Yoyogi Park

Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster - Yoyogi Park

Yoyogi Park Walkthrough

1 Leave a medical center for a cutscene. The world map is different due to conception.
2 Move west and pass by the first city.
3 Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster - Yoyogi Park West Entrance Map LocationGo south and get in between the second city and the west entrance of Yoyogi Park. The entrance has a red marker.
4 Enter the park and watch another cutscene with Pixie.
5 We recommended keeping her in your party in order to unlock a special area later in the game. If you let her go, you will acquire the Ankh Magatama immediately but it can be purchased later on from shops.
Should you part with Pixie?
6 After the cutscene, enter the park. Go forward and examine the floating cube (Chakra Drop x1).
7 Go west (compass: north) and reach the end. Enter the door to find another floating cube (Dis-Poison x1).
8 Leave the area and head to the other side. Go south (compass: south) and enter the door at the end. Inside the area, acquire the item from a floating cube (Life Stone x2).
9 Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster - Yoyogi Park 2 Fountain of LifeEnter the door with a green mark and it will lead you to the Fountain of Life. This facility can heal, revive, and cure status and mental ailments. Unlike healing rooms and healing spirits, you need to pay Macca for this service.

5 Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster - Cathedral of ShadowsHead south (compass: west) to find the Cathedral of Shadows. This is facility helps you fuse for new demons. For now, you don’t need to worry about it right now. (Optional: You can fuse Kodama and Shikigami to acquire Jack Frost. This demon gives you access to Bufu or ice skills. Also, you can import skills like Zan, Zio, and Tarunda to add more utility to this demon. Don’t worry about losing demons in your stock. Once the Demonic Compendium feature is unlocked how in Ikebukuro, you can see you previously acquired demons already registered)
