Could it be that the story of BOUT2 got a little bit messed up? In the opening scene we see Nate falling from a floating island, and then he returns on a flying carpet only to see that the island has become "pink". Later in the game we see the parts of the story where he falls from the island (resulting in the events of the opening scene) and where he has been captured after returning on the island. But in this second part the island has not become pink as it was been foretold in the intro. This "pinkyfication" happens later when Nate already got his ship back.
