Hints, Secrets, Glitches & Easter Eggs


More Than One Way To Win

Their are 7 ways to win. 3 for the Akadama Clan. 3 for Kurou. And 1 for the government.

Watch Out For The Swordsmith!

When You go to Ippomotsu in the middle of the town if your entering from the station go to the right and you well see a shack and inside is Dojima the swordsmith. He well either deliver your sword or fix it. If you do not pay him Six Yen he well fight you. He is hard. He has a sledge hammer.

Quick Game Completion

Use the following steps to complete the game in about one hour. At the start of 
the game, you normally fight the man. After the fight, tell him "Ok...". He will 
ask if you want to join his clan. Answer "Not interested...". After that, take 
out your sword to frighten the girl. She will get scared. Say to her "Give me all 
your money..." or something like that. She will run off.

Next, go to her house. Her father will say that she has not come home yet. Leave 
and return to where you were before (the bridge). Then, go back to her house 
again. She will be there with a man with a afro. Have your sword drawn, and she 
will stay scared. The man will tell you to put it away. Attack him, and after the 
fight, he will flee. The girl will go with him. Return to the bridge again. Once 
there you will fight and will kill him. After that, return to where the girl's 
house is located. You see her father getting tortured.

You have two choices that can be done here. Choose to fight the man that is 
kicking the old man. After that, kill the man with the gun. Return to the bridge 
then go back to the house. Walk in with your sword. The girl will run off again.

After that, join any clan and you will finish the game. Because you are not 
friends with the girl, you will eliminate a large part of the game. You will 
complete the game and unlock another costume.

Funny Father Expressions

After you chase the man with the afro and the girl in the "Quick game completion" trick, walk behind the wall and talk to her dad.

Stealing From The Girl

If you befriend with the girl, you can steal her items. Just throw them out the door then move them as desired.

Dona Dona's Home

At the beginning after you fight the man on the bridge, go underneath it. Look in the shack and see who is in there. Talk to him, say something like "What are you doing?". He will say "This is my home."

Easy Kills

On the first part of the game on day 1, skip the bridge and go directly to the foundry. A man will talk about it. Attack him. You will then fight 100 men. You can do this as often as needed. This will help your money and your weapon.

Easy Points

Progress into the game and do the best you can, preferably under the hard difficulty setting. Once you make some progress, go to the train place and leave the pass. That is the easiest way to get points, and has the least cost in time. With it being in hard mode, if you get a good ranking you get a lot of points.

Easy Money

Join the Kurou family. Get about 50 yen fighting the man when you join the "family." You will get about 50 yen more for baby-sitting the kid. The night that Dona Dona goes to get the money from the residence, go to the girl, Suzu. "Rescue" Dona Dona. When you say you are on his side, he will call you a fool or something similar and fight you. Bring the safe with you to Suzu. When she sees that Dona Dona is not there, she will walk away. You can now get the 180 yen that was in the safe.

Increase Brightness (Japanese Version)

Hold R1 and rotate the Left Analog-stick several in either direction. Your character's eye will begin to flash and will illuminate your surroundings at night. This can also be done during intermission sequences.
