Bungie's recent TWAB tackles the upcoming Festival of the Lost sets for Destiny 2, and a fan spots the Gundam logo on one of the Mech ornaments.

p>Destiny 2's The Witch Queen arguably made the game more popular than ever, with over a million copies sold prior to the expansion's launch. Even though it's been just a little over a month since the release of The Witch Queen and its accompanying Season, Season of the Risen, it's already time to look at the future and what it holds. An example comes from the upcoming reworks of both Arc and Solar subclasses, which are meant to cover all three Light subclasses now that Destiny 2's Void 3.0 update is live.

This is a time to draw expectations for the players and the developers alike, and Bungie's recent TWAB was about voting for Destiny 2's next Festival of the Lost armor sets. Much like the developer did last year, with two different sets themed around Monsters and Dinosaurs, this year's pre-Festival of the Lost poll is needed to make one of the two new sets emerge the victor. This year's sets are inspired by Monsters, like last year but with a twist, while Mechs are the other choice.

The community is already debating whether it may be worth voting for Monsters 2.0 to allow Bungie to refine the Mech sets more for next year or straight-up vote for the Gundam-inspired ornaments now, but the choice is not an easy one to make. Still, a Reddit user by the name of Calvin-throwaway noticed that the inspiration for the mockup versions of Mech sets might be very well taken straight from the source, meaning Gundam's various suits. In fact, the Destiny 2 player spotted the Gundam logo on the concept art for the Titan's Mech set, barely visible on the Guardian's left shoulder plate.

Other users pointed out that this specific Titan set resembles the MS-06 Zaku 2 suit, albeit with different colors and a very different headpiece, whereas the Warlock's set is more akin to the Gundam G-Self suit. Regardless, it's very likely that the Gundam logo on the concept art for Destiny 2's new Festival of the Lost sets is there because the whole thing is just for presentation purposes, though it does show how much of an influence the Gundam series had on these ornaments.

Destiny 2 is currently the 3rd-highest rated game of the year, and although that is certainly due at least in part to the new The Witch Queen expansion, the game is growing more and more over time, especially so after Sony's acquisition of Bungie. The fact that Bungie's franchise still takes inspiration from other developers for its work is amazing, and players are not upset about the Gundam logo, but rather want to see more like it in the Eververse store.

Destiny 2 is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
