Anruri, it's me Neko and I love Namco games, especially the games that connect into one or more universes and various crossovers. But the crossover between various Namco franchises that stood out to me the most was the cancelled RTS game called New Space Order. This game featured the various worlds of various interplanetary nations which mainly featured elements from my all-time favorite Namco game, Xevious. It also features various aspects from various Namco franchises as it was considered to be the Namco Space Opera, including the worlds of Tales of Eternia, Mirai Ninja, and the Strangereal-Galaxian Universe. The game's crossover concept is Fardraut Pitarmil Folsa Repcke, meaning the Fardraut Story Begins Again. What's interesting to me is that there are theme songs that were sung in their respective language; Military Empire theme sung in Xevi, State of Feudal Dynasty theme sung in Cantonese, and the UGSF theme is sung by a choir. One of my favorite interplanetary nations besides the UGSF is the Sacred Religious State.
Not only did it have the elements of Tales of Eternia, but it also is the future world of Eternia itself. It had a rich history which began with Nereid creating Vatenkeist and culminated into Celestia tian Farous. What caught my attention four years ago is the theory that was written in Japanese and I took the time out of my life to translate it to English. What astonished me is that there are both a Multiverse explanation and the Same World Continuation explanation and that the timeline is neatly created to explain the world of Tales of Eternia. I was also astonished that they theory mentioned Xevious and the UGSF and how they releate with each other. It was something that I could not forget along with the fact that I want to share it. So I wrote it down on paper, took some photos and sent it on Twitter which is.........not of the best quality I think but it's still worth it. Now four years later and I've become pretty confident to want to share with various Namco communities to bring up a discussion on a crossover that is seemingly forgotten by all. Without any further ado, here is the translated theory of the relations Tales of Eternia, Xevious, and Strangereal-Galaxian (USGF) Universes. I'll put the links in the reply.
1. Multiverse Explanation
10,000 years B.T. (Before Tales of Eternia): Nereid appears in the Eternian space located in what is now called the Sacred Religious State (Celestia tian Farous) and created the spiritual world of Vatenkeist. (ToE)
8000 B.T.: Seyfert appears and creates the material worlds of Celestia and Inferia. (ToE)
3800 B.T.: Seyfert founded the governing body of the Melnics Planetary Alliance (referred to as the Melnics Civilization) with a dual capital planet followed by many other planets as its territories. They were each connected with a spatial-temporal connection line and that the Melnics (Ancient Inferians and Ancient Celestians) can move quickly between planets from lightyears away. When one looks at the surface, one can see the surface of another planet and can travel as one pleases. It is a Star Line that manipulated space-time and can move organic matter. Thus, it was more advanced than the Star Line of New Space Order (an unreleased real time strategy game by Namco) thousands of years later. The scientific abilities were supported by the existence of the "Ultimate Reservoir of Knowledge," an event controller that has a high manisfestation of ESP (Extrasensory Perception) called "Farous". It was divided into ten units, five of which were deployed in the orbit of the dual home planet. (NSO) A total of ten or five for two planets is a reminiscent of the Great Craymel Spirits. Farous means, "Sixth Star," in the Xevi Language. This means that the Knowledge of Farous was used to make an armor of an Ilu Dorkto (meaning Cold Power in Xevi) material which could be a GAMP Replica. However, the Greater Craymels of Tales of Eternia do not feel like they were GAMP Replicas.
2300 B.T.: According to Inferian folklore, Nereid's appearance caused the Aurora War between Celestia and Inferia. (ToE)
2200 B.T.: Seyfert sealed Nereid and his spiritual, Vatenkeist, which ends the interstellar war. (ToE)
1900 B.T.: 300 Years laters, the Melnics Civilization collapsed. With this, all contact between Celestia and Inferia ceased until the events of Tales of Eternia. (ToE)
At this time in the Strangereal-Galaxian Universe (UGSF), the Divine Punishment War occurs and its history branches out. This civil war would end with a devastating damage. Firstly, the second star of the dual planet was destroyed followed by the loss of all territorial stars. Worse still, nine of the Farous units were lost. It does seem that Seyfert did or could not seal Vatenkeist space in time. The main star of the Sacred Religious State is TOE's second world, Celestia. (NSO) In the Melnics Lananguage, Celestia is Andin (HERE) and Inferia is Hedi (FAR). (TeE) Therefore, it is most likely that Inferia was destroyed in the midst of the Divine Punishment Civil War. However, most people who were born in the Sacred Religious State after the civil war had Inferian appearances and rarely and Celestians.
Afterwards, in the universe of Eternia, the stages of Fardraut was prepared on Earth in the Earthian year of 2000 as planned. War with Xevious occured. In the UGSF universe, Celestia's orbit changed due to the star system's gavitational balance from the collapse of the second star, Inferia. During the New Space Order War which lasted form 2845 to 3210, Fardraut will be ready and Solvalou will be operational at that time.
In other words, the events of Tales of Eternia and Xevious talked about the same world. What could the events of the UGSF, ToE, and Xevious talk about a parallel universe?
2. Continuation World Explanation
10000 B.T. (Before the events of Tales of Eternia): Nereid appears in the space where today's Sacred Religious State (Celestia tian Farous) is located and creates the spiritual world of Vatenkeist.
8000 B.T.: Seyfert appears and creates the physical world of Eternia.
3800 B.T.: Seyfert founded the Melnics Planetary Alliance (known as the Melnics Civilization). Van Eltia is also constructed during the Melnics Civilization.
2300 B.T.: According to Inferian Folklore, Nereid's appearance causes the Auroral War between Celestia and Inferia.
2200 B.T.: Seyfert seals Vatenkeist and ends the interplanetary war.
2000 B.T.: Seyfert later seals Nereid in the Regulus Knoll of Inferia.
1900 B.T.: The Melnics Planetary Alliance collapsed.
Within the first year of the events of Tales of Eternia, the Seyfert Ring was destroyed which separates the planets of Inferia and Celestia, saving the two planets from the Great Fall. (ToE)
Form this ponit, thousands of years later, the Ancient Civilization before the Sacred Religious State was established. The official language of this Ancient Civilization and Sacred Religious State is Melnics. It had a dual planet as its mother planet which is followed by many other planets as its territory. These planets were connected by the high-performance star lines that can distort space-time continuum and move living organism (organic matter). When one looks at the sky, one can see the surface of another planet and can travel as one pleases. The scientific abilities were supported by the existence of the event controlling bodies that have a high manisfestation of ESP, making themselves the "Ultimate Reservoir of Knowledge." Farous was divided into ten units, five of which were deployed in a satellite orbit for their dual mother planet.
Then, a civil war called, the Divine Punishment War, occurs. Details are unknown but the civil war ended with a devastating damage such as the collapse of one side of the dual mother planet, the loss of all territorial stars, and the destruction of the nine Farous units. The main star of the Sacred Religious State is Celestia. (NSO) In the Melnics Language, Celestia is Andin (HERE) and Inferia is Hedi (FAR). Therefore, it is likely that Inferia was destroyed in the Divine Punishment War. Furthermore, there would be shifts in the gravitational balance due to the second planet's destruction which caused Celestia's orbit to change. The Fardraut preparation was completed and during the New Space Order War, lasting from 2845 - 3210, the Solvalou might be in operation by then.
The events of Tales of Eternia and the universe of Strangereal-Galaxian (UGSF) talk about the same world continuations. What events explained the crossover of Tales of Eternia x UGSF and Xevious?
What explanation do you believe make sense? If there's any inconsistencies or something that I have forgot, let me know and I will edit to the best of my abilities.
As a thank you, have a listen to the Sacred Religious State's theme, a maid cafe list that was 13 years ago, and a mini-game SHMUP (Shoot 'em up).
