Unlockables[edit]

Character sets[edit]

  • Swimsuit outfits - Complete the game as Bill or Jaguar with an overall S ranking to unlock that character's second outfit. You must complete the game with a 100% in each level to unlock Lucia's outfit. Unlocking Jaguar's swimsuit outfit also unlocks video #11 in the Theater.
  • Lucia - Complete all of Easy mode (the first four stages) in under 18 minuets. This is actually very easy since hit percentage doesn't matter, only time. Just ignore what you can and blast a path through each stage. If you're still having trouble, complete Stage 5 on Normal to get Weapon Set D.
  • Katana - Jaguar's special weapon, which is selected through an outfit called "Katana Jaguar". This is unlocked as soon as you finish any stage on Normal difficulty. The Katana is the most powerful weapon in the game and can take out bosses in a few swings, if you can get close enough to them, that is.

Training Mode[edit]

Beating stages 5, 6, and 7 (any ranking) adds that stage to the list of selectable stages in Training Mode, as well as unlocks a new Weapon Set.
