Note: These articles are more for discussion purposes before E3. They'll be short, sweet, and to the point for a brief recap and looking into possible characters/stages for each series in Smash Bros. These also go by a "Don't expect too much" philosophy. Please remember to be civil in the comments discussion.
Xenoblade is one of Nintendo's newest franchises, making its Smash debut in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U with Shulk as its sole character, plus Gaur Plain as its sole stage.
Shulk will probably return; I doubt they'll take the replacement route for him.
Pyra and/or Rex, if any. Beyond that, it's hard to see anyone else being added aside from maybe Elma.
Gaur Plains seems very likely to return
We'll probably see something from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but a location from Xenoblade Chronicles X is also a possibility.
