  • Obviously do not read beyond this point if you haven't played Cytus 2 up until the CURRENT ending (capped the three free characters to level 35).

    This story update went live for almost a week now and I just got to it today. It's sadly pretty short, but they'll no doubt expand on it later in another update, yet the plot thickens nonetheless! When we last left off with the story, we finally discovered with certainty that Aesir-Fest indeed occured and Aesir did make an appearance, however, there was still no explanation as to why everyone's memories were quite literally wiped nor why people ended up ill every time they attempted to recollect memories of that day, NEKO was still in custody, theres no news on PAFF, and we still aren't sure if what happened at Aesir-Fest or the recent strings of hackings are connected. We are also left with this mysterious android whom appears to be referred to as "Vanessa". Is it THE Vanessa from the first Cytus? Well, we aren't sure yet. Anyways, with the latest update and story expansion, we begin with Xenon and Cherry picking up NEKO from the precinct and we discover NEKO has been released from custody (*sarcastically* yaaaaaaay...), and we also finally find out why there have been no news on PAFF: Mono has been covering up the fact PAFF has left the hospital without notifying anyone and has gone missing!

    Now i'm not 100% sure what's going on in Cytus 2, but it's not as vague as Cytus was, so here's what I believe the plot is thus far: As we see in the game's opening, a virtual event called Aesir-Fest has been announced by the legendary DJ/musician by the same name (Aesir). Without any explanation, according to Xenon and a a few others, there was a "blackout" and everyone that participated in the event suddenly have no recollection of what happened that day...not only that, but Aesir appears to have completely vanished from the radar. On top of that, there have been a string of hacks and incidents that would cause users to become ill and they may even fall into a coma. One such incident affects participants of pop idol, PAFF's virtual concert, causing PAFF, as well as users, to collapse into a coma. Another incident affects streamer/musician, NEKO, as well as countless users when a mysterious call goes out, which, for unknown reasons, leads to NEKO's arrest for interrogation. While this is all happening, users and another DJ/musician, ROBO_Head, try to piece together what they can remember of Aesir-Fest and figure out what exactly happened. At the same time, Xenon, as well as his ex-girlfriend and former bandmate Cherry, take it upon themselves to try and figure out who's behind these hackings personally rather than waiting for an explanation from the "admins". During their investigation, they happen upon a warehouse where they encounter a young woman (or girl, however you wish to interpret her), who appears to see Xenon and Cherry as a threat and opens fire, wounding Xenon. Thanks to Cherry's quick reaction and sharpshooting, no one was seriously injured and the woman was terminated...and that's not just an odd choice of words; Xenon and Cherry find out the woman was in fact an android. Who she is and who sent her is left unknown (for now). Meanwhile, ROBO_Head finally uncorrupts his data of the day Aesir-Fest occurred and discovers the event did in fact take place; this discovery leads to many users recalling some memories of that day with more clarity, but only just barely. Users are a bit shaken to find out someone managed to completely erase everyone's, except entities like ROBO_Head, memories of Aesir-Fest...and what scares them most is that they don't know why nor if this is going to lead to something much bigger. Fast forward a few days, NEKO's charges are appealed and she is released from custody, meeting up with Xenon (who may be her boyfriend?) and Cherry. Not long after, news is finally given about idol PAFF's condition after fans have been waiting impatiently for such news as well as disappointment after disappointment from a series of long-awaited concerts that only end up being cancelled at the last second. The news, however, isnt good news... Fans are left shocked and outraged when Mono, the company that sponsors PAFF, finally makes public that PAFF somehow escaped the hospital where she was recovering and has disappeared without a trace. At an unknown point in time, a transmission goes out in an attempt to contact someone by the name of "Vanessa", an android in the form of a young, pink-haired woman, who appears to be in a chamber of sorts in an unknown location...

    The story expansion leaves us more questions than answers. What are everyone's guesses of what's happening? Personally, I believe Aesir himself is behind the hackings, or is at the very least an accomplice, considering every "glitch" in the game has some sort of connection to Aesir. As for PAFF's situation, the unnamed android Cherry "killed" and this "Vanessa" I'm not sure yet...I need more information to come to any sort of theory/conclusion.

    • This all takes place before Cytus one, if you look at the years... Cytus one is after 60 years... So Vanessa for Cytus 2 is the same person as Vanessa in Cytus one who transferred her memories to the robot.

    • My theory is that the fest might have a disaster and left the audience completely traumatized. Æsir used the corrupted song to wipe that memory from all the people in the fest. So everyone did not remember the disaster nor the appearance of Æsir, until the song was fixed, taken to the iM and updated that Æsir was in the fest all the time.

      Now that's out of the way, there was only one question?

      What is this disaster from the fest?

    • @ TheLover222 is it? wasnt Cytus year 300-something or something along those lines? a lot of the years in Cytus 2 says year 600+. besides the Vanessa we see, whether it is the Vanessa from Cytus or not, is clearly an android whereas the real Vanessa is human. even if the C2 Vanessa isnt an android, she at the very least must have some sort of cybernetic enhancements. and idk if it's the angle of the shot, the C2 Vanessa seems younger than C Vanessa. Vanessa from the original was a young woman whereas Vanessa from the sequel (if it is a sequel) appears to be a young teen.



      @ MixelRemix246 yes. and a follow-up, if it was intentional, why did this person cause this disaster? whether it was Aesir or otherwise

      No, it is absolutely a sequel. It references the virus concentrations in specific areas are still too high to travel safely in early iM logs as well as multiple instances of them speaking of the rebuilding of humanity as the story goes forward.

      This may sound ridiculous but might be true but C2 Vanessa is Æsir, you can tell the colour pallete of the android Æsir and C2 Vanessa. She was the reincarnation of C1 Vanessa to redesign the world of Cytus to what we see right now in Cytus II (and proves that both of the universes are connected). She was also a DJ composing her creative songs and send it to the world. She then built a robot to replace her by storing some of her memories and all of her now published songs.  Why? Because she has something to do with sacrificing herself to connect to the world for maintaining it and the evidence are all the wires at the ending. But something came into her mind. Although she was young, she was incredibly intelligent to the point that she predicted that something might be a disaster in the future. So she created a song and purposely corrupt it so that the tune of the now corrupted song will wipe everyone's memory about a specific event. Such as the fest. Even if it was recovered and everyone got their memory back, some of their memories will always get missing but it wasn't even aware at all.

      Here's my theory about the disaster

      So she built the android right, what if the android has a malfunction in its program that it may done something wrong. Was it itself taking apart or it has done something bad like death or some bad stuff? It wasn't exact though but that might be it. The android has a malfunction which caused the disaster but was forgotten by a corrupted song and even if the song got recovered and everyone remembered that Æsir was there, the disaster will always be forgotten.

    • @MixelRemix246 could be. we still dont know whats going on. ppl remember the event now and the fact Aesir was there, but no one knows what happened specifically nor y their memory was wiped...and because of it theyre a bit shaken, and rightly so

    • Cytus 2 is a prequel in my opinion. Cytus 1's story is still very confusing for me tho.....

    • theres not enough to prove it is, whereas in Cytus 2 has mentioned multiple times about the incident in Cytus albeit very vaguely
