Xenoblade Chronicles Lacks Japanese Voice Option

It’s come to a surprise that Xenoblade Chronicles may not offer a fan favorite option found on the Wii version of the game. Coming from reports from website Nintendo Life, whom had the opportunity to get play the game on the New 3DS. 

While this is a disappointment to some fans who prefer listening to the game in the Japanese dub, you’ll only be able to play it in the English, with the British accents making the strong remarks in the game.

Although it’s just a thought and nothing official, it’s most likely why this got done.
