Nintendo revealed more information about Rinka, Rex’s apprentice and a new character that will appear in the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC expansion. Rinka is a cautious and sensitive individual, as well as being an intelligent soldier and important member of the Liberators.

Rinka respects Rex a lot, and in a video shared by Nintendo she calls him her teacher. However, this doesn’t stop Rinka from scolding Rex for acting too rashly or impetuously. She bears a Core Crystal in her chest, indicating that she might be a Blade. She resembles Pandoria, Zeke’s Blade that appeared in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. In addition, Rinka shares her Japanese voice actor with Pandoria.

In the original Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Rex’s pupil was the founder of House Cassini. This means that Rinka might go on to have a larger role in the foundation of the new City during the events of Future Redeemed.

Ryo Hirohashi lends her voice to Rinka in the Japanese dub of the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC. She is well known for her roles in voicing Miles “Tails” Prower, Cheese, and Chocola in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, alongside voicing Pandoria in Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

The Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC releases on April 25, 2023. Nintendo recently showcased Panacea, Shulk’s apprentice and another member of the Liberators that will appear in Future Redeemed.
