Madness Prevails Trophy
Complete the Game on Nightmare Difficulty
We advise going for this on after you have beaten the game on easy or normal the first time around and using the glitch (located below) to get this trophy and any other trophy you might not have received yet. The key thing you need to do while going for this trophy is to always use the dodge button (). Doing that will make your body disappear for a short while, but let you dodge all attacks very quickly. Also in this playthrough, you should be able to use the Hysteria anytime you need it, unless you didn't get it on your first playthrough.
The game is fairly easy and can be breezed through without much effort if you have completed the game once before. If you plan to start the game on Nightmare on your first playthrough, I would advise looking into buying the DLC and using one of those Dresses to help aid you in this game. This trophy stacks with the lower difficultly trophies, so the platinum is obtainable in one playthrough.
Alternative Method: Do this if you played the game on a lower difficulty level, Obtained all the collectibles (Memories and Snouts) and want to cut out the second playthrough. Both Guide writers would like to thank the members from this thread for confirming this works: LINK
- First start a New Game+
- After the first save point (The Clock on the bottom right side is gone). Quit out to the main menu.
- Go to chapter select and pick the last section of that chapter. Beat it and let it roll you over to the next chapter. Let it save, and then quit to the main menu (The Beginning of the End should pop).
- Repeat step 3 for the next 5 chapters.
- In chapter 6 you do not have to fight the last boss. Just choose the last sub chapter in that chapter and walk to the end, The credits will pop and this trophy along with any other difficulty trophies you didn't get. This will also pop Level-Headed, if you didn't use it more than once.
