Enemies and Yokai in this mission:
  • Yokai Enemies
NPCs in this mission:
  • none

For this Tutorial mission, players will need to execute various combat mechanics to complete it. There are no rewards for this mission, but instead, it is a guide to help players better understand the mechanics of the Yokai Shift, primarily the Brute form. In Brute form, you cannot be staggered by enemy attacks. A Brute you may be, but savage you are not. Your inhuman strength is only made greater by the techniques you master with your human mind. Fang Break allows you to repel enemy attacks. Repelling an attack will inflict a heavy staggering effect on a human enemy. Yokai enemies will both be staggered and forced to release some of their Amrita.

  • Fang Break: While in Brute Form, press L1 +  (Y on Xbox/Steam controller) with the right timing when an enemy attacks.
