Nintendo Switch Exclusive Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Gets New Blade Designed by Kia Asamiya

Monolith Software and Nintendo reveal another rare blade designed by a famous mangaka, Kia Asamiya of Silent Möbius fame.

All right. Now Monolith Soft is just showing off. Today they revealed a new rare blade on the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 official Twitter account.

This time around we get to see Musubi in both artwork and video. She is a “goddess” blade with impressive healing abilities.

If you check out her artwork below, and you’re into manga, you’ll probably recognize who designed her. It’s Kia Asamiya, author of classics like Silent Möbius, Compiler and Martian Successor Nadesico.

Musubi is voiced by Miki Takahashi, who is known for Iris in Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana and Aisha in Genesis Climber MOSPEADA (one of the three anime series alongside Super Dimension Fortress Macross and Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross that the goons at Harmony Gold defaced in order to create that shameful mashup named Robotech).

You can check the artwork and video below. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy another batch of screenshots and videos from yesterdaymore screenshots featuring the Argentum Trade Guild and its Boss, two characters designed by Tetsuya Nomura, one by Code Geass character designer Takahiro Kimuraone by  Takeshi Nogami, and one by  Boogiepop character designer Kouji Ogata. You can also watch some recent gameplay, and the latest trailer.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will release worldwide exclusively for Nintendo Switch on December 1st.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
