In this new LEGO Star Wars game, the voice of Shulk Adam Howden voices an NPC called “Disco Director”. When engaging in a conversation with him, his character says “Now this is a party! I’m really feeling it”. As Nintendo fans will know, this is a throwback to Adam’s character Shulk in the Xenoblade series. You might have heard it in Smash Bros. as well.
I worked on LSWTSS. When I heard that Adam Howden would be providing his voice to the game, I tried to work in a Xenoblade reference somewhere.
I managed to get this one in on the last puzzle I worked on.
I wasn’t in the booth when he was recording, but I had an email from the script editor at the time. He said that Adam was initially unsure about the line, but after being told that it was a Xenoblade reference, he nailed it. He was happy to hear that it was indeed a Xenoblade reference.
