Vegalta, the Shadowed Calamity

Postby (Phantom) Thief » Mon Oct 16, 2017 2:56 pm

Greetings everyone. I have but few simple questions such as

Image

What is that! No, not Ovan's Return, Haseo's New Form, The Key the Twilight or our New Waifu Overlord, but that x foot tall monstronsity inhabiting the game and most importantly why in hamburgers haven't we been talking about it!?

A description from Gematsu reads:

Gematsu.com wrote:A huge, out-of-spec monster shrouded in mystery. It eats up any sort of data it notices, including PCs and objects, and gets bigger and bigger. What kind of dreadful hidden abilities does this monster possess…?


So an unknown monster that can eat data laying at the bottom of a dodgy dungeon. Shouldn't the TFS or the Azure Knights have been all over thing. We don't have much time before the game is released. Thoughts Options, Theories Anything, Please Discuss...

Well the translated info. on the thing's art mentioned it as "crawling like a baby" which implies it's some newly birthed.. something, possibly spawned by Corbenik's Rebirth. The name "Vegalta" only comes up with some Japanese baseball team, so no luck there. Hmm... might it be Amagi's Dummy Epitaph Program?

That would be really interesting. Apparently the Japanese baseball team's name comes from combining the names of the stars Vega and Altair, which would be in line with other star-named characters in G.U. What it means, however, is a mystery...

It's actually the Sendai soccer team, I tried considering the players that we know live in Sendai (Helluger, Silabus), but there's no relation to soccer that I can think of. Soccer does, however, relate to Kite, and Yata named his guild and PC after Japan's soccer league's logo. The Icolo/Arena angle is an interesting thought as well. It could be the dummy avatar, but since Kazumi is pretty much a demicanonical possibility as seen in Link I don't think it would take such a different form or be autonomous. When it comes down to it, they may have just needed something that wasn't AIDA, the Azure Knights, or AIDA, and really had to grasp to get to something.

It could be similar to Legacy, where Kite has to take out a final Data Bug - a whole field - that's the "opposite" of the bracelet much like Cubia and they destroy each other - a sort of fated final bug. Kusabira is very similar to Spoke from that story so that's not impossible. But long story short, Vegalta is definitely pretty different from what we've seen up until now, which I guess is the point.

Somehow this new thing is connected to the game's lore. But I don't know much about the cyclops people - was just able to identify the connection and pull it from the archives.

They're celestial/divine-type monsters.
