At the time of writing, the Xenoblade Chronicles entry includes the following: "Notably, most of them speak with working-class accents (especially Reyn), whereas the standard 'received pronunciation' does not appear to exist."

I don't think this is accurate. To my (British) ears, Shulk and Sharla are both on the RP end of the London-RP continuum; Dunban has the RP accent typical of a military officer; and Melia's is cut-glass upper-class RP, as lampshaded by Reyn and Sharla during a discussion.
