KAEDE: A kunoichi(female ninja)who was sent to assassinate Samanouske but instead gains trust in him.We play as Kaede twice in the game when Samanouske dissapears.Although she is quite weak she gains in speed and sometimes can enter places that Samanouske can't. PRINCESS YUKI: Samanouske's cousin who is about 19 years.She constantly longs to see the world and escape the life in which she is to soon have an arranged marraige.She envies Kaede and is a kind noble woman.She seems to be the only person in the Inabayama castle to notice the strange disappearances of some of the maids and servants. YUMEMARU: A young boy whose parents were killed at war several years ago.He befriends Princess Yuki and is found wandering around The Keep by Samanouske.He is about 12 years old. NOBUNAGA ODA: Leader of the Oda clan,Nobunaga died one year ago and was resurrected by a top class demon called Guildstern.After making a Contract with Guildstern and Fortinbras,Nobunaga plans to take over the world bit by bit starting with Nanamagari. TOKICHIRO KINOSHITA: One of Nobunaga's top ranking officials.He is quite small and nimble,so because of this he is referred to as the "monkey man".During the game he tries to make Samanouske a member of the Oda clan but fails.He is one day destined to conquer the world under a new name....Hideyosho Toyatoma. 3.Items: ======= There are 4 groups of items in the game. 1.MAGIC:Items that use magic to heal,power up or attack with 2.SPECIAL:Used as tools(sometimes they have no important use) 3.SPECIFIC:These items are used as keys etc. 4.BOOKS+NOTES:Gives you translations and information. There also 5 types of chests 1.NORMAL CHEST:Small red chests with gold lining. 2.TREASURE CHEST:Big brown chests 3.TRICK TREASURE CHEST:You open this by getting the right combination 4.CUPBOARDS:These are small orange parts of the wall you cut in order to get whatever is inside. 5.QUIZ CHEST:You need books to translate the answer to open these.There are 4 of these. 1.Magic items: -------------- HERB: These plants a common and will restore half of your vitality when used.They are found in normal chests or growing in the ground.Although they are useful still they are not strong.Save up on herbs to get medicines. MEDICINE: Medicines are not as common as herbs because they restore all of your vitality.Instead of using herbs you can enhance them into medicines with about 1,000 red souls.Only use medicines when against bosses and save plenty for the final boss. FLUORITE: These mysterious stones are dotted along Nanamagari and are invisible.There are about 20 and if you finish the game with all of the in your inventory a secret will be your reward. TALISMAN: This items is very helpful but also extremely rare.In fact there are only two in the whole game,they are found in the Dark Realm and the East Area.If you have one in your inventory when you die not only will come back to life but your vitality will be completely restored. POWER & MAGIC JEWELS: These two items are essential and are dotted around the place.They are either dropped by soldiers,found in Quiz Chests or in normal chests.Power jewels increases your vitality gauge while magic jewels increase your magic gauge. SOUL ABSORBERS: These items are very powerful.When used it creates a large circle which kills everything inside it instantly so you can absorb the demons souls.Like the talisman there is only two in the whole game.One is found in the West Area and another is found in the Dark Realm.The last one is found on top of the Tall Building in the East Area. SHINDEN: This orb creates the Raizan.It is the most powerful magic attack in the game.When you use it Samanouske will automatically slash an enemy with repeatable lightning slashes,sometimes even incinerating the enemy.It will open up doors with thunder(blue)crystals. KOUEN: This is the second most powerful attack.The orb itself creates the Enryuu.Unlike the Shinden it will use magic even if you are not fighting an enemy.When you use it a flame will come out of the sword & set anything it touches on fire.With this orb you can open doors with fire(red) crystals. ARASHI: This orb forms the Shippuu.Although it is useful its magic is weak.When you use it Samanouske spins the Shippuu around to form a tornado.It best for hard reach enemies,some bosses and when your surrounded by a large group of energy.Like the Kouen and Shiden it takes 2,000 red souls to enhance it to lvl.2 and 4,000 red souls to enhance to lvl.3.You can use this to open doors with tornado (green)crystals. MAGIC POOL: These are pools of water that help you recover magic.Whenever you are low on magic they will throw blue spirits to fill your magic meter.There are only 3 in the whole game:In the Sentry Box and the candle puzzle in the Keep and the Demon World.They can be used over and over again. SOUL STONE: These are small orbs which contain 500 red souls.Like the Magic Pools there are only 3 in the game but they can only be used once.They are found in the 5th floor of the Keep,oppisite the West Area statue and the East Area gardens. GAUNTLET: This strange item is a gift to you from the Clan of Ogres.It is capable of taking the souls of demons when you kill them.You can enhance it by collecting 20,000 souls and entering the enhance screen.Also to enhance it again collect 50,000 souls and enter the enhance screen. Special Items: -------------- ROPE LADDER & WOODEN LADDERS: A strong rope ladder made of cotton found in the Underground Temple inside the Trick Treasure Chest.It is used to go down into the drained moat on the west side of the keep.The wooden ladder is found in the Underground Tunnel and is your only means to get to the Keep. SHINOBI KIT: This set of tools helps ninjas like Kaede open locked doors and disarm traps.With this you can go through doors that Samanouske can not open.as Kaede in the west and east areas.This will help you get the great bow and will get you to the prison. ROSARY OF COMMUNICATION: This item is the most useless thing in the whole game.When you obtain it in the Keep Underground you will be able to talk to the dead soldiers lying around the keep.When you have it a soldiers "soul" will hover above his body and you just have to press the X button. PURIFIER BELL: This bell is said to have the power to heal the tormented souls of the dead.........It is found in the Keep Underground. VISION STAFF: This is found in the West Area and is a useful item if you are looking for the fluorite pieces.It will make your search easier by making them visible(as they will glow). BISHAMON OCARNIA: In the inventory in it says it will awaken a sword and that's exactly what it will do.When you return from to the Keep from the Underground Tunnel,go to the strange man in the Sentry Box.He will ask you to go to the Dark Realm.If you do go and finish all 20 levels you will receive the ocarina in a chest. Specific items: --------------- RIGHT & LEFT CREST PIECES: To open the door on the 4th floor you must find these two pieces and insert them into the "keyhole" of the door on the 4th floor of the Keep.The right crest piece is in the Conference Room and the left piece is in the Storage Room. GEAR: As Kaede you will need to find a key to the prison.Beside a dead guard is the gear which you need to use in the West Area Library to open the secret door. GOLD,SILVER & EVIL PLATES: When you are in the West Area as Kaede you will need the gold and silver plates in order to enter the prison.The silver plate is in the West Area Library and the gold plate is in the West Area Burner Building.Later on as Samanouske you will find the Evil Plate in the Underground Tunnel. STATUE HEAD: As Samanouske finding this at the North Gate will let you open a closed door in the West Area.After opening it you will find the Matchlock. DECORATED SWORD & ARROW: Although they sound like weapons they are actually keys because of their thick decorations.The decorated sword is found at the North Gate and is they key to the East Area where the decorated arrow is found in the East Area and is essential for getting the Great Arrow. GREAT BOW & ARROW: These two items are found in the East Area and are essential items to enter the Demon World.As Samanouske you will find the Great Bow in the floating temple and as Kaede you'll find the Great Arrow in the Bishamon Shrine. RED,BLUE & GREEN KEYS: These are special keys that open doors with coloured ink.There are 3 doors like this:the entrance to the West Area,the entrance to the Underground Tunnel and the entrance to the Boatyard.As Samanouske you will find the Blue Key in the Trick Treasure Chest in the Keep Underground.As Kaede you will find the red key in the Keep,and the blue key in the locked chest. 4.Weapons: ========== NORMAL & BISHAMON SWORDS: You start the game with the normal sword.It is pretty weak and as soon as you get a better one you shouldn't use it again.The Bishamon Sword on the other hand is the most powerful sword in the whole game and unlike the normal sword it has a magic attack yet doesn't use any magic.It's magic attack is very strong and the sword itself can kill most demons in one hit although you get it just before the last boss.To get it you must get the Bishamon Ocarina and use beside the Magic Pool in the Demon Word. RAIZAN,ENRYUU & SHIPPUU: These are the 3 swords created by the Shinden,Kouen & Arashi.The Raizan is very powerful and has strong magic attacks.It is also fast.The Enryuu is the strongest sword but is quite slow and has medium magic attack.The Shippuu is very fast but both its magic and its strength are weak.There is no best sword between the 3 of them,just use your favourite.To enhance all 3 of them to level 2 you need 3,000 red souls.To enhance them to lvl.3 you need 6,000 red souls. BOW: The bow is a very useful weapons which can be used for killing arches or any other hard to reach enemiesd.You can even you use it for bosses and setting of mechanisms.Whatever you do with it watch your ammo because there isn't much of it.You can enhance a normal arrow to a fire arrow with 200 red souls. MATCHLOCK: This is the coolest weapon in the whole game but sadly you get it half- way through the game which is such a shame.It is pretty powerful and like the bow its versitile.It uses gunpowder and like the arrow there is limited ammo.With 100 red souls you can change a bullet into a stronger Burst Bullet which can hit multiple targets. ARMOUR: Armour is an essential item for Samanouske and can be the difference between life and death.There are 3 types of armor:Normal,Holy,Great. At the start of the game you have NORMAL ARMOR necause it is used by all warriors.The HOLY ARMOUR is found in the 3rd floor of the keep.It offers more protection and prevents Skull Demons from using their absorb attack.The GREAT ARMOUR is found in the East Area in a trick treasure chest and offers the most protection and like the HOLY ARMOUR it does not let Skull Demons use their absorb attack on you. NORMAL & SACRED KNIFES + KUNAI: These are they 3 weapons that Kaede has.The normal knife is fast but both weak and short,but the sacred knife is much stronger yet is weak compared to Samanouske's swords.The kunai are weapons that Kaede can throw at enemies and are best used against strong enemies.Kaedes weapons are weak but unlike Samanouske she is very quick so here is a list of moves. CHOPPED LIVER: When attacking an enemy hold the R1 button and hit the square button. FROG LEAP: While attacking an enemy hold R1 and run towards the enemy and keep hitting the square button. DEEP THROAT:After jumping behind the enemy run up towards his back and press the square button. BACKFLIP:Hold R1 and press down on the D-pad. 5.Enemies: ========== They are 4 classes of demons.Each class symbolises there strength,power and how much souls they give out and size.All demons have a weak point which means only one hit is required.This looks like a yellow streak and happens when an enemy lets its guard down.I have weak points for some enemies but I'll update it soon. LOW CLASS DEMONS: ----------------- These Demons are plentiful and are quite easy to kill and take out very little damage from you.Although when groups of them attack with stronger demons they can be pests. _________________________________________________________________ SOLDIER DEMONS: Moves:Stab,Slash,Demon Cry and Charge. These are demons with bright red hats and wear green clothes.They seen to be the remains of dead soldiers seeming as they are skeletons with rotting flesh and blood.Their moves are weak except for slash,which can take out some energy.They are common and don't give you much souls.They're weak point is when they do Demon Cry just before the charge at you. _________________________________________________________________ BLADE DEMONS Moves:Blade slash,Blade charge. These three green-eyed freaks are very fast and powerful as their Blade charge can take a lot of your energy away quickly.Because they are fast they focus on the element of surprise and seem to pop out of nowhere.Sometimes you can hear their two blades hitting each other without even seeing each other.They are very common at first but after playing as Kaede in the West Area they are never seen again.Their weak point is straight away when they get up. _________________________________________________________________ ARMIDILLO DEMONS: Moves:Slash,Double slash, Demon Cry,Spike Roll These demons are quite common and appear around The Keep Entrance the Drained Moat and the South Area Bridge.They are small demons with a small sword.They have bulky backs with spikes and small legs which makes them slow.The only strong move they have is the spike roll which is also their weak points.As soon as they start the Demon cry hold the L1 button and before they hit you with the spike roll let go and press the square button quickly. _________________________________________________________________ HERCUBITES: Moves:Bite Hercubites or Beetle Demons are attack in groups and are usually followed by much stronger demons.They have only one move which is quite strong and can drain a lot of energy.They themselves are actually very strong and it will take you a while to kill them even with a level 3 sword,but they are powerless against burst bullets and fire arrows.They're weak point is when lunging themselves towards you to bite you. ________________________________________________________________ SKULL DEMONS: Move:Absorb,Vacum,Spin Skull Demons are one of the most annoying enemies in the whole game mainly because they steal the souls from any enemy that has just died,with their vacuum attack.They are large clouds made up of many skullsAlthough they're vacuum is bad it will multiply each soul they steal by two.Their absorb attack is when they grab onto your gauntlet and steal blue and red souls from it.Soon later they may become full of souls that they may start to spin and soon disappear.This is their weak point and they can be killed with anything.Getting your gauntlet enhanced will mean that your "vacuum" will be much stronger.Also finding the Holy Armour will prevent them from doing their absorb attack. _________________________________________________________________ ARCHER DEMONS: Move:Bow shot Archer Demons can absolutely annoying because they choose to sit in very high ground.Even though they're energy is extremely low they do give you a lot of souls.Because they choose to attack you from high places the best weapons to use are either the matchlock,wind attack or arrows. __________________________________________________________________ VINE DEMONS: Moves:None These demons are basically plant-like demons that are extremely rare and in fact have abousolutey no moves at all.They only thing they do is block up passageways.Because they grow in groups they give tons of souls.They can be killed with a strong sword. ================================================== MIDDLE CLASS DEMONS: -------------------- Middle class demons require a lot more than just running up to them and hitting them over and over again(except if you're vitality bar is long and you have a level 3 sword).They require running up to them,then move back once they made a move and then hit a few times.Because they are stronger they give a lot of souls. _________________________________________________________________ SAMURAI DEMON: Moves:Upward slash,Downward slash,Sword slash,Double slash,Choke,Block Samurai demos are recognisable by their long arms,red armour and distinctive growls.Their moves are quite strong but their most powerful attack is the Choke where they pick you up from your neck and slowly kill you.Although they are strong a level 3 lightning and fire attack will incinerate them instantly in one go.Their block is powerful and if it does occur that they block an attack the it'll slash you before you can move.If you ever manage to be picked by their choke attack keep pressing the square and circle buttons. _________________________________________________________________ REYNALDO: Moves:Slap,Tentacle tunnel,Tunnel slap,Grab + Stab This freaky creature is Guildstern's newest creation which is difficult in groups.It is wearing armour and has two tentacles instead of arms,has large white eyes and a soft body which is the reason he is annoying.Because of its soft body you can easily chop it in half.Great!That is until both his legs and chest turns into two more Reynaldo.Some of the Reynaldo's attacks are weak except the Grab and Stab where he grabs you and hits you with two spikes on his back.His annoying move is the Tunnel slap,where he puts his tentacle underground and slaps you even if your nowhere near him.Even worse is the Tentacle tunnel which is the same as tunnel slap except he holds onto your leg so your stuck and you're an easy target for other enemies. ______________________________________________________________ NINJA DEMON: Moves:Slash,Blade charge,Needle throw,Shadow leap,Needle Stab. These are stronger versions of the blade demons as the have the same moves(and a some more)but look different.They have three purple eyes,are faster,have needles on their hands instead of blades and wear black robes.Their most annoying yet weak attack is the Needle Throw.This is where they throw sharp needles at you.The Shadow leap is cool but definitely confusing as you don't know whether it'll jump above you or stay in place. _____________________________________________________________ MINOTAUR DEMON: Moves:Axe swing,Axe swing combo,Downward Axe Swing,Slash,Double Salsh,Block These hefty brutes are bigger and faster than samurai demons.They carry a big steel axe which takes out a lot of health.They are huge demons with fur,two horns tipped with red and they usually block your attacks and the give you a Downward Axe Swing.An Axe swing combo consists of a downward axe swing and then an Axe swing.Usually it only takes one hit from a lvl.3 magic attack to kill these quickly. =============================================== HIGH CLASS DEMONS: ------------------ High Class Demons give more souls than middle class demons and are harder to kill.Sometimes it may take 2 or 3 lightning attacks.There are only 3 types of High Class Demons. _________________________________________________________________ SHIELDED SAMURAI DEMON: Moves:Exactly the same as the SAMURAI DEMON This demon is exactly the same as the Samurai Demon except a few things:it has a wooden shield(big deal!!!),it's darker(WOW!!!) and it is stronger than the normal Samurai Demon(OH GOD NO!!!!!!!!!!!!) _________________________________________________________________ STEALTH DEMONS: Moves:Jump swipe,Swipe,Jump boomerang,Boomerang. This Demon is an excellent hunter as it uses stealth(like the monster in the film PREDATOR)in order to kill humans.It moves are a bit strong but it is quite slow.When it uses stealth the outline of its body and its footsteps are only visible until it jumps up into the air and shows itself.If you manage to stab it while it is on the ground then it will die instantly usually giving you lots of yellow souls. _________________________________________________________________ TROLL DEMONS: Moves:Downward Axe swing,Upwards axe swing. These Demons are a light shade of green and are twice as strong and harder versions of the Minotaur Demons and so may take either 2 or 3 lightning attacks.Not only that but because they have a bigger axe(I mean huge)made of bronze(Bigger than the Minotaur Demons axe).It's best to use magic only. TOP CLASS DEMONS: ----------------- Top Class Demons are the games bosses(except Guildstern).You fight them in a battlefield which is closed off and the give tons of souls. 1.GUILDSTERN 2.ORSIC 3.MARCELLUS JR. 4.MIMIC 5.TROLL KING 6.HERCUBUS 7.MARCEELUS SNR. 8.FORTINBRAS 6.Books + Files: ================ There are 17 books and files in this game.The translation book's(Seiryu,Suzaku,Byakko and Gebnu) volumes are written in the order you find them.I have written the locations.By the way the notes have paintings that depict what they talk about.

JOURNALS: The Journals belong to Saimyou a monk who tells of his observations on the demons.There is 7 including one from his master Sougen and are dotted around Nanamgari.On each of them there are pictures related to the topic.In the walkthrough I have called them scrolls. 1 - Sougens note is found on the pedestal at the Underground Temple entrance.He talks about the Ogres Gauntlet. 2 - Found in a chest inside on of the vases in the Underground Temple,beside the alter with the SHINDEN.Saimyou talks of his discovery of the demons 3 - After defeating Orsic go through the newly revealed passage and open up the chest to find the second journal.This time he talks about having to leave his master Sougen at the Underground Temple. 4 - After meeting Tokochiro go into the room that has no fire crystals.The 3rd journal in which Saimyou talks about the demons eating habits and what it has made him do. 5 - This is found in the Storage Room in the Keep.Cut open the cupboard on the wall and pick it up.Saimyou describes the birth of a demon. 6 - Found in the West Area Library.Open the chest beside the trick door.In this one Saimyou(who is barely alive)tries to enter the gate to the Demon World. 7 - This is found in the East Area on a door.Saimyou is dying and writes how to get into the Demon World. Also there are coloured books found in the Keep and the East Area that are written by Guildstern who writes about his fellow demons,Nobunaga,Princess Yuki and the Apocalypse.Although they have nothing to do with completing the game they do tell you what's going on. 7.TIPS: ======= After finishing a boss backtrack in order to get more red souls etc.Try different ways to kill different enemies in order to get more souls.Keep going into a room or place until all enemies are dead.Save as much as you can in case you die and when you are about to face a boss.Conserve herbs to enhance them and also keep medicines until you face Fortinbras or when you play as Kaede.When you play Kaede be careful and don't waste any talismans until you face Frotinbras.Get power and magic jewels.Enhance items when you get the chance. Always check your map to see if there are places where you have not been.Enhance orbs before you enhance weapons so you can enter all blocked doors quickly.When a door is blocked by a crystal you need a certain orb at a certain level. eg.A door with three fire crystals requires a lvl.3 KOUEN.A door with two wind crystals requires a lvl.2 ARASHI. 8.WALKTHROUGH ============= Part 1 ******NANAMGARI & THE SOUTH AREA****** When you first gain go through the passage to find 2 blade demons and Princess Yuki.Take out your sword and after a few hits they will run away leaving Princess Yuki.

Meanwhile in Samanouske's mind he meets the Clan of Ogres and is given a gauntlet from the clans leader.Then he is brought back to life and receives instructions on how to use the gauntlet.

TACTICS: The best tactics for this boss is to run up to him and either use a magic attack or just hit him repeatibly.If your RAZIAN is at level 3 then you'll make short work of him.If you use the lightning attack then he'll give you lots of souls.Soon he'll turn red and will start to charge at you.When he does this run away and attack him when he bangs into a wall. ___________________________________________________________________ After Orsic dies a new path will appear.Go through it and open the chest for another scroll.Go through the door and in the next room look for a piece of FLUORITE behind the vases.Then go through the hallway with blue torches on the wall and go into the next room to meet Guildstern.After a small chat he'll release a Reynaldo.

BOSS:FORTINBRAS ===================================================================== Moves:Each of Fortinbras moves are deadly and precise.The battleground is the large chamber and the camera angle focuses on Fortinbras himself. EYEBEAM: A huge yellow laser beam comes from his eyes and goes up and down the room.The best way to avoid this is to side-step or stay at one the back corners. FIREBLAST: this move can only be avoided if you stay in one of the back corners. Fortinbras spews a large wave of fire across the room from left to right twice. THUNDERSHOCK: Several pink orbs are put in the air and send waves of electricity down into the ground.To avoid them you can see where they move by looking at their shadows and staying either inside them or away from them. GROUND SWIPE: Basically he moves his hand horizontally just above the ground.To avoid this stay in the back of the room. HEAD SMASH: Fortinbras smashes you to the ground and you may lose a lot of energy.To avoid this move side-step. DEMON BREATH: This is his most powerful and most annoying move in the whole game.Fortinbras picks you up and takes you up to his mouth and breathes fire onto your tiny body.Avoid this by keeping away from his body when he is mobbing his hand. to defeat Fortinbras keep bashing his snake-like body until his head falls down.Then when this happens hit his eye. If you have the BISHAMON SWORD it will be easy.If you have hit his eye many times then here is a tip to get his head down much quicker:Use lightning and fire attacks and then hit his eye with the BISHAMON SWORD. If you don't have the BISHAMON SWORD here's what to do. Use the SHIPPUU to hack at his body and then hit his eye with the ENRYUU.After a while hack at his body with the SHIPPUU again but then use a lightning attack on his eye.When you he is dead you can sit down and watch the ending. 9.Secrets: ========== Well you've finished the game but have you done everything?
