Today, during a panel at Anime Expo, that DualShockers attended, Bandai Namco revealed the name of one of the NPCs that we have seen in previous screenshots and trailers.
Her name is Mia Karnstein, and she will be one of the NPCs that will accompany the protagonist during the game. In Japan her voice actress is Ai Kayano, known for Alisha in Tales of Zestiria, Y’shtola in Final Fantasy XIV and Yomi in Senran Kagura.
Currently Bandai Namco is auditioning to decide her English voice.
Producer Yosuke Tomizawa mentioned that the graphics will be more beautiful than ever before thanks to the use of Unreal Engine 4. He promised that fans will notice a huge difference from previous games of this kind from Bandai Namco.
