In Chapter 8 (Core) of Celeste, shortly after talking with the old woman, you encounter a blue gate with 4 hearts on it.

How do I open the blue gate in Chapter 8?

Blue gate with 4 hearts


That gate has 4 empty heart images, which means you have to collect 4 Crystal Hearts to open it.

There is a blue Crystal Heart hidden somewhere in each of the previous levels, and another red heart at the end of each B-side level, for a total of 14. If you collect any 4 of those, the gate will open.

  • @AlexKChen You could find the ones in the levels instead. – JMac Feb 18 '18 at 22:06
  • If you include the Core, there are technically 24 Crystal Hearts. 8 red hearts, 8 blue hearts (B-Side), 8 yellow hearts (C-Side). (See Celeste Collectables) – Stevoisiak Feb 24 '18 at 20:39

    I was specifically referring to the crystal hearts that are possible to obtain before entering the Core. Obviously, they can't access the one in the core, or in the core B-side, and without being able to access all of the B-sides, they can't access any of the C-sides. That leaves 14 available crystal hearts. – murgatroid99 Feb 24 '18 at 20:45
