3. Main Menu

This section is about the main menu that can be accessed during anytime in the
game when there is no battle
occurring. Here is the original text in the game and the translation as follows.
Below this are the descriptions of what
the menu options do individually. These options appear from top to bottom in the

a.  ‘Š ’k - Talk
b.  “Ή‹ο - Items
c.  εδ”υ - Equipment
d.  –@p - Spells
e.  ΪΧ - Details
f.  _ - Gods
g.  έ’θ - Options

Here are the options and what each option does in the game. This is a basic

a. ‘Š ’k - Talk

This option allows the player to review what is happening and see the
interaction between the characters. It is basically
a discussion between the characters and their comments and what they are
thinking during the situation.

b. “Ή‹ο - Items

This option allows the player to review what items the currently has. All items
including unequiped equipment will
be shown here.

c. εδ”υ - Equipment

This option allows the characters to change their equipment such as weapons and
armor and clothes gained by
the characters.

d. –@p - Spells

This option allows the player to view all the spells for each character
available. Each character has a set of spells
according to an element such as wind, fire, or earth spells.

e. ΪΧ - Details

This option allows the player to see all the status of the characters. It shows
the all the stats of the characters and
information on weapons and clothes the characters are wearing.

f. _ - Gods

This option allows the player to see all of the God names that the player has
collected so far and each status the
name can boost and decrease. These names relate to upgrading your characters so
try to find all of them. They
can be used at the Japanese Buddhist Jizo Figure (’n εU) where the player can
save and upgrade your characters
status (see section). For example, one god name will increase the number of hit
points and strength of the character
and also lower the character's wind attribute.

g. έ’θ - Options

This choice allows the player to change the graphic settings and volume settings
for the game.


4. Jinzo Statue (’n εU)

There are three options for the Jinzo statues. All Jinzo statues in the game
have the same options. These options follow
in the same order in the game. These options are listed from top to bottom
exactly the way they appear in the game.

#1 ‹L? ?? - Save
This is the save option. This allows the player to save the game on the memory
card in the first slot or the second slot.

#2 Level Up Status
This is where the player can use the god names they have found to upgrade their
characters. Each god name affects the
character's stats in a different way.

#3 Return to Map
This allows the player to return to the main map.

5. Leveling up stats

Within the game during the end of the introduction sequence, the characters will
gain the God names. Each God name will
have a different stat that it will boost or decrease a stat or stats. The
leveling system uses (ϊΊ) points and the only way to gain
these points is to have all on-screen characters use their single targeted
special attack. When a character is in the transformed
form use the yellow highlighted attack to contribute to gaining (ϊΊ) points.
Then go to the Japanese Buddhist Jizo Figure (’n εU)
and select the second option and use the God names to level up the stats.


6. Battle Menu

This is the battle menu when the characters trigger a battle on the world map.
When the character triggers a battle, the
screen turns a color then the characters are in battle with monsters. These
options are in order of appearance from top
to bottom as they appear in the game.

a. U? - Attack
b. –h‹š - Defense
c. –@p - Spells
d. _ ~ - "God Descent"??
e. ηzg - Transform
f. “Ή‹ο - Items
g. “¦‘– - Run Away

These are the options and what option can do during a turn in a battle.

a. U? - Attack
The command allows the character to do either a special attack or normal attack.
A special attack allows the character to
perform a special elemental attack that uses up MP.

b. –h‹š - Defense
The command allows the character to guard during this turn.

c. –@p - Spells
The command allows access to the special elemental spells each character has in
their arsenal.

d. _ ~ - God Descent ??
What this option does is unknown at this time. This section will be addressed in
future versions of this FAQ. It seems to allow the
summoning of gods to do something during the battle. It is inaccessible for the
first section of the game.

e. ηzg - Transform
The command allows the character to transform into their Oni forms. Not all
characters are able to transform at the beginning.
Transforming the character will use up a certain meter called (‹S S) that
cannot be replenished unless there is an Oni recovery
shrine on the world map.
When this meter is depleted, the character will go into berserk mode and this
will make the character that transforms uncontrollable.

f. “Ή‹ο - Items
The command allows the use of items during a battle phase. There are magic
points recovery items and hit points recovery items,
but there are no (‹S S) recovery points items.

g. “¦‘– - Run Away
The command allows all members to escape battle.


7. Regaining Health and Spirit

This is the default main character house name.
(“V ’n ŠΫ ? ‰Ζ )

The main character's house is the place to regain health and spirit, yet the
player cannot recover (‹S S) for transforming into
an Oni. The main character's house is the upper left house in the village. These
options are available in Chapter 1.

Mom and Dad are asking the main character would the main character rest for the
day or continue the play with his friends.
Mom offers the main character two choices. These choices are exactly how the
choices are laid out in the game.

#1 - Continue without regaining health and spirit. This option will continue the
game without replenishing health and magic.
#2 - Choose this option to rest and regain health and spirit. This option ends
the day the characters are in and they continue
their adventure the next day and begin again.

Have a great time with this game.
