I kind of want Samatha Dakin to voice her.

@Soul-dragon So it wasn't her...and that honestly disappoints me because of how unfitting Catrin's voice is. The character needed something cute with a harsh edge and her voice was just so deep. How come every female character in a video game that I get excited for/love ends up sounding bad? First it was Hinoka than Shirogane than Mia and then Soleil and now her. Heck it even looks like Micaiah is going to go down the 'awful voice' route as well! Why does this always end up happening...

I don't see a problem with not sounding stereotypically cutesy as long as the actual acting works for the character. I don't have a problem with Catrin's actual performance and I think it's important to remember that not every female character needs to sound stereotypically cutesy. Her voice is nothing out of the ordinary for young women.

@NCZ I agree 100% with you. Young looking female characters don't have to have high-pitched or cutesy voices. They can have deeper voices than expected since that's more realistic.

I really think a lot of it is just the minor cultural clash between people who are more used to American anime/game dubs. Japanese audio often tends to be more exaggerated and over-the-top, with American dubs often following that. Whereas Xenoblade 1 and 2 go for a more naturalistic approach. Honestly, Nia especially is one of the most refreshing casting choices for me specifically because it's not as on-the-nose as the original or what a US dub would probably take.

Not going to lie I really like her character design and she looks promising to say the least.
