It is a big day for Monolith Soft, as June 10, 2020 is the tenth anniversary of the Xenoblade Chronicles series. The original installment debuted on the Wii in Japan on June 10, 2010. To all attention to the day, the company has teamed up with Koichi “CHOCO” Mugitani for Xenoblade Chronicles art, which is available as a standalone image or as a wallpaper, that highlights every installment’s “main” character.

In the middle of this Xenoblade Chronicles art is Xenoblade Chronicles X’s Elma with her dual swords. On the left is Xenoblade Chronicles’ Shulk. Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s Rex is on the right. In the background, if you look closely, you can see other notable characters and figures, like Fiora, a Skell, Pyra, Mythra, Nia, and Dromarch.

Here are all three versions of the art, which were shared on the series’ Twitter account and Monolith Soft’s website.

As for CHOCO, the artist has been known for doing concept sketches and character designs for Monolith Soft’s various Xeno series games. For example, there are the Xenosaga Emissions Concept Art Books. CHOCO also was responsible for the T-elos Re: Blade and Praxis Blade designs from Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

To celebrate the occasion, CHOCO released a picture of Melia.

Xenoblade Chronicles is available on the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo Wii. Xenoblade Chronicles X is available on the Nintendo Wii U. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is available on the Nintendo Switch.
