Today’s Nintendo Direct had a smashing introduction, showing us a thing or three from Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Unlike what many expected, main character Rex is sitting things out and instead our new fighter will be a pair of Blades.



Pyra and Mythra will be a single fighter, but players will be able to swap between the two of them freely. They’ll also bring a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 stage full of character cameos, and Rex can even lend a hand for their Final Smashes (yes, plural).

While finer details weren’t shared, we know they’ll be coming to the game along with music, Spirits, and their stage this March.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
