Welcome to Lost Sphear, created by the company Tokyo RPG Factory, also the creator of "I am Setsuna and published by Square Enix. The game involves you travelling the region of Gaiterra in search of the causes of the "Lost" phenomenon. You could call this game a "Nostalgic JRPG" As it's heavily based on the classic JRPGs with a top down view and text boxes for talking instead of in-game voices. If you have played "I Am Setsuna", then you should feel at home with this game. It shares a few features such as the Active Time Battle system and Skills called "Spiritnite"
The Platinum will be around 40-50 hours or so, which is fairly short for a JRPG. You can also speed up the game considerably as it features an option to skip all of the cutscenes by speeding it to x4 speed or even x16 speed so for somebody that wants the Platinum ASAP this is a God Send. There are no challenging or difficulty related trophies at all so you will be having no issues getting the Platinum, especially if you play on Easy.
Step 1: Play the Story and enjoy the Game
Since there are no difficulty related trophies in this game, use whatever difficulty you see fit. For the easiest time though, put it on Easy but you can also change it later on via the Config Menu if you so wish. On this step you will just be playing through the story from the start, you don't really have to worry about any of the misc trophies as most of them will come just from playing the game normally.
Trophies earned in this step:
Ruler of the Sea
Ruler of the Continent
Ruler of the Air
Restoring the Sea
Restoring the Kingdom
Return of Hope
The End of Tales
Step 2: Character Side Quests
Next up, you will want to focus on getting each Character's Side Quests completed, there is one for each character and you will get a Spiritnite (and the trophies) for unlocking their final skill. Each quest takes around 25 minutes to complete. You can start these side quests once you are in the final chapter of the game.
Trophies earned in this step:
Wisdom Beyond Time
War Maiden's Prayer
Pride of the Guardian
Step 3: Money Related Trophies, plus Beholder of All & Chowhound
For this step, you will want to start focusing on the Tycoon Trophy to get a total of 1,000,000G earned, see the trophy details for more information and one of the best locations on this. First thing you want to do is put the game difficulty to easy, as you will get more money from enemies. You want to make sure you do this before going for the Insatiable Shopper and Chowhound so you can make sure you will have enough money for these trophies. You can also get the Beholder of All trophy by scanning 300 enemies with the Scan feature.
Trophies Earned in this step:
Beholder of All
Step 4: Clean up and Platinum
Once you have all the main and side quests completed, you can start cleaning up the trophies you may have missed along the way. The trophy that you most likely wouldn't have been able to get by now is Vulcosuit Master so see that for more details. Once you have all the other trophies, Tale of Memories and the Moon will pop.
