Walkthrough[edit]

  • Go forward to the break in the walkway.
  • You will see 2 metal crates on tracks.
  • Line up the 2 crates and head across them to the gate.
  • Turn around and use Magnesis to line up the 2 metal crates along the left-hand side of their tracks.
  • This will complete a circuit and open the gate behind you.
  • Inside the next room, go down the stairs.
  • Start by using Magnesis to push the 2 nearby metal boxes on tracks forward.
  • Pull the metal crate you pushed back, breaking the electric connection.
  • Go along the walkway in front of you.
  • This will lead you to the other metal boxes charged with electricity.
  • Once again, use Magnesis to grab the metal box in front of you and move it along the track it is on to the right.
  • Look to the far metal boxes, move the one of the right toward the end of the track.
  • Move on the metal box closer to you back toward you, then align the farther box with it to create a bridge between this walkway and the one of the other side.
  • On the metal box, move the other ones back into alignment to create a circuit and pass the electric charge into the nearby rod, opening the door by you.
  • Jump through the now open gateway and up the stairs ahead on the right.
  • This leads to the final room with a treasure chest in the back of it.


  • There are 6 metal crates, 3 of which you can climb up.
  • If you want to access the treasure chest, push the low climbable crate all the way over to the right.
  • Move the solid metal crate just to the left of it, the electric charge should still be passing through it.
  • Move the top right climbable crate just to the left of the solid one you just moved.
  • Slide the climbable middle crate just to the left of the top climbable crate. This should be 1 crate distance from the solid one.
  • Finally, move the solid crate on the low track just below to the climbable one on the middle track.
  • This will complete a circuit, raising the gate in the semi-hidden back room.
  • Go past the crate you just put into position and into the hallway behind it.
  • Head around the corner and over to the chest.
  • Open it to claim the Royal Bow inside it.
  • Head back out, it is time to get up to the higher walkway.


  • Slide the climbable low metal crate away from the power source, next to the other low metal crate.
  • Climb up onto the middle crate.
  • Once there, use Magnesis to move the top climbable crate to allow access across to the walkway.
  • Get on the very top platform, next to the gate on the walkway.
  • Slide the climbable crate over 2 crate distances.
  • Grab low climbable metal crate and set it back to its starting position.
  • Finally use Magnesis to grab the middle crate and place it between the top and low crates.
  • Use magnesis to make any corrections and complete the circuit.
  • Go through the now open gate behind you.
  • Turn to the left and take the stairs upwards.
  • Climb the stairs and interact with the Monk Takama Shiri.
