Nintendo has, it seems, been listening to a consistently vocal part of its fanbase in recent times. Plenty have wanted the option to have the 'original' Japanese voice-track as an option in major games, and that's started to - gradually - happen. A post-launch update to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild added a broad range of audio tracks including Japanese, and it was a free launch day download for Fire Emblem Warriors.

For those that want Japanese voice actors in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, the good news is that free day one DLC will make that possible. Nintendo released a new story trailer with the Japanese track to give you a taste for what it'll offer.

In addition the game will go up for pre-purchase and pre-load on the Switch eShop today, so if you're keen to get started as soon as the game launches that could be a tempting option. 

Let us know whether you'll choose to use the Japanese voiceover when Xenoblade Chronicles 2 launches on 1st December.
