Twilight Mission – Where Dark Forces Gather Walkthrough

First Wave

The first wave of enemies will have Samurai Yokai equipped with either a katana, a spear, or a bow. Sometimes these Yokai will be summoned in two, so try to separate the two enemies that will spawn before engaging in battle.

The last enemies that you will encounter in the first wave are the One-Eyed Oni and the One-Eyed Imp. Go around the back of the Oni before it is fully awakened to deal critical damage, then target the Imp and kill it first before fighting the Oni.

Second Wave

The second wave summons ninjas in the battlefield. These ninjas are quite agile and could attack you in groups, so use your reflexes well in order to dodge their attacks.

The first boss in this wave is an Oni that is wielding dual katanas. As opposed to the One-Eyed Oni, this enemy moves faster and could dodge your attacks quicker, so time your strikes well against this opponent. The second boss in the wave are two large Yokai wielding axes. These bosses will be accompanied by a Biwa Boku-boku so kill that enemy first before engaging the two Yokai.

Third Wave

Arguably the hardest wave to complete, this wave will spawn several Onyudos, Wheelmonks, and Oni-Bis. Reserve you guardian spirit once two Onyudos are spawned in battle as fighting them without a guardian spirit could be difficult to accomplish. After the two Onyudos, two Wheelmonks will appear, try to separate them from each other then attack them one by one. There will also be some Water Oni-Bis that will distract  you from killing the Wheelmonks, so kill those first before fighting the wheel-like Yokai.

The last enemies that will spawn in the area are a Biwa Boku-boku and a powerful Revenant. Kill the Biwa Boku-boku first before fighting the Revenant. This Twilight Mission will be over once you’ve defeated the Revenant.
