I'm pretty sure newer games never paid attention to it because they were made ten years later, by a largely different staff, and they had to dumb down and cut out connections to past games to serve the children that hadn't played them. After all, can't have kids jumping into the middle of a story and getting scared and confused.
EMI never mentioned it and was 50% refranceing the past and TMI refranced the past games a lot just not this part but its not cos they don't think ppl will understand most new fans will have looked up what they dont understand on google or fan sites
