Journey Into the Past Walkthrough

Investigate the Settlement

  • Look around the area for clues after finding out about the happenings in southern Toyotama. 
  • If you talk to a villager, you will find that they are of no help, so you must investigate the area for clues. 

Investigate the Mongol presence

  • Check the Mongol Yurt and the altar nearby towards the right. This will then trigger a cutscene.

Defeat the Mongols

  • This will begin a battle sequence against a few Mongols. This might also be your first encounter with a Shaman. A Shaman's songs will make your enemies stronger, so focus on clearing Shamans first. 
  • Clear the Mongols in the area to continue

Interrogate the Mongol Shaman

  • After clearing them, you'll want to find out who these invaders are. Now, talk to the Shaman. He will mention the Call of the Eagle. This will begin a cutscene introducing The Eagle and their plans. You'll find out that they are currently staying at Iki Island.

Speak with the Boatman to sail for Iki Island

  • Head towards the shore and speak to the boatman. They'll warn you that this will begin a long series of tales. 
  • Continue the dialogue until a cutscene begins.
  • A storm will interupt your journey and you will find yourself ashore separated from your horse. 
  • Head through the area with the large bone carcasses and head through them. Climb the rock platform and enter the cave. 
  • Head all the way in until you are blocked by some wooden structures. 
  • Use your grappling hook to interact with the wooden wall and clear your way. This will trigger the introduction of Iki Island.
