05.03.10 - 5:53 PM

More details have surfaced on the playable characters in Monolith Soft's upcoming RPG Xenoblade (whose tentative North American title still, technically, remains Monado: Beginning of the World - this could still change).

* Shulk - Age: 17, Gender: Male, Race: Homs. An orphan who discovers that he can wield the legendary blade, Monado. He sets off on a journey to exact revenge on the Kishin soldiers who attacked his village.

* Fiorun - Age: 18, Gender: Female, Race: Homs. The younger sister of Dunban, and childhood friend to Shulk. She has a nurturing personality.

* Dunban - Age: 30, Gender: Male, Race: Homs. Known as a hero to his race, he previously wielded Monado and used it to slay his enemies. A year before the story begins, he sustained a major injury in battle and is still recovering.

* Rein - Age: 18, Gender: Male, Race: Homs. Another childhood friend of Shulk. He is a member of the Defense Force in Colony 9, which is where he lives with Shulk, Fiorun, and Dunban.

* Carna - Age: 21, Gender: Female, Race: Homs. A master of projectile weapons that serves in the Colony 6 Defense Force.

* Melia - Age: ??, Gender: Female, Race: Hienter. A young girl who is skilled with ether attacks (Xenoblade's form of magic). She lives in a futuristic society on the god Kyoshin.

* Riki - Age: ??, Gender: Male, Race: Nopon. A juvenile member of a non-human race who function primarily as merchants. He makes dubious claims about being a legendary hero.

The world of Xenoblade is comprised of two gods locked in stasis after a climactic battle. Two civilizations, one machine-based and the other organic, reside on their colossal bodies.

Xenoblade is currently scheduled for a June 10, 2010 release in Japan. A North American release date has not been finalized.
