So the question is, did they intend to make it a complete, hard reboot? Or was it just a relaunch that didn't reference earlier continuity to make it easier for new viewers that they eventually decided to split into it's own continuity with vs King Ghidorah?

There's simply no 1984 it with the intervening movies (and believe me, when I was young and fixated on continuity and canon, I tried to make it work).

You can say it’s just a visual/ soft reboot, but I think it was always a full on reboot where nothing happened between 1954 and 1984.

I very much consider TFA to be half-assed. What a generic film which only fed on nostalgia, it brought nothing new to the table.
That's not true. C3PO had a red arm.

Yep. They went out of the gate with the Super-X and those masers in 1984. It helped define the Heisei series as something that was always going to be futuristic on the tech side... and then once they brought in Mecha-King Ghidorah and using that tech, anything felt possible from Mechagodzilla to freezing rays.
As for the question at hand: been said multiple times but the Heisei series is a hard reboot. The Millennium series is a more mixed bag when it comes to continuity, as each entry has a slightly different story behind it.
Btw editing to the title to mention series rather than era.
