Sword Art Online: Lost Song is the sequel to the game Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment. This series is based on the anime and light novel but knowledge of the series prior to this game is not required to understand the story. Lost Song overall has a much quicker and easier than Hollow Fragment. Much less grinding is needed and nothing is missable. Credit to Aeirou for some of the info contained in this Guide.
NOTE: This guide is based on the localized version of the game for PS4. While the Asia region version has English subtitles, the translation is slightly different in that version compared to the localized version. Therefore, some names of quests, equipment and attacks may be different.
Step 1: Complete the main story on Easy difficulty while levelling up any one Sword Skill, Magic Skill, or Special Skill to Level 500.
In this step, just casually play through the main story while completing any side quests you run into. Also, make sure to stick to using only one Sword Skill, Magic Skill, or Special Skill. You will need to level this skill up to Level 500, so it’s best to start early. Don’t worry too much about buffs or advantage of elements because the game is already easy enough. To make things even easier, you can play the game on Easy as difficulty does not affect trophies. Note that the difficulty is by default set to Normal and can only be changed at the main menu.
Make sure to also open any treasure chests you come across, as some of them will contain weapons or accessories which you will need for the “Weapon Collector” and “Accessory Collector” trophies.
Try to complete all of the heroines' side stories while you’re at it. See the respective A Deeper Bond trophies for more information on this. Also, drop by the weapon shop every now and then to complete festival events for the Ki-bo's a Playah trophy.
If you followed this step carefully, you will have the following trophies at the end of this step:

Step 2: Complete 100 side quests, 100 Extra Quests, any remaining character events and level up skills.
In this step, you will want to complete any remaining character events for the A Deeper Bond trophies and the Ki-bo's a Playah trophy. Most of the grinding will be done in this step as well. First, you will want to recruit Sumeragi for the A Worthy Rival trophy, which you can then use to finish off any remaining grinding. Next, complete the requirements for the Sword of Kings trophy. At the end of this step, you will have the following trophies:
Ki-bo's a Playah
A Deeper Bond: Lisbeth
A Deeper Bond: Asuna
Sword of Kings
Step 3: Clean up.
In this step, clean up any trophies you might have missed. Don't worry if you missed any character events, as all of them will reappear post-game. At the end of this step, you will have the following trophies:
