I’m reading through Kao Megura’s FAQ on MvC2, and I come across a translation of the game’s plot that I had never read before. I will post it, and am sure most of you have already come across this, but let me know if you have heard of any other details on what the game is supposed to be about story-wise since this writing. Maybe someone has heard of these references in other games? Also, feel free to post your thoughts on what this light riddle is supposed to mean:
"Armor of Erosion. What should not be more than a fairy tale. What
should not be awaken forever. But the end has come. Wheel of fortune
resurrected it from limbo of legends. Hideous wave from the armor has
mutated fishes, and unholy wind from the sea killed surface lives.
“When doomful shadow covers hope, warriors join. In search of the
Abyss, which is supposed to bring everything back to the Sea of
Armor of Erosion = Some reference to Abyss?
‘Wheel of fortune’ = just as it says?
‘limbo of legends’ = dreams? lore? involving some sort of magic?
‘hideous wave’ = abyss’ 2nd/3rd form reference?
‘mutated fishes’ = result of above…hence presence of Ruby and Amingo?
‘warriors join’ = the marvel cast…even villians…this is some powerful shit story-wise and the game slept on how big it could have been
‘Sea of Genesis’ = ?..simply meaning back to the beginning or how the worlds used to be
As Kao mentions, and as most of you will likely agree, it could just be spasmic bullshit needed to spew out another vs series. Regardless, interesting stuff that, again, could have been pretty leet if worked out right in the game.
