All Finished with Six Full Playthroughs of Nocturne HD Remaster! I 100% the Trophies too! :)

I’ve finally completed the Yosuga route, it even glitched on me after beating Yosuga the first time where it didn’t run the ending scene. I had a hunch and replayed it and found it went through the second time. I think whomever implemented the trophy obtainment icons didn’t do a good job, because it seems it pauses the actual scene and in the case of Yosuga, it didn’t allow the final scene to play through. I tried making alternate builds, but the high level party members with pierce made that moot. I had initially intended to do another full TDE playthrough and acquire Dante, but I’ve already beaten the TDE route twice on hard mode in the PS2 version. All together, I’ve beaten 10 full playthroughs of Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne, if you don’t count alternate save files since around 2009. So, Shijima, TDE, TDE, Musubi and Yosuga in both alternate save files of TDE. And then, with the HD Remaster on the PS4, here are the playthroughs and a short description of what I intended for each:

It took a bit more time than I intended and I had played other games between playthroughs to reduce the potential risk of boredom. Now that I’ve finished it all, I intend to write the remaining thematic analyses so I hope people look forward to that. I don’t have a definite timeframe when they’ll be done though. If anyone wishes to watch them, hope you enjoy. Anyway, all done! 🙂
