Xenoblade Chronicles X

Kotaku has a very interesting article up covering the localization of Xenoblade Chronicles X, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and Nintendo’s localizations in general. The site spoke with Monolith Soft CEO Tetsuya Takahashi, Nintendo’s Genki Yokota, and Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime.

Takahashi himself commented on the changes that were made for Xenoblade Chronicles X in the west, like removing a bikini for one of the characters (Lin). We also have confirmation that Nintendo of Europe is handling Xenoblade Chronicles 2 like the original Wii game instead of Nintendo of America. There’s talk here about Nintendo’s localization process as well.

A couple of months ago, we posted some Xenoblade Chronicles X images from the art book that released in Japan at the end of last year. What we put up at the time wasn’t the entire set though. We’re finishing that off today with the last batch of images and translations.

First, the last round of concept art:

And now the translations for the various pages:

My Nintendo added a trio of Miitomo rewards in all regions earlier today. And in Europe, a couple of extra prizes were added.

If you have a European My Nintendo account, you can spend Gold Points on Xenoblade Chronicles X and Xenoblade Chronicles 3D. The two discounts require 140 and 110 points respectively.


Towards the very end of last year, a special Xenoblade Chronicles X art book came out in Japan. This features over 300 pages of goodness showing characters, enemies, Dolls, and much more.

One section of the book is particularly interesting. This is the “Unidentified Material” portion that mainly highlights concepts with art that didn’t make it into the final game. Below, you can find some of these images along with translations for the different pages.

Protagonist (name undecided)

A rough sketch of a young man in his late twenties is found! He ended up as “protagonist” since the name was undecided, but the personality feels different from the avatar of Xenoblade Chronicles X. So that means this character is…!?

Just introduced as “Father”, this rough sketch of a mysterious character has rough facial hair. The title probably doesn’t mean age[*], so is he someone’s father?
[* The used Japanese word may mean a father or an old man in general]

Reina Sakuraba

This is a rough sketch of a beautiful character who has an aura of a heroine. One can imagine that she is related to Sakuraba Industries because of her surname…
