Twinsen in LBA Prequel?

Isn't that a juicy idea? At some point of the game maybe Hégésippe can have a dream/vision of the future and have an interesting encounter with Twinsen. It'd be cool.

yes but the dream can't be ingame ( it would be stupid ) , thus it must be a video and
1) no FLA conversion yet
2) very difficult to make one

Why can't the dream can be ingame? I'd just make it even cooler imo.

Quetch - That's not the point.
They'll try to insert movies in LBA Prequel anyway.

Another possibility: Make some sort of easter egg with Twinsen as a reference to LBA1?

Much more likely. Having Twinsen in this game would destroy the continuity of the script, since it is set in a time far behind the original LBA games...even in a vision...I could see somewhere along the like having a "Hero" vision, but not Twinsen specifically. Why wouldn't Twinsen recall this, or have a similar vision of a future hero in his games? He saw Sendell's visions, not anyone from his family. Keeping this game canonical will be extremely important, since Fred has said that if any LBA-related fangames are good enough, they may use the ideas in later games, which would be awesome.

Technical aspects aside, I'd expect to see little or no Twinsen, though I can't rule out an easter egg somewhere down the line. And don't worry...we've already got something in the works that will homage our Twinsen-roots with one of the main characters. That's all I can tell you...but when you play the game, you'll figure it out.

You'll just have to wait and see what we come up with, won't you...

I just realised that twinsen won't be in lba prequel (maybe he will when chaos' idea is accepted, but not for the player to controle).

I guess I need to read and mostly think better

I can think of a few ideas for easter eggs...
For example, there could be a hidden statue of FunFrock or a seal of Sendel, maybe even have Rosa's great ancestor in the game.

Ah yes, seals of Sendell is granted. Like those already in LBA. As for hidden statues of FunFrock, I'd say no. Perhaps if it where behind a well hidden Sendell seal.

An great ancestor of Rosa would sure be a great feature.

Well again, this game is taking place at least a generation or two before Twinsen is born, which is why Funfrock didn't exist...but as far as easter eggs, we've already got quite a few planned, but really they should be an afterthought with the depth of the games actual plot.

Don't think if its a good idea to have both FF and Twinsen there, will be kind strange I think, but who knows, this is far from finished so we'll keep the ideas .

how about an MBN easteregg

I always dreamed of the idea to have an MBN easteregg in LBA3. You know something like the starwars fan in LBA1.

neah , the coolest easteregg would be like joe-the-elf in LBA1 on desert island so here it is : discover Twinsen in a locked room in a nursery , playing with kids ... or make him a Wizard Teacher

An MBN easter-egg would be good.

Also, where on Twinsen is Lanyar Island? Is that what Rebellion Island used to be called?
