Kingdom Hearts II/Hollow Bastion
This page is a stub. Help us , and you get a cookie.
Once you land in Hollow Bastion, you'll discover that all of the shops are in the first area (the "Marketplace"), and that they sell exactly the same items as Twilight Town, with the addition of Ethers in the Item Shop. As you move onwards, you'll see a Moogle hanging out in fron't of the Synthesis Shop. If you want, you can hand over your two types of materials, and receive an Elixir in return.
When you enter the "Borough" area, you'll be greeted by Yuffie, but are then attacked by Dusks. Use this opportunity to test out Valar Form (this requires Goofy to be alive). Even without this, you'll be helped by the town's defencive system, which throws everything (including you) into the air uncontrollably.
After the battle, you'll receive the Marketplace Map for your troubles. Head to "Merlin's House", where you'll be greeted by the "Hollow Bastion Restoratin Committee" (consisting of: Leon, Aerith, Cid, Yuffie and Merlin). After the cutscene, you will receive a Membership Card and the Blizzard magic!
Afterwards, feel free to pick up the treasure scattered around the "Borough", and then head to the "Bailey". Once the cutscene has finished, you have to defend the gate from the hoards of Nobodies.
Defending the Gate
The gate has a healthbar, and if it runs out, then it's a Game Over. Dusks and Creepers you've seen before, but Samurai are new. They only seem to attack you when you attack them first. They also have a reaction command called Duel Stance, whereby the command list empties, then when 'The End' appears, select it quickly. If you don't do it fast enough, then you'll get hit insead. If you wish, use the Blizzard magic that you just received. The Nobodies drops lots of MP orbs, so you should never run out.
A new positive feature to this game is that the guest characters that join you can actually defeat an enemy this time, rather then just pretending to. Leon's attacks include a fireball, and after a while, his gumblade will glow white, and grow considably. This means that it has a much larger range, and it also appears to do more damage.
Once the battle has finished, you will receive Fire magic. A cutscene shows the remaining members of Organisation XIII arriving in Hollow Bastion to taunt Sora. The Keyhole for the world will be sealed, and you'll receive Secret Ansem Report 7.
After you leave the world automatically, you have two choices - either The Land Of Dragons or Beast's Castle. This walkthrough will assume that you head to the former first (which also has the lower battle level).
- Drive Recovery = On the walkway leading to the "Bailey", on he lefthand side
