Educated Guess on WX's Short

Recommended Posts

I am going to make an educated guess to the short for WX-78.

In the detective board for Winona's short, we have this weird flier that Winona collected labeled "Exposition Universelle 1910". Picture in the spoiler below:

The Exposition Universelle was a world fair that was held during 1910 in Brussels, Belgium; with world fairs being a place for nations to get together and show off their achievements.

What's interesting is that there was a big fire on the 14th and 15th of August that year.

So what better place to show off your latest invention (cough WX-78 cough) than a World fair that conveniently had a big fire for something to disappear!

And that's my theory for what the short is going to be about. If it's not, then what the heck is this poster supposed to be about lmao.

See, Winona is important she deserve to be a protag.

I think the short is going to show who the other guy that help built WX-78 and what went wrong.

Er, I don't get what you're trying to say.

Possible, though I personally doubt it.

 

Going by WX's biography, it seems that however Wagstaff made them, he regrets and feels shame about it. Not enough to dismantle them thankfully, but it definitly seems like something that Wagstaff wouldn't be particularly eager to show to the public.

This actually makes more sense than you might think. Wx has an old quote regarding something about fire, it has always been extremely vague on what it was all about but maybe we'll finally know.

So wait, you are telling me there won't be a mob of overweight angry citizens protesting that "robots are taking our jerbs" in the short?

That reminds me, when WX examines the potato head thing in single-player (which turns into Maxwell's head), it says this:

WX also says this for the potato:

Maybe it's a clue on to who the other creator for WX is. Maybe it's lowkey Maxwell or Max in disguise as it would explain how he's been using Wagstaff's designs for the Teleportato, but I'm not sure. 

It's also weird that WX's Chorusbox Circuit is playing Ragtime though, since that's has been what played on the radio when Walter got snatched in his short (and thus presumably Woodie as well) and the fact that Ragtime is what plays when Maxwell is on the throne.

Funny thing, this Rose Appraiser made the same prediction while compiling and speculating the DS/T timeline. But, of course, speculation is easily disproven as Klei will be the ones to call the shots.

Ah you're right, I'm just misremembered which track. I'll fix it in the comment above.

The guess about the fair is solid.

Walt Disney also debuted his animatronic President Lincoln at the 1964 world fair as well, which was a huge advancement for the technology of human animatronic puppetry so theres kinda a neat little parallel between Walt and Wagstaff.
