Question - have we seen any design sketches for the characters, or just in-game renders? I'm wondering if they were all effectively created in-engine, using a variant of the character creation tool we've seen demoed for the protagonist. That might explain their rather bland look, in comparison to Xenoblade's designed-on-paper-first characters.

You're right, I haven't seen any character art for this, it doesn't look like any was used as reference material and I think the character design has suffered terribly as a result.

For me it's mainly their heads and faces rather than the design as a whole if I had to pinpoint it. Utterly characterless, the lot of them. At least I'll only be seeing the back of their haircuts for the most part.

I've said it before, but i'll say it again: the lack of features and simplistic modelling on the faces won't make a jot of difference in-game - the majority of the time the characters will be minuscule on screen, certainly when backdropped by the vast panoramic scenery and super-size-me dinosaur wildlife.

The following video roundup details come from Cheesemeister3k twitter

- Congrats on passing your Doll certification exam. You're now a pilot. You're responsible to support NLA and explore Planet Mira.
- Doll types. Doug knows a lot about Dolls. Light, Middle, Heavy types. Light type: HP is low, evasion is high. Middle: balanced.
- Heavy type: HP is high, agility is low. Which to choose is up to you. They're not just to look at. Let's see them in action.'
- Dolls can all transform into wheeled vehicles: motorcycles, cars, treaded vehicles. Transform into flying machines as well.
- Dolls can be customized to your liking by buying parts, though it can be expensive. Dolls also use weapons and arts in battle.
- Hand weapons are used in auto-attacks. Arm weapons include beam shields and vulcans. Spare Weapons incl. beam sabres, granades.
- Back weapons can be pulled out for high-powered attacks. Shoulder weapons are even more powerful still. Some aren't in shops.
- It makes you want to customize the strongest possible Doll, no? Customize the color and name. Dolls require fuel, even w/ arts.
- If you run out of Doll fuel, you won't be able to use arts, and will fall from the sky if flying. Fuel recovered slowly.
- Additional fuel can be bought in NLA. Manage it carefully. Catch enemies with your Doll to prevent them from moving, do combos.
