Your objective for the labyrinth will be displayed on top of the screen: to find Kino’s bits. You’ll be stopped by Holo-Ghouls as you try to do this. You can’t fight the Holo-Ghouls directly, but you can distract them using Holo-Shields, so there’s a bit of a stealth aspect to this maze.

After starting this area, make your way west, and then northwards. You’ll collect your first bit while making your way there.

You’ll find your first Holo-Ghoul in the North-West area of the maze. Collect a shield (there should be one near the western edge of the labyrinth), and go to the dead-end just to the east of the Holo-Ghoul. Drop your shield at the dead-end and rush south and out of the Holo-Ghoul’s way.

Once the Holo-Ghoul is in the dead-end alley, quickly run past where the Holo-Ghoul originally was. This will get you past the Holo-Ghoul and you can easily collect your second bit.

Collect a nearby shield and repeat what you did before – find a dead-end, put your shield there, then backtrack out of the Holo-Ghoul’s way, so that you can escape while the Holo-Ghoul goes into the dead-end alley.

Now proceed north and then east, so that you reach the horizontal center of the labyrinth. Proceed south from here, towards the crystal, but along the eastern alley.

Go as far south as you can go, and then east, towards the glowing bit. This one should be easily acquirable.

Return to the top of the labyrinth by backtracking the way you came.

Bypassing the next Holo-Ghoul is tricky. Head into the western alley that goes towards the crystal, and stop about where the Holo-Ghoul on the west is located.

Drop your shield here, then quickly run into the eastern alley leading towards the crystal. When the Holo-Ghoul from the north has passed you, quickly rush through its original location. Notice that the Holo-Ghoul to your south will also be headed for the shield, so you’ll have be quick!

Once you’re in the clear, proceed along the labyrinth until you find another Holo-Ghoul blocking your way. You can easily sneak past it with the usual dead-end trick – just place your shield to the dead end alley to the west of the ghoul, run to the south, and escape once the coast is clear.

Bypassing this Holo-Ghoul will give you access to the final bit. Now make your way back using the same dead-end shield strategy and then head to the center of maze, near where we found the third bit.
