How to unlock in The Teal Mask expansion DLC in-game
In order to access the Kitakami region, you must first complete the primary story arc known as Treasure Hunt, which should not take too much time to do. Along the way, you will become aware of plenty of intriguing components, all of which are beneficial upgrades to the game. When you have arrived at the place, Professor Jacq will contact you by Rotom. He will explain to you that you have been extended an invitation to visit the country of Kitakami.
So, after receiving the call, do not squander any more time and immediately proceed to the entry hall of the academy, which is where you will find Briar, the leader of your journey. After having a conversation with her, all you have to do is carry on with the conversation to be led inside Kitakami. The character is highly curious. Neat!
