But wouldn't a xenoblade character in soul calibur 6 get you excited and want more exclusive characters on switch?
Nope, not at all.
I would probably play through his story and then avoid him altogether. The only reason why I put up with Link in Soul Calibur 2 was because his throw was so broken (automatic ring out on smaller arenas since he throws so far), but I always disliked his very presence.
