Many of us, including myself, would have loved to imagine the game on the same world, even if we were skeptical about some situations - we had imagination of making it work. But since the design was originally mentioned to be on completely different worlds...Obviously this wouldn't work out! Here's the quote from the question:
Here's the link to the entire interview: http://www.gamezone.com/news/item/gz_in ... duel_saga/Question: Can you give a little of the story background for Legaia 2? Does the game continue with Vahn or is this a new story with new characters?
Natsumi: The name, Legaia continent, is the same name as the continent in Legend of Legaia but the story in Legaia 2 Duel Saga takes place in a completely different world.
There is a village called Nohl in a remote region of the Legaia Continent that depends on a magical crystal called the Aqualith. All of a sudden, this Aqualith is stolen by a man known as Gold Eyes. A young villager of Nohl named Lang sets off on a journey to recover the Aqualith. During his journey, he realizes his hidden powers and the situation takes an unexpected and unbelievable turn.
