  1. Regarding the Red Ishi in Kaneshiro’s palace, the location is incorrect because all three are inside the palace and not with Jose.

    FIRST LOCATION: OUTER VAULT DOOR WHERE YOU USE TWO KEYCARDS – Take the hallway to the right and use the grappling hook to the upper floor to find the door for the first Ishi.

    SECOND LOCATION: INSIDE THE MONEY LAUNDER ROOM – Sneak outside to the outer ledges of the glass rooms and use the Grappling hook to find the next Ishi door.

    THIRD LOCATION: MAIN VAULT ROOM BEFORE ELEVATOR TO KANESHIRO – Move the last two locks to the left to find a secret area where the third Ishi is located along with a security guard.
