Introduction:

XBlaze Code: Embryo takes place 150 years before the story of the Blazblue series began, and while fans of that series may understand what is going on during XBlaze, no prior knowledge is needed for any newcomers. Follow Touya Kagari, a normal high school sophomore who has amnesia about his childhood, as his life as he knows it is about to change for the worse when he hears a strange ringing noise and investigates it.

Unlike most visual novels where you must select the correct choices given to you to proceed to getting different endings, this game requires you to read the correct Technology of Interest (aka TOi) articles in order to get all of the endings that are available. Alongside with the different TOi articles to read and the different endings to get, you will also be collecting every artwork, scene, music, and recap that the game has. Be grateful though that the game will be keeping track of all the stuff that was previously mentioned that you have collected for you so you don’t have to. Plus, since the PS3 and Vita don’t share a trophy list, you can potentially get 2 platinum trophies.

Basic Controls and Notes

Controls
- scroll up
- scroll left
- scroll right
- scroll down
- pause the game
(Vita users ) - skip dialogue
- access to Tips
- Cancel, exit out of menus
- confirm, advance dialogue
- access to TOi

Notes

  • Vita owners will want to download and install patch version 1.01 as it fixes the glitches and freezes people been complaining about when having to save games, and getting the Setting the Record Straight trophy. PS3 owners don’t need to worry about downloading any patches as far as I know.
  • Before starting the game for the first time, go to settings and be sure to turn off auto read speed, so that you can read at your own pace, and turn off auto save. You will be abusing the manual save so that way you can keep track what part of the chapter you are on so that you can load up the save files and watch some recap videos if available.
  • While in the settings, go ahead and set the game up to whatever control you want.
  • When you come across any dialogue that you have already read, you are free to skip the dialogue if you want. There are 3 ways that any skip dialogue will come to a halt, and they are: new TOi articles become available, you press any button, and when there is new dialogue you haven’t read before.
  • After completing an ending for the first time, all previously made and new save files will start showing who has read what TOi article before you even read them. It will make reading the correct TOi articles easier for different endings.
  • It’s okay to read any TOi articles without anyone faces since they don’t affect the outcome of someones ending, except for the gag route. More on that in It's Not Soylent Green. Stop Asking. trophy.


Walkthrough

Step 1: Hinata’s and Es’s endings

Go through the game while reading all of the TOi articles up to Chapter 5-5 and make 3 separate save files, using 2 of those saves to work towards Hinata’s and Es’s endings. The 3rd save file will be in use in step 3. The following trophies that should unlock in this step are:

Step 2: Kuon’s and Mei’s endings

Start a new playthrough, this time only reading TOi articles that Kuon and Mei have read up until Chapter 6, then create 4 separate save files, using 2 of the save files to get Kuon’s and Mei’s ending while saving the other 2 save files for step 3.

Step 3: The bad endings

Take the 1 unfinished save file from the Hinata/Es playthrough and the 2 unfinished save files from the Kuon/Mei playthrough, and work towards getting the bad endings on those playthroughs. Plus, start a new playthrough and don’t read any TOi articles for another bad ending. The following trophies that should unlock in this step are:

Step 4: The Gag route

Once all of the endings has been done from the previous steps, you can start working on the Gag route and getting the 3 bad endings plus 1 good ending that appears in the route. The following trophies that should unlock in this step are:

Also, when reading articles from Chapter 6 through Chapter 9, you will notice that there are some articles you are missing, do not panic.

Audiophile
You've played all songs in Music. 

There are a total of 47 songs to collect in the game, and they can only be unlocked by listening to them while you are going for all of the endings, including the credits. Thankfully, the game will keep track of what songs you have heard and which ones you still need to find in the game. The last song you will need to get should come from the credits theme in the Gag route ending. Once you do have it, from the main menu go to Extras > Music and the list of 47 should be there. Play all of the songs for about 5 seconds each, and this trophy should unlock upon playing the last song.

Photographic Memory(s)
Unlocked all of the scene recaps. 

While playing through the game, there will be scenes that will be unlocking in the extras while the game is keeping track of them for you. At any time you notice that you are missing any of the 46 scenes, for example Ep. 5 Desired World A, start a new playthrough, reach and watch/skip text all of Chapter 5 without accessing the Tips menu once. Then save and check to see if you got that scene. In order for this trophy to unlock once you have all of the scenes, from the main menu go to extras > events, then press (Vita users ) and the trophy should show up.

Raging against the Machine?
Reach a dead end without accessing TOi once. 

This is a story related trophy. To get this trophy, start a new playthrough and when the game forces you to look into the TOi, say no to the tutorial and immediately press to get out of the TOi. From there on out, do not ever go back to the TOi for the rest of the playthrough. Completing the playthrough will result in getting a bad ending in Chapter 6 titled “Fade to Black” which you will need anyways when going for all of the bad endings. This trophy will unlock after Chapter 6-1: The End.

OMG! They're so DREAMY...!
Opened a character's profile. 

See Hey! My eyes are up HERE! for more details.

Hey! My eyes are up HERE!
You've read the profile of every character. 

There are 17 profiles to read, and that is including Touya Kagari. In order to read each of the character’s profiles, you must have access to the TOi. As you progress through the game, new profiles will be added, and their information will be updated throughout the game. In order to get the maximum amount of information for all of the profiles, get to the start of Chapter 10-5 on Es’s route and start reading everyone’s profiles. Once you have read the last profile this trophy should show up.

Setting the Record Straight
You've seen all of the summaries (yup, all 110). (1) 

The summaries/recaps in this game are called Abstract Outline System (aka A.O.S), and as the description says there are 110 A.O.S’s to watch. How you watch an A.O.S is really simple, as you can save your game anywhere in the chapter you are currently in, then when you are loading that save file you are given the option to whether you want to watch the A.O.S or not. Select yes and you are able to see a small recap of what has happened in the last chapter you were previously on, or the current chapter you’re on if you made it to the chapter’s halfway point. This trophy will unlock the moment you have seen the last A.O.S. For more information on how to get all 110 A.O.S’s, come to the tips and guide.

XBLAZE, IGNITE!
You've started your journey into the XBLAZE universe. 

When you are at the main menu screen for the first time, go and click start and the trophy will pop right away.

Phenomena Observer
Completed all scenarios 100%! Good job! 

This trophy is basically a complete all of the collect-a-thon extras the game has to offer. This means you must have collected all of the stills, scenes, music, recaps, and endings in order to get 100%. This trophy should unlock the moment you have finished watching the credits to the Gag route.

Experienced the hilarity of the gag scenario. 

This is a story related trophy. It is only achievable when going for the Gag route ending. In order to start a Gag route playthrough, you have to see all of the endings, then start a new playthrough and skip reading the text until the game forces you into a tutorial about using the TOi.

After reading the article, save and return to the main menu and enter the code, where you will enter an entire new game. When proceeding through the Gag route, you will be forced, by the game, to read TOi’s, and reading the correct article will continue your progress through the Gag route. You will know that you have read the correct article when a message saying That’s interesting… appears. The correct article’s to read in each chapter are as follow:

Chapter 1: The Kitteh Diaries 6: Crazy Old Man
