    Don't know much about Xenoblade but I honestly prefer this over some of the popular characters people want added like Sora, Crash and Master Chief.

    Pyra looks pretty fun to play as and it's nice to get more female characters~

    I always liked Xenoblade and I think Pyra/Mythra is a cool addition. Given Xenoblade's been getting bigger it was only a matter of time
    At least it's not another goddamn FE character
    Still hoping for Crash and Doomguy for the last two

    This was mentioned in PapaGenos' reaction video but it seems like a lot of Fighters Pass 2 seems to be about filling in gaps that were in the base roster. Sakurai had initially wanted fighters from ARMS and Xenoblade 2 in the base roster but those games came out too late in the dev cycle to be added, Minecraft was in negotiations for a whopping five years, and Sephiroth added sorely lacking Final Fantasy content to the game.

    Utterly pointless. The characters for Fighters Pass 2 were already decided nearly two years ago.

    I'm still hoping for an Echo Fighter's pass at some point. It's weird that they introduced that concept in the Smash Direct just to reveal like 4 new characters out of it.

    Not who I would've picked, but I guess I'm happy for those who wanted them in. Was expecting after Sephiroth being unexpected, the next would've been a "safe" pick.

    I'm okay with this choice since its not a character people have been repeatedly asking for.
    If that's true, I wonder who the final 2 fighters are. Could a Pokemon from from SwSh be possible at this point?
    Yeah, I don't see why people want a character like that.

    Same people "Give us Sora and Dante!"

    It’s cute that people pretend that Nintendo not including a third party character is blasphemy, when it’s still their franchise so Nintendo can do what they want :p

    "I see. Too many swordsmen are there? What will you do?!"

    *Introduces swordswomen*

    Who are also actually swords. I think. I dunno actually, I haven't looked up Xenoblade 2.

    I don't know why anyone would think this would ever happen.
    Sure he's a videogame character and made by Square Enix, but I think both SE and Nintendo might have to have a chat with Disney about it...Like yeah they could remove Disney iconography from Sora and only feature non-Disney content from Kingdom Hearts, but then what's the point? It's not really KH representation without the Disney side of things. And we already know Sakurai isn't interested in including non-game characters in Smash Bros.

    And I'm still waiting for Sub Zero or Scorpion..

    Doesn't mean it'll happen.

    And before someone says so, no there is nothing in either of their movesets that would need "Toned down" just don't let them perform fatalities.

    Well, i guess E3 would somehow either bring Doom Guy or a Scorpion & Sub-Zero "two pack" of sorts...

    Considering E3 would make a good opportunity to introduce another western appeal character into the fold.

    Marginally surprising since this was the best selling Xenoblade game before (I'm pretty sure) the combined OG Xenoblade and its HD remake beat it.

    Of note, it also seems physical copies are sold out from Amazon (although you can find various sellers on Amazon listing it for well above MSRP).
