Ode Castle (Building 1)

1 Upon gaining control of Oboromaru, go up the stairs.
2 Use Shadowed Self (Y) to get past the two guards by the entrance of the fortress grounds. You can do this by briefly letting your self get spotted without coming into contact with the guards and then quickly using Shadowed Self to get them to look around. When they are looking away, run past them.
3 Use the same method to go past the next pair of guards guarding the door to the castle.
4 Watch the cutscene and remember the two alternating passwords which are River and Origin. These will change regularly when you hear a bell while exploring the area.
5 Head right and go in the room at the end of the hall. Take out the Manservant by using Fireflies’ Wake.
6 After the fight, check the chest to get Chain Mail and equip it.
7 Leave the room and head back to the left of the hall. Ignore the middle door for now (there is a strong Retainer enemy here) and take the one to its left.
8 Go north and there will be a Ronin in the next area. You use Shadowed Self to avoid combat for now (or flee if you triggered the battle).
9 From here, you can choose to go north or south. The latter leads to a Manservant and Maid that you can battle if you want to earn XP. The north goes out of the castle.

11 Back at the hall, go right (ignore the north door) and enter the door to the south. Open the two chests to get Slice of Castella Cake x2.
12 Now backtrack all the way to the room where you met the Ninja who told you to investigate the attic. Do so and go up the ladder.
13 Watch cutscene with Papa Rat and Little Rat. Then,  explore the attic open the three chests around the area to get Koban x1, Suijin Tab x1, and Slice of Castella Cake x1. You can peep through the holes around the attic as well for some more cutscenes.
14 Exit the attic by going north northwest and prepare to battle Soaring Ibis. Just use Fireflies’ Wake and stand around it while the enemy takes constant damage from the area of effect.

Ode Castle (Open Area 2)

1 Move south along the rooftops to reach a ladder going into the tower.
2 Go up the ladder and into the attic.

5 Exit to the right and move along the rooftops again to reach another attic.
6 Head to the exit to the right by avoiding the trap door in the middle.
7 On the rooftops again, follow the path going right and north. As you pass some makeshift stairs made of wood and start going around north again, you will notice a short wooden platform jutting out to the left. Ignore it for now.
8 Keep following the rooftops as it comes around going left.
9 Enter another attic at the end and pick up Storehouse Key and Slice of Castella Cake x1 from the chests.
10 From here, backtrack all the way to the attic with the trap door (where the rat fell in) and drop from there. Afterwards, you will find yourself near the starting place of the area. Proceed through the level until you reach the entrance of the second castle building (the area where you found the Echizen merchant hiding on the left side). You can choose to take out enemies you ran from the first time you passed through the area. When you are at the second castle building’s entrance, open the storehouse to the lower left using the Storehouse Key. Inside is an enemy ninja you can take out and a chest containing the Basement Key.
10 From here, head inside the second castle building again back to the first attic (the one where you encountered Papa Rat and Little Rat). Then, go down the ladder and head to the room full of Maids again to the left. Go all the way north to the short hall again and exit the building through the large north door.
11 Follow the straight path going right until you reach a building at the end. Use the Storehouse Key again to go inside.

26 Exit the room and go up the stairs on the right.
27 In the next area, go inside the revolving door to the north and head left across the hall. The room to the south just has someone sleeping inside so go through a revolving door just opposite of it.

29 In the next area, go up the ladder to reach the attic.
30 Go south and take out the Trap Master and his minions (killing the Trap Master will also kill his mobs).

33 From the the southwest corner, go right and climb down the ladder.
34 Go inside the room in the middle. This is Clockwork Gennai’s tea room. To battle Gennai, talk to him by the door to the north until he comes out (it is recommended to save first before engaging him). Also, tell him that you do not trust him.
35 During battle, it is recommended to defeat Gennai’s Electrode minions first before taking him out. Stand a good distance away from the enemies and use Shuriken Storm to pick them off.
36 Once the Electrodes are defeated, focus on Gennai. Simply attack Gennai up close until he goes down.
37 If you followed the directions above, Gennai should drop the Zenmai upon defeat, a key item you need to recruit an optional character in the episode.
38 Before you recruit the optional character, exit the tea room and head back up the ladder.

79 Head northwest and climb down the ladder there. Climb up the stairs and go up the next ladder ahead.
80 In the next attic, go south to get another Genji Armor x1. Then, head to the southeast corner ladder and climb down to reach Gennai’s tea room again.
81 Head inside the room where Gennai was hiding. Then, approach the slot in the northeast corner and insert Koban 3 times. You should hear a noise in the tea room. Head there and approach the body in the middle. Then, insert the Zenmai.
82 The body will take on Oboromaru’s form and attack you. Defeat it (it will not put up much of a challenge at this point). Take him out with a strong attack like Wind Slash.
83 After O-Robo joins you, avoid stepping on the spot where O-Robo was standing when he attacked you (it is a trap door which will cause him to fall and get destroyed).
84 Back at the room where Gennai was hiding, approach the slot on the wall again (do not step on the blue pillow). Insert 1 Koban to turn the tea room back to its original state.

Side Quests

85 From here, feel free to do some exploring if you want to grab more items in the level (exit through the tea room’s entrance and back up the ladder to the attic). You may want to backtrack to the Path of Shuttered Lanterns to battle Majin Ryunosuke (an optional boss) to get Muramasa (weapon) from him now that you have O-Robo to help you.
86 You can also go into the water again and approach the large shadow to fight Lord Iwama to get the Suijin Scale (accessory). Note that O-Robo will not be able to join you for that fight as he will not survive moving underwater for too long.

Path to the Final Boss

87 When you are ready, head back to the room where Gennai was hiding and go through the door to the north.
88 In the next area go up the stairs. Then, go south. A rat here will cause O-Robo to malfunction if he is still with you and he will permanently leave the party.
89 Go inside the large room in front of O-Robo.
90 Watch the cutscene. Then, equip Ryoma with any good gear you have acquired thus far. Afterwards, approach the spirit to battle Miyamoto Musashi.
91 Have Ryoma engage Musashi up close using Polaris Single-Blade to chip away at his HP. Oboromaru, meanwhile, should avoid standing next to the boss. Instead, try to position him diagonal below or above and use Wind Slash or Ninja Strength. Heal Ryoma if you need to and Musashi should go down eventually.
92 Afterwards, approach the shutter where Lord Ode fled and follow the path.
93 As you come up the stairs, Yodogimi will attack you. Simply use the same strategy s the one against Musashi and she should go down fairly easily as well.
94 After defeating Yodogimi, continue up the stairs. Approach the large door and a Maid will give you Maid’s Obi. Stand still for a moment and the Maid will scream. She will then give you Medicine Box.
95 Enter the large door and prepare to battle Lord Ode Lou. He should not be too hard. Simply wail on him with your strongest attacks until he is defeated.
96 Watch the cutscene. Afterwards prepare to battle Ode Lou again in his Frogsnake demon form.
97 Have Ryoma use Polaris Single Blade to damage the final boss up close. Have Oboromaru use Ninja Strength and Wind Slash from the back. As much as possible, you want to avoid standing diagonally from the Ode Lou to avoid his Drink Blood attack which heals him. Use Fireflies Wake or Water Arts when the final boss transforms the tiles to poison as well. Do not hesitate to use items like Slice of Castella Cake or Izanagi Scroll when your HP is low.
98 Once Ode Lou is defeated, watch the cutscene and ending.

  1. Okay, most of the walkthrough is right, except for an important key point. Namely, the place where the Castle Key key item is. I have no idea where it is, but I know where it isn’t, and it isn’t in the wall trap room with three chests. The shurikens are there as expected, but instead of the key there is a Kiku-ichimonji.
