  5. Bad/Alternate Ending

    To get the bad/alternate ending, you must play the game up until June 31st, 1987. At the end of this day Ryo will get into bed and it will occur. A good way to quickly get it is to keep failing the QTE at Zhangyu Barber's.

  7. Own a duck to use in duck races

    After the cutscenes when you've finished catching leaves at the temple for the first time, go back and try it again.
    If you catch 4 leaves all together (not in a row but actually all at the same time), you will hear a 'quack' and a feather will drop from the tree. Catch it (be ready because it's fast!) and Ryo will notice a duck in the tree.
    Choose 'catch' from the selections that appear and then watch a funny (if not incomplete) cutscene.
    The duck will then be yours for use in the duck races.
