Yeah I know, I'm saying that since I definitely wont get it, but this guy DID get it, how much time can I expect to immediately shave off of his playthrough, simply because I don't have to watch that ending?

Got the platinum thanks to your awesome video guide! Definitely the best one to follow. I was a little worried before starting my "Castle Guide" playthrough but soon I realized it was not that hard. My time was 1:50:12. I skipped the lightning sword and the "watermelon ending".
Thanks mate

The watermelon doesn't add much time, 1 minute, probably much less.

If you are 3~4 minutes behind, as you say, I don't think you can shave it off just skiping the Spiked Club and Watermelon ending.

Thanks for this, it was very useful. Had to play through some sections a few times because the shadows got Yorda too much or she didn't climb a ladder properly, stupid Yorda. Game would take about an hour if Yorda wasn't involved and you had queen's sword from the start to open the doors.

You can still easily get the Shining Sword Trophy if you're behind on time, although you won't have the sword itself for the rest of the playthrough.

Skip it at first, then save after the waterwheel, when you've gone back into the waterfall room and over the bridge. Saving the game is important! Now go back up to the waterwheel the way you just came, get the Shining Sword and return to the waterfall to trigger the Trophy.

Quit and reload the save, and carry on with the speed run. You won't have the sword to play with, but from this point on there's very little combat: mostly you can run past the shadows, or just knock them back once to keep running. Very occasionally (such as in the West Arena and on the lift up to the Water Tower) you'll be forced to defeat one or two shadows, but your sword is good enough. After the Main Gate you lose your weapon anyway.

That's a good video, but I think you should show what was the fastest way to do some areas (or at least add a note) instead of showing you fail. For example, the area with the sewer, you lost a lot of time because you left Yorda at the wrong place (not below the platform) and had to fight the shadow creatures.

It's all good to show that you don't have to be perfect, but to those who don't know the "proper" way, they are stuck with your time frame because they just don't know better.

It's a great video with excelent quality, though.

Thanks alot for the video guide, it was truly helpful. Though those damn pesky shadows seemed to love my Yorda way more than yours

Thanks a lot Gcrock! I just got my platinum last night. I did it on my 3rd playthroguh so I didn't need the shining sword or watermelon. I used the extra time to save a lot more often. That definitely helped keep the frustration down. The most annoying part was trying to get Yorda to climb the ladder and keep from getting snatched in the West arena area where you both stand on the round area to raise the stairs.

Saved at last main gate at 1:21:30 and finished with 1:54:30.
