@Jamesmor said in Will Matoi and Quna be returning for New Genesis?:
@Laep Idola happens in a alternate universe and she is not the only one there, even Io is in Idola now so don't what happens there to the main line of the series.
Nothing has really been said about when/where Idola happens relative to PSO2 aside from that ARKS visited and colonized that setting about a millennium before the events of the game. It could be directly relevant to NGS, or it could be nearly-irrelevant (like PS Nova is to PSO2)--it depends on where SEGA wants to go with it.
Either way, in regards to the original question... hard to say at this point. NGS' plot incorporating the setting of Vandor in the future isn't impossible (especially since that planet is already dealing with a lot of Falspawn stuff), but on the other hand, Idola could just get the PS Nova treatment of existing and being canon, but never being referenced in NGS' plot. Outside that, SEGA could always bring back Matoi and Quna through other means, but that's a realm of theorizing that I'm not prepared for with the info we have lol.
