– Explore 3 main locations at the start
– These include forest and buildings around the mountain

Mikomori Onsen

– An abandoned old, big house known as a famous ghost spot where lots of ghosts are

Kurosawa Antiques

– Also a cafe
– Yuuri lives and works here
– People come here to request lost things be found, or have their fortunes told by Hisoka

Shirazu no Mori

– A forest in the mountain
– Ever since it became famous as a suicide spot, there’s been a big fence around it, which people sneak in through
– There are also rumors of a murderer hiding inside


– Plays out a bit like mission mode
– Choose your mission and then you unlock new missions
– You can replay missions as much as you’d like
– Once you complete the chapter goals, you get the next chapter
– Your goal is to find people
– Each person has different reasons for going to the mountain and getting there, so you’ll have to gather as much info about them as you can
– You can use something that’s like a “scent” of a person from things like a hair, their documents etc.
– That aids your “kagemi”
– Then you use your clues to search for them
– If you chase the memories of them you’ll find them, so you have to follow their past footsteps
– When you find them and “bring them back” from their spiriting away, it’s mission complete, but you’ll have to watch out for the ghosts lurking
– You can also use your “ghost sight” to find hints from ghosts
– Looks kind of like hidden ghosts in other games
– Gameplay on the TV
– Map on the GamePad
– The touch system for picking up items is back
– Ghost hands are also back
