Toro and the Shooting Star Guide
It just, wasn't, enough. Put on your helmets and walk through the halls of a feature that goes above and beyond the call of insanity.
Jibun no Kara
|You and Toro have escaped to the hallway after the shooting star’s, er, forceful introduction and have taken cover. He’s a little freaked out, but you can calm him down if you want. Toro suggests you try and get to the bottom of the crash and maybe even find the star.
Walk downstairs and talk to Yuu and Kaojai by the entrance. They’re as rattled as you are, but they say that apprently the star crashed on Ura Hill, so Toro coaxes you up there.
You’ll arrive at the trail leading up to the hill, outside the shrine. Go walk over to the right where the big bell is and let Toro go up and gong it when he asks. Mitsuru storms out, startled by the noise, but he settles down and introduces himself.
After finishing your conversation, go down the path to the left until you spot Ricky. After saying hi, continue on down the path and into the next screen until you meet Andrew.
Andrew won’t let you through because you’re not punk enough. You may disagree, but there’s a way around this: just go back down the path and talk to Mitsuru. Answer the inputs, then go talk to him again when he moves over to Ricky.
Sit through the conversation, answer the next input, and eventually you’ll get to tell Mitsuru about Andrew’s behavior. He’ll march over and put some sense into the chicken, thus letting you through to the top of the hill. Onward!
Doko Demo Info
Whereas past Doko Demo Issyo games have been about communication, Toro and the Shooting Star is more about community, says scenario director Tatsuhiro Kitagawa. As much as anything, he wanted to illustrate the closeness and friendliness of people and Pokepi in a quiet little town, something you don’t usually get in a larger city setting. The architecture helps out in that regard, with pretty much everywhere in town is tiny and folksy; the Yumemi-sou apartments in particular remind Kitagawa of his days living in a cramped dorm during college. And they say you can’t go home again.
