Voice actress for Pyra in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 records a special message for a fan going through a rough time

A truly heartwarming story

Skye Bennett provided the voice for both Pyra and Mythra in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and she reprised her role as Pyra for a special fan.

Twitter user ATGAMER777 has been feeling quite down lately, and was sorely in need of some inspiration. ATGAMER777 is a big fan of Pyra, which is why a friend secretly reached out to Skye to have a special message recorded. You can hear the full message in the tweet above.

It figures

Good Smile's KOS-MOS Re: figurine is coming along quite nicely! We have seen plenty of prototype pics, but now we have the fully painted version to check out. The figurine is now available for preorder, and is set to ship sometime in May 2020. Check out more pics here.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 fan puts clocks in 4,320 hours of playtime

That would be 6 months!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 offers up hours and hours of content for players to enjoy, all set across a very expansive game world. It's very easy to put in hundreds of hours on the game, but how about a few thousand? That's what one Japanese player has done, clocking in at 4,320 hours so far. That would be 6 months straight if you never stopped playing!

The Japanese superfan points out that he had some sort of health issue that kept him rather confined to his home, and lead to him playing a lot of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. At least it helped him pass the time!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 at 1.73 million sold worldwide as of March 2019

A strong reception

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 turned out to be a bigger hit than Nintendo and Monolith Soft were expecting. The game has done quite well for itself, moving 1.73 million units worldwide as of March 2019. This information was confirmed by Monolith Soft’s Tetsuya Takahashi in an interview shared today.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 character designer sends out cryptic tweet about VR


Saito Masatsugu, character designer for Xenoblade Chronicles 2, is stirring up some speculation with the above tweet. Both The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are getting updates to support Nintendo Labo VR, but could other games see the same? With Masatsugu tweeting out a very simple 'VR,' fans are wondering if something is in the works, or it's just the hopes of Masatsugu. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 in VR would certainly be a sight to behold, so I'm definitely hoping there's more to this tweet than just riling up fans.

More pics of Good Smile's Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Mythra figurine (plus Pyra)

Mythra is out now!




The Good Smile Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Pyra figurine launched back in Dec. 2018, so that's old news by now. The Good Smile Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Mythra figurine launched this month, so that's worthy looking at a bit more! Obviously the figurine looks absolutely fantastic, but as you can see through the images above, it's even better if you have Pyra to go with it!

These custom Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Joy-Con are absolutely gorgeous


If there were going to be a special Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Switch bundle, having Joy-Con like this would make it a surefire hit. This design is fan-made by Extreme Consoles, but I'll be damned if it doesn't look like a professional job. What an amazing custom design!

More pictures of Good Smile's KOS-MOS Re: figurine surface




Over the weekend, we shared news of Good Smile Company releasing a figurine of KOS-MOS Re: from Xenoblade Chronicles 2. We had just one pic of the figurine to showcase, but now we have a bunch more that show KOS-MOS Re: from all different angles! Not surprisingly, it seems like Good Smile is putting a lot of effort into this one to make sure it's as close to the in-game representation as possible.

A look inside the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks Alrest Record art book
