This 144 page guide book splits most of its information in an area-by-area way, allowing the reader to follow it through without excessive page flipping. Maps are provided for each area and each room is numbered in the order they recommend you visit them in. These room numbers also correspond to a list on the opposite page that shows which enemies will be encountered as well as what treasures lie within (and any special requirements needed to get them). The guide then details enemy stats, any particular sticking points within that area and finally boss information and strategies.
After this walkthrough section are complete details on every weapon, armour, and item in the game as well as skill, magic, and guardian tables and a complete guide to every box puzzle in the game.
The book also includes a brief history of the Xanadu series and a wide selection of illustrations and sketches for character and monsters – some of which are unused. The guide is then rounded off with a short rough guide to the bonus download dungeon and the secrets it contains.
