Good Smile Company is going to release this amazing figure rendition of Pyra from the Nintendo Switch game, Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
Up to now, I still haven’t finished the game due to my work schedule (heck, I’m not even finished playing Zelda lol) but I’m really hoping I can get back to it soon! Almost all of my friends who got the game on the switch already finished it and they’ve been saying a lot of good things that will happen within the game (no spoilers please!)
The figure was based on the original character design of artist Masatsugu Saito and I can atest that this figure’s overall looks is accurate. As always, I’m sure GSC will also release the other blades in the future. Figure is slated for December 2018, ¥19,800. More info about the figure below.

Pyra (Japanese: ホムラ, Homura) is the heroine of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She is a Special Legendary Blade who grants tremendous fire-elemental power to her Driver, Rex. As a Blade, she is immortal and has the ability to recover from injuries quickly; however, she will die if the Core Crystal on her chest is destroyed, or when Rex dies. Pyra and Rex embark on a journey to search for Elysium, and Rex is devoted to protecting her. Pyra was designed by Masatsugu Saitō, the lead character designer for the game.
