I try to include as little from the story as possible to keep from having a very lengthy document. I also don’t include information that can easily be obtained from the game booklet or game menus, such as character stats, etc. I have tried to find as many of the secrets and items as possible, but since I am writing this as I play through the game without a guide I may miss a few things. If I do please let me know and I will add them in. I hope my walkthrough helps you make it through the game. Enjoy! Walkthrough by Ohkichan.
