Where to find all KK Investigation Notes in Ghostwire: Tokyo
Gather KK's investigation note collectables for a skill point boost, plus some extra lore!
Where can I find KK's investigation notes in Ghostwire: Tokyo? KK's investigation notes are a series of documents you can collect while exploring the world of Ghostwire: Tokyo. This spooky open world explore-a-thon was one of our favourite games of 2022 and has just hit Game Pass, so now's a great time to start hunting ghosts and collectables both!
Not only do KK's case notes make for interesting reading, there's a practical benefit to picking them up, too. Snagging one of these innocuous-looking documents nets Akito an instant 20 skill points — nothing to be sniffed at when upgrades on the skill tree get increasingly costly as you go on, and even levelling up only nets you 10 points at a time. To be absolutely clear, these aren't side missions: you don't need to do anything other than pick up the document to get the points, which makes them well worth seeking out by following our directions below.
