Unlocking Extras

There are plenty of reasons to replay Onimusha 2 including new mini-games, bonus modes, and hidden costumes. To unlock all these features you will need to replay the game several times, completing all the scenarios and increasing the difficulty settings. After you finish the game the first time you are given a flowchart of the game's story that shows the route you took for that game. Any unexplored areas, side-quests, or sub-character encounters are color coded and those that haven't been explored are grayed out. Use this chart to figure out which characters you need to bond with and which path you need to take the next time you play. Scenario percentages are cumulative for all games played as long as you don't delete your Onimusha system settings.

Gameplay Modes

If you die more than three times in one game you will be given the choice to enable this mode for the current game or restart the game in Easy Mode. This mode makes the game much easier to finish, but you will be unable to achieve an Onimusha Ranking if you enable it. It is a great way to quickly finish the game multiple times to get all of the Scenario Routes completed. You can also unlock the Onimusha 3 teaser and two mini-games; "The Man in Black", and "Team Oni".

If you thought the Normal Mode was just too darn easy then you can try the Hard Mode once you have beaten the game in Normal mode. In this challenging mode there are twice as many monsters and they all have double their normal strength, speed, and hit points. To make it even harder, all of your healing items restore 25% less health to your power meter.

If you somehow manage to finish the game on the Hard difficulty setting you will unlock this fun bonus feature. Simply start a new game and toggle Ultimate Mode to ON and you will get to play the game with these settings:

  • Unlimited Magic
  • Tanegashima w/ Unlimited Normal Bullets
  • Tri-Barrel w/ Unlimited Burst Bullets
  • Bow w/ Unlimited Arrows
  • Bow w/ Unlimited Fire Arrows
  • Rekka-Ken (The ultimate sword from Level 20 of Purple Phantom Realm)
  • All Yagyu Armors at Level 3
  • Perfect Medicine x30
  • Talisman x10

This mode is unlocked after you have completed the Team Oni mini-game. The difficulty level is the same as the Normal Mode but you can only kill enemies with Critical Hits. Yes - that includes boss fights too.

After you finish Onimusha 2 on any difficulty level this mini-game will be available in the Special Features menu. This game has Jubei dressed in a black suit and armed only with a stick made out of sponge. You are on a 5-minute timer as you explore your house in the Yagyu Village and the first part of the Fog Valley level. You must collect 20 rolls of film and make it to the exit before the timer or Jubei expires. To make things even more challenging you will have to fight plenty of demons and your sponge stick only knocks them down. You cannot kill them.

Your reward for completing this challenging game are 20 movies you can view that feature events from the game with Jubei dressed in his black suit. Use the following map to aid your in your quest. Note: You will need to solve the Guardian Puzzle but don't waste time collecting the two halves of the picture. Simply use the ring and align the dragons so the Black is on top, Blue on the right, Red on the bottom, and White on the left.

Once you have exited the challenge you can view these movies:

  • Film 1: Evil Attack on Yagyu Village
  • Film 2: Meeting Takajo
  • Film 3: Meeting Oyu
  • Film 4: Meeting Ekei and Magoichi
  • Film 5: Eerie Monsters
