Talk to the guy in yellowish suit

Tourists, huh? There are some things you should know that'll come in handy when you travel around the world......

Want me to tell you what they are?

Tell me

Then let me explain how to use the world map.

Well then, what do you want to know?

Changing the camera angle

First of all, press the [L2 button] on the controller to change the camera angle.

There are 2 angles to choose from, select the one you like.

You can then rotate the angles either way by pressing the [L1 button] and [R1 button].

Try different angles until you find the one you like best. It makes the journey a lot more fun!

Anything else you'd like to know?

Map indicators

Operating the buttons

Nope, I got it

Map indicators

Press the [Start button] once to view the World Map.

There is a large and small map. Learn when to use which, and you won't get lost as much.

Push the [Start button] twice to change the size of the map, and once more to turn it off.

Pretty easy, huh?

Anything else you want to ask?

Changing the camera angle

Operating the buttons

No, that's all

Operating the buttons

You can ride things by pressing the [SELECT button] and get off by pressing the [cancel button]. This isn't so hard, either!

Oh, yes, yes. You can't dash with the World Map on, so make sure not to press the [cancel button] unless you get off.

Remember this because Chocobos will run away as soon as you get off them, so be careful.

Anything else you want to ask?

Changing the camera angle

Map indicators

No, that's all

Once on the World Map you can access the menu to save your game anywhere. It's a good idea to save frequently!

Well then, bon voyage!

I already know

Is that so? Well, that's that. Have a nice trip.

Before Meteor is summoned

Talk to the man with orange hair

After flashback to Nibelheim, before arriving in Costa del Sol

Listen to me! Just now, some guy in a black cloak goes walked east towards that grassy field.

And he's got this killer sword, and is looking REAL scary......

Other times

Aw, c'mon! Listen to me! Got anything interesting to say?......

Talk to the guy with yellow cap

Thanks to Shinra, Inc. developing Mako energy for us, everything's more convenient now.

Talk to the guy with yellow cap again

Maybe a little too convenient.

Talk to the girl with brown hair

The famous floating city, Midgar... Just once I'd love to see it in person.

Talk to the girl with brown hair again

South of this town past the Mythril Mine and far to the west is a Shinra harbor called Junon.

They say there's a reactor and many tall buildings there. I hope to see it someday.

Talk to the guy with black hair

I heard President Shinra was killed. And his son Rufus, the new president, was badly hurt.

Hey, I bet that's news to you?

Hey you're pretty clued!!

Heh, heh, heh......This is just between us. I heard it was that there Ava-whaddya call-ums that attacked the President Shinra and his son.

Don't care...

Don't care? If you're going to travel, you'd best keep an eye on what Shinra's doing.

Talk to the guy with black hair again

Shinra is leading the world around by the nose, and you guys are just gonna sit back and take it?

Talk to the woman in purple

Before she walks away from the meter??

What does it do? It checks the pressure of the Mako energy sent from Midgar.

After she walks away from the meter

I hear that the natural resources near the reactors are being sucked dry.

We're better off with them bringing in the Mako energy.

I hear that the natural resources near the reactors are being sucked dry.

We're better off with them bring in the Mako energy.

Talk to the kid in the tunnel

My old man was a miner, but he couldn't go to work after monsters started appearing in the Mythril Mine.

Now all he does is sit around getting drunk in the bar...

After Meteor is summoned

Talk to the man with orange hair

Before Cid becomes party leader

Huh? You're looking for your friend? You want to know where the Lifestream is?

Let's see, I can't help you with your friend, but I've heard about the Lifestream.

When I traveled to the southern islands, a doctor was very kind to me. I seem to recall him telling me something about the Lifestream......

After Cid becomes party leader, before the Shinra rocket hits Meteor

Hey, listen to me! The Shinra troops are on the move.

The TV news said Rufus came up with 2 plans. One, is to launch a rocket into space containing Huge Materia......

Is Huge Materia really that destructive?

After the Shinra rocket hits Meteor, before the barrier at Northern Crater goes down

Listen to me! Something really big's happening in Midgar.

They were just saying on TV it was Rufus second strategy and...

That big cannon's pointed due north...... You think the target's......Sephiroth?

After the barrier at Northern Crater goes down

Hey, listen to me! I heard the barrier protecting Sephiroth is gone!

But with Rufus dead, the Shinra troops don't know what to do Heidegger and Scarlet don't have what it takes to lead the troops......

I really thought something was finally going to get done, but everything's the same... not a damn thing's changed!

Talk to the guy with yellow cap

Ah, youth... You really believe that big meteor filling up the sky's going to fall here?

Talk to the guy with yellow cap again

Before defeating Proud Clod and Hojo

If that's the case then all we can do is put our hope in Shinra, Inc.

After defeating Proud Clod and Hojo

If Shinra, Inc was our last hope, and they've been beaten by terrorists...... Are we all going to die?

Talk to the girl with brown hair

Even if Meteor falls, If you're in Midgar, you ought to be safe.

They say it's a "Mako Metropolis" so they should survive somehow......

Talk to the guy with black hair

Before the Shinra rocket hits Meteor

I want you to stop that talk about a Meteor falling on us!

After the Shinra rocket hits Meteor, before the barrier at Northern Crater goes down

Sephiroth put up a huge barrier around the North Crater.

Rufus wants to use a mammoth cannon to smash the barrier.

He plans to have Shinra troops rush in and attack Sephiroth after the barrier falls.

After the barrier at Northern Crater goes down

The North Crater barrier's been demolished?

So now's the time to defeat Sephiroth.

Talk to the woman in purple

Before she walks away from the meter??

What're you doing checking the pressure of the Mako energy at a time like this? It's probably already too late......

It's times like this when you shouldn't go into a tail spin. You've got to continue to live orderly just like before.

At least that's what I think...

After she walks away from the meter

The meteor's going to fall, isn't it? Unless Shinra does something about it, then we're all history!

Talk to the kid in the tunnel

My dad still just sits at the bar drinking, even though he knows that Meteor's coming!

It's sad. Even though he's an adult, he just doesn't want to see the world as it really is. I dunno what to do.

Stay?

Move on

After Meteor is summoned

One night, 300 gil. Wanna check in?

No

Have Red XIII and the person you want to date in your party, and pick the answer they like.

Thanks to Mako energy, life's pretty darn convenient. Thanks to Shinra.

Don't you think?

Yeah, maybe

See!? How would we get by without Mako energy?

You're full of it

Aeris/Tifa/Barret like this answer

Hmmn. But I'd hate to think of what life'd be like without Mako energy.

Talk to the girl again

Yeah, Mako energy's made our lives much easier. And it's all thanks to Shinra, Inc.

After Meteor is summoned, before defeating Proud Clod and Hojo

They say the meteor is going to fall, but it's okay! I'm sure Shinra will come through for us in the end and do something!

After defeating Proud Clod and Hojo

Dear, can you believe it!? They say that Shinra's gone under!!

This world is coming to an end all because those terrorists called AVALANCHE stuck their noses in the wrong place!

They say Midgar's in the middle of a war between the Shinra and a bunch of terrorists called AVALANCHE.

Mako energy's made things a lot more convenient......

But seems like a lot of plants and animals have been disappearing at a rapid pace.

I think the old life was better.

Don't you think so?

Yeah, maybe

Aeris/Tifa/Barret like this answer

Yeah, sure I'm right! You think so, don't you?

No way

Did you say you came from Midgar?

I used to live there, too. But I hear they got lots of troubles lately.

After Meteor is summoned, before the barrier at Northern Crater goes down

Everyone at Shinra's in an uproar because they heard Weapon's coming.

I heard a big hydroplane carrying secret weapons, got attacked by Weapon and was sunk at sea......

After the barrier at Northern Crater goes down

If something ever happened to President Rufus, That'd be the end of Shinra, Inc...... and the rest of the world, too.

Why doesn't anyone believe me? I'm all alone...

After Meteor is summoned

Oh man, oh man!

A meteor's gonna fall on us, and now there's some big huge monster the likes of which I've never seen just wandering around out there!

Before Meteor is summoned

Is it true that Shinra made a Monster?

It's true

Just a rumor

Yeah, well either way, as long as we're using the reactor, we can't stand up to Shinra.

After Meteor is summoned

The meteor's coming, right? Where am I going to stash my money...? Wait, maybe I'd better take it with me and get out of here!

There sure have been a lot of dangerous accidents recently. I hate it, just hate it.

Talk to the guy sitting on the right

Me? I used to work in a coal mine down south called Mythril Mine

But, right around then, monsters started appearing.

After that, business went to pot and now I spend the days here drinking.

Talk to the guy sitting on the right again

Urrrp! ...hic... I'm stinking drunk!!

Talk to the bartender

It seems there was this group called AVALANCHE runnin' around, but I guess they finally got wiped out by SOLDIER.

Talk to the bartender again

Shinra is trying to eliminate anyone, who stands up to them.

It don't matter if we like it or not. Shinra's taken over, and we gotta live with it!

After Meteor is summoned

Talk to the guy sitting on the right

Listen, I've worked hard till now... and you say Meteor's gonna smash everything to bits?

Well, I ain't standin' around listenin' to fool talk like this. Makes a person lose the will to work, that's what it does!

Talk to the guy sitting on the right again

What're ya, dense? Something like that'll never happen! It's ridiculous!

Before defeating Proud Clod and Hojo

Talk to the guy sitting on the left

And all of Midgar's gonna be destroyed by a falling meteor? Oh, don't make me laugh!

Lately, there's been a number of scary incidents. I hate it. Just hate it!

I heard Shinra's taking all its biggest artillery from Junon and its various other facilities and gathering it in Midgar to fight the meteor and Weapon.

Talk to the bartender again

What's going to happen to the world...?

I got my health, and enough to eat... all's well.

After Meteor is summoned

If he hasn't asked you to look for items, or if you don't have anything to trade

The world's changed a lot in the past few days......

That huge monster Meteor was covering up the sky and acting like he owned it or something...

A lot of my friends have died......

I'm goin' on a journey to pray for their souls.

A map that was sunk along with the ship. ........."Guidebook" A rose that blooms once every 1000 years in the desert. ........."Desert Rose" A harp that soothes those who hear it. ........."Earth Harp"
