The mission takes place in New City, Soleanna. A horde of Iblis and Mephiles creatures have suddenly appeared and are invading the shopping district of New City. A frightened shop owner named Claudia gives Shadow the task of taking them all out.
This Town Mission is notoriously easy, as there are very few enemies and no time limit. The player should begin the mission by taking down the two Trickers waiting in the street ahead, then move into the enclosed square and deal with the four Iblis Worms that appear, followed by a Golem and three Iblis Biters. It is advised to use the Invincible Item Box near the beginning of the stage to help with the mission. The Town Mission will be cleared when every enemy has been destroyed.
