[Episode 1] Welcome to East Edge City
After an unorthodox arrival, Acarno finally finds himself in East Edge City. Having escaped Kondo and his cronies, and briefly acquainting himself with Veltor Cutris and Chris Lanebecca, Acarno is now in possession of the Unknown Capsule – but what is it? And what does all of this mean?
To progress any further you will need to find some answers, which can be found at one of the city’s many buildings; D-NA Bar.
Once Acarno emerges from the water, he will examine the UNKNOWN CAPSULE and you will be given a chance to press a button. This makes no change to the game’s proceedings, so do as you please – if you choose to press the button, a muffled audio message will play. If not, the message will automatically play very shortly.
Throughout the course of the game you will return to your current location; East Edge City. Your visits will occur in-between the game’s Episodes. You’ll return for a number of reasons such as buying and selling items and weapons, gathering intel from the locals and generally exploring the hidden extras the city has to offer. All the necessary journeys needed will be covered in this walkthrough, but the city offers many destinations to visit and things to do, so feel free to explore for yourself. You can also check out the East Edge City Guide here.
Starting from the point at which Acarno exited the water, your first destination is the Museum of East Edge – follow the below steps;
There are various movies you can watch at the museum, all of which explain the story and world surrounding OverBlood 2. The various movies you can watch are all relatively short, but worth watching if you want to get the most out of the story.
The doors to the building are underneath the two US flags at the top of the small set of stairs. Once inside, head over to the kiosk and interact with the worker – this will enable you to select a film to watch. After making your choice, you can enter the cinema room using the double doors at the end of the hallway.
Special movies are released at specific points in the game;
- The 1st Cinema Special is unlocked between episodes 1 and 2.
- Between episodes 3 and 4, both the 2nd and 3rd Cinema Specials are unlocked at once.
After you are finished inside the Museum of East Edge, the next destination is D-NA Bar. Follow the directions below to get there;
When you arrive at D-NA Bar, head towards the front door underneath the illuminated sign to trigger some dialogue from Acarno. Head inside the bar when he’s finished talking.
After the cut scene – during which you meet Raz (the same Raz Karcy from the original game, only now with a Scottish accent) – you will have gained 1000 CREDITS. Head behind the bar and interact with Raz again and he will inform you that you will need a HOOK SHOT and a GRAVITY CONTROLLER before you can proceed to Billboard Island.
After speaking to Raz for a second time, exit the bar. Walk around the back of Raz’ flymobile (the vehicle parked on the right of the bar which says “Don’t Touch” on it’s hood) and pick up the HOOK SHOT.
Your next destination is Basilica Intersection – to get there, follow the directions below;
At Basilica Intersection locate the man with orange hair wearing a black outfit – interact with him to meet Siver Otakki. During your visits between Episodes 1-5 of the game, Siver can be found here and will offer prizes in exchange for answering his questions correctly.
You’ll need to buy a GRAVITY CONTROLLER next, so head towards the top of the screen at Basilica Intersection and you will emerge in Shop Street.
When you arrive at Shop Alley, Gotti Tools is the brightly coloured building on your left. Interact with the owner and sell the GEO STONE you picked up at the airport – note that you can sell any stones you pickup throughout the game here.
Buy the GRAVITY CONTROLLER – note that normally items purchased around East Edge City require payment, but not on this occasion.
You shouldn’t need any more items for now so head back to the D-NA bar. Use the directions below if you cannot remember your way back;
Re-enter the bar and head downstairs once inside. Talk to Raz and select; “Yes, let’s start”.
