SOLDIER, First Class
- Oct 30, 2016
As it stands, the main game is the alternate events; Noct ponders what happens if he fulfills his destiny and sees how the main game plays out. DotF is the true ending, but because they couldn't flesh it out, had to trim it and make sure what they did have was strong on its own. EP: Noct even starts off with a scene like the original Versus trailer where he's fighting Niflheim soldiers.
The novel is best understood as a completely separate canon, a la the alternate canons that appear in comic books sometimes ("What if Superman grew up in the USSR?").
