A hidden mini map can be activated by a set of complex button combinations. First, you must have completed the Dog Ending. After you have completed the Dog Ending, make sure your controller type is set to 2 if you are playing on the international versions of the game. Finally, press the following buttons while you have control over your character: Start + L2 + Square + L3. You may need to first enter the inventory menu screen, exit, and while exiting hold Start button and then input the rest of the button sequence.


The mini map can also be activated via the following raw codes (02, 03, 04 values enable different versions of the map):

Unused Map

An unused version of the Brookhaven Hospital exists within the game. Most notably, this has no enemies or music. It also has various different camera angles compared to its used counterpart and a glitched box puzzle. This map was shown at the Tokyo Game Show 2001 and likely E3 Expo of that year. This map is internally named tgs_trial. Apply the below code for the USA Greatest Hits version of the game to appear here. Start from New Game or Load Game then hold R3 button while the screen is fading out to appear here.
