Critically acclaimed RPG Xenoblade Chronicles, starring the voice of Jenna Coleman, makes a grand return on Nintendo Switch next year.
Announced during last night’s Nintendo Direct video presentation, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition launches on Nintendo Switch in 2020. Developed by MONOLITHSOFT, the game follows the epic adventures of Shulk as he travels across the bodies of two titanic gods: the Bionis and the Mechonis.
Xenoblade Chronicles began life as a Nintendo Wii game, first released in Japan in 2010. It received widespread critical acclaim, hailed as one of the greatest examples of the RPG genre. Following huge fan demand, it came to Europe in 2011 and North America in 2012. The game also received a handheld port, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, on the New Nintendo 3DS in 2015.
Most notably for Doctor Who fans, Xenoblade Chronicles stars the voice of Jenna Coleman in her first videogame role. In the English dub, Jenna plays Princess Melia Antiqua of the High Entia, a powerful mage who joins your party as a playable character. She can be seen in the final scene of the above trailer, giving a cheeky turn to camera. Although many players will now discover Jenna as Melia the first time in 2020, it actually pre-dates her tenure in the TARDIS as Clara Oswald. Wibbly wobbly, timey wimey…!
