@Durakken said in Predicting the next move for the series - PARTIALLY CONFIRMED? NEW GENESIS (FULL Phantasy Star Series including unreleased PSO2 Episode 4-6 Spoilers Inside ):
@Mattwo7 PSO Falz is PSO2's Elder. This we can say with certainty because the enemies/Falzspawn of PSO look the same as Elder's Falzspawn.
The only thing linking PSO and PS classic is the "possible" time travelling aspect at the end of PS3 where the Alissa 3 crash lands on a planet that is supposed to be Ragol... This places Ragol in another time or dimension or both. I choose that he goes back in time setting PS classic after PSO which fits with Coral becoming Earth in the future, because Earthlings attack the Algol system in PS2.
PSO2 and PS3 could happen at the same time.
I believe there was a statement at one time that PSU was supposed to happen at the end of the timeline which works when PSU is also supposed to have an ancient civilization that has died out in its past and its system matches with similar name and everything to the Algol system.
So timeline it all works out that way.
In PSO2... there are only 3 origins Falz... that we know of... that were created pre-game
If PSclassic happened after PSO2 that would be an evolution of or new Falz which we know is possible. PSO2 also establishes that there isn't 1 Profound Darkness even though it talks like there is and likewise the PD is not responsible for creating the Dark Falz. The PD is a non-corporeal entity that can connect to the Akashic records and photoners, enhancing their abilities and knowledge, and manifesting their thoughts and emotions into reality. This is something that Photoners could do already, but obviously have such negative emotions that it caused the Xion clone have a cascade of negative energy which turned it "evil". The Dark Falz would manifest either way with enough photonic energy and negative energy build up. The DFs are then embodiements of negative energy which are strengthened by and strengthen a PD, but are not linked in a real way, but this symbiosis would cause both sides to seek each other out, releasing each other and creating each other.
That all being said, I'm inclined to believe something I came up with the other night after I realized something. I call it the Multiple-Incarnation Theory. Basically, we're all mistaken about how the very universe/multiverse of Phantasy Star works. We're some pretty important things in ep4... like there is a god of the universe and that the earth universe as we know it wasn't always the way that it is now. It had multiple incarnations where the events happened but not the same way or how they were generally remembered. The gist of them happened, which I remembered that explanation but didn't put 2 and 2 together that we're told the exact same thing of the Akashic Records world of Omega... And then we kept on getting told that there are elements on each version that are passed along but each of the games are their own universe... I think, that's not quite true, but close, especially when you think of PSO and PSO2. Everything we know about PSO can fit into the story of PSO2 if you just take the gist of what happened and the general outline. Its when we take the details and the length of time into account that there becomes an issue...
So my idea is that the time line of Phantasy Star as a whole happened in exactly the way it is told to us, but between games the incarnation changes so its remembered as having happened differently. We were the 3 in PSO we sealed that Dark Falz on Ragol and that is now Naverius and Elder and someone else. It's the same events, just scrambled a little and that is happening in universe, not because different universe or something like that out of canon, but because in canon the entire structure of the universe as it is now has changed so that it once resembled the older game but now is the new game.
Look As cool as all of this sounds. Only the PSO games are seemingly connected with each other. The OG games doesn't really have anything to do with them except for being in the same franchise.
