Beating the game on any difficulty setting unlocks a new
option on the title screen that says "Extra Costume". When you choose this
option you are brought to a screen that looks like a keyboard, where you can
enter secret passwords in order to unlock new fashions for Heather to wear.
There are separate sets of keys for upper and lowercase letters, as well as
numbers and symbols. Passwords are case sensitive, which means that you should
enter them EXACTLY as they are presented, and that a "B" is different from a
"b", and that spaces in words matter. Once you have entered the code, press
the red "Enter" button on the right of the keyboard to enter the code. If you
type in a password and unlock a costume, then immediately start a new game,
Heather will be wearing that costume as the game starts, even in the cutscenes.
Otherwise, the costume has to be equipped in the inventory screen.
Costume passwords are obtained in a number of ways. Some are special
promotional passwords that you can only get from certain websites, magazines,
or strategy guides. Others are unlocked by meeting certain criteria in the
game. At least one is obtained by trying to solve a ridiculously difficult
riddle in an Extra New Game. Below is a list of each costume I know of, and
how to get it or where the code came from. The words before the colon is the
costume's name, the password to obtain it is in the parentheses after the name,
and the description of where the password comes from is after the colon.
Transform Costume (PrincessHeart): This wacky costume comes from a
long-standing Japanese tradition of putting spunky young girls into sailor's
costumes and turning them into superheroes. This one comes complete with a
crazy transformation sequence every time you un-equip it and then re-equip it.
In addition to looking snazzy, this costume also has a practical use of
changing the Heather Beam into the more powerful Sexy Beam. To obtain this
costume you must simply complete an Extra New Game. The password will be
displayed on the results screen.
Heather Shirt (HappyBirthDay): This is apparently a copy a shirt worn
by the creative team during interviews. This shirt is very easy to obtain,
because you get the code to unlock it in the Results screen after you beat the
game for the first time.
Don't Touch Shirt (TOUCH_MY_HEART): Touch her heart? Don't mind if I
do! Unless she means literally: that would just be icky. During an Extra New
Game, search the Women's Locker Room on the second floor of Brookhaven Hospital
for a magazine on a bench. Examine the magazine and the code for this shirt is
Block Head Shirt (PutHere2FeelJoy): This is a special shirt awarded to
pacifists. If you can get through an entire game and only kill 10 or fewer
enemies, the code for this shirt will be displayed on your Results screen.
Remember that boss enemies are people too, and count towards your 10-monster
total. Since there are 5 bosses, this means you can only kill 5 other critters
in the entire game. Serial killers need not apply.
God of Thunder Shirt (GangsterGirl): That isn't Thor, so it must be
Raiden, Japanese god o' Thunder. This is one of my favorite costumes in the
game, because it turns Heather into a pale, blue-haired Goth girl. You get the
code for this costume in your Results Screen after completing a game on the
Extreme X action setting.
Transience Shirt (ShogyouMujou): I found the password interesting, so I
looked up the meaning of Shogyoumujou. Fittingly enough it is a Japanese
Buddhist phrase, meaning the impermanence of a thing. I say fittingly enough
because this costume is obtained by clearing all three Riddle Levels (Easy,
Medium, and Hard). The password will show up on your Results screen after
clearing the last one. And after some of those damn Hard puzzles, you will
feel you have earned it. Unless you just copied it from here, that is.
Golden Cock Shirt (cockadoodledoo): It is actually called the Golden
Rooster shirt, but the other was funnier. This shirt is a bitch to obtain,
unless you just use this code. To get the password, you must get a perfect
ranking, which takes a ridiculous amount of time and effort just to get a shirt
with a damn chicken on it (well, it actually makes the Flamethrower and the
Beam Saber exceptionally powerful, but I felt like whining). The password will
be displayed on the results screen.
Royal Flush Shirt (01_03_08_11_12): I have got to be honest with you:
this is the one shirt I haven't seen, because I refuse to use the password
until I figure it out for myself. In order to even begin to get the password,
you must complete an Extra New Game, and then start the next game using the
Hard Riddle Mode. Continue as normal until you reach the Archives/Library in
the Church at the end of the game. This time through, there are clues
scattered throughout the books. These clues are supposed to help you figure
out the password. Here they are:
-Clue 1 - "A secret told before you awake: the start of a new transformation."
-Clue 2 - "There's no separating numbers from beginning to end."
-Clue 3 - "14 buttons all told; therefore, one is always two."
-Clue 4 - "The first number is 'the traveler to St. Ives.'"
-Clue 5 - "The second number is 'the hare wears a crown of straw.'"
-Clue 6 - "The third number is 'king of beasts and goddess of harvests.'"
-Clue 7 - "The fourth number is 'representative of both knight and page.'"
-Clue 8 - "The fifth number is 'lapis lazuli or turquoise.'"
I have figured out several of these on my own, but I am not going to post any
of them until I have figured out all of them. Hare wearing a straw hat? What
the hell are these people smoking?
Killer Rabbit Shirt (BlueRobbieWin): This shirt depicts everyone's
favorite blood-soaked mascot, Robbie the Rabbit! The password was obtained
from the Brady Game's Official Silent Hill 3 Strategy Guide, and was exclusive
to that guide until it was released onto the net.
Onsen Shirt (I_Love_You): Onsen is a Japanese word that means hot
springs. What this shirt represents, whether it be hot springs in general or a
specific hot spring, is currently unknown. The password was obtained from the
Brady Game's Official Silent Hill 3 Strategy Guide, who said it was an
exclusive, but others claim it originally came from the Japanese industry
Zipper Shirt (Shut_your_mouth): The password for this interesting
shirt was exclusive to the Brady Game's Official Silent Hill 3 Strategy Guide.
If only it were a real zipper...
The Light Shirt (LightToFuture): This shirt is incredibly cool and
should be recognizable to fans of the original Silent Hill. It is a
reproduction of a painting that was the key to a puzzle in Alchemilia Hospital,
called "The Light Illuminating the Darkness". The password was obtained from a
cool interactive website called SH2003.com. As of the time of this writing the
English Language version is unavailable (because it is a Japanese website, but
I want a website that interesting in English, dammit), but the password was
obtained in room 308.
EGM Shirt (EGMpretaporter): This is a shirt promoting the American
gaming magazine Electronic Gaming Monthly. The code was obtained from their
magazine (pr?t-a-porter means "ready to wear" in French, for thems of you who
GamePro Shirt (ProTip): This is another U.S. gaming magazine, and the
password comes from the pages therein.
PSM Shirt (badical): PSM stands for Play Station Magazine. This is
one of the few U.S. gaming magazines that is still independent. It is not the
OFFICIAL Playstation magazine, but that just makes them rebels. The password
came from their magazine. It was better than their second choice, "tubular".
Game Informer Shirt (Gameinformer): Game Informer is yet another U.S.
game magazine, who also has a website. Their
exceptionally clever password came from the magazine.
Official PS Magazine Shirt (SH3_OpiuM): This is the Official
Playstation Magazine's shirt; accept no substitutes. This is Sony's Official
U.S. game magazine, and every month it comes with a bonus disk with viewable
and playable demos. Pretty cool. The password came from the magazine. The
password isn't promoting the use of Opium or its byproducts; it is simply a
clever play on the magazines acronym, OPM. Get it?
OPS2 Shirt (extra_thumbs): Now don't get confused, but this is also
the Official Playstation Magazine, but this one is from the U.K. I'm not
British, believe it or not, so I can't tell you too much about this one. The
password came from the magazine.
PS2RO Shirt (MATADOR): Another Official Playstation Magazine, this one
from Spain. I am not Spanish either, senior. The password-o came from the
Play Shirt (sLmLdGhSmKfBfH): This is a German gaming magazine called
(wait for it) Play. I do not schprecen ze Deutch either, though I am sure you
can't tell. They also have a website. The password
came from there.
GameSpy.com Shirt (iaml33t): This is a popular U.S. videogame website
. The password was obtained from their website. "iaml33t" is
written in an informal gamer's dialect that some call "leetspeak": letters in
words are changed around, omitted, or misspelled, and numbers take the place of
similar looking letters. For example, "l33t" means "Elite" (the 3s took the
place of the "e"s, because they look kind of like backwards capital "E"s. It
would take a book to explain the whole damn thing. Used by l33t m4zt3rz and
retarded 12 year olds everywhere.
IGN.COM Shirt (IGN_pickleboy): IGN is another popular U.S. gaming
website. IGN stands for Internet Gaming Network, I think; they seem to just go
by IGN now. The pickleboy is one of their mascots. The password came from
13eme Rue Shirt (Suspense): 13eme (Treizi?me) Rue is French for
"Thirteenth Street", and is also a French horror television network (which I
really wish we had over here in the U.S., though not in French: I can still
read the language very well, but my verbal comprehension is about the same
level as a bright chimp). The code could be obtained on their website or by
watching the channel itself. If you can read French, have Euro dollars, and
want a 13eme Rue shirt of your very own, you can buy them at their website.
Game Reactor Shirt (SH3_Wrestlarn): Game Reactor is a popular gaming
website in Europe. The site isn't in English, but it
isn't too hard to navigate. The password came from their website.
GMR Shirt (GMRownzjoo): GMR stands for German Monkey Review.
Actually, it probably doesn't, but I can't seem to figure out what it actually
is. I assume a gaming... thing... of some sort. I obtained their password
from gamefaqs.com. For those who are interested, the last part of the password
is also "l33t" speak. "Ownzjoo" means "owns you" in monkey. For those of you
who weren't interested, don't read that last sentence. Or this one.
GN Shirt (IwannabeaGJ): This is a shirt for the U.S. Gaming Network,
who hired a bunch of non-gaming pretty boys to pretend to be gamers and act
like jackasses on television. Actually, that is what the "GJ" in the password
stands for: "Gaming Jackasses". Or maybe not. They also show about 4 programs
over and over again. Kind of like MTV. But at least it is a start in the right
direction. The password was aired between and during their 4 shows.
