Kowloon Fortress

Kowloon Fortress is an optional level in the Asia half of Shadow Hearts. The player can unlock Kowloon Fortress by answering Dehuai‘s statements with Alice‘s first response. Kowloon Fortress is where Wugui comes from.

Plot Significance

Since Kowloon Fortress is an optional level, it holds no true significance to the plot. It is discovered that upon rescuing Wugui from Wuhan, Albert Simon rented space in Kowloon, and has been using Wugui’s body for experiments in Black Magic and Voodoo – effectively making Wugui into an obedient servant.
