Version History [NBVer] 5. Credits [NBCre] ======================================================================= I. INTRODUCTION [NBInt] ======================================================================= Ninja Blade is an action game that borrows heavily from Ninja Gaiden. If you haven't had enough ninja killing action from Ninja Gaiden 2 recently, then Ninja Blade is right up your alley. It relies more heavily on more obscure things like quick time events and such, and is somewhat of a pale imitator ompared to Ninja Gaiden 2, but it's still a fun little game that isn't too bad for a boring Saturday. ======================================================================= II. HOW TO PLAY [NBHTP] ======================================================================= Ninja Blade is pretty straightforward. If you played Ninja Gaiden before, you'll feel right at home. However, it does have a few wrinkles to make things interesting... QUICK TIME EVENTS Quick time events, hereafter known as QTE, are events where you have to press certain button combinations during cutscenes to continue. Unlike in other games, QTEs are a big part of the game. I've listed all the QTEs. If it's just a button press, it'll just be something like X or A. However, if you have to keep pressing the button, I'll either say rapidfire (in the case that the button is random) or use parentheses around the button, such as (X). Any direction (I.E. RIGHT, LEFT, DOWN, UP) is done with the left analog stick. NINJA VISION Ninja vision allows you to see certain hidden objects or paths you normally can't see. Use it by pressing the LB button. CONTROLS X - Normal Attack Y - Ranged Attack A - Jump B - Ninjutsu RB - Switch Ninjutsu RT - Dash LB - Ninja Vision LT - Block Directional pad - Switch Weapons ======================================================================= III. STORY MODE [NBSto] ======================================================================= +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 1. MISSION 1 [NBM01] +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ When Ken jumps out of the plane, you'll have to press X, X, Y, and Y. Now you'll be in control of Ken. Defeat the three enemies here (you can do it rather easily) and then another three enemies will appear. Defeat them and you'll have another QTE. Press A, then A again. You'll have to now fight a giant enemy. The Giant will swing in a punch, dash towards him to dodge, hit him a few times, then dash away from him. Keep doing this. When he is about to hit the ground to attack, dodge to either side. Sometimes the Giant will be surrounded by flames. Kill the enemies that come out and eventually the flames will stop and you can continue attacking. These three are the Giant's only attacks so you should be able to dispatch it without too much trouble. When it's about to die press X while you're near it to deal the finishing blow, which involves a QTE. Press X, X, A, then Y to defeat the Giant. Go right and jump up the platforms. Eventually you'll learn to wallrun. Perform the wallrun and then go left. You'll find some crates you can break. While you are here, run along the wall and turn the corner on the right. You'll find more crates here. Break them and you'll find a [[HEALTH PIECE]]. Now go back to the main path. Defeat the enemies and you'll have to deal with a QTE. Press DOWN, and go forward across the bars to get to the next platform. Keep going and climb up the wall. Soon you'll find more enemies. Defeat them and move heard. Wipe out the fire with your Ninjutsu, and wall run to the next platform. Keep going and put out any flames you see, while wallrunning to the next few platforms. You'll find some crates you can destroy for some items. Eventually you'll have to fight some enemies. Kill them all, and the Giant will come after you again for a QTE. Press B, A, DOWN, then UP. Now you have to fight a Giant on fire. Use your Ninjutsu to put out the fire the run in and hit him a few times. Eventually the fire will come back up, so dash away when you've got a few good hits in. After a while of this, the whole area wll be set on fire. Use your Ninjutsu to put out as much fire as you can, and continue the attack cycle. When the Giant is near death, go to it and press Y for a QTE. press UP, DOWN, X, X, Y, X, X, then Y. After this another ATE will occur and you will need to press UP. Now keep running while holding down RT, then press A at the end of the hallway. You'll be going down the side of a building now, so be careful. At the end of it you'll fight a giant spider in a QTE. Press B, A, A, A, then Y. When you're safe you'll gain the [[TWIN FALCON BLADES]]. Equip them and kill the bats incoming. More enemies will come afterwards. Kill them with your normal sword. Now go to the edge of the building and press A to go to the next one. You'll find some barrels here, one of which contains a [[CHI PIECE]], another of which contains a [[SHINOBI MOJI]], and yet another of which contains an [[EMBLEM]]. Now, climb up the wall to the next building. Defeat the enemies here, but be careful of the fireballs being thrown your way. When you're close to the big bad here, you'll have to do a QTE. Press A, X, LEFT, A, X, Y, UP, Y, A, Y, then B. Now you'll have the [[STONERENDER SWORD]] in your inventory. You'll have to fight some more enemies, but they should be easy prey with your new sword. Another wave of enemies will come, and when you defeat them a cutscene will occur. It will end in a QTE where you must press Y. You'll see a cracked wall. Use the Stonerender to break it, and go through. There are some barrels with life powerups below if you're hurting. If not, do the wallrun jump. When you have to jump across walls, drop down to the platform and use the Stonerender to destroy the nearby wall. It will lead to some crates, one of which contains the [[PIN STRIPE OUTFIT]], an alternate costume. Now go back up and run across the walls. You'll see some barrels that you can break open. GO to the next platform and another QTE will happen. Press DOWN, X, A, X, Y, and A. Now chase after Arachne. Arachne will shoot energy waves at you. Move to either side to avoid the veritcal ones, and jump to avoid the horizontal ones. When you get close, equip the Stonrender and attack its legs when it slams them into the ground. When both legs are gone, you can attack its head. After a while a cutscene will occur, and end in a QTE. Press (A) to get past it. Continue this cycle. Another QTE will happen. Press A. The legs are guarded by either bats or flames so blow out the flames and start attacking the legs. You'll want to be careful because sometimes a leg will cause a small earthquake to hit you. When you destroy three legs, attack Arachne's body. When its life is gone, press A to start the finishing QTE. Press X, (A), (Y), (A), Y, A, X, then A. That's it for this mission. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 2. MISSION 2 [NBM02] +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ You'll start on a machine gun. se it to hit the monster, and watch out for monsters flying down at you. Keep shooting the worm monster, and eventually you'll trigger a QTE. There are three buttons you have to Press but it's random every time. After these three, press A, and A. Kill the enemies that appear, and another QTE will occur where you have to press RIGHT, then you'll have to fight another monster. This enemy uses attacks you can't see unless you use your ninja vision. So use it, and then keep dodging the attacks as you close in. Attack the enemy a few times then dash out of the way of its attack. After a while the enemy will try to run you over. Press Right to dodge it. After a while normal enemies will come to reinforce the miniboss, but you can take care of them easily. Keep repeating this pattern and the boss will start shooting energy waves at you. When its life is nearly gone, go towards it and press A, then X, A, A, A, Y to kill it. Another worm monster appears, so press DOWN, then Y when the QTE starts and when it finishes, start running away. Jump over the gaps using the bars, and at the edge, jump. You're sliding down the building again, and when you reach the bottom, another QTE will occur. Press UP, (X), A, then A. Now you have to fight the worm monster. First it'll shoot fireballs, then it'll roar and hit the ground. When it does, jump up to avoid the attack, and run in to attack it a few times before dashing away. keep this pattern up. Eventually the enemy will move. When it does it'll use attacks you can't see without ninja vision. Just wait them out. Wait for a chance to attack. After a while of this, the enemy will go down. Keep attacking it, and bats will appear and start attacking you. Kill the bats while dodging the mini- boss' attacks. The miniboss will now use a dash attack agianst you. Dodge it and keep attacking. Now when its life is gona, wallrun to the right platform, then wallrun up again and jump to the platform on the other side. Get near the enemy and press X, then press (A), A, UP, A, and A. Now you'll have to run away. Wallrun across any gaps you see, and when you reach the end, dodge by pressing DOWN. Now, keep running, and wallrun over the pits. You'll come to some platforms you can jup on. Dodge the missiles by wallrunning, then when it's safe, you can destroy the barrels you see to get an [[EMBLEM]]. Use your ninja vision here and you'll see a blue spot on a building. Use your Cyclone Shuriken to make an area where you can grapple. Climb up the building and kill the enemies there. Go up to the platform and kill the enemies here. There are red barrels here (which are explosive), so don't hit them. When you find a pit, jump down and you'll find some barrels. Destroy them for a [[SHINOBI MOJI]] item. Now, keep going and you'll see more barrels. Eventually you'll be shot at by the helicopter. Use the pillars to shield yourself from the bullets, all the while killing a group of enemies. Use a Cyclone Shuriken to reveal a grapple area. Go to the next building and destroy the barrels. Kill all the enemies here, and the boxes nearby have some items. Keep going an destroy the red barrels from afar, and dodge the helicopter's missiles. Go to the next building and kill the enemies here while dodging the gunfire. When the enemies are gone you can fight the helicopter. Block its gunfire, then run to it and attack it. When its life is gone, get near it and press A, then A, X, Y, DOWN, (A). Another QTE will occur, LEFT, A, RIGHT, LEFT, Y. Now you will have the Flame Shuriken. Press B at the QTE. Go across the bridge then use your newly acquired flame shuriken to burn a path through the plants. Wallrun to the next platform, then wallrun again. Use the Cyclone Shuriken to reveal a grapple point and go to the next building. When you get there destroy the barrels nearby for a [[CHI PIECE]]. Keep going and kill the enemies here. And the edge, destroy the wall with the Stonerender, and destroy any red barrels from afar. Keep going and kill the enemies, and use ninja vision as you progress to find an enemy generator. Destroy it, then kill all the enemies. Nearby there is a breakable wall. Destroy it and go in, then destroy the barrels here to find the [[PINE AND CRANE]] outfit. Back in the previous room you will find a fence with a hole you can go through. Go through and kill all the enemies. Keep going and you'll find a place you can wallrun up. Go up the wall, and you'll be on a platform. Destroy the barrels here to get a [[HEALTH PIECE]]. Now, look for a breakable wall in the last room, get through it, then destroy the plant monster with a Flame Shuriken. Go left, the wallrun across, and kill the enemies here. Put out the flames with your Cyclone Shuriken, and jump onto the platform. Climb up and kill the enemies. You'll see a barrel here, and inside holds a [[CHI PIECE]]. Now drop down and kill all the enemies, and keep moving forward. Jump down and press A at the QTE to land. To your front and slightly to the left side is a place you can wallrun up. You'll fight some enemies here. After killing them, destroy the barrels for a [[HEALTH PIECE]]. Now drop back down and kill all the enemies here, then a QTE will occur where you must press A, Left, Right, X, then rapidfire a random button, do it again, then A, and A again. Now you will be on a platform. Kill all the enemies here, then use the Cyclone Shuriken and climb up the grappling point. Go to the next platform and move on to fight the boss, a Snail Monster. The boss is weird. It will fire stuff at you, shoot out its spiked tongue (!?), and shoot blue energy shots. For the second attack, dodge to the side and attack. For the third, jump over them and use Flame Shurikens to attack. Bats will come down to attack you but they are easily dispatched. After a while some worm monsters will appear. You can easily kill them after dodging their initial dash attack. As the boss is dying, he'll start throwing attacks you can't see without your ninja vision, so use it to dodge them and attack the boss whenever you get a chance. When its life runs out go near it, press A, then X, then rapidfire the random button, then A, A, A, UP, DOWN, A, B, and Y. This ends mission 2. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 3. MISSION 3 [NBM03] +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ You'll be on another machine gun now. Shoot the monster as well as the crap it throws at you. Shoot the flying monsters as well, but be sure not to forget destroying the stuff the main baddie keeps chucking. When you stop, switch to missile fire and shoot everything that moves. Switch back to the machine gun when you start moving again, and you'll contend with some flying monsters as well as some vehicles. Eventually you'll reach a QTE. Press (X), and then the random button presses. After a while of killing more flying enemies, another QTE requires you to press Left, and A. Now for a mini boss. Shoot your missiles while taking out the flying mosnters with gunfire. Then you'll have to shoot missile at another enemy before a QTE requiring you to press UP. Now, you'll be off the machine gun so you can fight the miniboss. It'll shoot lightning spheres at you. Dodge these, and pay attention to the top of the screen. If there is a timer, then there will be lasers appearing soon. Dodge the lasers and throw Flame Shurikens at it repeatedly. It will go down eventually, so go in and press A, then X, RIGHT, B, DOWN, UP, A, A, RIGHT, X, A, A, then Y. You'll now gain [[LIGHTNING SHURIKEN]] and have to press B at the end of the cutscene for the QTE. You'll be in control now. Go to your left and destroy the barrels for a [[SHINOBI MOJI]]. Kill the enemies here, and jump down to the platform. Wallrun across the pit and kill the enemies. Use the bars to get to the next building, and kill the enemies. You'll see a breakable wall nearby. Break through it and keep going. Destroy all the barrels here and you'll be able to find a [[HEALTH PIECE]]. Then you'll find some crates with an [[EMBLEM]] inside. Now, keep going and grapple to the next building. Kill the enemies here and break the wall nearby with a flame shuriken, then the stonerender. You'll have to time your wall runs to avoid the barriers set here, and then use a Cyclone Shuriken to disperse the flames ahead and use the bar to go up. Kill the enemies and keep moving forward. Eventually you'll see some plants blocking the path. Use your Flame Shuriken to take care of them, then wallrun forward. Keep going forward and then you'll fight some invisible enemies. You can see them with your ninja vision. You'll find a breakable wall here. Destroy it, and go to the next building. Find the small platform to go on and then break the barrels for a [[CHI PIECE]]. Kill the enemies and keep going. You'll find another platform to drop onto, and there is a breakable wall nearby. Destroy it and you'll find a [[HEALTH PIECE]] inside the crates. Destroy the nearby barrels for the [[HEARTS OUTFIT]]. Now go back and drop down. Kill the enemies here, put out the flames and move forward. Use the bars to reach the boss of the stage. The boss can use a tackling attack, which is obvious because it'll swipe its claw. It'll also breath poison, which you can avoid to attack it. After a while, there'll be a QTE where you have to rapidfire a random button. This will give you an opening to attack the boss. It will then shoot fireballs at you from a distance. When it jumps back, dash in for a few attacks. When the boss' life is at zero, move close and press A, then Y. You'll face off against another boss. When she hits the ground, be prepared to dodge some tentacle attacks. If she's not surrounded by fire, run in and hit here a few times. Make copious use of your shuriken attacks. Like the last boss she'll start throwing stuff at you from afar after a certain point. After she's done firing, she'll use her tentacle attack again, so be ready to run from them. When her life is gone, go near her and press A, then UP, and Y. After these two bosses, Mission 3 is complete. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 4. MISSION 4 [NBM04] +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ You start on a machine gun, AGAIN. Here you'll have to switch between the machine gun and missiles when the different waves of enemies come at you. Use machine guns for unarmored and missiles for armored. After a while a plane and a helicopter will start attacking. Attack the helicopter with your missiles, and watch out for missiles coming from the helicopter. When it's gone, use ninja vision on the plane and you'll see its weak spots. Shoot those with missiles. Be careful of fire balls. After a while you'll have a QTE. Press A, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, X, Y, RIGHT, UP, then (Y). Enemies will keep coming so kill them all. Eventually you'll need to go into the plane. The crates in here will hold a [[SHINOBI MOJI]], as well as an [[EMBLEM]]. Now go out and you'll have to kill some more enemies. Now go back to the other wing and kill some more enemies. Eventually a larger enemy will come down and the wing will be set on fire. Use your Cyclone Shuriken to put out the flames. Now you'll have to go to the other side AGAIN. Keep killing enemies and putting out fires. Eventually you'll have to do a QTE by pressing UP, B, A, A, and A. Kill off the enemies nearby, and put out the flames. Defeat the hydra enemy by throwing flame shurikens at it, then dodging its dashes and attacking it. Go near it when it's almost dead, then press A, A, X, RIGHT, UP, Y, then Y. After a while, press A. When you're inside the plane, start destroying the crates, and you'll find the [[CLOWN OUTFIT]] inside one of them. I just want to say, this is the most ridiculous outfit I've ever seen - and I got all of God of War's outfits. Anyway, clear out the enemies and keep smashing crates, and inside one will be a [[HEALTH PIECE]]. You'll have to do another QTE after all the crates are gone. Press UP then random button presses. Now you have to fight a helicopter. Block its machine gun fire, and the reflect its missiles back at it by attacking them with a normal attack. When the helicopter lands, rush over and attack it. Wait until it gets to the firing missiles part and repeat the process. You'll have to destroy two helicopters this way. Another hydra enemy will come at you. Use flame shurikens to attack and after a while a stronger hydra monster appears. Use your Thunder Shuriken on the left head and reflect the giant fireballs back at the right head. Once both heads are down, the center head will be your main focus. When is shoots an electric sphere, hit it back. You'll have to play tennis with this sphere but after a while a QTE will occur. The buttons here are all random. You'll have to fight another boss now. Use your thunder shuriken to hit it from medium range. When the enemy's fireballs hit the electric shield, it'll damage the boss. Keep using thunder shuriken to upkeep the shield. Get near when the boss is near death and press A, then X, UP, (A), X, (X), random button presses, (B), and Y. Now for the most hilarious scene in the game. Press A, A, random, A, random, then X. Afterwards, press A, random, Y, random, and Y to finish off the stage. Stopping a plane with your bare hands? REALLY? +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 5. MISSION 5 [NBM05] +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ You start the stage with a midboss fight. When the enemy rushes towards you, dodge and when it stopps rolling, attack it. The enemy will start again, then keep avoiding it by dashing. When it stops, attack again. Repeat this cycle. You'll then have to do a QTE. Press X, Y, DOWN, A, then DOWN. After this you'll be falling. Avoid the rubble by dodging from side to side while killing enemies. At the end, press A, then A for the QTE. To the right destroy the crates and you'll find a [[HEALTH PIECE]]. Go towards the breakable wall, kill the invisible enemies, and go through after destroying it. When you see a pit, throw a flame shuriken to reveal a grapple point and then jump over after using ninja vision to spot a plant you can kill with your flame shuriken. Now go to the left and blow out the wall to find another pit. use your flame shuriken to reveal another grapple point, then grapple over and kill the enemies. Int he next room, run across the pools when they aren't electrified and climb up to the platform. Kill the enemies here, and move ahead. You'll fight another midboss here. Kill it the same way you did the first one. The QTE is A, X, X, Y, X, Y. Go onward, and kill any enemies you come across. Eventually you'll need to wallrun across a pit, then upwards to an upper level. Kill the enemies here, then jump on the bars to get to the next area. Kill the enemies here and move on. You'll see a breakable wall soon. Destroy it, kill the invisible enemies, and then break the eggs on the other side of the wall. One has a [[CHI PIECE]]. Head back and wallrun forward. Keep going until you drop down, then use your ninja vision to find a plant you can kill with your flame shuriken. Kill the enemies here, and you'll be able to see some barrels somewhere in the area. Destroy them and there will be a [[HEALTH PIECE]] inside. Now keep moving on, and then you will find a giant plant again. Kill it with a flame shuriken, and then grapple to the next area. Destroy the plant you meet next, then kill the enemies there before going forward. Keep going and you'll reach a cave. You'll see some crates you can detsroy and if you use a flame shuriken on the ledge you can grapple to another platform. There will be barrels here containing a [[CHI PIECE]]. Go to the next platform, then keep going. Kill the enemies, and you'll find some claw enemies; nearby there is a breakable wall. Break through it, then use ninja vision to locate another. Now go back out and turn right. At the edge, jump across the pit and the barrels will contain a [[SHINOBI MOJI]]. Keep going and climb the wall. Go back the way you came and then continue onward. When you reach the next room, use your [[NINJA VISION]] in order to find a hidden barrel. Destroy it to find an [[EMBLEM]]. Keep going and grapple to the next platform, then you'll fight ANOTHER midboss. The same tactics will work as before. You'll then have to QTE to kill it. Press A, then X, Y, X, X, Y. After this you're going to have another QTE. Press UP, RIGHT, A, Y. When you're in control again, use your flame shuriken to make a grapple point appear. Climb up and kill the enemies there. Keep going and break through the wall. Continue onward and destroy the enemies. When you are in the tunnel, kill the enemy after showing it through Ninja Vision, then during the QTE, press UP and A. Now you have to fight a boss. Stones will be thrown at you sometimes. Dodge them and attack the boss whenever you have a chance. Knock some exploding enemies into the boss using the Cyclone Shuriken. If flames appear, use the cyclone shuriken and put them out. When the boss' life is gone you'll have to kill it with a QTE. Press A, then Y, X, UP, A, A, B. After this, press Y, X, UP, A, A, B. Finally press B, LEFT, A, A, UP, A, UP, Y. Now you have to keep hitting the boss. When it shoots fireballs at you jump over them and attack it.

Kill all the enemies here, and you'll eventually see a part to wallrun up as you move on. Kill the enemies, and then cross the bridge. Destroy the plant and keep going. Kill the enemies, and then cross another bridge and jump onto the platform. Jump down, kill the enemies, and move on. Here you'll fight a mid boss. Put out its fire, then attack after its attack when it's still recovering. Keep doing this until it's dead. Keep going, and you'll be able to wallrun upwards. Put out the flames before you go up though. When you get there destroy the barrels and wallrun up the wall nearby and jump onto a platform. Destroy the crates for a [[CHI PIECE]]. Now, drop down and continue on. Keep going forward while killing enemies and eventually you'll have to climb up a wall. Do so for a cutscene. Afterwards, you'll have to kill a crapload of enemies.

Dodge the lasers and the dash, then hit it when you have a chance. Damage it enough and it'll retreat, and a lot of smaller enemies will come at you.

MISSION 7 [NBM07] +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ You're gonna be on a machine gun again. Use the machine gun, and missiles on enemies who can't be taken down with the machine gun. Some enemies shield themselves against gunfire so use missiles on them. You'll face off against a midboss from earlier stages. Use missiles to defeat it. When flying monsters appear, shoot them down with the machine gun. Now you'll be on foot but you'll lose your Ninjutsu. Go to the left path. Keep going forward and killing the enemies. Grapple to the platform, then kill the enemies there. Break down the breakable wall nearby. Kill the enemies on the other side and watch out for missiles. You'll find a wallrun-able column in the room. Go up and kill the enemies here. Keep going and drop down, and kill the enemies, then wallrun up the nearby column. When you get to the top, use your Ninja Vision to see a wallrun location. Use it and break the crates at the top for a [[CHI PIECE]]. Run across the nearby bridge then destroy the barrels for an [[EMBLEM]]. Now drop down to the next area and kill all the enemies here. Now keep going forward and jump up to the next platform. Keep going and you'll reach some tunnels. Jump across the pits and you'll fight a boss. This boss has a dash attack. After it does it, run in and hit it. It will then either slash at you or breath poison gas. Dash back when this happens and then dodge the laser, and the cycle will continue. Eventually it'll send whirlwinds at you. Keep attacking and downing the normal enemies. You'll be able to kill it with little trouble. You'll be thrown back to the beginning of the stage. If you want, you can go back into the left path. Where you fight the missile enemies, wallrun up twice, then blow out the nearby flames. Drop down the pit there and destroy the nearby barrels for a [[HEALTH PIECE]]. Now, use the Cyclone Shuriken to get through the flames, and go in. Kill the enemies and grapple to the next area. Kill the enemies here and blow out the fire, and then break through the breakable wall. Go left, then wallrun forward, and blow out the flames. Kill the enemies here, then destroy the nearby breakable wall, and break the eggs in here for a [[CHI PIECE]]. Go back, and grapple to the next platform and kill the enemy there. Keep going down the path and use the bars to jump across the pit. You'll see a platform on fire nearby. Blow out the fire, then grapple onto the platform. Destroy the crates for the [[SHINOBI MOJI]] as well as the [[CHRYSANTHEMUM AND CHALICE OUTFIT]]. Now go back and keep going down the path, and kill the enemies. Keep moving forward and you'll be in a cave. Kill the enemies and blow out the flames, then go to the next platform to fight a Giant monster. It's the same as the previous incarnations, plus a few normal enemies backing it up, so it shouldn't be too difficult. You're back in the beginning again, go to the last path. Now keep going forward and kill all the enemies. Grapple to a platform with a plant in the center, and set it on fire. You'll then be able to destroy a breakable wall nearby. Keep going and set off the plants as well as a monster generator as you make your way forward. After a monster generator, kill a plant. Then in the same room, go through the nearby breakable wall to find the [[EMBLEM]] in some barrels. Nearby the fences have a hole you can go thruogh. In the next room you can wallrun up and destroy the barrels for a [CHI PIECE]. Now keep going forward and kill the enemies here. You'll have to break through another wall before you can see a plant that you need to set ablaze. Wallrun-jump to the next platform, then kill all the enemies here. Put out the nearby flames and keep going forward, eventually you will have to fight a boss. It will send electric shockwaves at you which are easily dodged. It can also shoot lasers which damage you a lot, but is easily avoidable. Right after it shoots the lasers, run in and hit it. Repeat this cycle. Now you are back in the beginning and you have another path open to you now. Press A at the QTE. You'll be at another falling sequence. At the end of it, press A, then A again. Keep going forward and you'll hit another boss after a bevy of attacks to dodge. It's the spider boss from earlier, the same tactics apply. When there is a cutscene, press X. You'll have to move through the cave again. Another QTE will follow after more battling, for this you press A. When the boss is nearly dead, go to it and press A, then X, Y, A, then (A), and X, X, Y, Y. The final QTE for this mission is A, then Y. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 8. MISSION 8 [NBM08] +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ You'll begin with a QTE. Press A, then A. Afterwards, press A, X, B, X, X, and Y. Afterwards, press X. Then, press DOWN, and (X). Now you'll be in control and fighting a boss. Jump over the shockwaves he throws at you, and block his attacks when you are close, then start attacking. If a cutscene happens, press (X). Keep attacking, and eventually the boss will run away. Break the nearby crate for a [[SHINOBI MOJI]]. More crates nearby hold an [[EMBLEM]] as well as a [[CHERRY BLOSSOM OUTFIT]]. Go to the hole the boss jumped through, and press A at the QTE. When you're fighitng the boss again, just dodge or block his attacks. Another QTE will happen, press DOWN, A, UP, A. Nearby, there are some barrels. Destroy them for a [[CHI PIECE]]. Now keep going forward and another QTE will occur. Press UP, then DOWN. Then press (X). Press (X) again, then Y, then Y, Y, Y. You'll be in control now. Kill the normal enemies, and equip the Ninja Blade. Run to the boss and start smashing into him (start with a dash attack leading into a regular combo). If you see a cutscene, press X to get past the QTE. Eventually another QTE will happen. Press Y, then UP. Then, press A, UP, A, A. Now the boss will use a dashing attack, which is the best time to hit him. Dodge his attack and keep attacking. Eventually the boss will vanish and send some normal enemies after you. Switch out of the Ninja Blade and kill them with normal weapons. After you kill them all he'll reappear. Repeat the process. When his life is gone, go to him and press, A, then X, then X, Y, Y to end the fight, and the mission. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 9. MISSION 9 [NBM09] +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ You are on a machine gun for like the fifth time in the game. Were they running out of ideas or something? Anyway, keep shooting the enemies with the machine gun until the worm monsters shows up. Then start using missiles. After it is dead, go back to using the machine gun on the normal enemies. You'll fight another worm monster and some flying monsters. These are easy by now. Now you fight the true midboss. Shoot missiles at its head, and be sure to shoot down the stuff he throws at you. If he lifts a boulder up, shoot him in the chest area to make him drop it. A QTE will eventually occur. Press DOWN, A, DOWN. You'll now be in control. Laser will shoot down from the sky for a lot of the level, so be prepared to dodge it at any given moment. Kill the enemies, and go forward. Wallrun up to the platform and kill the enemies there. Keep going ahead until you see a breakable wall. Kill the enemy that comes out and go grapple to the next building. Kill the enemies here, then use the bars to jump to the next building. Kill the enemies here, then go to the left and break down the wall there. Beyond there is an [[EMBLEM]]. Keep moving forward while killing enemies and go to the next building by grappling. Kill the enemies here. Go to the left up a path to the platform where the gunmen were. Now go to the next building and keep going through, and break through the wall. Grab the [[HEALTH PIECE]] here and return to the last building. Now, Jump down and blow out the fire here. Grapple to the next building and you'll fight a Giant enemy again. It'll have some backup, but by this time its attacks are pretty old hat and you can take it down with no real problems. Now go to the next building. Kill the enemies here, move forward, use the bar to jump down, and kill the enemies there. GO up to the platform and grapple to the next building after killing the enemies. You'll fight another boss here. Jump over the shockwave attacks, and attack him. If he makes electric then avoid them. If he makes fire, run until he stops, put them out, and then attack him some more. After a while he'll just give up and start shooting electric bolts at you. Dodge the bolts and keep attacking him. His attacks from now on is rather straightforward, and he will eventually start summoning enemies to fight you, but they should all be easily taken care of. Now, when his life bar is at 0, go to him, press A, then X, LEFT, Y, A. Now go down the stairs and then go left. Kill the enemies here, break through the wall, and keep going while dodging the steam barriers, and wallrun up to the next platform. Blow out the fire, then grapple, and then wallrun to the next building. Jump down, and you'll have to avoid some more steam. After this you'll see a breakable wall. Go through it and go to the left to find a [[SHINOBI MOJI]]. Cross the nearby bridge and break through the wall to the next building and you'll find the [[MAPLE OUTFIT]]. Now, keep going through the next breakable wall. You'll be swarmed by enemies here, but it's actually not that hard since they're all weak as hell. Use the bar to get to the next platform and fight a midboss. Attack it, and when it goes out of your attack range, prepare to dodge its dashing attack. When the normal enemies come out, kill them all to make the midboss come back. Keep attacking the midboss. Eventually it'll start shooting electricity out. Dodge it, and keep attacking. After it is defeated, keep going forward. Kill the enemies that follow, and you'll eventually see a bar to use to get to the next platform. Keep going forward to fight the boss. You'll want to wallrun on his blade when he brings it down to get to the next few platforms. Eventually he'll throw fireballs at you (which you can easily dodge), and if he makes a yellow cube thing, watch out, because he'll start shooting fire. Put out the flames and strike his hand. He'll also use an electric attack. Avoid it, then hit his left hand. After a while the boss will start shooting lasers from his eyes. His head will be in range now, so dodge the lasers and keep attacking him. When his head is low enough, use the Ninja Blade to hit him. This will trigger a QTE. Press (A), then LEFT, A, and X. His pattern is easy to figure out, it's just that it'll take a while before you whittle down his life bar. When his life is gone, go to his sword, wallrun, jump towards him, and then press A. Press X, X, LEFT, X, A, Y, A. Then DOWN at the next QTE. You'll now have to fight the final boss. Block his attack using the LT button, then keep attacking with X. Afterwards, switch to the Ninja Blade and attack. Keep doing this and when his life is gone, go to him, and press A. Then, press X, Y, and finally, Y. THe boss will go down and you'll have beaten the game. Congratulations! ======================================================================= IV.
