(The original, older version of Falcom was in mk2; the new edition is meant to be the one native to the alternate dimension where most of V's story takes place in.)
Not all of the Makers from the first two games are still in V; it seems that 5pb., NISA, Gust, Cave, and older Falcom are unavailable to play as. (Older Falcom seems to show up in younger Falcom's story mode, at least.)
And RED was only in the first game; from what I gather, her company had a change of ownership, which led to her character being withdrawn before mk2 came out.
