FAQ/Walkthrough by Kouli

Version: 0.4 | Updated: 08/04/05

-- Shadow Hearts: From The New World --
-- FAQ/Walkthrough --
-- By Ken "Kouli/Ice" Zhao (kenzhao99@yahoo.com) --
-- Version 0.4 --

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

<Beforehand Words>

~What Is It
This FAQ/Walkthrough is based on the Japanese version of "Shadow Hearts: From
The New World" that is released on July 28th, 2005. The game itself is made by
Nautilus and published by Aruze.

If there is an US version and you are playing it, read this FAQ/Walkthrough at
your own risk. However, do not whine to me about this and that being different,
as comparing to the US version. This is still based on the Japanese version
solely, localized version will always/mostly share different names, and you
should have an understanding on such simple concept. Ultimately, it is your
choice that you pick the US version over the Japanese version, so it is not my
concern, thus don't whine to me about difference you see.

~What Will Be Covered
This FAQ/Walkthrough in general, will only cover the main game, thus just from
the beginning to the end. Optional and secret are often not included. However,
sometimes I will talk about it vaguely or in point form. If you are playing a
Japanese version game, I would take it that you at least know some Japanese
"kouryaku" sites or just use 2ch. Some sites are often as COMPLETE as it gets
and 2ch usually have real nice info. Thus, you should know where to look for
sites that have coverage on the particular game.

This is essentially a speedy main walkthrough guide, so the format/layout will
be simple, nothing fancy. Also, this is likely depend on my first playthrough,
it might lacks detail for parts, or those usual things that you won't see/
easily missed on your first time. A first time is never perfect, right? Unless
you have some sort of COMPLETE guide to hold your hands.

~Why Not Complete
The reason that I do not make this a COMPLETE FAQ/Walkthrough(that covers
everything, including lists, data, optional and secret things...etc) is because
I lack time. The market for Japanese RPG genre is very active and I have a
great taste/interest with the genre, hence, I will try to buy and play all
these RPGs ASAP. Since making a COMPLETE FAQ/Walkthrough will take a while, and
if I do that for each RPG I buy and play, that will slow me down a lot. So, it
would make sense that I only make a FAQ/Walkthrough that covers the main game
only. I write my FAQ/Walkthrough in real time, as in playing the game and write
at the same time. Unless there is an RPG rush, otherwise, this main game FAQ/
Walkthrough should be done shortly after the Japanese release. I tend to get
things done FAST and move on to another RPG, of course, write another one. The
cycle goes on and on. I am busy and can get very busy, so please try to have
an understanding on the fact that I don't usually write COMPLETE FAQ/
Walkthrough. I am more than willing to put in effort, but just not to one or
two FAQ/Walkthrough. Instead, I aim for as many PS2 RPGs as possible.

As said above, COMPLETE FAQ/Walkthrough takes quite some time, even for some
sites. Because we have to figure things out on our own, and you guessed it,
there is no Official COMPLETE Strategy Guide or the sort by the Japanese
release. Those often come out months later. This is how it works in Japan. We
don't have the time because we are the ones created the games. Often, the
strategy guide writers are against the time. However, for US version, due to
the fact that Americans have to go through the localization period, that
means US strategy guide writters have plenty of time to write a COMPLETE
guide. Thus, lots of dedicated FAQ writers that play US version games can
easily pull off a COMPLETE FAQ/Walkthrough with the help of the COMPLETE guide
that's released around the US release of the particular game. As compared to
JP gamers, we often figure things out or check sites, instead of having a
COMPLETE guide by our hand. This is the difference. So in the future, don't
be surprised that US Contributors can pull off a COMPLETE FAQ/Walkthrough
fast, because chances are, they are getting lots of help from the Official
COMPLETE Guide, where as for JP Contributors, pulling out a main walkthrough
FAQ/Walkthrough fast is more than enough.

~Hosting This FAQ/Walkthrough & E-Mails
In general, just IGN.com and GameFAQs/Gamespot. If you are from Cheatcc, then
don't bother. And I warn you Cheatcc people, mainly Dave, DO NOT host ANY of
my stuff on your site. I have been saying this for nth time, and if you still
don't listen, face the consequences! Anyway, if you are another general site,
probably not but do ask, I might, depending on the site. If you are a fan site
of this specific game/series, do ask and I will mostly give you the permission.
As to E-Mail me, do have a clear title. If it's about the game's story or game
play stuff, make your question clear as well. Do remember, if you are the type
that can't even read kana, please refrain from asking, with questions due to
the fact that you can't read kana. I WILL ignore you. Another thing I want is
that you play the Japanese version and ask questions around the JP release
date. If you ask me stuff on a game, like 3 months after the release, chances
are, I won't remember and probably not going to bother. I move on from games
to games fast, so keep yourself updated. Finally, NEVER EVER rush me. I am
writting this as I play the game(literally the same time), there is no FASTER
than that. If you are seeing no update or big gap between updates, chances are,
this game was among a RPG rush, and I am probably playing something else. And
just one more thing, if you see this at Cheatcc.com, please do inform me.

~Your Prerequisite
Playing a Japanese version game, especially RPG genre, means you at least know
all kana. Knowing how to read katakana and hiragana help a lot with gameplay
related things, especially with katakana which is foreign to begin with.
Hiragana, you can take your time to understand, same with grammar, particle
and of course, our beloved kanji. If you playing a Japanese version, I will
assume you at least know the basic of the basic, such as reading kana. I don't
mind if you use a game to learn more of the language even though that's not a
good way. My point is, you should be between getting the hang of the language
to around half fluent. If you are fluent, this paragraph is not for you. If you
are just a beginner, I don't mind to help you if you got questions. However,
you MUST know how to read kana. If you are the type that can't even read kana,
then why bother? No matter how eager you are, I seriously don't know why you
bother with a game, esepcially the RPG genre, without being able to read kana.
That is just absurd, period. Learn some kana, please!

For the Chinese, please don't act like you know all or OWN kanji just because
you know Chinese. They can be very similar but they are still different. Lots
of readings and meanings are quite different. I can easily pull off dozen
examples, and if you apply your Chinese there, I can tell you, you will be
wrong. So, please, for some of you, don't act so arrogant and think you OWN
kanji. You merely have a slight edge on kanji than others, you are FAR FAR FAR
from owning kanji. "I know Chinese so I know kanji" is the typical annoying &
ignorant thing to say.

Also, this is quite the common sense. Don't even hope that a Japanese version
game, especially the RPG genre, would have English related things. Yes, there
are some Japanese version games that have that, such as the Devil May Cry
series will always feature English voices in both JP and US version. However,
rest assured that this is never going to happen with the RPG genre, aka the
text heavy genre, 99% of the time. The 1% is for those one million to one
examples, such as Koudelka. But, whether that 1% has English related or not are
often known before the game comes out in Japan, so there is your homework.
Thus, in the future, refrain from asking such question, because chances are,
a 'NO' for 99% of the time. It's VERY UNLIKELY to happen with the RPG genre.
For other genre games, unless the previous games in the series often have
English related, otherwise, probably not. All of these things, they are nothing
but common sense. You can re-think a bit and ask yourself: Why would a Japanese
version game that is meant for the Japanese have English related things?

~My General Goal
GameFAQs has something called "Most Wanted FAQs" and "FAQ Bounty Contest", my
goal is to take off as many PS2(this generation at this point) RPGs off those
lists as possible. I am not looking for the money in "FAQ Bounty Contest"
however. Some people are probably going to say I am "Quantity Over Quality",
but, I rather cover on as many PS2 RPGs as possible than just spending lots of
time on just few FAQ/Walkthrough. Given, I am not the only Contributor, there
are others and their works. If you don't like my style that much, refrain from
reading my stuff. My stuff are usually for the JP versions anyway, and there
are next to no Contributor that write things for Japanese versions frequently,
so in the end, most of you will get the US version, play it and write your own
FAQ/Walkthrough based on the US version. That's good and remember, you guys are
the majority, ones for JP versions are really the minority, so I want to do my
part for them, as an Importer/Japanese gamer.

Enemies: Gagu*3
Comment: Same as before, just make good use of Combo.

After, do check out an item box in the cage you just opened up. Now make your

monsters.

Enemies: Gagu*3
Comment: Same as before, just make good use of Combo.

After, there is another Stellar within the item box in the cage you just opened
up. Now, make a save then enter the near door. After another scene, more fight.

Enemies: Gagu*3
Comment: Same as before, just make good use of Combo.

After, Frank Goldfinger will join the party. You will be outside the room, but
do enter back. There is an item box at lower right. Now, back to that locked
door. If you don't know where that is, check the map. The door is represented
by a red dash. After, enter that door.

Continue on and after you take the stairs, check the barrels for another
Stellar. Go up and save your game again. Go up the near stairs.

Within the room, check the item box under the table then take the door to the
left. You will end up fighting another boss.

Boss: Igor Narc
Comment: He's weak against Light, so Frank's Ninja Skill works. But, Frank's
         only Ninja Skill so far is for in air enemy, which leads you to use
         characters like Natan or Shania to do High Angle, then chain up the
         combo, and have Frank to use his Ninja Skill. Frank also has something
         called Holy Edge, apply it on other characters, so they can attack
         with the Light element. Also, try to avoid using Darkness related
         attacks. Don't get so caught up in attacking, besure to heal more
         often.

After, you will be back to the World Map with only one location that's
selectable.

<Upper West Side>

After, exit out and more scene. You will get a Ring Fragment. After, go left
and just after you turned, you should spot the Ring Spirit. In the end, you
would get "Attack Frequency Increase". You will be promt with yet another
tutorial but do view it. After, head out and there should be a new location.

<Grand Canyon>

After the event, head right and check out the upper grass. You should get an
item. Now continue on to the next area. At the next area, within the near left
tent, check the jars to the left for another item. Now exit out this tent and
check this tent's right side for an item box. Now go check the right tent. You
can speak with Navoch here. You will obtain the "Ngada Pottery" and also
"Honey", "Grapefruits", "Wild Rabbit", "Morpho Butterfly Scales", "Maiden's
Black Hair", "Gold Ore", then "Fly Paper". Anyway, exit out and check the back
of this tent, for another item. Now, as you can see, you can shop here and do
some Customizing of Metal Carving. To the left, or the right of this big tent,
there is a cactus, check it for another event and Frank gets another 'weapon'.
Now, go into the big tent at left. There is another item box then speak with
Zonta here. You will get 2 Stellar and the "Eagle Sculpture". Also, do view the
explaination on Soul Charge. After, exit out and you may go north.

~First Valley

Continue on and pay attention to some grass to the right. If not, just walk by
the right and keep pressing circle to check. But anyway, some grass got another
Ring Fragment. Moving on, there will be another scene. After, go left to get to
an item box. Notice the picture carved in the rock? Check that. Now go back to
those poles. They will ask you a question and the answer for me is 4. After you
answer it right, move on to the next area.

~Second Valley

Continue on and there is an item box to the left. You will come to another
scene. Continue on and more scene with the poles. This time, go right. You can
check out quite a few pictures. Near the pictures with One Sheep and One Human,
there is another item box that contains another Stellar. And by the pictures
with 2 Sheeps, there is another item box. After, back to the poles and answer
their question. Again, the answer is 4 for me. After, move on to the next area.

~Third Valley

Continue on and more scene. Do save your game. Now go left and continue to the
left at the intersection. Check the picture and go on to the left. By the cliff
edge, check around for an item. Now go down for another picture and another
item box. Now back to the intersection, and go up. Then head left for another
item box that contains another Stellar. From there, go right. An icon should
appear and this is where you hunt your first UMA. Do put down the "Honey". You
will end up fighting a strong enemy.

Enemy: Sasquatch
Comment: It's pretty heavy with its attacks. Defend and build up til you can do
         Double Combo. Heal rapidly if you need to. It's weak against Water, so
         if you got any Stellar Magic that's water based, use it.

After you beat it, you will get the "Swan Sculpture". Now head back and save
your game, then go answer the poles. My answer is "The one that swims the sea".
Once you are prepared, move on.

~The Earth Holy Ground

Take few steps up and more scene. This trial is only for Shania.

Boss: Tatanka
Comment: Not using fusion here. Just Hard Hit and heal with Medy Leaf if you
         need to. If you have Double, use those together if you are low on HPs.
         If you have enough HPs, change Medy Leaf to Defend. Repeat til you
         kill it

After, you will be back in Garland Detective Office. Exit out and go check out
where the Ring Spirit was, since you do have a Ring Fragment. Again, you get
"Attack Frequency Increase". Afterward, exit out this place. A new location
should now be available.

<Chicago>

After scenes, exit out this place and return to the Garland Detective Office.

<Garland Detective Office>

Within, there will be a scene with Rene Curtis. The answer is A=5 and B=9. In
the end, Johnny will get the Handy Tool "Suitoll".

Now, before moving on, let's get few items:

- Head back to Chelsea. Head to the place where Thunder Bird/Shania fought with
  Deep One. There is an item there with another Stellar
- Go back to the Arkham University. At the first area, go left and take the
  previously locked door to the room where you fought with Igor Narc. A desk
  there has a Lottery Ticket
- Go back to the Arkham University and head inside the University. Go into the
  left room on 2F. You can get another item at lower left corner
- Report back to Navoch in Grand Canyon to get Gun-Fu "Rapid Shot" for Natan

Now, time to move on.

<Chicago>

Go south a bit and save your game. Go south further from the Save Point and
speak with the first man. He's another Lottery Member. Besure to land on Red
because that's a Stellar Chart. Anyway, to the left of this Lottery Member,
there are that Gerard and Baigen, if you need them. Also, there is the place
called "Prospect Of Whitby". Before you enter there, check the light directly
south of it for another item. And go directly left from here for another item.
Now, enter "Prospect Of Whitby". Within, go right to the bar section and go
down a bit to check for an item. Now exit out this place and go north from the
Save Point. There will be an event with Masatoshi. There is an item box just a
bit north of him. Check it for another Ring Fragment. Speak with Masatoshi
again and you can trade in your Snap Cards. You can mostly meet the first and
second condition so far. First one gives you 2 Stellar and the second one gives
you another Stellar. Instead of going into "Four Deuces", let's head back to
the first area. From the Save Point, go west. In the next area, go upper left
for another item box. Now go down to south for a fight.

Enemies: Petty Mafia*2, Huth Mafia*2
Comment: Nothing hard, they just have more HPs. Use Combo/Double/D Combo when
         you can.

After, go down for another item box. Now head into this right door that's near.
You can get another item by the barrels. Now, it is time to go into "Four
Deuces". Take the right stairs up and speak with the guy. After few pretty long
scenes, check out the item box behind Mao's sofa. Then exit out. There is
another item here. It's located a bit south from the stage, by a table near the
center. Now, back to the area with the Save Point. You can find Natan standing
a bit NW from the Save Point. Then go west again. Go down a bit and take the
door to the right. Speak with Frank here. Now go back to Mao & say good night.
After few scenes, you will be at the World Map with a new location. Before you
advance, might as well go to speak with the Ring Spirit since you do have a
Ring Fragment.

<Alcatraz Prison>

Continue on and go up. Save your game. Check the door for a scene. Continue on
and open another door. At the next area, go down and at the corner, check for
an item. Moving on. Eventually, you will fight some guards.

Enemies: Prison Guard*5
Comment: Lots of them but they are very easy to defeat.

After, check out the first prison door to the left, for another item. Continue
on and another fight.

Enemies: Prison Guard*6
Comment: Similar to above, very easy to defeat them one by one.

After, go check out another item at lower left then take the near door. After
some scene, Mao will join the party. You can view about the Adjustment with
Battle Member and Team. After, do head back into the room and save your game.
And just SW of the Save Point, there is anothe item. Now, exit out and advance
from the left. Open the door and more enemies.

Enemies: Byakhee
Comment: Nothing hard, just slightly more HPs than the previous enemies

After, you will be at a big area. There is a cell with a man named Smith
within, just a bit north from where you are. Now, to get the items. Go left all
the way then north. Check the end cell for an item. Back to the central path
and there should be another scene. After, go toward Smith. Now, time to check
the second floor of this place. It's divided into 2 sections, left or right.
Take the right stairs up first then go left. Check the end for another item.
Now go to the left, take the left stairs up. Go right and check the end for
another item. There is one more item here, it's near/under the left stairs.
After, go south into another room. Go south a bit and there is another item in
this stand. After, go right and check the shiny object at north. This gets you
the "Jailbreak Spoon". Just to the right of that, there is another item. Now go
back to Smith. After, go check the center door.

Go up, then turn right. There is an item near, just under the stairs. Continue
to the right, ignore the stairs and check the right corner for another item.
Now go down to find Baigen and Gerard. Then take the stairs up. Go right to get
to a man named Murdoch. Afterward, go back down and go left all the way. Ignore
the stairs and go down. At the end, there is anothe item. Time, time to take
the center north door to another area

Check the right room, there should be another item within a shelve. Exit out
and if you go right then down, you can get to two item boxes. Now back track
and go north. There is another scene. After, check the item just a bit left of
where you are. Save your game and back to the right room in this area. Check
the buttons on the wall. One solution to this puzzle is as following:

D-D-D-U-U-U
U-D-D-D-D-U
D-D-D-U-D-U

U=Up(On)
D=Down(Off)

After, go save your game and enter the door for the boss fight.

Boss: Lomwe
Comment: Besure to heal a lot here, and keep Johnny's HPs high. If you need to,
         use few support Stellar Magic. He uses Fire Magic and can deal some
         good damage, especially with Double Attack. If you want to attack,
         have someone to use Aqua Edge first. Use Johnny's Suitoll from time
         to time, when his Stock is high.

After, you will be back to the World Map. You can only select one place.

<Chicago>

After, check the bookshelve at the left. Exit out this place for more scene.
There should be a new location on the World Map.

After, Mao will get "Cat Touch". Exit out. You can head to "Roswell" now. But,
let's get an item first.

  Ring Fragment at NW. Of course, head to Upper West Side to speak with that
  Ring Spirit

<Roswell>

After, check the sign to the right of the Save Point for another scene. Frank
will get a new 'weapon'. There is a taller sign at right, check the back of it
for an item. Check the upper left corner of the house for another item. The
person to the left most is another Lottery Member. Now go inside the house,
check the right for another item and you can shop at the northern object. Then
exit out and go right. Walk up for another scene and back to the first area.
Check with the oldman to the right of the Lottery Member. After, back to the

<Roswell Research Institute>

Check the north/northeast spot for another Stellar. After, take the door that's

Speak with the people within for "Card Key No.2". Check SE corner for another

another item. Now, to advance, check a chair or monitor to the left side on
this floor for more scene. The password is Ha, Ma, Chi. Again, if you can't
even read kana, I DO NOT know why you are bothering! Anyway, back track out and
go take the elevator. Save your game and move on to north. You will end up in
a battle.

Boss: Procyon
Comment: Don't use Physical here, so, that leaves to Special/Magic attacks. Use
         Sage, especially on Hilda. For Shania, you can have her transform into
         Tatanka. The boss's weak against Earth, so use Earth based magic. The
         other two can heal or support around.

After, you will back to the World Map.

<Upper West Side>

After, the game will explain about Hilda's forms: Glamour and Slim Hilda, as
well as a Pink Bat. This depends on her "Calorie Meter" which is depended on
using Calorie Drain on various enemies. There are also extreme cases, where she
will wear a Mask in either Glamour or Slim Hilda form. You will also get the
"Weekly Arts First Issue" that teaches Hilda "Grand Slam". This is how Hilda
learns Magical Arts.

Afterward, go out for another scene. Check with the Ring Spirit first, since
you do have a Ring Fragment. Now exit out and don't advance yet, there is
something to do:

- Go to Arkham University. Head back to the place where you fought with Igor
  Narc. Speak with the person here for a scene. After, you can fight tasks he
  got for you. There are 4 tasks you can take and some can be quite tough

your game and get near that door. Again, this is Shania's battle.

Boss: Rashiren
Comment: Transform into Thunder Bird, then Defend. Just be sure to heal more
         often and you should be fine. This is nothing hard.

After, you will back to the World Map with one new location. Before you move
on, there are few things to do:

- Go to Grand Canyon. Speak with Navoch for new UMA info
- Carib Pirate Fortress. There is a person at upper right where you can trade
  in your Snap Cards for items. It's different from the ones in Chicago
- Carib Pirate Fortress. You can now check the lower right ship. Check south

course, a battle.

Enemies: Petty Gang*3, Hutt Gang*2
Comment: Nothing hard, take them out one by one or use Stellar Magic that can
         decrease their physical attack power

After, you get the "Key Of Room 818". After more scenes, exit out the room and
back to the elevator. Then go left, fight more enemies, then take the lower
right room. Within, check the bed for more item. Now exit out and make your
way to the right. Another scene and more enemies. After, go right a bit and
go in Room 812. Here, there is another Lottery Memeber. After, exit out and go
on to the right. There is another room at the right end, ignore it for now.
Instead, go up and check the upper left room. Upon entering that room, more
enemies. After, get the "Key Of Room 807". This Room 807 is the right one at
SW part of this floor. Within that room, you can get another item. Now, once

the Save Point. Within, you can get another Stellar from the plant at NW. Now,
go right for another fight. After, once you are ready, take the right door for
the boss.

Boss: Malice Edna
Comment: Equip Acc that can prevent "Mental Break". It's weak against Fire,
         so use Fire based Stellar Magic. It has los of HPs, so this will take
         some time. Don't hesitate to cast support magic frequently, same with
         healing ones. If you can, use Gale to increase everyone's speed.

After, you will be back to the World Map. Chichen Itza will available again.
But, there are few things to do:

- Since you do have a Ring Fragment, do check with the Ring Spirit
- Head inside the Garland Detective Office. There will be another event. Go to
  Times Square. Speak with the man at upper left area. This is where your quick
  mental math comes in. Win it and you can now go to Halem
  - In Halem, go up and there will be another scene. Again, your mental math
    and win this will get you the "Panorama Lens" for Johnny
  - Do explore Halem since there are items you can get: From where you took
    that test, go up further, check behind the pole for a Lottery Ticket. Now
    back track down, walk to the right a bit and see the air coming up from the
    duct? Check it for a Stellar. Then, go on, and check behind the 'Stop' sign
    for another Stellar. Lastly, at the end of the path, there is an item box
- Back to Las Vegas. Go up stairs and head to the right for a scene. Spot the
  real one and you will get a new skill for Frank
- Go to speak with Navoch for new UMA info

<Chichen Itza>

Walk up a bit for another scene. After, go up to head inside. Save your game.
Check the lower right pole for another item. Go left, and another scene. Just
step on the first one then quickily run to the item box. You get the "Sinner's
Skull". There is also an item box to the right. Now, back track and take the
path to the right. Of course, Baigen and Gerard once again. Now, time to take
the center door.

Next area, continue to the right, then go up. By the upper right corner, there
should be an icon over Johnny's head. Ignore it. Continue on. Check the lower
right pole for another item. Activate the mechanism and get the item box. Back
track, take the path to north, then go down from the left. Activate it then
quickily back track and toward north. Check the item box for another item. Now

Go right to continue on. Behind the middle right pole, there is another item.
You get another UMA hunting icon at the upper left pole, again, ignore it.
Also, check the item box at lower left. Now, activate a mechanism to get the
door at upper right. Get the "Warrior's Skull". Then activate another mechanism
to get the door to north, that has another Stellar. Now move on from the upper
left door.

Continue on and just before you go to the next area, check the left corner for
another Lottery Ticket.

Go up to the right first. Activate an mechanism to get the item box at upper
right. Then do the same for the item box at lower left. Now see these 8 poles
(south part of the map)? They are positioned like this:

0-1-2-3-4
5-6-7-8-9

Use "Wild Rabbit" by 1 to fight Chupacabra. It's pretty strong, besure to put
up some Shielf on characters. Its weakness is Light so you know what to do.
After, go upper left, save your game. To the right of the Save Point, there is
another item box. Anyway, to open up the door at north, you need to activate
2 mechanism: first one is the one to the left of the Save Point, and the other
one is to the right. After, rush to that door at north. You get the "Royal
Family's Skull" from the item box. Save your game and advance from upper left.
Of course, it's boss time

Boss: Shub Niggurath
Comment: Equip Acc that go against "Seal". Similar with Chupacabra above, do
         put up Shield on characters, or just use Arc Shield. Its weakness is
         Darkness, so aim for that. In fact, this will be a long battle, so
         take your time and cast all sorts of support magic. Healing is also a
         big part, but if you got Arc Cure, that makes things easier. If anyone
         is low on SP, do recover SPs for them

After, you will be back to the World Map. Only one place is selectable.

<Rio De Janeiro>

Save your game. To the right of the Save Point, there is another Stellar. Check
the flowers to the left for another item. By the fountain, Arshes can quiz you
all sorts of questions. This can be quite tough if you don't know the answers.
Or you could just go through this numerous times and memorize each one, then
you can go through each answer within the time limit. Anyway, once you beat it,
you get the "Alarm". Check the light pole that's NW from the fountain. That
gets you another Lottery Ticket. And speaking of that, there is a Member just
a bit to the left. And see the red truck to upper left? Check the front for
a Ring Fragment. At upper right corner, there is another item box. If you speak
with the man within the red truck, you can trade your Snap Cards here as well.
Now go north to head inside the town.

Go up and check the near barrel to the left. As you can see, Baigen and Gerard
are here as well. Go left and check the barrel at upper left, just behind the
two person. Speak with Frank that's near. Anyway, to the right of Baigen, check
the can for another item. Head into the soccer filed at north, and check the
lower left corner for another item. Now back track at south. Another scene and
everyone will be back. Head toward the house at left. After, get back inside
the newspaper place. Check the bookshelf at left, the trash can at upper left,
locker to the upper right and lower right for items. Speak with the oldman here
and another scene. Now back to the soccer field, and check the object at north
for a new 'weapon' for Frank. After, exit out this town and before you advance,

You will be outside again. Head to the right for an item and check the herbs
near the Save Point for another Stellar. Don't go down the stairs yet, instead,
go the left. Hear, check around for a Ring Fragment. Continue to the left for
another item box. You can ignore this entrance. Now, back track and take the
stairs down. Lower right is another item box. Baigen and Gerard are here, and
check the left of them for another Lottery Ticket. Then, take the path at
south.

Within, to the left and press the green switch. Go down. Press the red switch
and back track up. Now go west.

Go down a bit then go east for another item box. Back track. Now go to lower
1right and press the purple switch. This should open up the door at north with
3 item boxes. Get the items now, go to lower left and hit the yellow switch.
Now, back track to the area at NE. Press red switch and green switch again.
Then yellow then purple. Basically, get "Purple-Yellow", then you can back
track out this place at NE. Once you are outside, take the entrace at upper

You should have "Yellow-Blue", and you can now get a move on from NW. Anyway,
go south and get the item then take the path at north.

check lower left for another item. Go north.

Next area, go along the path and by the intersection, go right for another item
and go left to move on. Save your game and go down for the boss fight.

Boss: Cherufe
Comment: Again, use Arc Shield or Shield one by one, Arc Barrier or Barrier as
         well. It's weak against Earth, so use that weakness. It can poison
         your party, but can be easily cured by using Arc Heal. If you have
         Arc Gale, the battle will go faster. Basically, similar to the fight
         with Shub Niggurath. Support and heal, eventually, you will take down
         all its HPs

After, you will be back to the World Map. Before you advance, take a quick
visit to the Ring Spirit.

<Moana Village>

From where you are, move to upper right for an item box. If you go right and
you should spot Baigen and Gerard. Anyway, head inside the near house. Check
the right shelf for another item. If you have Slim Hilda, speak to the girl
at right, Hilda will get a new skill. Check left part of this house for another
item. The girl at lower left here can take your Snap Cards. Now exit out and
head to the left area of this village. Before the statue, there is another item
box. Continue to the left. Don't enter the house yet, go around to the left for
another item box. Then go right from Loloma, check the torch for another item.
Enter the house for more scene. After, enter back. Check upper right for a
Lottery Ticket. Exit out and as for the Lottery Member, it's the person to the
left. If you have Glamour Hilda, speak to an oldman at the left part of the
village. Hilda will learn another skill. Once you are ready, exit out.

<Vilcabamba>

Check behind the lower right pole for an item. Now head to the center to go
down. Continue on and head inside. After some scene, move up. Open up the map,
and see the red dots? Go to each of them and examine the object there. As for
the two items, one is at upper right and the other one is at lower left. After,
take the center platform up.

Go left a bit and get the Lottery Ticket. Continue to the right, by the
intersection, go up and check behind for a Ring Fragment. The rest is just go
along the path, all the way to northwest.

Pretty big room here. Get the item at NW then take the red elevator. Move up a
bit and another scene. Go up and check that object. Back up a bit and make your
way to the right. By the intersection, go down to get to another item box. Go
up to advance. Just up a bit, go left and hit the object. Continue up after.
Ignore the green elevator for now, and continue to the left. There is another
item at the end. Now go back to take the green elevator.

Go NW first. There is another item box at the end. Now, time to go south. Go

elevator. Go south for another item then go up. From the glyph, go right and
there is another scene. Save your game and take that platform. Of course, it's
fight time.

Bosses: Killer, Daoloth
Comment: This is a bit trciky since there are two bosses here. Put up Shield or
         Arc Shield. Daoloth can cast all sorts of support magic, so let's go
         after it first. Heal at least once per turn. If you need to, put up
         Arc Barrier. If you got Arc Gale, use it. Sooner or later, Daoloth
         will use that anyway. Daoloth is weak against Fire, and Killer is weak
         against Water, so use those weaknesses. Once you took out Daoloth,
         Killer alone isn't all that powerful. If you can, use Johnny's Suitoll
         to such out his Stock from time to time. Killer using Double Attack
         can still be pretty deadly. However, they are Fire based, and there
         is the "Heat Resist" Stellar Magic to reduce damage from Fire

After, you will be back to the World Map. Only Moana Village is selectable.

<Moana Village>

Head into the most left house. After scenes, the "Ito Cave" is available. But,
as usual, there are things can be done:

- You can find Britney in Moana Village. Speak with her for a scene
- Moana Village. Within the Chief's House, speak with Loloma for a new Stellar
  Chart
- Since you do have a Ring Fragment, go check with the Ring Spirit
- Times Square. There is a Lottery Memeber, to the right of the black car
- Garland Detective Office. After the scene, head to Times Square. Just walk
  up a bit and speak with Leon here. Back track a bit and speak with this
  person just right of the entrance. Now go to speak with the person to the
  left of Baigen and Gerard. Now go to Chelsea. Speak with the lady with pink
  skirt. She's located at the middle of the road. Next, go to Halem. Speak with
  the person by the bus stop and then speak with a person in the alley. Now,
  time to go back to Garland Detective Office. Speak around with Rene and there
  should be a short scene. Back to Times Square and speak with Leon. Go back to
  Garland Detective Office. Select the second choice, then the 1st, 2nd and
  finally, the 3rd. Now, go back to Halem. Head in the Alley and speak with
  Taffy. Then go back to Garland Detective Office for your reward: "Call Phone"
  skill for Johnny

<Ito Cave>

Enter the cave. Save your game. Move up for another scene. You will fight two
Kaplakan. After, check out the picture on the wall. As you can see, there is
an item box behind the right pole. Move on to the next area. Continue on to
north. Go along the path, to the right cave.

Pick up the Ring Fragment. Take the upper right path now. Continue on and get
another item from the left torch. Move up a bit and spot another item box. Now
back track and take the lower right path. In the next area, continue on and by
the intersection, go up. There should be another scene. Continue on, at the
next intersection, go up. Next intersection, go right for another item. Now
back track to the previous intersection, go left all the way this time. Just
SW from the Save Point, there is another item. Save your game and move on from
north. By the next intersection, go left then left again. You will have to
fight your way through. There are 3 groups of Kaplakan enemies to fight. After,
get the item at the end. Now back track and go right. Continue to the right,
and by the intersection, go south. Go SW to spot that Jimmy. Go left to take
the red warp point, to a location with another item. Sadly, you are going to
walk back to where you were. So anyway, back to the interesection and move on
to the right. At the right corner, you can get another item. Then after, move
on to the next area from north.

Take the red warp point and continue on to the north. Save your game and to
the left of the Save Point, there is another item box at the end. Of course,
move on at north once you are ready for a boss fight.

Boss: Delget
Comment: He is just brutal with damage. Even you put up all sorts of Barrier or
         Shield, he can still inflict so much damage. He has lots of HPs and
         the weakness is Wind. Most deadly of all, is his Petrify move that
         attacks the whole party. That means a chance of instant Game Over if
         you don't have Acc that guards that. Don't be surprised that you are
         constantly healing and reviving, because it is going to happen. When
         he uses Energy Charge, Defend. Keep up with the healing/reviving, have
         some one to cast support magic and others can do Wind magic. Keep this
         up til he dies

After, you will be back to the World Map. Head to Grand Canyon. Check with
Navoch for new UMA info. Now, go toward the big tent to the left. After the
scene, exit out this place and there should be a new location. Again, don't go
on yet, there are things to do:

- Since you have Ring Fragment, go speak with the Ring Spirit
- Arkham University. Head inside the University, and get into the right room on
  1F. The person at lower right is another Lottery Member
- Arkham University. There are 4 new lessons from Professor Lovecraft
- Moana Village. To the left of the statue, check the object for another new
  'weapon' for Frank
- Ito Cave. Back to where you fought Delget. Check the area right of the right
  pillar
- Ito Cave. Assuming you only spot one Ninja(Jimmy) before, there should be 2
  more. Bruce is within the wall just a bit to the left of the final save point
  (one before the boss). As for the last guy, check the SE room. Examine the
  right red statue. After you got all 3, you will get a new skill for Frank
- Ito Cave. There is a new UMA here. There are four locations to put things:
  1/ Center of the map, the right blue statue. Use Morpho Butterfly Scales
  2/ Most NW area of the map, behind the upper left statue. Use Maiden's Black
     Hair
  3/ NW of 1 and SE of 2 above, so between 1 and 2. It's the area with the red
     warp point. Check the right red statue. Use Grapefruits
  4/ This must the last one. The room where you fought Delget. Check the center
     north pillar. Use Gold Ore and you will fight "Rogothumuhere".
- Report back to Navoch after you got the above UMA. One of Natan's skills will
  get another power up

<Uyuni Salt Lake>

After, head up for more scene. Go back out, and go to the right a bit and you
can spot another item near by. Now go back inside. Check lower right for
another item box. There are Baigen and Gerard here. To the left of them, there
is another item box. Once you are ready, take the left door. Walk the long
passage.

Second floor, go right for a scene. Move on and hit the second crystal. Move on
to the left, get the item box and hit the crystal near by. Continue on and hit
another crystal. Continue to the left and hit the crystal below the door. Just
as you arrive at the passage, check your left for another item.

Third floor, hit the crystals at both right and left. Cross to north. Go right
for another item box. Then go left and hit that crystal to go down. Once you
are below, just go south a bit and search for another item. Go north for a
white crystal and then go right from there for an item box. Now back track,
hit the red crystal to the left of the red stones. Doing so, not only you get
the path to the door, but there is a new red crystal to the right. Check it to
ride it up. Advance from the door at north. Again, another long passage. But
before the door to 4F, check the near corner for another item.

Next floor, save your game. Go left to another crystal. Then go right. Check
the crystal by the corner to go down. Go left a bit for a yellowish crystal.
After, go right for an item. Now go left again and this time, check the middle
crystal and you can go north now. Continue to NW, then check the right corner
for another item. Then go up from the near south crystal. Now, go to the east
all the way, you can get a Ring Fragment. Then back track and hit the crystal
at left. You can now make it to white crystal at NW, of course, you can also
advance after that. However, there is one more thing to be done here. It's a
new weapon for Frank, if you are not interested, you may skip this and move
on. Anyway, take the crystal at right to go down again. You are going to mess
with the 3 crystals to the left. First, the right one, then the middle one.
Then you can go to north/center, take the green crystal at left to go up. Now,
you can reach the crystal at NE. Use that to go down, check the near object for
the weapon. After, check the near red crystal, then take the green crystal at
left to go up. Then check the near red crystal to the left. You can then get to
the north door from the right.

Next floor, nothing special. Just move along the path and get the item box.
And before you take that door, check the corner spot to the right of the door.
You get another Stellar. After, take the door and another long passage.

Now, the next floor. Go up and a scene. As you can see, there are 5 switches
on the floor, positioned like this:

---1---2---
-3-------4-
-----5-----

Check 2 then 1. That opens the door. But not yet, check the north crystal to
reset it. Then go 5, 4 then 3. This will open the right door. Now, a bit left
of 5, there is another Stellar you can find. Then take the left door first. You
will get to another item box. Now back track and go take the right door. Save
your game and take the near door for the boss fight.

Boss: Killer
Comment: He's still strong with physical attacks and fire based magic. The good
         thing is, it's only him this time. Put up Shield and Barrier, as well
         as Gale. Two characters can heal and support, the other two can just
         attack. This time, Killer has tons of HPs but still weak against water
         based magic. If you can't put up some healings each time, you are not
         going to last long. This is nothing tricky. It's just this will take
         a while. Double Attack from Killer is a still a problem, if you can,
         use Johnny's Suitoll or Hilda's Grand Slam.

After, Johnny will be in a 'dream'. Exit out from the right. Save your game.
Just a bit below the Save Point, near the right door, there is another Lottery
Ticket you can find. Enter the north door. Check around the window for another
item and then check the center table for another item. Exit out. Afterward,
exit out the place. Since you do have Ring Fragment, speak with the Ring Spirit
then exit out to the World Map. There should be a new location. Don't advance
yet, there are things can be done:

- Halem. There is a Lottery Member to the right
- Halem. Speak with a man at the right part of the map with Slim Hilda. Hilda
  will get a new skill
- Chicago. Head to the north area(with Four Deuces), and speak to a man to the
  left with Glamour Hilda. Hilda will get a new skill
- Arkham University. Head inside the University and go into the right room on
  2F. You can take another quiz. Win it to get a new Stellar Chart
- Moana Village. Head to the left and speak with 2 villagers for scenes. After,
  go to Arkham University, go left and speak with the person before the room
  to Professor Lovecraft. Now, to Alcatraz Prison. Back to the big prison area
  and get to the northern area. Take the left stairs up to 2F and speak with
  an oldman at the left side. Now back to the villagers in Moana Village then
  finally, back to the oldman in Alcatraz Prison. Ricardo will get another
  Roots Item
- Uyuni Salt Lake. Back to where you fought Killer. Check the left for another
  item

<Garland Mansion>

Save your game and enter. Within, check the left for an item. Go up a bit for
a battle. After, continue up for a scene by that red seal. Ignore the red seal
and take the right stairs. At the end of that, there is another Stellar. Now go
to save your game, then enter through Seal One. After, take the near door to
the next area.

In the Statue Room, take the right door. At the hallway, take the near right
door again. Go through Seal Five. Now, go south to another item box then go
through Seal Four. After, check the left for another item. Now back to the
wallway by taking the near door. Continue to the left and go through Seal Two.
Go down a bit and take the near left door. Check the north corner for an item.
Then go down and through Seal Eight. Check the near right for another item.
Take the right door to get back to the hallway. Then take the near right door
and go through Seal Six. Now, take the north door again, then take the near/
north door. Go through Seal Three. Take the near door to the left. Check north
for an item and lower left for another. Back track and continue down to north.
After going through Seal Nine, all the seals will now be broken off. Take the
north door.

Within the room, go right to save your game. To the right of the Save Point,
check for a Ring Fragment. Now, check the seal here at north for more scene.
Now back track to the Statue Room. There is a new path down. Go down and save
your game again. Press the switch to turn on the light. To the left of the Save
Point, check for another item. Once you are ready, enter the door for the boss
fight.

Boss: Tamaris
Comment: This guy's attacks are just absurd, both physical and magical. As
         usual, cast Barrier, Shield and Gale. But, I really don't think those
         help much. You characters just get killed and you will revive. You are
         going to repeat this for a long time because Tamris has tons of HPs.
         As for the weakness, it's Darkness. Tamaris will cast lots of support
         and you might as well do the same. If Tamaris uses Panic, use an Arc
         Heal to counter it. Also, to prevent him using Double Attack, besure
         to use Johnny's Suitoll or Hilda's Grand Slam from time to time

After scenes, exit out the office. Check with the Ring Spirit since you do have
Ring Fragment. Before you move on, go back to Garland Mansion. Back to the area
where you fought Tamaris. Go left and check around the left of the left tube.
Now, to move on, get to Roswell. Head side the house and speak with Roger at
north. And again, back to where you fought Tamaris. Speak with Roger there.
After scenes, go back to the Garland Detective Office. Speak with everyone
then speak with Natan again. Exit out to the World Map and you can now go to
Brooklyn. After some scene, head to the right and around NE(before you exit
out), check the floor for another item. Then back to Garland Detective Office.
After the short scene with Rene, go to Roswell. Head toward the airship to the
right. Speak with Roger and you can take it toward The Gate. BTW, Johnny now
has the "Liberate" command, which allows him to release out his Malice and take
in a form knowned as "Awaker".

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After you have entered The Gate, you can return back and can do TONS of things:

Guiana Highlands, Ninja Village, Doll House, Galvoy's Valley, Purgatory, all
these locations are up to you to explore.

Also, there are other little things to be done, but you are going to work them
out yourself. I am running out of time and 2 new RPGs(Grandia 3 and Summon
Night Ex Thesis: Yoake No Tsubasa) await me.

If you are too lazy to bother on your own and want some good Japanese sites
that cover these things, try:

http://www4.atwiki.jp/shn_wiki/
http://www.geocities.jp/breanoheya/

If you can't read those sites because you don't know Japanese, again, I DO NOT
know why you are bothering with a Japanese version RPG, seriously.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

<The Gate>

Check behind Roger for an item. Once you are ready, save your game and go north
for more scene. You will end up in a battle.

Boss: Malice Killer
Comment: Equip Acc that prevent Death and Seal. As usual, Barrier, Shield and
         Gale. He has 4200 HPs now and still weak against Water. Cast all sorts
         of support, heal each turn and suck his Stock with Johnny's Suitoll or
         Glamour Hilda's Grand Slam. This is not hard, just another long battle
         and a bit longer than previous battles. Double Attack from him is yet
         again, dangerous. Thus, Grand Slam and Suitoll can be very helpful.
         And to deal more damage with water based magic, cast Arc Sage

After, back to where you fought Malice Killer. Check the shiny object on the
floor for another Stellar. Then get a move on to north.

Next area, save your game. Move on and by the intersection, go left. Then go
south and north for item boxes. Back track and move on to north for more scene.
Back track a bit and go right. Check the item box a bit toward south. Then go
south down for another. Back track a bit and continue your way down from north.
You will get to another boss.

Boss: Malice Soaker
Comment: Put up Barrier and Gale. Do not attack it with magic, just go with
         physical attacks. Putting up Rage helps to deal more physical damage,
         so cast that as well. Also, equip Acc that blocks "Mental Break". For
         Hilda, she can use Energy Charge and that can deal lots of damage.
         This battle shouldn't take as nearly long as the previous one

After, back track and make your way to north. However, before you go through
that, check the right stones for another item.

Continue to north. Go left for an item and go right to move on. Eventually,
you get another scene and yet another boss.

Boss: Malice Gilbert
Comment: Put up Gale, Barrier and Shield. Malice Gilbert has more HPs than that
         Malice Killer, and his weakness is Light. Equip Acc that prevents
         "Panic". The battle is similar to previous one, so, same old healing,
         reviving, support magic and attack with light based magic. It will
         take a while

After, check the near shiny object on the floor for another Stellar. Then check
the near stones to the left for another item. Move on to north. By the next
intersection, go left first. Get the item box on the way and continue to the
right. You will be back up and check the near right for another item box. Now
make your way to the left. Pick up the item box on the way and continue to the
north.

Save your game here. Head to the right, then go south for an item and go north
for a fight with another Malice Soaker. After, back track to the Save Point.
Go left this time. Continue to the left and go up a bit to pick up another item
box. Continue down from the left and go right for another item box. Continue
your way down to south from here, you will eventually get to another Malice
Soaker. After, back track and go right. Pick up another item by the
intersection, go down from the right for another Malice Soaker. After, back to
the Save Point and you can now go north. At the final area, move north from the
Save Point to get another item and then go save your game. Once you are ready,
go north to confront the last battle.

Last Bosses: Lady(Grace Garland), Malice Umbral
Comment: This is it, the last battle of the game and also the hardest of all.
         Equip Acc that prevents all bad Ring status. Don't bother putting up
         Shield, Barrier, Gale, as well as other support magic. As for healing,
         Arc Cure isn't going to do much, unless you have everyone to do it.
         Instead, we will depend on Glamour Hilda's "Full Plume" skill, or
         magic such as Cure Plus. And remember, you can always use items to
         heal. As for the bosses here, as you can see, Malice Umbral and Lady.
         However, you only need to attack Malice Umbral to end the fight. Lady
         herself doesn't have much HPs, but you can't seem to be able to damage
         her. Malice Umbral on the other hand, got loads of HPs. Both of them
         are Non-Elemental, so no weakness and you can just use anything to
         attack Malice Umbral. Here are their attacks:
         - Lost Progress: This negates all status up you have so don't cast
                          support magic. This will be activated as soon as you
                          use any of those status up magics
         - Ring Abnormality: This puts various bad status to your Judgement
                             Ring, but if you got the Acc that blocks this,
                             Lady will basically waste this turn since it will
                             MISS
         - Crimson Raid: Single target, around 350 damage. Use Cure Plus to
                         heal
         - Bex Gust: Central area attack, around 250 damage. Have two person
                      use Arc Cure or use Glamour Hilda's "Full Plume"
         - Entrance: Increase Special Attack damage by 125%, for next turn
         - Calamity Gaze: Attacks all characters, around 300 damage. This can
                          be instant Game Over if Entrance was used before this
         - Zeal Steal: Absorbs Stock from a character
         - Cure: Heals around 800 HPs to Malice Umbral
         - Malice Dash: Seems to be just used in Double Attack, this causes
                        lots of damage as well. BTW, you should have seem this
                        move from Malice Killer from before

Again, this is another long fight and if you are low on SPs, cure with items or
use Tatanka's "Howling". This hard isn't all THAT hard as long as you are
prepared. If you barely beat Malice Killer and Malice Gilbert, you might want
to level up a bit. You can always exit out The Gate and do some optional quests
to get various items, to prepare yourself.

After you beat Malice Umbral, Lady will use "Malice Dash" as a Final Attack.
Then Johnny will make the final blow to end this battle. After, sit back and
enjoy the ending. There are two endings. One ending is depended on Shania's
Fusion Soul "Tiwara". Have that Fetishes' Levels be at Level 5.

In the end, do make the Clear Data save. You will also unlock "Theater" at the
Title Menu. If you load the Clear Data save, you can start the game again from
the beginning. You get to keep various things from the previous playthrough:

- Snap Cards
- Stellars
- Stellar Charts (However, they are back to the default)
- Fusion Souls
- Soul Energies
- Fetishes
- Library
- Johnny's "Liberate" command and "Ez Purge" skill
- Options
- One new "Help" will be added
