Monoloth Soft is continuing to trickle down images and videos of its upcoming JRPG Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and today we get another round.

First of all we get to see Hikari, or Mythra as she is called in the English version of the game. We also see how Rex can swap between her and Pyra at any time.

If you’re wondering, the whole set had their name changed in English, with Pyra being called Homura in Japanese. Together with Mythra they are the two forms of the “Aegis” which actually was called “Heavenly Holy Grail” in Japanese. By now you should probably be used to the fact that Nintendo’s western arms get “creative” with localization.

Moving on, we get to see the two cute rare blades Mikumari and Seori, both designed by Xenosaga series character designer CHOCO. Their elements are respectively water and ice, and they’re voiced by Ayane Sakura (Eleonora Yumizuru in Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE and Iroha Isshiki in My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU) and super-popular Ayako Kawasumi (Saber in the Fate series, Atoli in .hack//G.U., Kokoro in the Dead or Alive series, Gwendolyn in Odin Sphere and a gazillion of other characters).

You can check them all out in the assets below, and if you want to read more, you can check out the ton of recent news, images and videos about Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

The game will release worldwide exclusively for Nintendo Switch on December 1st.
