Ever since its original release on PlayStation 2, Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster has been considered a challenging role-playing game, since it introduced tons of new mechanics to the series as well as new spins to already established ones, like the moon phase mechanics.
The phase of Kagutsuchi regulates a lot of other mechanics as well, including Demon Fusion and the items you can get from some very special treasure chests called Mystical Chests. Here’s how to take advantage of these mechanics to get the best possible items at all times.
How to Get the Best Items From Mystical Chests in Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster
As already mentioned, the items you get from Mystical Chests, which are special chests that different from the regular Cache Cubes, change depending on the current Kagutsuchi Phase. As a general rule, the rewards get better the closer you are to Full, so you should always wait for the Full phase before opening a Mystical Chest.
“Controlling” the phase of Kagutsuchi is also quite simple, as it will change not only as you travel from one place to another on the world map, but also while inside dungeons. A very simple way to take advantage of the Mystical Chest mechanics is to locate one inside a dungeon and move from the room the chest is in to the next until the phase of Kagutsuchi gets full. Since the game is extremely challenging, you will need all the help you can get, which Mystical Chests can definitely provide, granted you are doing things the proper way!
