Introduction:

Anima: Gate of Memories - The Nameless Chronicles is a Kickstarter game that was successfully funded. In the beginning it was named the Unleashed Book and was supposed to be a DLC to Anima: Gate of Memories but Anima Project Studio added so content content that it became too big and ended up as its own entity. Playing the original Gate of Memories isn't required for understanding the story but if you plan to, then I recommend you to play the original Anima first and The Nameless Chronicles second because they have spoilers related to the first part.

Overall, Anima Gate of Memories is a decent Action RPG with smooth controls and fun combat. Do note that the combat is fast paced but your character have invulnerability dodge and can use charge attack to instantly move about 10 meters in a blink, though it means that there are cases when your action windows is below half second, as late game bosses will be also quite quick or spam barrages of attacks. If you want a challenge then Normal Mode is actually quite hard when you have to fight True Ending Boss and the Secret Boss but I don't recommend it.

New Game + is harder than your initial playthrough as opponents are tougher and your character do not progress much stat wise, from lv 12 to 16 there is not much growth and shops barely have new decent items so I strongly recommend to do the hardest trophies (i.e the True Ending and Secret boss) during your first playthrough. Here are some tips that might be of use:

  • Don't buy swords and artifacts from Velez, as most of items can be found and ones which are aren't required anyway.
  • The only exception from rule above is Zetsubou sword, which is available after The Great Merchant trophy, it costs 250k.
  • You can freely use items like life fragments and such as they can be purchased and cost stays the same.
  • Buff items, like War Core or Armor Core are almost essential if you play on normal.
  • Fragment of Death and Death Anima are extremely useful in the last boss fight, as Boss have stages where he is invulnerable to usual attacks so Thanathos mode has to be used and energy goes away faster than boss's life points.
  • Bring four Raw Materials to Bird Mask, as other options can be purchased from Velez.


Walkthrough:

Step 1: Complete the game with True Ending while collecting everything, including item from Bird Mask

Play the game normally, be sure to collect every item. Also be sure to not kill any non-hostile NPC as they are required for trophies. If you collected every item in pre-Arcane chapters, then you haven't missed anything and only point of no return you should worry about is third fight against The Bearer/Ergo, as you can accidentally choose the wrong option. Be sure to choose to continue living at this point, if you did so then you are free to finish all tasks before meeting the final boss. Collect everything, complete Erynes challenges, free bird Mask, craft The Sun Sword, get Nekrom Thanathos open secret room, defeat the secret boss, chat with Death at save point and then go to the ending.

At the end of this step, you will earn the following trophies:

End of the Begining
Nexus of Memories
Here is where he was born...
Demon Exterminator
Grand Maister
The Priest of the End
The Bearer of Calamities
The Red Lady
The One Left Behind

Master of Puppets
The Three Shadows
The Last Name
The Nameless Memory
The Ultimate Monster
Chatting with Death
The Secret Room
The Gate of Memories
Immortal Collector
Nothing ever truly ends
A Secret in Shadows...


Step 2: Complete the New Game Plus with Alternate ending

Play the game as usual, be sure to get the last Velez seal, and be careful to choose Tired option after third fight against The Bearer.

At the end of this step, you will earn the following trophies:

The Great Merchant
Ultimate Power
I am so tired...
A second time in life


Step 3: Clean up

Finish the Grand Maister challenges, collect all items and craft an item from Gaudemus, if required.

At the end of this step, you will earn the following trophy:

    • Raw Material
  • Defeat the Secret Boss

    MISSABLE

    To defeat the Secret Boss you have to open the Inner Halls of Arcane (Secret Room trophy) and open the central passage after collecting all five Nameless Memories. Creature on the throne inside will give you quest to find five of its' friends and provide location to them, which I will post below for ease:

    Demon Bird Mask: Laberyntos
    Shaman Mask: Exterior Wall
    Knight Mask: Mansion Basement
    Strange Mask: Outskirts of the Village
    Cat Mask: Etheldrea's Mansion

    After you talk with all five, creature will ask you to kill it so attack it until it is out of life points, boss fight will start after that. I should point that boss fight is quite tough, thus I recommend doing it as late as possible so you have the best gear and maximum level obtainable. Also better do it on your first playthrough, as on New Game Plus I'd give this fight difficulty is 10/10.

  • Reach Level 16

    You will reach Level 16 through normal play, during your New Game Plus playthrough so there's no need to grind this out.

  • Get the rank of Grand Maister in the Cathedral of Erynes.

    In the Cathedral of Erynes you will need to activate four statues and complete the combat challenges it provides. The Fourth statue lacks a sword so before activating it, you have to purchase the sword from Velez (it will be in stock after you find at least one Velez Seal).

  • Finish all possible conversations with Death.

    MISSABLE

    When you save your game at the sarcophagus (Nexus location, lantern icon) Nameless will chat with Death for a bit. Most of dialogues are available at the beginning, with additional line added after second fight with Bearer and Ergo, reaching Fishing Village and third fight with Bearer and Ergo. This trophy is unobtainable if you are going for the Tired ending.

  • Find all the fragments of Velez’s Soul.

    MISSABLE

    You need to collect three Velez Seals to reach this trophy. For the location of the two seals, see Immortal Collector. The third Seal is a NG+ exclusive but will be in plain sight at the Nexus location.

  • Obtain the Thanathos Nekrom

    To obtain the Thanathos Nekrom you need to finish all four challenge rooms in the Hall of the Lost Names. Completing three is required for the story so completing the last one won't take much time. After you complete all of them, a door will unlock in the same location and have a sword inside so go and grab it.

  • Unlock the access to the Inner Halls of Arcane.

    You have to purchase the key from Velez, it will be in stock after you find at least one Velez Seal. After that, unlock the locked door in the Portals Hall then the trophy will pop.

  • Free the prisoner from his prison.

    MISSABLE

    In the Mansion Basement location there is a Bird Mask prisoner in the cell. Find the key for his cell in the Workshop location behind the shelf (same room as Memory) and use it to unlock the cell.

  • Make Gaudemus create something for you.

    MISSABLE

    During your playthrough you will find Raw Material items (see above in the Immortal Collector). There are total four of them, you may bring them to the Bird Mask after you free him and he will craft something for you. Be warned though because he can only craft once and the more Raw Material you bring him, the better item will be so I recommend not rushing this trophy and bring three or four (great ranged attack sword) Materia to him.

  • Defeat Druaga.

    Story Related, cannot be missed.

    In the Cathedral of Erynes Central Chamber location you will find big door with Sun Seal on it, which some is knocking in from other side. Approach the door, interact with it and deactivate the Seal. You have to fight Druaga but the trophy will pop once you defeat it.

  • Defeat the three guardian shadows.

    Story Related, cannot be missed.

    After you collect all five Nameless Memories, return to the Fishing Village and try to enter the door where the red seal was. It will trigger the fight with the three guardian shadows and after defeating them, the trophy will pop.

  • Defeat Ergo and The Bearer in Erynes.

    Story Related, cannot be missed.

    After defeating Rametek, his Soul will be lying in the location but collecting it will trigger the boss fight with Ergo and The Bearer. You will receive the trophy after depleting one of their life bars.

  • Defeat Nascal the Puppetmaster.

    Story Related, cannot be missed.

    Nascal Mehirim, the Puppet Master is the final boss of the Mansion of Puppets location. To reach him, you need to collect his memories (they are not hidden, just explore the rooms) and after defeating him you will receive the trophy.

  • Defeat Red Lady

    Story Related, cannot be missed.

    Lady will be waiting for you at the Central Body location of the Mansion of Puppets after you activate several switches located in other locations. It is hardly a boss fight but you will receive trophy as soon as she flees anyway.

  • Defeat Rametek

    Rametek, The Priest of The End is the final boss of the Cathedral of Erynes location.

The trophy will pop after defeating him.

  • Help the Priest of Erynes.

    Story Related, cannot be missed.

    In the Inner Chamber location you will see the door with a red seal, reach it and chat with person behind it. To open it you need to reach Garden location, complete one combat challenge there (activate statue for challenge) and return with a key. The trophy will pop after opening the door.

  • Reach Arcane.

    Story Related, cannot be missed.

    You will receive this trophy after first fight with Ergo and The Bearer. This battle is timed and you cannot win (even in NG+) due to the time limit so you can have fun or just avoid the fight until invisible timer ends and the trophy pops.

  • Finish the prologue.

    Story Related, cannot be missed.

    You will receive this trophy after defeating the Inquisitor trio at the Gate of the Divine Hand location. This fight isn't hard, even in NG+ so don't be scared by their numerical advantage.

 

Secret trophies

  • Defeat Ergo and The Bearer in the Nexus.

    Story Related, cannot be missed.

    After completing all three levels and defeating the bosses you will have their Souls. Using these Souls activate the pillars so the chains holding the Byblos (the book) will be broken. Interact with the book to trigger the boss fight. As in previous fight, you will receive the trophy after depleting one of their life bars.

  • Defeat the Shadow of the Nameless.

    Story Related, cannot be missed.

    Shadow of The Nameless is the final boss of the Fragments from Other Lives location. To reach him you need to collect his memories, (they are not hidden, just explore the rooms), defeat trio of Shadows (see The Three Shadows) and in the Hall of the Forgotten Names complete at least three challenge rooms. Each room completed will raise a platform across the chasm and at the other end of the chasm is the coffin so interact with it to remember the Nameless's first name, then return to the Beach of Memories and interact with the grave. You will receive trophy after you defeat the boss.
