AI: The Somnium Files – Nirvana Initiative – Balloon Note Puzzle Solution

Here’s what the pieces of paper say:

1 HO ST

2 UN RA

3 IN DG

This puzzle’s answer is similar to the one in Mizuki Chapter 2 Park. You should have no issue reusing the intersecting arrows to reach the correct conclusion if you remember the Alfree puzzle. All you have to do now is diagonally match the words from one column to the other.

HO -> RA, IN -> ST and UN -> DG. If you combine them correctly, you will get HORA INST UNDG. It stands for Horadori Institute Underground and provides Mizuki with information on something that the game pretty much informed us during the Ryuki route.

That’s how to solve the Balloon Note Puzzle in AI: The Somnium Files – Nirvana Initiative.
