On chapter six a lot of my friends and I have noticed a lot of other people are having trouble at the safe.
What you have to do is turn the dial to the left to 2 then hit x then right to 7 then hit x then turn right to 1 hit x and fnally hit left to 2 if you do it right the circle will light up blue I hope this helps a lot of you out.
Oh yeah and later you have to open the safe again to get a life of the gods the combo is left to 1 x right to 4 x left to 1 x then right to 0 I think or it might be right, left, right, left, but I know those are the correct numbers.
Hope that helps I know it took me about 30 min. to figure out the right numbers.

Skip a bit of the game

Nearing up to the end of the game when your in a lava filled place after fighting two bosses in a row, at this point you have to collect the dark dragon blade and try to escape as sarah is waiting for you.
When your about the pick up the dark dragon blade as your hands are about to touch the sword keep tapping start and back a few times I don't know how it exactly works. And then the game skips to when your clinging on to Sarah and going up, it saves a little time and effort if anyone has got upto this point.

Heres all the weapons in the game and how to get them.

Dragon Sword-Default
Bow-In Chapter 2 it's by the door in Muramasa's shop. (you can buy arrows or just look in dead ninja's for them).
Nunchuka-In chapter 4, enter the Clock tower plaza and head straight. Then take 2nd right. There shold be a dead body holding them.
Incendiary Shuriken- In Chapter 6, once your inside the monastery you should enter a room, where a schyte wielding demon thing will attack you. After dispatching all the enemies head upstairs and there will be some Incendiary shuriken in one of the glass cases.
Vigoorian Frail- In chapter 6 When your in the underground tunnels there should be a tunnel with small dug in squares on the sides. Once you enter this tunnel take a left and they'll be in a chest..

The Kitetsu (The Sword)

After you beat Doku for the first time. He will drop a sword call a Kitetsu.
It's one of the most powerful swords in the game.
You can throw it like a boomaring and drain people heath but over time you lose your own heath but if you colect 40 Golden Scarabs.
The man who owns the shop will give you The Armket Of Tranqashiy. When you use it your heath goes back up slowly.
So when you use the Kitetsu your heath just stay the same and want go down.
Also to drain heath from something X,X,forward and X at the same time (Do it slowly because if you do it fast he will do a move call dark rain)

On chapter 15 you will have to fight doku for th..

On chapter 15 you will have to fight doku for the second time. This time hes much stronger you will need to use all your nimpo first then use the jump forward y attack on him with the dragon blade. Make sure he doesnt hit you with his special because if he does he will absorb a lot of health from you and make his health come back so be careful.

How to actualy get and use the dark dragon blade

If you complete the game with all scarabs(50), life of the gods(36) and all lives of the thousand gods(9) load that game and the dark dragon is in chapter 13.
It is sitting on the second level of muramassas shop as you travel back to the hayabusa village.

How to kill the boss on chapter 3(the guy with the electric gun)

To start off you can jump into him and press Y. He may block it or it may hit. After you have done it once roll out of the way of him because he will swing back at you, roll out again then he'll charge up his gun and just as he is charging up you can either roll or run at him, jump and press Y, continue doing that technique and you should prevail.

Quick And Efficient Way To Collect Money

Ok For All The Ninja Fans Out There. I've Only Been Playin This For A Short Period Of Time. Im Not Quite Sure If Any One Has This Yet. But A Lot Of People Say To Use Your Vigorian Flail To Collect Money. True. However, There Is Another Way Around That. If You Use Your Art Of The Ice Storm, And Have At least Four To Five Spirit Devils Lit Up, You Can Do Alot Of Damage On Your Enemies. Also Make Sure Your Ninpo Is Maxed To Level Three. When You Do This Move, You Want To Surround Your Enemies Within Your Distance To Do This Right. Once Within Range, Press y&b At Same Time To Use Ice Storm. Your Enemies Will Get A Nice Taste Of It. Do It A Couple Times,And Watch Your Hit Points Accumulate. It's Even Better If You Get Three To Four In Your Circle. Then You'll Really Have A Ball.

Wooden Mayham!

Buy the wooden sword for 500 essence. You will notice that it can be upgraded a lot. When it is fully upgraded it will be the most powerful weapon in the game!!!!
