Da’at Traversal

The alternate world below Tokyo known as Da’at has a variety of elements to explore. One of these are leylines, connecting different regions of Da’at together, which can be used for features such as saving game data.

Additionally, leylines can be used to access the Cadaver’s Hollow. There, items can be purchased or sold to the master of the area, Gustave (voiced by Yusaku Yara). Gustave’s pawns, known as Miman, can be found hidden throughout Da’at. Finding Miman and returning them to Gustave will give the player various rewards based on the amount found. Finding Miman also rewards the player with Glory, used to obtain the special skills called “Miracles.”

Da’at also has various other elements to find such as treasure, giant statues of demons which are relics from the war 10 years ago, Abcesses that generate demons, or guide demons that will help the player navigate Da’at.
