The sequel to the cult game Hyperdimension Neptunia is finally here! Instead of focusing on the console wars, this time the game focuses on the handheld wars.
This game requires two playthroughs, though the game is quite short, and there is New Game+, which carries over levels, Lily Ranks, and items from previous playthroughs. The reason for two playthroughs is that a certain secret boss does not appear until New Game+. The shares do reset, and you have to recruit everyone again. Also, the Chirper events are reset, and the skills related to them have to be reacquired. This time, you do not have to defeat all the monsters in the game, nor do you have to view all the events. There are seven different endings in the game. If you want to fill up the gallery, you will need to complete the game seven times, though it is not necessary for the platinum.
Shares are different in this game. Each individual city now has its own shares. To change the shares in each city, you must complete quests in the Guild or coliseum battles (the coliseum opens up in Chapter 5). Many quests are repeatable for share grinding. When you accept a quest, notice who is the sponsor and how will the shares change. The sponsor is the city whose shares will be affected upon completion of the quest. The global shares are based off the combined total of shares of every city on the world map.
Included in this game is Lily Rank. Upon completing Chirper events with certain playable characters, your Lily Rank with them increases. They also increase when you use the characters in battle. The Lily Rank has an effect on endings (except for the Conquest Ending). The highest rank is 5, indicated with a red blushing face. To check the Lily Ranks, go to Tomes in the Main Menu and select "Lily Rank".
Step 1: Play through the game, and get the Conquest Ending.
I recommend getting the Conquest Ending first since Lily Ranks do not matter (and they carry over in New Game+), and because it is the most tedious ending to get.
During this step, you will want to increase the shares in the cities of Leanbox, Lowee, and Lastation as high as possible (at least over 55%). In Chapter 2 or Chapter 3, once shares are high enough in the city, use the Chirper menu to talk to NPCs. Talk to Slayer in Lastation, Arfoire Mama in Lowee, and Mid-Level Explorer in Leanbox, to view events about rumors of a Demon Sword. Do not change the shares at this time. I recommend that you do the Chirper events with each character to raise their Lily Rank. While it's not necessary for this ending, they will help when you start a New Game+, since the Lily Ranks carry over.
In Chapter 5, once Neptune joins, go to each capital city and recruit Noire from Lastation, Blanc from Lowee, and Vert from Leanbox. Here, you will earn the trophies Vert's Return, Noire's Revenge, and Blanc's Vengeance. Once all three have been recruited, increase Planeptune's global shares (not just the city) to over 55%.
Once you complete Chapter 5, instead of going to Chapter 6, you will continue to "Apocalypse: The Savior's Sorrow". Finish the game, and you will earn the trophy The Blood of Many...
Step 2: New Game+
Once you complete the game, the game prompts you to save. Be sure to do so. From the title screen, choose "Continue", and load up the file that you just saved. You will start from the beginning of the game, but your levels, items, and Lily Ranks carry over. Continue playing the game normally until you reach Chapter 6. Make an extra save here, since from here we will branching out onto different endings, and DO NOT overwrite it!
Step 3: Get the other endings
From Chapter 6, you can get the other six endings in the game. Please refer to each trophy for more information on how to get each ending. At the end of this step, you should get Normal Ending, Human Ending, Planeptune Forever, Leanbox Lover, Lastation Training, Lowee's Readership, and Happily Ever After.
Step 4: Cleanup
Here, you can get any trophies that you have missing. Be sure to level up all of your characters, including the optional ones, to level 99 to get Freshly Grinded Girls, and defeat Delphinus in the Coliseum to get Delphinus Wrecked.
