Xenoblade Chronicles 2 introduces the rare Blade Uka

Posted on October 13, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Nintendo has unveiled another rare Blade for Xenoblade Chronicles 2. On the official Japanese Twitter account, we’re given a first look at Uka.

Uka is designed by Nakaba Higurashi, was largely involved with the Baten Kaitos games. M·A·O. (Mao Ichimichi) voices the character.

Here’s a look at Uka:

    It’s not a bad design but her art and how they’ve even adapted that art into a 3D model clearly won’t match up with how the rest of the characters look and that might bother me just a teeeensy bit.

    • uh because her art is 2D not 3D.

      • FrostedFireFly

        That’s….. besides the point? I’m talking about how she’s modelled in-game compared to every other character in-game. Rex’s art is in 2D. You’ve completely lost me in what you’re trying to prove.

        • If you can’t understand the difference between characters 2D art vs 3D model then that your fault.

          • FrostedFireFly

            No, that’s nothing to do with it. You’ve been entirely missing my point in both comments. I know all about 2D and 3D art but you’re making no sense in correlation to my comment.

            I’m talking about the TRANSLATION of 2D art into 3D art and if YOU don’t understand that… I mean I can TRY and explain it to you but you can barely even explain yourself it seems.

    God she looks weird in-game. Her 2d art didn’t translate very well.

    • MusubiKazesaru

      Maybe it’s because she’s drawn with a pretty flat looking face, particular due to the nose type.

    The nose dosent fit well, maybe a regular human nose would be better.

  • Vigilante_blade

    Oh god, that design. My eyes, they burn.

  • Yay, MAO~.

    Also, I don’t dislike the design, but it always cracks me up when people try to make these slightly anthro or animal-like designs, but it’s just a human with a barely animal nose. ^u^;

  • hi v3.0

    Easily my least favorite blade of the game so far..All the other character designs I love but this..no…Not gonna use her in the game

  • R.Z.

    On the one hand all the collaborations make it patchwork-ey; on the other hand, given the regular chara designer … maybe it’s not a bad thing we get to see less of his stuff.
