We've got some sad news today if you're a fan of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. The voice of the character Bana, Stephen Critchlow, has passed away at the age of 54.

Critchlow's colleagues at the production company, Big Finish, were the first to share this information. The British talent was credited for his work in theatre, television, radio, film and voice acting. Apart from the Xenoblade series, he contributed to games like Dragon Quest, World of Warcraft, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Fable 2, The Witcher 2, Inazuma and much more.

One of his most well-known roles in the realm of video games was as Count Edmont de Fortemps in the Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward expansion. He was also in shows like Torchwood and Doctor Who.

On behalf of the Nintendo Life community, our thoughts are with Stephen's family and friends during this difficult time.
