This walkthrough is a supplement to the full Trophy Guide which can be found here: LINK.

 

This guide will aid you in getting the Platinum as quickly as possible. You'll be looking at just about the one hour mark while following this. Along with the weapons and Newspaper Clippings, the locations of the clues for the three key codes needed for the three locked doors in the game are also provided.

 

If you do not wish to use this in full and are referencing it because you got stuck somewhere, please see the links just below to each individual chapter so you can pass by any spoilers/story related content.

 

If you prefer to use a video walkthrough, one has been provided at the very start of Stage 1.

 

Any non-trophy related item that you need to pick up will be marked in ORANGE.

Any trophy-related item you need to pick up will be marked in BLUE.

The clues/key codes you will need will be marked in RED.

The recommended times for you to save will be marked in GREEN.

 

There is no Sprint button so the only buttons you need to worry about are :cross: to interact/use item and :triangle: to open your inventory.

 

Whenever you pick up a weapon, it will be empty so make sure you try to fire one shot to reload it before progressing.

  • This ending section has a lot of dialogue to get through. If it doesn't seem to be moving/going, move around and explore the area a little bit to trigger it. Fair warning that there are still enemies roaming around here so try not to go too crazy with your exploring. Overall it'll take a few minutes to get through the entire message
  • (G) You've came back there
  • (P) You did everything you possibly could

Thanks for the super helpful guides Velvet!

 

The text guide was confusing at some parts so I used the video guide to clear up confusion. There are some papers/pages that could have been skipped to make the game quicker. It's still a great guide to use!

 

Thanks ^-^ I skipped the notes that were for sure out of the way/not necessary, but I know in the "real ending" sequence, you can probably skip almost all those notes, but they're just in the middle of the pathway so I left them in =]

 

For the the confusing part, was it directional confusion or..? Just need to know so I can alter the text to make it more clear to follow =]

The part where you are turning off the valves threw me off. Then the house section was tricky. I guess you could say directional or maybe it just wasn't detailed yet.

I can add images to the valve section (as it'll help break up the text a bit as well) and to the house section - definitely know exactly what you're talking about as trying to explain it all in text was... yeah. Lol. I'll get some changes done and hopefully it'll fix any future issues anyone else might have ^-^ Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks for the walkthrough!

 

I don't know if it's a version difference or something, but when I played the EU version, I had to check the phone message at the end of the second playthrough, wait for the credits to roll, and get kicked back to the title screen before the final two trophies unlocked. You may want to make a note of that in your walkthrough. :)

Same for me on EU Vita.

Great and very clear text guide.

I did find unmentioned bullets on the floor in the following area:

Leap/Jump down. A small cutscene with new enemies will play. Kill the 3 enemies.

Hug the bottom/right and very close to where you jumped down, you'll find a Briefcase on a console. Interact with the Briefcase and pickup a Key

 

Past the woman at the beginning of stage 4, there are painkillers on the floor behind the stairs.

There is an instruction missing in stage 3. between the two lines below it should say to go up the ladder

 

- Head to the Computer in the back and SAVE

 

- Follow the path all the way to the left (ignore all intersections) until you reach the very end, with a prompt to "leap" but don't do so yet

 

Other than that a perfect guide
