarily permission. It's just saying "we're only accounting for the on the cart stuff with this box label".Do we know how exactly DLC is rated? If it's rated seperate from the main game we might get a less censored version of Mythra
In Smash 4 the Fiora spoiler was just a trophy really.. though, yeah, that was kind of significant. But she wasn't in Shulk's moveset at least. That of course has changed. I think Catalyst making an appearance in Rex's moveset would be a bit much, or even in his FS. Pnuema is a bit easier to imagine in an FS, and if they wanted they could wash her out with white light or a silhouette where she only appears for a split second as part of a larger chain attack to finish it off.I know that but I meant he's the only one to be able to control four/five blades in combat and gamreplay, those being Pyra, Mythra, (Pneuma as well technically), then two other blades (if we go with canon, Nia and Roc).
Fair, but I think if the really want to represent him in fullest he's gonna have a switching mechanic like Pokémon trainers.
I mean... I don't think Sakurai would care necessarily care about hat. He basically spoiled everything about Xenoblade 1 in Smash 4 besides Zanza. I'm just going with what they'd realistically do honestly plus I mean... I was thinking it would just be cool to see Rex represented in his fullest and honestly I was just thinking of Gensis Saber being the final smash if it's the one I'm remembering, where she sends a bunch of sword projectiles it'd basically just be like Diddy and Sonic's new final smashes where the swords are going all over the screen and knocking people around that or Rex gets teleported to the left of the screen and he and Pneuma do their level four special across the stage. I'd just them have something unique considering Sacred Arrow would be similar to PK Starstorm. Which uh... if they really wanted to be unique they could have all of his blades do their level four special at the same time (without tossing their weapons to Rex) but I feel like that may be a bit too much to animation and what not.
My expectation from Rex if he's to be added, is that his FS would mirror Shulk's mostly and it would be a chance to show off his teammates helping him. Pretty basic Dunban, Riki, Fiora situation. But I've also imagined a scenario where Rex has an opportunity to show off more teammates. It revolves around the assumption that he can change the effects and some moves of his sword by swapping between Mythra and Pyra. His FS would then be slightly different based on who was active when he used it. Just as a for instance... if he activates his FS with Pyra maybe Tora/Poppi and Nia/Dromarch are his teammates, but if he activates with Mythra it's Morag/Brighid and Zeke/Pandy. The effects are mostly similar but maybe one has slightly more damage and less knockback or a different knockback angle. Maybe the one with Nia gives a little heal too? Would kind of be like how Ryu gets a different FS based on the situation upon activation. Just some fun ideas really. Can't say that such a thing would happen, but it's kinda my ideal scenario I think.. assuming someone like Nia doesn't somehow get added to the roster too.
