There was a volcano in the original DW as well: the Miharashi/Panorama Mountain. Meramon's lair was literally the lava cave.Really the only problematic areas are Honeo Resort and Ron-Ri Volcano. In most of its recent incarnations File Island has had a volcano, though its size and location always vary drastically. In Crusader it's a mid-sized peak snuggled between Outlook Mountain and Infinity Mountain (reminding one of the existence of Drill Tunnel's Lava Cave), in Re: Digitize Boncano Volcano is a huge mountain taking up a good chunk of the northwestern part of the island, and in Collectors Conver Volcano outright replaces Infinity Mountain at the island's center. And now in Next Order the volcano's at the island's southernmost point. Very odd. As for Honeo Resort, all I can say is that it sort of seems like a dried-up version of the Submerged Ruins from Re: Digitize, given the modernistic buildings and bowl-like geography.
Thanks. I wonder if they'll develop that idea, or if it was just done for a bit of fan-service.
It's funny to think that as soon the demons showed up, everyone just decided it was easier to jettison the whole building into another world rather than deal with them. I wonder if this is something they could do for any area, or just exclusively with Ice Sanctuary.I guess it was just fanservice. Though, deliberate and well done, because is ingrained in the story of the game. I mean, Mameo isn't the only character that says this (is just the only one I can get screenies, lol). If you talk with some digimon in the Absolute Zero area, they also mention that the Cathedral just pop up from nothingness some centuries ago, that something evil is inside of it (and I guess, it has to do with Belphemon and Lucemon, that are the boss digimon of the Cathedral), etc. So, while is fanservice, is one done right.
After the introduction of the Eternal Continent in 2020, I started to think about the various Mugen/Infinity iterations, and I was wondering why it was named "Cauldron" in Next 0rder. Then I thought, rather than a mountain, the entrance to the Infinity Zone is located in front of a lake created when Floatia became airbourne and took a large chunk of land with it, ie: a giant bowl shape. Also, if you do take the Infinity Zone to be a space connecting multiple dimensions/servers, you could call it a mixing pot of sorts. You reckon that could be the reasoning?Infinity Cauldron (Infinite Cauldron)
