Nintendo and Good Smile Company have announced a new figurine based on one of the main characters from Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

Featured above as well as below, the 1/7th scale figuring is based on Pyra (Japanese: Homura), one of the main characters in the game and one of the central Blades you acquire.

Here are some more shots of the figurine:

Pre-order are launching tomorrow, December 26th, via Good Smile. Pricing and shipping information aren’t confirmed, however the new figure is expected to ship next year.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is now available for the Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, you can find our thorough review for the game here (we highly recommend it!).

    Add to that the biting slightly into the flesh the thong string does and that bit of cheek spilling out from the shorts too. Exquisite.

    Was XC2 censored in the west in any way? I wasn’t paying attention.

    No graphics were censored. And the dialogue is mostly intact. There is one Heart to Heart that I noticed had different text between the JP audio and English subtitles (and thus English dub). They changed a reference from “bikini armor” to a “bunny suit” for Poppi/Hana. I suppose that’s up to you if that’s censorship or just changing something to make it more understandable for an English-speaking audience. Or it could just be Nintendo Europe trying to avoid any mention of the flat chested loli-bot from wearing a bikini. Nevermind she’s effectively topless in her small form anyway.

    Wow, a game company actually worked with a decent company to make their figure?

    That skindentation is beautiful. Good Smile is killing it this week with this, Santa Alter Jeanne, and 9K yen Kiss-Shot.

    Dialogue changes don’t bother me much. But this is good news to me. Surprising, as well. Thanks.

    … now, how lost will I be story-wise if I haven’t played a Xenoblade game before?

    I wish she’s wear a normal underwear instead of short (or is it hotpants?). So she will be wearing normal underwear on top of her V-shaped underwear.

    I dont understand why we dont have to put up with this in anime land, yet videogame land will pointlessly change the entire meaning of a conversation in the name of “localization.”

    the worst are the name changes: why bother changing the names at all if you’re going to pull crap like changing shin to jin or an obviously japanese as fuck character like basara to percival of all things?

    I understand where you’re coming from and I generally would agree, but the problem with Shin is the name is spelled the same as the part of your leg, that might confuse some people! why someone would be called after a piece of human anatomy.

    I can take changing of honorifics because they just sound awkward in English. And if you’re listening to the original JP audio with the English subtitles, you can hear them anyway and get the context that way. And I get changing Homura’s name to Pyra to keep the fire connotation but the random name changes make no sense. Byakko to Dromarch for example. The latter means nothing to English speakers so why change it?

    There were many names that weren’t even hard to say and they only changed it cause those Brits couldn’t say simple shit like Hana so they named her fucking Poppi so I agree. Rex rex is also very stupid over just saying big bro among many things. ffs they changed Laura to Lora. (or JP Jin says Laura anyway)

    Anime land has fansubbers and rampant piracy that have long applied pressure to official localizers to actually release a quality product that isn’t horribly butchered. Fan translations and patching are much harder to do with video games because of their nature, particularly with console games, and very few people actually dabble with such. Thus, localizers for video games know they can get away with much more and fans have to suck it up.

    The funny thing is that your response sounds like more of a spoiler than what he said. “connections to the first game” could just be small references but you made it explicit that it’s something important.

    I noticed one character that’s called “Sakura” in the Japanese voice acting, but has a completely unrelated name in the translation. That’s a pretty common name with anime/games, so them changing it is odd.

    Well you see duct tape only works if you actually have something to apply the duct tape to. I’m way too flat for outfits like these.

    Well spoilers? If you play the game you don’t see anything about x1 until the last 3 chapters as if it has no connections to the first one…so yeah :/

    I think legit only one character’s name would have been hard to say but even then this is a Nintendo move if anything. (looks at Fire Emblem)

    Freaking social Puritans. They’re perverts in denial of their inner natures, so they try and ban anything that might appeal to them. You don’t have to have a dirty mind to appreciate her costume.

    I wonder if Monolith would consider adding shorts that are several sizes too small as DLC for Pyra?
