Answers to questions from the ghost Horatio of Ni No Kuni the menace of the Ash Witch
Help to find the solution to the riddles of the ghost Horatio and unlock new spells for Oliver.
Playing at Ni No Kuni the Threat of the Ashen Witch sooner or later you will come across a strange ghost called Horatio (Horace in the English version) that appears at different points in the game world. Each time the ghost will challenge you with puzzles / riddles. By giving the correct answer Horatio will reward you with a new spell.
The difficulty lies in the fact that to answer the questions of the ghost no multiple choice answers are presented, but you are asked to type the correct answer directly, and this is where even the task of writing the guide becomes difficult.
Here we have played the English version of the game and I can confirm that the answers in the Anglo-Saxon language work. To avoid confusion, in the guide we provide the solutions of the riddles in English with the translation in Spanish alongside. If you have any requests or corrections to make to the answers please ask / contribute in the forum.
Before starting I remind you that giving the right answers to these questions will also help you unlock the Spell Master trophy.
Here is the list with the places where you can find Horatio, the questions, the answers to give and also some videos that show everything.
As already explained I have tested the answers in English in the English version of the game. Unfortunately we do not yet have all the answers in Spanish. Where available the answers in Spanish are highlighted in BLUE, otherwise only the answer in English is present. Also use videos to find out the right answer.
