◆Deactivating the Divine Boundaries

It is up to you and Haru to deactivate all of the Divine Boundaries and stop Masatake Arakida’s plans from coming to fruition.

Use the Celestial Weapons to absorb Ki from Channeling Stones, then use it to operate the puzzle-like Divine Boundaries and deactivate the various barriers around the island to continue forward on your quest. There are some objects that only Haru can interact with, and some that only you can manipulate. In order to achieve your goals, it is critical that you work with Haru. Make sure to pay attention to the locations of the Channeling Stones and observe your surroundings.

◆Health Recovery

The Player shares a special bond with Haru. If one of them is damaged, the other is also affected. When the situation is dire, the Player can hold hands with Haru to draw power from the Unseen World and recover their health. Pay attention when Haru calls for your help!
** There is a health gauge on the left Celestial Weapon.

◆Quelling Kami

Each of the five Kami have a Nucleus somewhere on their body. By destroying the Nucleus, it becomes possible to quell the Kami. The way you will draw out the Nucleus for each Kami differs, so you will need to work with Haru to figure out how to defeat each of them.

◆Challenges

Collect all of the “Nexus Points,” clear the maps in record time, get a high evaluation score, score the most points in a level, unlock special costumes, or just simply unlock every achievement; there are an endless number of ways to challenge yourself!

Ⓐ Evaluation Score: The faster your clear time, the higher your score.

Ⓑ Nexus Points: Small bits of Ki that have gathered in places around the island due to the effects of the Total Nexus. If you can find and quell each of them, they may have an effect on the Large Nexus Point!

Ⓒ Clear Time: The amount of time it took to finish a given map.

Ⓓ Score: The evaluation score and nexus points influence this.

◇Additional Costumes

Dark Priestess

Shield Mode (Easy difficulty)

Shield Mode significantly reduces damage from “Kenzoku” and “Kami” and makes the game easier to play.

Changing to Shield Mode can be done at any time from the in-game options settings, but the mode can also be changed on the game start screen, save data selection screen, and map selection screen.

Please note, however, that selecting Shield Mode will halve your score for that map.

Result Screen:
If the game is cleared in Shield Mode, a shield symbol is displayed next to the score.

◆Graphics Quality Settings (Only SteamVR, Oculus Rift)

Graphics Quality Settings for high-resolution rendering, soft-shadow effect enhancements, as well as extra post-processing effects, all of which are aimed at providing gamers with higher-quality experiences according to their PC specifications.

Conversely, reducing graphics quality can improve performance and prevent heating.
