SAVE CORRUPTION WARNING: Currently. the latest patch of the game corrupts your System/Save File and messes up several game options like Sound, QuickSave/Load if you download and install the patch after you’ve started the game and created a System File on Vita (if similar problem occurs on PS4 version, please let me know). Either don’t download the update file (which is not advisable as it fixes a few minor problems) or download it before you start up the game for the first time.
Step 1 - Play through the game once and reach any of the endings, while utilizing save points
Steins;Gate 0 is a prequel/interquel/sequel (yeah, all of those apply if you know what Steins;Gate is all about) to the highly acclaimed original Steins;Gate Visual Novel and just like original game it’s also a pure Visual Novel, which means you will read a lot of text. Unlike the original, however, you don’t really need to pay any attention to messages you receive throughout the game as they have no impact on trophies this time (except two, which require you to reply to any one of them and ignore any one of them). Instead, which chapters you will read and which endings you will unlock is determined by your actions towards Amadeus System and whether you answer or ignore their calls.
Just like the previous game (and most VNs in general) you can set your Skip Text settings to All and skip all text to reach the platinum within a couple of hours using this walkthrough. If you don’t change any of your other settings game should quicksave at any point you receive a message, call or start a new chapter, which is quite useful especially if you want to complete the game and see all endings yourselves.
Play and enjoy the game at your own pace, this time around chapters are not numbered as the game is not as linear as the original, so don’t worry if you unlock a hidden trophy that is further down the line on your trophy list.
Step 2 - Complete the game with other endings, reach True Ending, read all TIPS, clean up
Once you complete the game once, you will unlock several bonuses under Extras, simply check all of those at least once to unlock their related trophies.
Either start over or load any of your saves where you receive a call from Amadeus and choose the opposite action (answer if you ignored before / ignore if you answered before) to reach other chapters/endings. Again, since the game structure is not linear this time around, you have to do this for each Amadeus call or consider using this walkthrough. Also be sure to reply to any of the RINE messages and ignore at least one of them to unlock 2 related trophies if you haven’t already.
To unlock True Ending route you must clear the game with “Promised Rinascimento” ending first.
When you complete the game with all endings, the only trophy you should have left is reading all TIPS. Simply read all of them (make sure none of them have “New” icon next to them) and you will unlock the trophy along with your platinum.
