Upgrading the Shinobi Prosthetic
In order to upgrade the Shinobi Prosthetic, you must find and collect upgrades out in the world. These upgrades are items which, when found, allow you to add new abilities to your Shinobi Prosthetic. Once you do have an upgrade, return to the Dilapidated Temple and speak with the Sculptor.
You will talk about finding a new upgrade and he will tell you what it does. Once you’re done speaking select Present Shinobi Prosthetic > Fit New Prosthetic Tool. Once the upgrade is complete, you will have a new ability. To purchase upgrades you will need to have Spirit Emblems which can be purchased at Sculptor’s Idols or found off of enemies.
