Unlocking the camera

  1. The camera is not automatically available from the start. Therefore, there'll be no photography-related activities for you at the beginning.
  2. Acquiring a camera is part of the main story. In Chapter 1, in Yokohama, you will start the main mission Locating the Camera, which is given by the inventor Igashichi Iizuka.
  3. As part of the mentioned mission, you must steal camera plans from the enemy camp. This involves defeating a group of bandits and the miniboss Mochisuke Kira. After locating and delivering the plans, you will receive a prototype of the camera and immediately test it.

  1. For convenience, it is worth placing the camera in one of the 4 item slots - this will allow you to select this gadget with a single press of the button on the controller's D-pad.
  2. Theoretically, you can take photos everywhere, but the most important thing to keep in mind are the new collectibles marked on the map with a camera icon. They will also appear in the areas already visited.
  3. Browse the descriptions of photos from the map (triangle after hovering over the icon), because they may have additional requirements regarding the time of day or weather conditions (e.g. taking a picture on a sunny day. If necessary, you can speed up the passage of time. We have described this on the page How to change the time of day?.
