Combat Training (subtitled "Module 1-A") takes place in TCTF HQ and marks the start of the game.


Konoko goes through some basic training (as a tutorial for the player). She receives messages via a neural link with Shinatama, an SLD at the TCTF.

Added Value

It's been suggested that this combat training program is actually in virtual reality. There's no direct mention of this, but consider these points:

  1. How did Konoko get into that first room? The training complex is an enclosed space. For a game that takes architecture so seriously, it's odd that they'd leave out a door for entering the level.
  2. Konoko advances through a couple rooms, and suddenly Karen is in the first room with two training droids. Man, that door must be really well hidden....
  3. The biggest eyebrow-raiser is when Shinatama openly materializes weapons and ammo onto the desk in the last room (accompanied by a unique particle effect).

So either (a) the Oni devs were really lazy when designing this level and didn't care about where people and weapons came from, (b) scientists have invented transporters by 2032 and this is the only place we see them used, or (c) this is happening in Konoko's head via a cybernetic connection. As evidence for the third option, see the interview with Hardy where he mentions the concept of placing the training in a "virtual dojo – Matrix style".
