Introduction:

Welcome to The Princess Guide. This is an Action RPG where you train and command 4 princesses and there are some strategy elements.

This game will take 8 playthroughs to platinum. You have to get every ending for each princess, plus each princess’s materia. Some materia can only be earned in the true route so you have to do a normal run and a true end run with each princess. Each princess has three endings but you can get all three endings in one run, as long as you don't raise the princess’s faith above level 3.

There is New Game+ in this game and most things do carry over, like items, unlocked and learned materia and squad members' levels. All princesses' stats start off at one again so if you accidentally raised a princess's faith above 3, you can do a New Game+ playthrough and start over.


Walkthrough:

Step 1: Earn all 3 endings with each princess and unlock 79/80 materia for each princess:

You are going to do four normal playthroughs in this step. Each princess has three endings: neutral, good and best. They are based off the faith stat. Having 3 faith and lower is the neutral ending. The Good ending is 4 faith and the best ending is 5 faith so make sure to never raise the faith above 3 before unlocking the neutral ending but don't raise it above 4 before unlocking the good ending.

While going through the playthrough, make sure to complete each side mission as they appear, since they unlock materia for completing them. Most side missions have a time limit on them but if you don't trigger them on time, you can just wait a few in-game hours and they'll reappear. Press to speed up time in the map screen. Side missions are missable so if you go too far in the game, you will miss them so check after each mission to see if any new ones unlock. Side missions are also repeatable so if you see the same one keep reappearing, you don’t have to do them again and there aren’t any more in that chapter.

The girl you select at the very beginning of the game isn’t important, since you have to train all 4 of them in the first half of the game. It's when you choose a princess a second time where you will be locked into that girl's route.

While doing the first half where you train all 4 princesses, I recommend not raising their faith above 2 so that you don't go to the true route. If all princesses' faith is 3 or higher, you will get a message that says "Do you want to gather the princesses once again?" Select "No" to continue the normal route with your selected princess.

After completing the neutral ending, after the credits and the epilogue, you are asked if you want to start over with the save or not. Choose "No" to continue playing just before the final mission so that you unlock some more side missions. Complete all side missions that appear, raise the faith to 4 and complete the game once again to earn the good ending. Choose "No" again and raise the faith to 5. You will want to learn as much materia as possible, because it might be possible to max out their stats in this playthrough but if you can't, there is the true end playthrough that's good for learning materia. Complete the game one final time and choose "Yes" to start over again.

Now you have to repeat all of the above for the other three princesses.

After this step, you will unlock the following trophies:

Liliartie Neutral Ending
Liliartie Good Ending
Liliartie Best Ending
Veronica Neutral Ending
Veronica Good Ending
Veronica Best Ending
Monomaria Neutral Ending
Monomaria Good Ending
Monomaria Best Ending
Alpana Neutral Ending
Alpana Good Ending
Alpana Best Ending
Dragon Slayer
Giant Conqueror
System Malfunction
Calamity Averted


Step 2: Get the true end with each princess and learn all 80 materia with each:

Now it's time to get the true end with each princess and you'll want to learn (not just unlock) all 80 materia for each one. When you do the first half of the game with each princess, make sure to raise their faith to 3. They have limited capacity so don't teach them just any materia. You will want to teach the materia that gives them the biggest faith boost. After their faith reaches 3, teach them the materia that gives you the most skill points. You will need 370 skill points to purchase all Instructor Skills upgrades for the trophy Apex Hero so the more skill points you unlock now, the better since after the first half of the game, you can only train one princess and it's possible to not have enough skill points at the end of the game.

After completing the first half, choose the princess with whom you want to learn all of her materia and when prompted "Do you want to gather the princesses once again?" Select "Yes" to continue to the true end.

You also want to max each princesses' attributes in each playthrough, as you have to learn each materia for each princess but to have enough capacity to teach every materia, you’ll have to complete the game and again, when asked if you want to start over, select "No". Once all of the princess's materia is learned, her attributes are maxed and you’ve bought all Instructor Skills upgrades, you can complete the game again so you can repeat the process again, until you’ve done the same with all four princesses (but you only need to buy all Instructor Skills once).

After this step, you’ll unlock the following trophies:

Liliartie - Radiant Blossom!
Veronica - Full Throttle!
Monomaria - Master of Technique!
Alpana - Complete Enlightenment!
Knower of Things
Armor Master
Apex Hero
A New Dawn!
Road to the Future
Instructor of the Four Princess Knights!!


Step 3: Clean-up:

If you've missed a trophy, you will have to do another playthrough. Refer to the Trophy Guide to see what you've missed.

26 trophies ( 15  2  )

  • Congratulations!

  • Max out all of Liliartie's Attributes.

    Missable!

    To earn this trophy, you'll have to max all of Liliartie's Attributes to 5. It's not necessarily to learn all materia but most of them have to be learned so it's best to leave this to the true end playthrough, because you will be learning them all in that playthrough. The game would have to be completed at least once in that playthrough so that you can have enough capacity. There is more than enough capacity to teach ever materia in the game so don't worry about teaching less useful materia.

  • Max out all of Veronica's Attributes.

    Missable!

    See Liliartie - Radiant Blossom! but with Veronica instead.

  • Max out all of Monomaria's Attributes.

    Missable!

    See Liliartie - Radiant Blossom! but with Monomaria instead.

  • Max out all of Alpana's Attributes.

    Missable!

    See Liliartie - Radiant Blossom! but with Alpana instead.

  • Unlock Liliartie's neutral ending.

    Missable!

    To earn this trophy, you have to complete the game normally with Liliartie while her faith is 3 or under. Do not upgrade her faith above 3 before earning this trophy. The girl whom you choose at the beginning doesn't matter. What matters is after completing the first half of the game, you will get to choose a girl again. Make sure to select Liliartie to continue her story.

    If you have completed the first section of the game with all 4 girls' faith at 3 or higher, after completing the treaty chapter, you can choose if you want to continue with all 4 girls or not. Choose "No" to continue the normal path.

    After you’ve completed the game, after the credits and the epilogue, you are asked if you want to start over with the save or not. Choose "No" to continue playing just before the final mission so that you unlock some side missions and you can go for all three of Liliartie's endings in one playthrough.

  • Unlock Liliartie's good ending.

    Missable!

    Do not attempt to go for this trophy before Liliartie Neutral Ending, otherwise you will have to make another playthrough.

    To earn this trophy, you have to complete the game normally with Liliartie while her faith is 4. Do not upgrade her faith above 4 before earning this trophy. Again, when prompted if you want to start over with this save, select "No" so you can unlock Liliartie Best Ending in this playthrough also.

  • Unlock Liliartie's best ending.

    Missable!

    Do not attempt to go for this trophy before Liliartie Neutral Ending and Liliartie Good Ending, otherwise you will have to make another playthrough.

    To earn this trophy, you have to complete the game normally with Liliartie while her faith is 5. Before completing this ending and starting over, make sure to do all possible side missions because they are needed to unlock materia.

  • Unlock Veronica's good ending.

    Missable!

    This trophy is just like Liliartie Good Ending but with Veronica. Do not raise her faith past 4 before earning this trophy.

  • Unlock Veronica's best ending.

    Missable!

    This trophy is just like Liliartie Best Ending but with Veronica.

  • Unlock Monomaria's neutral ending.

    Missable!

    This trophy is just like Liliartie Neutral Ending but with Monomaria. Do not raise her faith past 3 before earning this trophy.

  • Unlock Monomaria's good ending.

    Missable!

    This trophy is just like Liliartie Good Ending but with Monomaria. Do not raise her faith past 4 before earning this trophy.

  • Unlock Monomaria's best ending.

    Missable!

    This trophy is just like Liliartie Best Ending but with Monomaria.

  • Unlock Alpana's good ending.

    Missable!

    This trophy is just like Liliartie Good Ending but with Alpana. Do not raise her faith past 4 before earning this trophy.

  • Unlock Alpana's best ending.

    Missable!

    This trophy is just like Liliartie Best Ending but with Alpana.

  • Defeat the Wawel Dragon.

    Story related and cannot be missed.

    This is fought during Liliartie's story in the first half of the game. Regardless of which princess you choose at the beginning of the game, you will have to play through all of them so this is unmissable.

    This is a dragon that spits fire and has stomping attacks. These attacks hurt quite a bit, but they are easy to avoid.

  • Defeat Tyrant Yaga.

    Story related and cannot be missed.

    This is earned in the mission is "Treaty of the Four Princess Knights 1-1". This is unmissable, because you have to do these missions regardless of whom you've selected. It's a large zombie enemy. Take care of its arms first, then hit the body from the side.

  • Defeat Yamlita Amoga.

    Missable!

    This is a story related trophy in Monomaria's normal route. It is fought at the end of the game and it’s a rather tough fight as its attacks do quite a bit of damage.

  • Defeat Omen Chrysalis.

    Missable!

    This is a story related trophy in Liliartie’s and Alpana's routes. You will also fight this enemy in the true end route. If you are fighting it in Liliartie's and Alpana's routes, you can claim the fan relics so that them can damage it.

  • Unlock all Knowledge Materia for all princesses.

    Missable!

    Each princess has 80 knowledge materia. You unlock knowledge materia by completing regular missions, completing side missions, defeating new types of enemies, visiting the "???" on the maps and claiming new relics. When the princess’s faith is high enough, you unlock Virtual Training, and completing the fourth level of said training is required for a new materia.

    Liliartie's Virtual Training has a mini game that you have to collect meat. The bigger piece is worth 5 points. Getting hit by dumbells and bombs will stun her for a moment but she's not penalized in any other way and she can still collect meat while stunned. This is random and can take a few tries. Veronica's Virtual Training is easy. Just destroy everything in the middle of the screen. There is an order that you have to destroy parts of the things, but it's easy and nearly impossible to fail. Monomaria's Virtual Training is pretty easy, because you have to collect coins while avoiding relics that can stun you. Be careful in the fourth stage, because there are coins that are hidden behind columns and there is a fenced area in the north with coins that seems to be impossible to reach but you can enter it through an opening in the center, which its view is blocked by a column in front of it. Alpana's Virtual Training is the same as Liliartie's, except instead of meat, you're collecting macaroons. I find it easier than Liliartie's though.

    You can only earn up to 79 materia in a normal playthrough, with the 80th unlocked with a true end playthrough. This trophy is the reason why it takes 8 playthrough to platinum. You not only have to unlock all of the materia, but also learn them.

    Materia can be unlocked with any commander but in order to actually learn the materia, you need to use the commander princess that you’re training. For that reason, I recommend always using your current princess for all missions whenever possible.

    If a materia is learned through "Direct Guidance", you can use "Praise" or "Scold" to learn them. It doesn't matter what you choose, but sometimes the direct guidance doesn't work as intended but it'll still help you learn the materia. Praising and scolding in cutscenes also counts towards this. 2-3 praises/scolds usually learns materia.

    The other materia is learned through in-game actions like defeating certain types of enemies, activating relics, earning money etc. You can change what materia you're actively learning in the base but if you change the materia, all of the progress towards the previous materia will be lost.

    In the true end route, it's possible to learn all materia. You will want to learn materia as you progress through the game but if you’re at the end of the game, the best way to learn materia is to go to a training mission. The training mission randomly gives you a previously cleared stage. If the stage you want hasn’t loaded, select "Retire" and try again. It will likely take you a few tries to get the stage that you want.

  • Upgrade a piece of gear to maximum level.

    In the base menu, select "Workshop/Weapons" and select "Enhanced Weapons". Any weapon you see that has a green icon is upgradable. Keep upgrading the same weapon to unlock this. This will require a lot of gold and knowing certain materia. I would leave this trophy until you're doing the true end playthroughs.

  • Purchase all Instructor Skill upgrades.

    Missable!

    You will need 370 skill points in total to earn this. To earn this many skill points, make sure to teach all 4 princesses the materia that gives you the most skill points in the first half in the game, as after you get past this point, you can't teach them more materia. If you've been teaching them materia that doesn't give out many skill points, you might not have enough skill points in the end and have to make another playthrough. You'll likely have to earn this in a true end playthrough, because you will be learning all materia in the playthrough that you can teach to the princess.

  • Unlock Veronica's neutral ending.

    Missable!

    This trophy is just like Liliartie Neutral Ending but with Veronica. Do not raise her faith past 3 before earning this trophy.

  • Unlock Alpana's neutral ending.

    Missable!

    This trophy is just like Liliartie Neutral Ending but with Alpana. Do not raise her faith past 3 before earning this trophy.

 

Secret trophies

  • Unlock all princesses' endings.

    Missable!

    This is the true ending of the game. To earn this ending, you need to have all 4 princesses' faith to 3 or higher. When you play through the game with all 4 princess in the first half, make sure to raise their faith to 3, by teaching each princess your best faith boosting materia. After completing the first half the game, you get to choose a princess. Choosing a princess doesn't matter for this trophy but to earn the trophy Knower of Things, you will have to go through this route with all four princesses eventually. After completing the treaty chapter, you can choose if you want to continue with all 4 girls or not. Choose "Yes" to go to the true end path.

    In this path, there are a few annoying missions where you have to defeat groups of enemies on the map before the time expires. You might have to dispatch more than one commander to complete them, as having one commander doesn't give enough time to complete it or if you're using one commander, use a item that withdraws them but allows them to dispatch immediately.

  • Defeat Nightmare Monarch.

    Missable!

    Nightmare Monarch is the final boss in the true ending. See A New Dawn! for more information on how to get the true ending. As it’s the final boss in the true route, it's quite difficult and you will want to keep your distance. A princess with ranged attacks like Veronica can defeat it without much problems.
