YouTube user “iYakku” has posted the Xenoblade Chronicles X Battle Presentation with English subtitles. Narration and important names of sections have been translated, but a fully subtitled version will come out in a few days. For now, watch the current version below.

Update: Now over! You can find all of the translations after the break.

Today’s presentation will kick off at 8 AM ET / 5 AM PT. It should last about 29 minutes.

Today’s Xenoblade Chronicles X Twitter update was brief, and not overly interesting. However, director Koh Kojima did share a neat nugget regarding tomorrow’s Battle Presentation.

Kojima wrote:

Looking forward to tomorrow’s Battle Presentation! We’re actually animating Elma, Lyn, and Tatsu – who will be the presenters – specially and specifically for the video. We thought about this a lot, without meaning to; changing their positions around and so on.

Tomorrow’s Xenoblade Chronicles X presentation will take place at 8 AM ET / 5 AM PT. We’ll post a stream on the site before it goes live.
