Secrets

  • Alternate Credit Portraits and Dialog

    After making the rocket that leads you to the last cave, do NOT talk to Momorin to get your booster back. Instead just take the rocket and keep your Mimiga Mask. There will be some dialog change after this point and some of the portraits displayed during the credits will be altered as well.
