Xenoblades Chronicles 2 received a brand new trailer at the start of Nintendo’s E3 2017 presentation, and oh boy… that voice acting.

The follow-up to the Wii U JRPG is shaping up nicely, but its voice acting leaves a lot to be desired. Featuring some of the oddest faux-British accents we’ve ever heard, despite all of the intense action happening on-screen, it was difficult to not be distracted by its oddball Western dub.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will be the next big role-playing game released on the Switch, following launch title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. With the original game being one of the largest released on the Wii U, we’re looking forward to getting lost in its massive open-world while on the move in the Switch’s portable mode.
