Monolith Software is continuing to trickle down images and videos of its upcoming JRPG Xenoblade Chronicles 2 on its official Twitter account.

First of all, we get to see some new rare blades: Dicharao is a demonic-looking blade designed by Final Fantasy III Art Director Ryosuke Aiba, who currently works with Akihiko Yoshida’s CyDesignation. He is voiced by Shunsuke Takeuchi (Gonta Gokuhara in Danganronpa 3: Killing Harmony).

The second rare blade is “Teni” with the appearance similar to a dragon. She is designed by Final Fantasy XII Art Director Hideo Minaba, also currently at CyDesignation. She is voiced by acting veteran Aya Endo (Lyse in Final Fantasy XIV, Karin in Street Fighter V, Fiore in Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness).

The third rare blade is “Guren,” a hot blooded blade created by Tales series character designer Minoru Iwamoto, and voiced by Tooru Furuya, who doesn’t need any introduction since he’s Amuro Ray from Gundam.

The fourth blade is “Yaegiri,” who is seeking a strong opponent to prove the worth of her training. She is also designed by Minoru Iwamoto, and voiced by Ayana Taketatsu (Leafa in Sword Art Online).

We also get another look at Rex’s companion Zeke, whose full name is “Zeke “B-Polar” Genbu.” Apparently, he hides the soul of a hero under his eyepatch. He is voiced by Kenjiro Tsuda (Seto Kaiba in Yu-Gi-Oh! and Zaveid in Tales of Berseria and Zestiria)

His blade is Saika (who for reason unknown – but probably worthless and arbitrary – has been renamed Pandoria in English), a lightning type voiced by Ryo Hirohashi (Kanon in the God Eater series). Both her and Zeke talk in Kansai dialect in Japanese. .

The game will hit the shelves worldwide exclusively for Nintendo Switch on December 1st.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
