I am sure it is not perfect but if you have hints or other stuff not found in this faq (or worthy to be included in this faq as well) then don't hesitate to email me. Kindly specify in the subject that you are sending something regarding this game otherwise it will be discarded as junk email. Questions are also welcome. If you have questions and suggestions, kindly email me. I will gladly reply to them whenever I can.

Finding yourself working under the Narumi Detective Agency, you'll encounter a mysterious girl that is then kidnapped by some strange red soldiers. Everything now sets into motion as you are thrown in a mission to rescue the kidnapped girl and discover a large web of contreversy and deceit that leads to a much greater evil. ============================================================ <><><><><><><> GAMEPLAY CONTROLS / GAME BASICS GBP000 <><><><><><> ============================================================ [GPB001] Field Controls: Left analog stick/directional buttons - Move character/Navigate menus X - Action Window commands/Confirm menu chocies /\ - Open the map () - Cancel  - Open the menu L1 - Use a demon investigation skill (only when available) R1 - Open the investigation menu [GPB002] Battle Controls: (Raidou) Left analog stick/directional buttons - Move character/Navigate menus X - Guard /\ - Gun attacks () - Confinement  - Sword Attack  + X - Special attack / Double team attack with your demon.

No guard crush to worry about. * One press of the /\ button automatically fires 3 shots. Gun attacks are not triggered as one shot per button press. * Pressing  3 times will allow you to do a 3 hit combo. The last strike is oftentimes the hardest and you cannot do more than a 3 hit slash. * Pressing  and the L analog to a direction performs a quick thrust or stab. This inflicts critical damage but not as damaging as the combo. Very useful in reaching enemies at decent range. * Press and hold  will allow you to 'Charge'. You can then release it to swing your sword around, knocking back most enemies. Useful when surrounded or if you want to damage a group of enemies. * When your Demon's morale is high (increases while you fight but fills faster when you inflict ciritical hits), his status will be blinking green. Press the  and X to activate the demon's special attack. Remember that your demon must learn his special attack first before you can use it. You can't also activate it if you and your demon have status ailments. [GPB005] BATTLE TIPS - ISSUING COMMANDS TO DEMONS (Press R1 during battles) ---------------------------------------- * Listen to my orders -- Allows you to specify a target and the corresponding action of your demon. * Use physical attacks -- Demon will resort in attacking the enemy up front * Use magic attacks -- Demon will burn MP while attacking with magic only * Heal/Support me -- Keeping yourselves healed up becomes the priority of your demon. He will still block, cast spells etc. * Don't waste MP -- Demon Will keep watch of his MP I leave it to you -- Allows the demon to decide freely. ============================================================ <><><><><> GENERAL GAMEPLAY HINTS (Read this first) GPH000 <><><><> ============================================================ * Your gun is a combo starter. IT can stun most enemies, which gives you the oppurtunity to attack them while open. In the duration of the game, you will have access to special bullets that has elemental properties or cause status ailments. If a demon is weak to a certain element and you exploited it, you will be able to land critical strikes. * During boss fights, try experimenting with diffrent demon spells and bullets to know the weakness of the boss. Also bringing out a demon that can nullify or absorb the elemental attack of the boss can be very helpful. * Always bring a healer demon with you. It is a very invaluable asset. Not to mention to bring along almost one kind of each demon class to make sure you can bring them up when stuck on a place or something [GPH001] CONFINING / CAPTURING DEMONS ---------------------------- * Press the () button as fast as you can when capturing demons. Remember that you can only capture demons if their weakness has been exploited and they are defenseless. Demons that are in the same level as yours or below can be captured. Some demons however can't be confined during full moon or its just they can't be confined at all. There are certain demons however that you can ONLY capture during a Full Moon. Also, note that you must have an available slot or tube. Obtaining higher ranks by increasing max demon loyalty allows you to gain more tubes. [GPH002] INVESTIGATING WITH DEMONS ---------------------------- * As a detective, you'll need to uncover clues in order to proceed. Demons have their own investigative ability that will help you a lot when getting information that can't be obtained by normal conversation with people. They also help you discover hidden items and entrances. Summoning a demon also consumes MAG. Don't worry since MAG can be earned in battle DEMON CLASS PRIMARY INV SKILL EFFECT ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Pagan Read Mind Can be used on people or animals. Very useful when extracting hidden information that can't be brought up by normal conversations. Volt Inspect Can be used anywhere; It allows you to detect any hidden items or entrances. Use it in strange looking places. Wind Scout Provides you with info about the common enemies that can be encountered around the area, all items that are not yet collected, and sometimes, a random item found by the demon. Frost Cool Down Opposite of 'IGNITE', this can be used to calm a panicked or overexcited persons. Pyro Ignite Warms the heart of the target and kindles their resolve. Very effective to use on a downhearted citizen. Fury Use Force Very useful when moving large objects that are blocking the way. Other skills such as SNEAK and FLY requires a demon to be solo. [GPH003] POINTS OF INTEREST --------------------------- These are certain places that you will be visiting more than twice in order to proceed with the story. PLACE DISTRICT DESCRIPTION --------------------------------------------------------- Narumi Detective Agency Tsukudo-Cho This is your home. Obviously. Konnou-Ya Tsukudo-Cho Item shop/ Entrance to Gouma-Den Gouma-Den Tsukudo-Cho Victor's LAB Nameless Shrine Shinoda Entry point to the Dark Realms of the capital, place where Raidou also gets Title promotions Daikoku-Yu Fukagawa-Cho Yakuza bathouse. Satake helps Raidou by providing info Shin-Sekai (Soda Joint) Ginza-Cho A local hangout of Tae and other summoner related stuff. [GPH004] GOUMA-DEN (VICTOR'S LAB) ------------------------ Its your friendly neighborhood demon center. This a great place to heal, combine and strengthen your demons. IT IS RECOMMENDED that you REGISTER your demons whenever you can. This allows you to keep the latest stat info for the demons you owned. COMBINING DEMONS ------------------------- This is a great way of increasing the stats of your demons, giving them new abilities or simply you want to create a entirely new demon. Fused, sacrificed and forged demons will be gone forever. However you can buy them again from Victor. BINARY FUSION This is the typical method for producing an entirely new different species from the parent demons. Solid colored () indicate perfect combinations, an empty () indicates a mutation. ? means that a random demon will be born from the parennts and a /\ indicates poor fusion. Stat wise, fused demons are really powerful. SACRIFICE Its a method where a demon is fused to another demon to increase it's stats. It can also be used to get the ability of the sacrificed demon. It is possible to create the ultimate demon using this method. FORGE This is a method where a demon of yours will be fused with your sword. This gives additional strength and attack power. It also changes the name of your sword. ============================================================ <><><><><><><><><><> WALKTHROUGH SMT000 <><><><><><><><> ============================================================ Note: You can wander around do some power leveling and exploring. The timeline in this game is not strict so unless you trigger the necessary events, the story won't proceed. I will be putting everything down in an outline format so it can be easily followed and read. Spoilers will be avoided as much as possible, without affecting the comprehensivity of this faq.

Talk to Narumi again to obtain Y1000 2. Talk to the man in front of the Agency. Summon Ukobach and IGNITE him to get a Butterfly Brooch. 3. Go west then up north to reach Daidouji Residence. Optional: There is a man near the bridge looking for a Ox-Bexoar for his wife. If you are able to find one, give it to him to recieve Y2000 ##Daidouji Residence## 1. Upon arriving, some events will take place. Show the butler Kaya's brooch. After that send your demon for a solo investigation to the East passage door. 2. Go to the very end of the room and find a photo of Kaya. ##Tsukudo-Cho## 1. GO south of to Kamishiro-Zaku then talk to the school girls there. Then take the alley to the east, you should find Rin, Kaya's best friend. When you try to get near her, she gets sucked into the Dark Realm. !!Note: Try to capture a Pagan Alp for a healer. Stock also on healing items since you're going to need it. 2. Take a streetcar ride to Shinoda. Enter the Nameless Shrine. ##Nameless Shrine## 1. Save your game then call forth the keeper. Perform ritual of entry and enter Dark Tsukudo-Cho. ##Dark Tsukudo-Cho## The layout of the area is the same but there are new items that can be collected. Starting from the bridge, the path to the right has an item (that can only be reached by a solo demon with FLY ability) and in the left, (small docks) just use INSPECT and you should find yourself an item. 1. The path to the boss is blocked by a Dragon's jaw, a magical barrier preventing any entry. So, take the alley to the East, heading towards Konnou-Ya. Continue north to the direction of the Detective Agency and find some annoying critters. Engage a battle with them. !!Try to confine one Volt Agathion, you will need it to destroy yet another type of wall. 2. Take the West alley then to the stairs. A Shikimi no Kage will block the way. Enter battle with it. So if you have an Agathion captured, summon it and have it do its work. You'll also get a tutorial about Shikimi no Kages 3. Once the wall is destroyed, head up and prepare yourself for a boss battle. (Tsuchigumo x3) **These guys hit hard and can poison you. So at your level, I think its not necessary to allow yourself getting mobbed in the middle. So concentrate on one target at a time. You can block first and look for an opening. Don't hesitate to use healing items or just force your demon to heal you. On the offensive side, you can order Ukobach to fry the enemy. 4. After the boss fight and rescuing Rin, take the portal home. ##Tsukudo-Cho## 1. Go to the south, near the bridge. Talk to the schoolgirls and choose the 2nd option in the conversation.

A new object will be discovered. 2. Pick up and read the "Demon of this Earth" to open the entrance underground. Go down and take the left path after the bridge to find an item then take the right path to find the Large Tarrasque. 3. Talk to it and learn that he needs a RED WINE, back in town. Exit the place and make your way to Tsukudo-Cho. ##Tsukudo-Cho## 1. As you enter from the north, you should see the servant on the side of the road. Summon a Pagan demon and use the READ MIND skill on the woman. Talk to the servant again and ask if she is alright. She will then give you the RED WINE. 2. Go back to Daidouji Residence and to the underground cavern. ##Daidouji Residence## 1. Head down to the underground cavern and save your game. Summon a fire demon and prepare for a boss fight. 2. Talk to the Tarrasque again, give him the Red Wine but he will still battle you. **Fire is its weakness. Since there are two additional enemies summoned, take care of them first. Just remember to block when you see the tarrasque getting ready. When his HP goes below 20%, the battle ends automatically. 3. Talk to the Tarrasque after the battle. He will ask for the Pricey Beer. Give it to him and he will give you a ride to the other side of the cavern. 4. Go to the end of the path and find a cell. Use your Volt demon's INSPECT ability to unravel an object on the ground. Pick it up and obtain Kaya's Diary. Its time to leave the place. 5. On your way out, you will be ambushed by some skeletetons. You'll enter another boss fight. **(Pgn Gashadokuro) Try to concentrate on the main boss since he can summon minions infinitely. Get rid of the smaller ones if they get in your way. He has an electric magic attack so remember to block when you see him charging. 6. Save before going up to the residence. Have your demon do a solo investigation to the Eastern door (where the butler doesnt allow you to enter). Eavesdrop the conversation. Return to the detective agency (or just warp there via field menu - R1) to get more info. ##Tsukudo-Cho## 1. After talking to Narumi in the detective agency, go back to the residence ##Daidouji Residence## 1. Talk to the Butler and enter the Living Room. An event will take place. 2. Go back to the main hall for yet another boss fight. **(Wind Ichimokuren) Take note that you can't damage this boss with its eyes closed. So, take out his minions. Once he opens his eyes, attack! This boss is weak to lightning to a Volt Demon will be very useful in this fight. Just order it to attack with Magic. Remember to block the boss' spinning attack (can knock you down). You can tell this if he is floating higher. -- END OF EPISODE 1 -- <THE MISSING GIRL> ()()()(|| ** ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ *||)()()()() ------------------------------------- SMT003 --- [EPISODE 2 - The Red Cape] ------------------------------------- ##Tsukudo-Cho## 1.

Go to Konnou-Ya (old man's shop, LOL) and buy a lockpick. If you don't have enough money, get yourself in some battles until you earned enough. 2. Once you have the lockpick, exit to the main map and take a streetcar ride to the Nameless Shrine. ##Shinoda## 1. Ring the bell (uh-huh) and talk to the Herald. Choose to be transported to Dark Fukogawa-Cho. ##Dark Fukogawa-Cho## 1. You will need to make your way past those Red Guards and back to Denpachi's cell. Make sure you have a Demon with FLY ability.

Continue to the empty street. Destroy the Bullet Shikimi no Kage with your gun. Unlock the gate in the end of the street to reach Denpachi's cell. 6. Release Denpachi, then enter a battle against the Red Guards. **Take out the gunner first. Since their moves are predictable, its easy to block their attacks.

Make sure you order your volt demon to use magical attacks only on the boss. Grab the oppurtunity to inflict critical damage on him and it will be better if your demon has learned its double team attack skill. If his health drops down to 50%, he will begin casting Megido, which is unblockable. Be sure to run away from it. It has some recovery time so at least hit him with a quick thrust and then guard to be safe. After you brought his HP down to 30% he will start using his Trailing Death skill, an attack that can stun you for a few seconds and that means free hits from him. So it if you think you have troubles keeping up, switch to your healer demon and command it to heal/support you. 5. After some scenes, episode ends. -- END OF EPISODE 4 -- <THE CASE OF THE MISSING SHIPMENTS> ()()()(|| ** ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ *||)()()()() --------------------------------------- SMT006 --- [EPISODE 5 - Confrontation ] --------------------------------------- ##Tsukudo-Cho## After the scene, take the street car to Kasumidai. ##Kasumidai## 1. You will find Tae in the plaza. Head north to proceed with the story. 2. Go to the east use a pyro demon's IGNITE ability on the cannon. 3. Go back to the North and talk to the soldier near the Guard Box. 4. After talking to the soldier, go back to the plaza. Pick up the shining on the ground. Obtain Tae's Camera. Dark Kasumidai will be accessible. 5. Leave the area and go back to Tsukudo-Cho. ##Tsukudo-Cho## 1. Go to Konnou-ya and pay Y3000 to develop the film inside the camera. Restock on items if you need to. Also stock on bullets since you'll need them in the next boss battle. 2. Go to Shinoda/ Nameless Shrine and visit Dark Kasumidai ##Dark Kasumidai## 1. YOu will need to fight some Zombie officers as soon as you enter the area. Do not worry, they are slow and their attacks can be predicted. 2. Afte the battle, go to west and witness some friendly undead officers chatting. You will then need to collect all 8 reports. Most of the reports can be found by using a Volt Demon's INSPECT ability. Report 1 -- Near the cannon at West Report 2 -- North-West area, near the demon. Report 3 -- At the intersection near the zombie officers Report 4 -- Behind the Guard Box in the North Report 5 -- Eastern road, summon a demon with SNEAK ability and have it go on a solo investigation on the second hole. Report 6 -- In the South-West. Summon a flying demon and have it go on a solo investigation behind the statue. Report 7 -- North-East corner, above the tree. Summon a flying demon to get the report. Report 8 -- Eastern road; just keep running around until you have a battle with a group of zombie officers. 3. After collecting all reports, head back to your starting point and save. Give the reports to Sadakachi and a boss battle will initiate. **Pgn Nebiros This is not a hard boss at all. Just take note that you can't damage him with physical attacks. Only spells and bullets will work here. He also summons minions infinitely. So, focus you gun attacks on the boss, and slash the lesser minions if they get in the way. 4. After winning the battle, you will recieve a passcode to enter the hidden facility. Leave the area and summon the tarrasque in any of the docks. (Blue dots in the main map.) 5. Travel the waters east and dismount on the single small island just off the coast of Harumi-Cho ##Cannon Battery #4## 1. Use the passcode 49399221 to gain access to the entrance on the underground shipyard. !!Note: The battles here may be challenging depending on your level. Make sure you've stock up with lots of support items if you want to survive this stage. Also, some enemies here nets you 1000 exp per battle. So if you want to, this place is best for exp farming. And the fact that you can only access this area once. You can come back later in the story but enemies don't that much experience anymore. This area has a high encounter rate so repulse water won't help you. 2. Collect the items and make your way down. There are some Shikimi no Kages scattered in the area so just use the appropriate element or spell to destroy them. 3. When you encounter a regenerating Shikimi no Kage, find an Ippon-datara in the bottom ladder. Negotiate with him and give him Ex-Bezoar x2 and 150 MAG. Then tell him that he's stupid. You can then now pass the blocked path. Dont forget to climb up the ladder first because it contains some items. 4. After this, its pretty much a straight path minus the other Shikimi no Kages and the random battles. Once you found the Dragon Cave, you can now start exp farming with the enemies. 5. Once ready, head to the altar and face the demon twins. **Nagasunehiko, Abihiko Nagasunehiko is an ice elemental while Abihiko is the opposite. You can try focusing on one boss at a time. However, if one of them is killed, they will fuse into one more powerful, dual-element entity. If the two of them are still alive, they will perform an unblockable spin attack which is hard to evade as well and packs a punch. Just have your demons support you as you exploit their weakness and land critical hits. Summoning a demon with a combination attack learned will give you an easier battle. Be sure to guard their magical attacks when you see them charging. 6. Watch the scenes, episode ends. -- END OF EPISODE 5 -- <CONFRONTATION> ()()()(|| ** ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ *||)()()()() --------------------------------------------- SMT007 --- [EPISODE 6 - Secret Of Five Fudou] --------------------------------------------- ##Tsukudo-Cho## 1. Go to Konnou-ya and pick the Ammunition Box. Go back to the Detective Agency. Scenes will follow. Now go to Victor in Gouma-Den. 2. Leave the area and take the streetcar. ##Fukagawa-Cho## 1. Go to Daikoku-Yu, talk to Satake. 2. Leave the area and go the Amazing Science Lab, in the southeast ##Amazing Science Lab## 1. Enter the place and use the READ MIND skill on the huskey. You will then need to type your 'dream'. Write it down or remember it since you will meet the dog again near the end of the game as a spirit. Tell him the dream you told him and you will have access to extra items. 2. Go to the rightmost side of the area to trigger a scene with Dr. Tsukumo. 3. Leave the area, proceed to Ginza-Cho. ##Ginza-Cho## 1. Enter the Soda Joint in Shin-Sekai and talk to Tae. After learning some hints, go to the main town. 2. Go underneath the overpass, in the same place where you fought the Red Cape. The costruction site is just between the two paths. You will then have a scene with Kaya. -- END OF EPISODE 6 -- <SECRET OF FIVE FODOU> ()()()(|| ** ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ *||)()()()() --------------------------------------------- SMT008 --- [EPISODE 7 - The Cursed Detective] --------------------------------------------- Watch the scenes and you will be in the Nameless Shrine. You will be asked if you want to be sacrificed. You will need to got to Dark Fukagawa-Cho. ##Dark Fukagawa-Cho## 1. Go southeast. You will trigger a trap and two stupid floating skulls will appear. After some brief talking, you will be transported to the north. 2. Make your way to the south east again and this time take another path. Another trap will be triggered and the same duo appears. You will be transported to the north again. 3. Summon a volt demon and INSPECT the area. If nothing appears by the red mailbox, make your way to the southeast again to trigger the trap and get the hint from the stupid demons themselves. Otherwise, just examine the shining thing on the mailbox after inspecting the area. You will have another boss fight. *** Pagan Utai-gaikotsu (x2) Nothing special about this fight; just apply normal combat strategies for these scumbags. Oh, just watch out also to their skill that can immobilize you. 4.After they are defeated, proceed southeast and continue your advance. Destroy any Shikimi no Kages you encounter and then save your game before entering the square. Prepare for another bossfight. *** Wind Hitokotomusi This boss has 4 forms. On his form, use Fire attacks to weaken him and land some criticals. Again, demons with combination attacks learned will help a lot here. Most of his attacks are blockable so anticipate his attacks and make sure you guard them. Having a demon with wind resistance, drain or null will make your life easier. On his second form, use electric attacks, and ice for the third. The strategy mentioned above will suffice for these forms. Lastly, when he releases his final form, just use normal attacks to finish him off. 5. Episode ends after the battle. -- END OF EPISODE 7 -- <THE CURSED DETECTIVE> ()()()(|| ** ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ *||)()()()() ------------------------------------------------------ SMT009 --- [EPISODE 8 - The Demon And The Steel Tower] ------------------------------------------------------ ##Tsukudo-Cho## Restock supplies, then leave via streetcar to Harumi-Cho ##Harumi-Cho## Leave the area via south exit. Take the road down and talk to the guard blocking the path on the main map. You will now have access to enter Sakuradayama. ##Sakuradayama## 1.Use the Pagan Demon's READ MIND skill on the guards inside the area. You can also use INSPECT to find some hidden items in the area. You will also gain access to Dark Sakuradayama. 2.Leave the area and go to Shinoda/Nameless Shrine. ##Dark Sakuradayama## 1. There are some hidden items in the area so make sure your Volt Demon INSPECTS the area. 2. Save your game, then go upstairs for a boss fight. ***Yomi-kugutsu x3 Two gunners and one melee fighter. These gun-weilding red soldiers probably pose the threat here. The melee Yomi-kugutsu always performs a combo but is slow when executing it. Just remember to block when cornered. It will be a good idea to take out the gunners first. If you see them getting ready to fire their machine guns, quickly move to their side or back and score some free hits. 3. After the battle, take the path upstairs and enter the tower. ##Waden One## 1. When navigating this area, you may need to send your demons alone to reach some places since some hiruko doesnt like humans. The other paths should be obviously easy so I won't waste time giving directions step by step. However, the last series of individual and hiruko rides can be confusing. 2. The area I am talking about is the last obstacle to reach the boss in the top of the tower. To proceed, just ride the hiruko to reach the island where the Moh Shuvuu is. 3. Send your demon on a solo investigation, then ride the same hiruko you used to reach the island. Then ride right, up, left then down then report to Raidou. Ride the hiruko your demon used and continue. 4. Upon reaching the top, there will be some scenes and after that a boss battle. ***Volt Mishaguji This boss has a lot of HP, probably 7000+ or so, so its going to be a long battle. All his attacks can be blocked except the Cursed Emission which follows you for a period of time then paralyzes you when it hits. A healer demon while in Heal Me/ Support command can help you survive. The enemy will likely be targetting you than your demon so remember to guard his attacks then just counter after he is done with his combo. He also teleports within the area so expect that he will perform a combo after teleporting. Note also that his swipe attack has long reach and can knock you down but it is still blockable. Halfway on his health, he will start using his Cursed Bolts, a series of four lightning bolts that travels by land. It also has a CHARM effect. It is blockable though. One effective tactic to prevent your demon from being Charmed is to unsummon / return it if you see the boss holding this staff on the ground. You can hold the guard button while doing that. Or, you can just use an ANTI-MIND item when your demon is inflicted with Charm status. Beware if your demon is a healer and it is charmed. It will heal the boss with around 1500 HP a spell so be cautious. Just repeat the mentioned strategy above and you should be okay. 5. After the battle, some scenes will follow and the episode end. -- END OF EPISODE 8 -- <THE DEMON AND THE STEEL TOWER> ()()()(|| ** ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ *||)()()()() ------------------------------------------ SMT010 --- [EPISODE 9 - The Two Summoners] ------------------------------------------ ##Tsukudo-Cho## 1. After being transported, you will find another Gouto-look alike cat. Follow it to the Shrine. A scene will ensue. 2. After the scene, leave the area and go to the Nameless Shrine. ##Shinoda/ Nameless Shrine## 1. After learning about the current situation, you will be tasked to obtain 3 prisms from guardians located in Dark Sakuradayama, Dark Ginza-Cho and Dark Harumi-Cho. It doesnt matter which you choose first 2. Just restock your supplies and make sure you have all bullet types in full ammo. This ensures you the flexibility in battle. ##Dark Sakuradayama## 1. Go to the east to obtain to Sword of Kashima. You need to synch all stones with the sword but since they respond to the other stones, some stones will deactivate if you activate another. Refer to the outline below: ------------- Temple ------------- (3) (6) (2) (5) (1) (4) X -- Starting Point **Examine Stone # 1 **Examine Stone # 2 **Send your demon on a Solo Investigation, examine stone # 5 2. After solving the puzzle, the guardian will appear and you need to fight him to obtain the Earth Prism. ***Volt Oumitsunu The minions around the boss may be annoying so you can use Charm shots to inflict Charm on the minions and turn them against the main boss temporarily. Just anticipate the enemies' attacks and block them whenever you can. The enemies here can cast fire and electric spells so be careful of your summoned demon's weakness. Just keep pounding on the boss and he should go down in a short while. 3. After obtaining the Earth Prism, you can head back to Tsukudo-Cho to restock or go to your next destination. You need to talk to the Herald in Shinoda/ Nameless Shrine. ##Dark Ginza-Cho## !!You need a fury demon with uSE FORCE skill to conquer this area. 1. Follow the path without any blocking Dragon's Jaws (they appear as green lines in your map) and fight a Pyro Muspell along the way. 2. Continue moving forward and find a bus blocking the path. Summon your Fury demon and remove the obstacle. Now take the first path on your left and send your demon on a solo investigation to pass through the Tainted Gate. Make sure that you send your best demon since it will enter a boss fight alone. Or to save time, if you have a good levelled Fury demon, just send it. 3. Follow the path and take the go around the corner. Your demon will need to defeat the Pyro Muspell from before. After that, USE FORCE on the bus make way for Raidou. 4. Report to Raidou and make your way to the stairs to get to the overpass. You will find the next guardian there so be prepared. ***Fury Susan-o. Since this enemy is weak to ice attacks, it may seem advisable to use Frost Demons. To make the battle easier, dispatch his minions or just pummel him with ice bullets. (If you bought an ice cartridge, your ammo should be x99, making things more easier.) Just deal some critical hits when he is stunned and repeat the process until he is defeated. 5. Obtain the Flame prism and leave the area. ##Dark Harumi-Cho## 1. Talk to the Fury Shouten beside the Dragon Cave. Learn that you need to collect 9 purity charms before he can take you to the last guardian. 2. Just roam the area to find random battles with Shoutens. There is one demon selling a charm for Y20000, it depends whether you can afford it or not. Just remember that there are items in the residential area of Harumi-Cho. 3. After collecting charms, go back to the Shouten, save then talk to him. You will now face the guardian of the Water Prism. ***Frost Orochi This enemy is weak against fire so you can order your pyro demon to use magical attacks while you attack in close. Just guard against its ice area attack and its melee attacks as well. The boss doesn't move and has slow recovery rate so it will be open after attacking. Use this short time to deal extra damage. Don't use guns in this battle. 4. After defeating Orochi, obtain the Water prism. 5. Leave the area and go back to the Nameless Shrine. ##Shinoda/ Nameless Shrine## Talk to the Herald and Watch the following scenes. Episode ends after that. -- END OF EPISODE 9 -- <THE TWO SUMMONERS> ()()()(|| ** ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ *||)()()()() -------------------------------------------- SMT011 --- [EPISODE 10 - Capital In Flames!] -------------------------------------------- ##Tsukudo-Cho## After getting back in the Detective Agency, notice that Harumi is not there. Find a letter instead. Leave the area and take a streetcar to Harumi-Cho. ##Harumi-Cho## 1. Locate Sadakichi in the south area of the town. Talk to him. 2. Head back to the Agency to watch more scenes. You will then obtain the Chigaeshi Orb and Shiomitsu Orbs. 3. Summon your tarrasque in a dock. Go to the landing point in the southeastern most part of the Harumi-Cho. There is a long path there leading to an isolated place just north of the Army HQ. ##Kasuminomori## !!You need a Fury Demon's USE FORCE skill to proceed! 1. Put the orbs on their respective statues. 2. Summon a Fury demon and USE FORCE the left statue. 3. Stand on one plate and have your demon go solo and stand on the other plate. The entrance to the Subterranean Shipbuilding Facility will now be accessible via the well. ##Subterranean Shipbuilding Facility## B1. Destroy the Fire Shikimi no Kage and take the Heavy x15 bullet rounds behind. Jump off the left Ledge, then choose to jump to the right. B2. Destroy Electric Shikimi no Kage. B3. Defeat the enemies blocking your way. Find a Tainted Gate that is blocking your path. Make your way back to B2. B2. Jump off the ledge then take the left side. Climb the ladder to go back to B1. B1. Go north and destroy the Ice Shikimi no Kage. head down to B2 B2. Destroy the Wind Shikimi no Kage, and then talk to the Ippon-datara. watch the scenes that will follow and go back to the area where the Tainted Gate is once located. Head to the next area. 1. Destroy the Bullet Shikimi no Kage and get the item behind it. Go downstairs and find a Balm of Life in B4. 2. Take the ladder in B3 leading to B4's other side. Move forward until you get a scene with Narumi. 3. Save your game and take the staircase nearby and go left for a Lu Incense, a Vi Insance and a Soma. Backtrack a bit and go to the Altar for a battle. ***Tokoyogami Sukuna-hikona The enemy is weak to fire and force magical attacks but he can nullify gunshots. You can summon your Pyro and Wind demons to help you out in the offensive. Just remember to guard when you sense him readying for an attack. Since this boss moves around rather quickly, it will be hard to hit him with combos. That's where the dash/ quick stab helps. When his HP is down to at least 60-70% he will start summoning Hirukos to attack you. You will be immobilized when you get hit by these Hirukos. After that, expect that he will blast you with a powerful beam attack. Demons hit by these attacks will be sEALED, meaning you cannot summon them anymore during the whole battle. You can return your demons to prevent them from being hit by the boss' special attack but its a risk that you'll be damaged instead. You can order your demons to use magic attacks only while you take care of the main damage. 3, After the battle, head east to trigger an event. Episode ends after that. -- END OF EPISODE 10 -- <CAPITAL IN FlAMES> ()()()(|| ** ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ *||)()()()() ------------------------------------------ SMT012 --- [EPISODE 11 - Mission To Space] ------------------------------------------ ##Tsukudo-Cho## 1.

Talk to Sadakichi and obtain the SS Project Report. 3. Go back to the Lab and surrender the report to the Dr. 4. Go back to Tsukudo-Cho ##Tsukudo-Cho## 1. Go to Gouma-Den and talk to Victor. You will then need to leave to Ginza-Cho. 2. Go to Shin-Sekai and enter the Soda Joint. Find Rasputin there courting Tae. After the scene there, choose to "SMACK HIM" 3. You will taken to Gouma-Den instantly. After the scene, go back to the Lab. ##Amazing Science Lab## !!If you still haven't, make sure all your demons are registered in Victor's database. 1. Talk to Dr. Tsukumo. You will need to send a demon up there. Since it will fight alone, I suggest sending a demon that heal itself and has good attack/ magic offense. This demon will be gone forever though. 2. Watch the scenes that'll follow. ##Tai-itsu## ***Satellite Tai-itsu Core, Defense System x3 The core is protected by the defense systems surrounding it. And not to mention that this core is protected by infinitely spawning Wind Powers Make your way and destroy all the defense systems. Once the systems are destroyed, you can now start attacking the core. 1. After the battle, watch the events and the episode will end. -- END OF EPISODE 11 -- <MISSION TO SPACE> ()()()(|| ** ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ *||)()()()() ------------------------------------------ SMT013 --- [EPISODE 12 - Bonds Between Us] ------------------------------------------ ##Fukagawa-Cho## 1.

Talk to Tae in the Soda Joint. After the scene, go to Dark Tsukudo-Cho. ##Dark Tsukudo-Cho## !!NOte: This is the final stage so make sure you are prepared. Be at least LV 60+ to have an easier time navigating the stage. Also, make sure you are fully stocked before heading in. Go to the edge of the bridge for a scene. ##Akarana Corridor## You need to destroy hourglasses in each section in order to proceed. This means you will face all major bosses you have defeated before. Same battle tactics you used on them will also work. Note that there are some hidden portals here that can take you to areas full of items. You can only find it using a Volt Demon's INSPECT ability. This area is large and the enemies can really kill you if you're not careful. It is general knowledge to save your game whenever you find a Dragon's Cave. !!Make sure you have a demon with ALLURE ability. Its a requirement to proceed deeper in this stage. - 1930s - * Just go up. - 1940s - * Go to the end of the path, destroy the Hourglass to fight Wind Ichimokuren. - 1950s - * Just make your way to the next area. - 1960s - * Find a Dragon's Cave, continue moving forward. - 1980s - * Just make your way to the next area. - 1990s - * Use ALLURE on the Fury Ikusa and Fury Oni. Take the portal on the left. - 2030s - * Save your game in the Dragon's Cave on the left. - 2040s - * Have your demon go solo then move it LEFT, LEFT then RIGHT. Portal will be activated. Warp to the next area, examine the Hourglass and choose to destroy it. Defeat Wind Hitokotonusi to unlock a new area. - 2030s - * Backtrack to 1990's - 1990s - * Take the newly opened path to 2000 - 2000s - * There is a Dragon's Cave here and a Nakisawame. - 2010s - * Move Raidou to left twice then send your demon on solo and move it to the right.

Last Boss !! Note: You will be asked if want to continue or not to the final battle. If you want to take other path and collect the items, backtrack to the second path. - 20XX (Item Path) - * You will need to solve another puzzle. Refer to the solutions below. Frost demon - LEFT Volt demon - LEFT Fury demon - RIGHT Pagan demon - RIGHT * The portal will be activated. Warp to the next area for your rewards. - 20XX (Boss Path) - * Save your game; If you talk to the spirit on the left, you will learn that it was the dog in the Science Lab. Tell him your dream, the one you told him and you will recieve a bonus... * There is also a Nakisawane here for healing. But it is rather costly depending on your and your demons' average level. Just use it if you really need to. Otherwise upstairs to face the final boss. ***Presence within Kaya She attacks fast and has high recovery rate, meaning there is only a brief moment of delay between her attacks. She hits hard so make sure to guard her attacks and make two slashes only at a time. Performing a 3rd slash will not give you enough time to block her attacks in time. If you decide to use your demons against her, make sure you order them to attack with magic only. After the battle, prepare for her second form. ***Battleship Yasomagatsu The pattern for this battle is very obvious. Defeat all 4 waves/ pairs of enemies that will appear. Be careful with the artillery shots from the battle ship. Using a Pyro demon will help a lot since they can Drain or nullify the artillery attacks. After the waves of enemies are defeated, the battleship will resurface nearby. When that happens, attack it with all you got. Just ignore the gunners on the top since they are just there for annoyance and not for damage. Repeat the process twice or thrice to end the battle. Prepare for the 3rd form... ***Soulless God Yasomagatsu The shoulder cannon attacks can be dodged easily but do no step on the flames the shot left. You just need to deal with the L and R arms after every attack. The Soulless Beam sprays in a straight line and its unblockable. So avoid it by moving out of the line of fire. This boss may also attempt to smash you with both hands so quickly run to the edge of the battle area. After destroying both hands, the battle will end. Had enough? Well, prepare for the last form... *****Soulless God Yasomagatsu Soulless Rain is a new attack for this boss. Just avoid the salvo being fired at you. Running in the side gives you the best position to avoid these projectiles since they cannot be blocked. There will be delays between her attacks so use this ample time to damage her with your combos. As for her other attacks, like many other bosses, you can anticipate when you need to block or not. Just don't be too aggressive since this boss hits harder than the previous forms. Make sure your HP is always above 60% at least. Use items whenever necessary. Just apply the most basic boss battle tactic: guard and counterattack. Just repeat the process and this battle should be easy. -- END OF EPISODE 12 -- <BONDS BETWEEN US> Game ends, enjoy the credits. ============================================================ <><><><><><><> EXTRAS EXT000 <><><><><><> ============================================================ [TRN001] TRAINING HALLS ------------------------- There are 4 training halls scattered around the map.
