“Outstanding” Japanese Voice Cast Hired For Xenoblade Chronicles X Says Producer


    The Xenoblade Chronicles X website was updated last night with information on two new characters. In addition, producer Shingo Kawabata also said a few words regarding the game’s voice cast over Twitter.


    “I wasn’t really informed of this, but it seems we’re planning on updating the official site every week,” Kawabata said. “I wonder if we’ll be all right? Then again, Nomura and the web design staff are extremely motivated, so I’m sure they’ll work hard for your sake.”


    “As we present our characters, we’re also revealing the people that have lent us their voices. We’ve managed to acquire an outstanding cast, so you can look forward to hearing their work. As there was such a large amount of text, recording [the voices] took a lot of work, but the entire cast was exceptionally professional. The end result, of course, is perfection.”


    Five of the voiceover artists for the game have been announced so far. These are as follows:


    • Elma – Houko Kuwashima
    • Lynlee – Mariya Ise
    • Tatsu – Daisuke Sakaguchi
    • Irina – Nao Takamori
    • Van Damme – Tessho Genda


    Of course, there’s a good chance that Nintendo will dub the game into English during localization, and considering the English voices in the original Xenoblade Chronicles were top-notch, here’s hoping the voice cast this time around is just as good.


    Xenoblade Chronicles X will be released in North America and Europe this year.
