Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country – All the details, pictures, videos from official Twitter account
Ahead of the release of Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country (the story DLC for Xenoblade Chronicles 2), on September 14th (Expansion Pass owners) / September 21st (retail stand-alone version), the developers at Monolith Soft. are going to share various details and pictures (maybe even videos!) via the official Twitter account (like they did for the main game, last year).
On this page, you will find all the details, pictures and videos shared via the official Twitter account, so that you can have every single thing available at the same place! Do note that you may end up finding spoilers for the main game below, so proceed with caution if you’re still playing it! For more details about Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country, make sure to check out these posts:
- Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~The Golden Country (story DLC) revealed, out on September 14th (details, retail release)

Today, Monolith Soft. shared some details and screenshots for teams in Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country. Teams are made of 3 people: the Driver, and two Blades. Unlike the main game (where you can freely switch Blades, even from one Driver to another), the teams are fixed, so the strong bond and cooperation between the Driver and their Blades is key to victory in battle.
Today, Monolith Soft. shared some pictures and details for Hugo (voiced by Akira Ishida), from the Empire of Mor Ardain (which was a rising military state at the time). He stands on the battlefield, carrying the very feelings of the Ardainian people on his shoulders. His battle style consists in protecting his allies by taking enemy attacks in their stead (basically, a “tank”). If that character feels familiar to you, there’s a good reason for that: he’s actually the ancestor of Emperor Niall, that appears in the main story of Xenoblade Chronicles 2!
Hugo’s Blades are none other than Brighid (voiced by Shizuka Itou) and Aegaeon (voiced by Shuuichi Ikeda), who have been handed down to the various Emperors of the Empire of Mor Ardain for generations. Those two are always there to support their Driver, who always tend to put himself in danger.
Today, Monolith Soft. shared some pictures and details for Minoth (voiced by Shinichiro Miki). This rather austere-looking man is one of Addam’s Blades; his attribute is Dark, and he uses dual pistols in battle. His core crystal has a rather unique shape and design. As for his name, it’s strangely familiar… Some players probably remember it from somewhere (*wink wink*)! Oh, and in case you’re wondering: yes, you will be able to battle with him!
Today, Monolith Soft. shared some pictures and details for Addam (voiced by Yuusuke Handa), one of the key characters of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (where he’s referred to as a lengedary hero) and Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country (where he’s actually playable). He may be a Prince of Torna, and the 4th in line for the throne, but he’s actually pretty hot-blooded and doesn’t really behave with the decorum that befits his status.
We also have details about a character you should be pretty familiar with if you’re reading this post: Mythra, the Aegis (voiced by Shino Shimoji). Pyra doesn’t exist yet in the era Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country takes place in, so it’s only Mythra that you will get to see. Yes, she already was a bona fide tsundere back then! The shape of her core crystal is slightly different than in the main game.
Today, Monolith Soft. shared some pictures and details for Malos (voiced by Yuichi Nakamura), a very special Blade known as the Aegis, who threatens world peace with his immensurable power. He’s a pretty mysterious individual, who wants to destroy humanity… though we don’t really know why. Who knows what lies behind the blunt words of his…
Today, Monolith Soft. shared some pictures and details for Haze (voiced by Hayami Saori), who is Lora’s second Blade. Her attribute is Wind, and she’s focused on healing. She looks pretty much the same as Lora, but her clothes and personality are quite different from her Driver’s.
Today, the following was shared:
- a picture of the Download Card and the retail version of Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country in Japan;
- some pictures and details about Jin (voiced by Takahiro Sakurai), the protagonist of the story DLC. Even back then, he was already known as the strongest Blade in Torna, and often referred to as “Torna’s Treasure”. But at that time, he truly disliked conflicts, and had a really gentle personality… quite the opposite of how he appears in the main game!
- some pictures and details about Lora (voiced by Hayami Saori), Jin’s Driver. She’s no damsel in distress: she’s a strong woman, who served as mercenary during the Aegis War. Jin and her have been together ever since she was but a child.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country (Switch) comes out on September 14th (Expansion Pass owners) / September 21st (retail stand-alone version).
