Sub Mission – Of Withered Grass and Yokai Walkthrough

When you start, by your left is a Shrine you can pray at. Now proceed through the fields, then approach the Yokai Realm to trigger the Skeleton Warrior. Take it out then prepare to battle the incoming reinforcement. Turn around then take out the Skeleton Archer and its Warrior ally. Proceed through the path straight then ascend the slope to cross a narrow path sandwiched in between concrete.

Eventually a ninja will ambush you, time well to punish it with a powerful move. Defeat the two Ninjas that would join in, be wary of the Explosives that it might throw at you. Proceed ahead and eventually a Skeleton Archer will appear from the elevated terrain and attempt to snipe you from above. Take it out first before dealing with the Yoki that spawned simultaneously with it on the ground. Squeeze through the tapering path in between two concrete to eventually arrive in a fenced area.

Advancing forward will summon a Tongue Yokai, make sure to evade well and strike it from the back. Keep hitting it and it will eventually perish. Oni-bi x2 will join in, finish off one at a time then prepare for the next wave. This time, Tongue Yokai x2 will appear. Keep dodging, and focus on one Tongue Yokai at a time, activate the Living Weapon to make quick work of them before you suffer any more damage. Still it’s best to watch out when they lash out their tongue at you.

Once the path is clear, locate the floating orb to end the Mission for good.
