The Point of No Return
Mission Start Text
The forest, where those who have fallen in battles past now rest, seems to be brimming with yokai.
Despite all my master has done, there are remain those unquiet spirits not properly laid to rest who have become monsters. The sight of so many familiar faces amongst that horde is more than I can bear.
Please, can you see to it that they can finally rest?
Mission End Text
I see. So, as expected, Yoshitatsu was among them. But what could it have been that drove her to do what she did? It cannot be the yokai blood that flowed in her veins, for you have not succumbed to the same fate. Oh Hide, I only hope you can lead us to a future where yokai and humankind can coexist without bloodshed.
The Point of No Return Walkthrough
A Familiar Foe
This sub-mission is pretty much straightforward where players just need to defeat the boss. It's recommended that you make further preparations such as preparing Ninjutsu, Magic, equipping your best armor, weapon, etc. before starting this mission since there are no shrines here. When you arrive in the area, you'll see a familiar boss that you fought not too long ago, and that is Saito Yoshitatsu. Her moves are still the same during your battle in the Main Mission: The Hollow Fortress. It seems Yoshitatsu is one of those spirits who hasn't found peace.
You can click here to learn more about this boss or you can check the video guide that is linked below - successfully killing this boss completes this mission and you'll also be able to obtain a Guardian Spirit: Kagewani.

Trivia & Notes:While the Saito Yoshitatsu fought in the "Hollow Fortress" mission only uses the two Guardian Spirits the player did not choose during character creation, the one fought in this mission appears to use two chosen at random, including the one the player chose.
