VIII.  CREDITS & THANKS

I.  WELCOME

Welcome to my Kita e.  Photo Memories (KEPM) FAQ.  Following up on my 
Kita e. White Illumination (KEWI) FAQ, I decided to write this FAQ up to 
encourage others to play life simulations on the DC.  I've searched high 
and low for this game since its release, every import dealer in NYC 
didn't have it, all of the big online import dealers didn't have it, 
either.  Finally, I had to import this game directly from Japan. It really
is a rare jewel.

II.  BACKGROUND/STORY

KEPM was released for the Japanese Dreamcast (DC) 8/5/99, and retails 
for 3800 yen. It is played on 1 GD ROM disk and uses 20 Blocks of 
memory.  KEPM is a "sequel" to the  DC game Kita e.  White Illumination. 
(KEWI)  Its not really a sequel, but an Illustration Collection with 
mini adventure.  It could be classified as an OMAKE disk.  Its 
definitely worth every penny for the serious Kita e. Fan.

KEPM takes place six months after the White Illumination Countdown from 
KEWI.  You resume your role as yourself, and you "Kita e" to Hokkaido 
during your summer vacation  to visit with your girlfriend for five 
short days.  Your goal this time is to create a new Album of Photo 
Memories of your girlfriend.     

"The Illumination Countown was a half a year ago.  In order to make a 
new memories album,  I visit again.  To the North. . ."

III.  MAIN MENU

After Pressing the Start Button the following Menu Items are available

-MINI ADVENTURE:  This features the mini adventure game where you come 
back to Hokkaido and spend your summer vacation with your girlfriend.

during the mini adventure.  A maximum of 5 photo memories is allowed.

- Settei Shiryou:  This feature allows you to view the many different 
character poses used during the Mini Adventure, also includes character 
design sketches

further divided into

   includes Shioru/Tanya, Tanya, Shioru, Hayaka, Kozue, and Hayaka
   
   -Illustrations for White Illumination II = 2nd set of illustrations
   includes Ayu/Kotori, Megumi, Ayu/Kotori, Ayu, Kotori, Yuko, Kozue

VI.  MINI ADVENTURE & WALKTHROUGH

In this sequel you Kita e once again to see your loved one for 
only 5 days. You bring along your handy camera this time so 
you can have real Photo Memories.  You will visit a few locales 
with your desired partner.  During conversation you can take a 
picture, up to 5 pictures per game per girl.

You can take a picture almost at anytime, usually surprising the
girl if you just start snapping.  However, if you say the right thing,
she will become less camera shy and actually pose for you for a
great photo memory.  

There are however, some girls who pose more than 5 times so you
have to decide whether or not you want to use the picture, or wait. 
If she poses and you do not take a picture, it is funny hearing her 
ask you"what's wrong like is the shutter closed?", "what  are you 
waiting for?", etc.  I will give hints to which pictures I like and you 
might like better.  Also,  I find it fun to make fun of your date, then 
take a picture of her mad/surprised face.  

At the end of the little get away, your kanojo writes you a letter 
reminiscing about the good times.  The outcome is the same no 
matterwhat you say, but the beautiful posed shots are not available 
if the wrong phrase is said and the extra bonus photo in the  final 
memory,that is viewed under the Nocchi Gallery:  Photo Memories  
Section will not be available too. Also the ending letter will include 
extra bonus writings if you say the right words.

There is no CBS system here, the game prompts you to reply.  If you 
just snap a picture, the conversation runs out and the next scenario 
begins. The choices do change around so don't think that memorizing 
the positions of the answers is the right way to go.

If you follow this walkthrough you will get the good happy ending 
with all the available posed pictures and the final memory.  However, 
if you choose different answers, there can be some surprisingly amusing 
sequences of dialogues.  Check out Megumi and ask her about Hotels
...Oh boy she is Naiive :)
