Update: Officially confirmed.

We previously heard that Nintendo will be hosting a panel for Xenoblade Chronicles X at PAX Prime 2015 tomorrow. A reminder was sent out on the company’s Twitter account today, and it seems to reveal an interesting piece of information.

The tweet states that 8-4’s Mark MacDonald will be hosting the Xenoblade Chronicles X panel. That’s important for one big reason. Based on the message, it suggests that 8-4 is involved with the RPG’s localization.

8-4 has worked on a ton of games in the past. On the Nintendo side of things, they helped bring over Fire Emblem: Awakening, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, and Fossil Fighters: Frontier.

“With Disney’s IP treasure chest of powerful and strong female characters, we actually are seeing a split with Infinity that’s more 50% boys and 50% girls,” Vignocchi told The Wall Street Journal.

Disney Infinity 3.0 is out today in Europe, and North America is following behind on Sunday.
