The official Xenoblade Chronicles X website has just been updated with new information about the game regarding the story as well as some information on three characters. Please note that these translations are very loose using Google translate so take that for what you will:
Elma: Team leader of the private military organization “Blade”. Calm disposition, has insight and good judgment, and is respected by members of the “Blade”. On Earth, she had served as a colonel of integrated government forces special operations vehicle instructor Corps (commonly known as “Doll Corps”).
Lynlee: Mechanic, a member of the private military organization “Blade”. Young while also adept in mechanical engineering of the combat robot called “Doll”. She is 13.
Tatsu: This one is a little harder to make sense of. But it says he’s a member of the Nopon group who are native to the planet Mira.
There is also some story information which I won’t try to Google translate since there is a lot there. But it’s interesting to note that there seems to be a date of July 2054 listed for when the story takes place.
Here is a translation attempt by our manager Will Whitehurst:
July 2054 AD. On Earth, a battle between alien civilizations has unfolded. This battle exceeded the standards of Earth’s engineering. For whatever reason, the Earth was trampled upon, and the ground became scorched earth. The Earth could sense the after effects of these battles in advance. The governments were integrated, and the Earth Species Pan-Immigration Plan was enacted. From the world’s numerous major cities came interstellar immigration boats that flew into the sky.
4.5 billion years later, life broke out from the Earth. However, many of the immigration boats, in the midst of escaping their centers of gravity, crash-landed, and the formerly peaceful and quiet boats became quite small in number. The one remaining boat was the White Whale.
There have been wandering travels for two years after Earth’s collapse. From the battle came good fortune and survival on Earth, but the warring alien civilizations’ pursuit forces have taken notice.
The army, prepared to die, accepted their challenge, and with one great hero’s service, the pursuit forces have stepped back, but the combat did severe damage to the White Whale’s engine. The White Whale, which has lost its ability to fly, has been caught in an unknown planet’s gravity, and the hull has collapsed.
Two months have passed since…
