      Feel entirely free to steal it, market it, rape it, burn it, and use it
all the way around. I lay NO copyright on this document whatsoever. That is
why i made this 'un-legal' section. I dont know if you can link directly to
this faq, because it will be hosted on gamefaqs, but if you want to have it
on your site or whatever, you have my permission. Oh, and try to give credit
where it is needed.  :)

     Please note, i do NOT know or fully understand japanese, yet, but still i
have found this game VERY fun and intersting (notice the word very). And
because i dont know japanese very well there are some limitations on my
ability to play this cool game. When the english version comes out, i will be
able to add some story to the walkthrough and it will hopefully be alot
better.

     I would like to tell you that i have played the Lufia series, and i have
fallen in love with them. Lufia 2: Rise of the Sinistrals is my favorite game
in the whole world. I hope this game turns out to be as good as the rest.

[Dungeon of the Castle]

     In the begining there is alot of dialogue and i can hardly read japanese,
so i dont know what it says. Just press 'a' alot to get through it. After you
get controll of your main character, go to the west side of town and into the
castle. There you will talk to your friend and he will join your party! There
you will talk to some guard and then to another guy, we will ask you for your
name, just press 'start' and then 'a' to keep the same name, or if you know
katakana, enter in your name. Then after that, your screen will have 6 guys
wearing different clothes, i dont know if it makes a difference of which one
you pick, so just pick your favorite colour or something. You may save by
talking to the priest near-by. Now it is time to enter the dungeon! Go west
into the door the guard is near.
     Upon entering the dungeon, take your first left. Cut down all the bushes
with 'b' to find a potion and a weapon. Exit the room go north through the
bushes. In the next room you will see a tombstone-looking thing and a door
behind it. Try it out, but you cant open the door,nor use the tombstone thing.
so take the right passage. [TIP: always check the bushes, there may be items
in them, or switches!] Keep going right and take the passage that leads
downwards. When you enter, both doors shut tight, not opening.'HMMM, you think
how am i going to get out?' Just kill all the enimies in the room. Now enter
the door that you didnt come through. Did you read the TIP? Then Use the pot
to press the switch/button to open the door way on the left. There will be a
treasure box with a gem inside! Now go back to the tombstone looking thing and
use the gem on it.'But how', you ask? Press 'select' at the tombstone and open
the 2nd line on the left, 'Super items' (i think thats what the 's' is for...)
Then use the gem. The door opens, so go through it. Next, you will see some
blocks surrounded by bushes. Just cut down the middle bush, straight in front
of the door, and push it all the way back. Now cut the bushes on both side of
the door and push the block aside. After you enter, you will see some guy
running up to you, crying about something... well ignore him and push the
barrel on the switch/button. Next, pick up the discoloured pot to put on the
switch/button under the bush, wow, the door opens! use it. In that room there
is a Blue Jelly! A high class enemy! Hes not so tough. Check the treasure boxs
but they are all empty. Cut down the bush to reveile the real treasure. I dont
know what it is. Now take the south passage.
     In the next room there are clifts everywhere. switch to the other
character to use the rope whip, and rope the posts on the other side. Pick up
the pot and use it on the switch to raise the post on the other side. Then
take the passage on the left. Go south until you find a circle of bushes. Chop
em all down to find a couple items, and a hole that you are supposed to
accidentaly fall through. So fall through it. Walk around and you will see a
vine ladder, dont use it just yet. Pass it and go north. In the room, you will
see a coffin, dont open it unless you are ready to fight a tough guy. If you
are, then do so. This zombie creature isnt that hard if you have the best
weapons in the shop, and if you use potions when you need em. After you beat
that guy, use the vine ladder to escape. When you do, talk to the guard in
front of the dungeon. He will take you to the king, and the king will ask you
3 questions, and for each question you can choose 2 answers. These are the
answers given to us by 'Omegaxboy': 2nd answer, 2nd answer, 1st answer. Thanx
omegaxboy. The king will give you something, and now you may exit the town!

| A Few Good Tips  |=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-/
|-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-/

     -You can never save to often.

     -Always get the best items/weapons/armour before leaving to the next
quest, that way you get good experience and you are best equipped.

     -Exploring is a good idea, always use this or any walkthrough/faq as a
last resort because it will be alot more fun!

     -If you dont understand Japanese, talk to everybody in every town. That
way if some scene needs to happen, it probably will.
