Prepare yourself for an epic journey like no other in Persona 3 Reload! With nearly four dozen trophies up for grabs and a runtime that demands over 100 hours of your precious time, completing this colossal game is an achievement in itself. But if you want to conquer the trophy list and achieve 100 percent completion, you'll need to embark on a daring New Game Plus (NG+) run.
Beware, dear players, for the road to victory is fraught with challenges. The Compendium, a collection of powerful Personas, remains out of reach until you've completed the main story. And let's not forget the daunting task of nurturing all your social links in a single playthrough. With the fate of your friendships hanging in the balance, and the hours spent grinding in Tartarus solely at your discretion, careful balance is the key to success.
In the world of Persona 3 Reload, Twilight Fragments hold a mysterious power. These whimsical blue items flicker enticingly on the streets of Iwatodai and Port Island, tempting you to collect them. These fragments are crucial for unlocking the treasures hidden within the Twilight Fragment chests scattered throughout Tartarus. And while conversing with Elizabeth, the ever-loyal attendant, may also yield some Twilight Fragments as rewards for improving social links, this particular trophy demands that you find each and every fragment hidden around town. Good thing the rewards in Tartarus are worth the effort!
As you ascend the treacherous Yabbashah block of Tartarus, the third block, a world of new combat mechanics will reveal itself. With a firmer grasp on the game, you'll face the challenge of the Monad Doors that appear along your path. Each door guards a Shadow more formidable than those found on the surrounding floors. But take heart, brave warriors, for defeating these Shadows will grant you special rewards, including blueprints for powerful weapons available at Mayoido Antiques. To earn this achievement, you must conquer the Monad Doors not once or twice, but ten times. Beware, though, for the doors may be elusive and sporadic in their appearance.
In your quest for glory, grinding within Tartarus becomes a necessity. Your teammates rely on you to gain experience points, level up, improve stats, and unlock impressive new moves for their Personas. However, achieving the trophy for dealing 999 damage to a single enemy in a single attack requires boosting and buffing your way through the game, even in its final stages. There's a catch, though—it can't be an All-Out Attack. Oh no, that would be too easy! Instead, one of your teammates must deal this crushing blow on their own. This feat is possible with high-level Theurgy skills towards the end of the game, but be prepared for a long and challenging endeavor.
While the majority of enemies change between Persona games, the infamous Reaper made its debut in Persona 3. This powerful Shadow lurks within Tartarus, ready to obliterate you and your party if you linger on any given floor for too long. The Reaper, boasting a formidable level of 99, can effortlessly wipe out even the hardiest of warriors. To preserve your life and limb, it's wise to expedite your explorations through Tartarus, avoiding unnecessary loitering. However, if you truly seek to achieve 100 percent completion in Persona 3 Reload, you must summon and face this formidable foe head-on, defeating him to claim your rightful achievement.
Prepare for a social marathon as you tackle the challenge of forging connections with nearly two dozen unique social links. Unlocking this trophy requires not only meeting every single social link in the game but also spending enough quality time with them, making the right dialogue choices to elevate their relationship to Rank Ten (Max) before the game's conclusion. New Game Plus offers the best opportunity for success, as the items your friends bestow upon you will help them remember the bonds you shared during your first playthrough. And who knows? Maybe you'll unlock the fabled Orpheus Telos, a supercharged version of Orpheus, just as in previous versions of Persona 3.
Reaching the end of any game is a formidable task, but Persona 3 Reload takes it to a whole new level. With two different endings awaiting you and countless hours of gameplay between your arrival in Iwatodai and the climactic finale, it's a testament to your dedication and endurance to stay committed to this legendary JRPG.
The Persona series has never been known for its brevity, and Persona 3 Reload stays true to form. To witness the elusive good ending, be prepared to extend the story by an additional month. Brace yourself for an entirely new section of Tartarus, where you'll face off against the embodiment of death itself. No pressure, right? But fear not, intrepid gamers, for the rewards that await you are worth every minuteof your time and every ounce of effort you invest.
Persona 3 Reload is a game that demands your unwavering dedication, strategic thinking, and a willingness to explore every nook and cranny of its rich world. Whether you're collecting Twilight Fragments, conquering the Monad Doors, dealing massive damage to enemies, facing the fearsome Reaper, or nurturing your social links, each challenge presents an opportunity for growth and accomplishment.
So gather your courage, sharpen your skills, and prepare yourself for the ultimate gaming journey. Persona 3 Reload awaits, ready to test your mettle and reward your determination. Can you conquer the shadows, collect the fragments, and master the game? The choice is yours. Embrace the challenge and let the power of Persona guide you to victory!
