i don't  know i think Mangus is Guile b/c i mean he where's a mask so you don't know who he really is and the hair long and bluish-purple!!!

well it's a good theory !!!


Magus was supposed to be Guile, but because Masato was lazy, he thought that having 40 characters and doing the Kid, Schala, Janus plot would be to hard. Lucca's letter was actually designed for his appearance.
Stupid shit characters destroyed Janus' plot =.=
oh ic!

Actually, I think it was more about the time constraints and limited budget that caused the whole Magus/Janus thing to disappear, as opposed to lazy developers and artists. Besides, if Lucca's letter was designed for Magus/Janus's appearance, why on Earth would the programmers have kept it in the game's final build? That'd be on hell of an oversight.

Quote from: Ultimania interview with Masato Kato
Question: It was mentioned in Lucca's letter that Janus existed. Did Janus
('Trigger's' Magus) appear at all in 'Cross'?

Answer: Originally, I wanted to write about Schala's and Janus's story after
that, but I gave up after we reached about 40 characters. I felt that writing
the close relation between Schala, Kid and Janus would impossible if I had to
squeeze the number of characters. As for Lucca's letter, when we started
developing for the game, the letter was written as Janus appearance was
planned. Lucca knew that Magus was in search of Schala, and since she didn't
even explicitly mention Janus's whereabouts, we left the letter as it is.

Yeah, also it would add another Cameo to the game, and we all love cameos!
