How to get to the Shadow Lord’s Castle in Nier Replicant
After getting all four fragments in the second half of the game, the protagonist and his loyal group will finally be ready to break into the Shadow Lord’s Castle atop the Lost Temple. And once you’re in the courtyard, there will be double doors in front of you, and once you pass through those doors, you’ll be back in the same courtyard and stuck in a loop.

To break this loop, you need to talk to the pigeons in the center of the courtyard and answer three questions. The answers to these questions are as follows:
Q: Why did people disappear from the world?
A: Because of the black disease.
Q: How can people extend their lives?
A: By separating the body from the soul.
Q: What is the purpose of souls?
A: They are placed in their respective shells.
Answering all three questions correctly will allow you to pigeonhole yourself into the castle and move forward. That’s all you need to know about getting into the Shadow Lord’s Castle in Nier Replicant.
