With Xenoblade Chronicles 2 performing well on Switch and with impressive profits being recorded by developer Monolith Soft, it wouldn't be all that surprising to see a new major instalment in the series be revealed in the future. While no such announcement has been made by Monolith or Nintendo just yet, one of the game's English voice actors may have given the game (no pun intended) away.
Jenna Coleman, who voices Melia in Xenoblade Chronicles and Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition and is perhaps best known for her roles in TV shows Doctor Who and Victoria, recently sat down for a video interview with a fan. Originally posted to YouTube back in June but spotted by Nintendo Soup just days ago, the clip shows Coleman responding to a fan question about her role in the popular JRPG series.
Here's what she had to say about acquiring the role of Melia:
“I think it was pre-Doctor Who and everything, it was through my voiceover agent and I did it… god, when was the first game? Like ten years ago? It was a long time ago anyway. I did it pre-Doctor Who days and then when they did the second one, they just asked me to come back."
After a brief pause, she went on to say that she "thinks" another game is on the way, eventually noting that she perhaps shouldn't have said that out loud:
“And I think they’re going to do another... Common knowledge? Don’t know...
"Yeah I think they’re going to do another... Don't know if I’m allowed to say that.”
Could it be that another game really is already in the works? Would you be up for a new dose of Xenoblade goodness? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
