Panacea Is Shulk’s Apprentice in the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 DLC

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 DLC Panacea

Nintendo released new information about Panacea, Shulk’s apprentice and one of the new characters that will appear in the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC expansion. Panacea is a strong willed and honest individual, and she has a distaste for deceitfulness. Panacea admires Shulk as her teacher.

In one of the videos shared, Panacea faces Glimmer in battle and corners her with her combat prowess, just as Shulk appears. She shows mercy to her enemy, while letting her know that a false move will result in her demise. She fights using a spear.

In the main story of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, the founder of House Reid was Shulk’s apprentice. This could point to Panacea being one of the founders of the new City. Additionally, fans online have started to point out that Panacea’s appearance is very similar to siblings Sharla and Juju, from the first Xenoblade Chronicles game.

Panacea is voiced by Akeno Watanabe in the Japanese dub of the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC. She has previously voiced Rose in Street Fighter V, Liz Thompson in Soul Eater, and Sharla in the first Xenoblade Chronicles. This last role could prove as another hint indicating a relationship with Sharla, but we won’t know for sure until the release of the expansion.

The Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Future Redeemed DLC releases on April 25, 2023. The main game is immediately available for the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo also released a relationship chart for some of the central characters that will appear in the expansion.
