Introduction

Welcome to the NEO: The World Ends with You trophy guide!
The long awaited sequel of Square Enix The World Ends With You. 3 years after the first part you will find yourself in another Reapers Game in Shibuya. Will you be able to survive and get back to your normal life?

Trophy Roadmap

Step 1: Finish the main Story
Play through all the days and finish as many quests, dives and pig noises as you can. 

Step 2: Chapter Select Cleanup
Finish the remaining tasks from step 1 and also look out for the Axion, Dilaton and Dibaryon conditions.

Step 3: Black Cat Ensemble + Superboss
Get the Pins of the Yearlong Ensemble and use it to beat the Superboss on Normal Difficult. 

Step 4: The Grind
Now that you have the best Pin Sets and hopefully good stats, it’s time to fill your collections.

Tips and Strategies

General Tipps:

Use Restaurants as much as possible.

Change pins when you have evolved and mastered, this will spare you a lot of grind in the end.

When you speak to Hishima on Another Day you can change your team, you will need to do this to evolve Pins.

On the Chapter Screen can check your progress toward quests, dives, scambles and also noises (Pigdar Bonus, unlocks Week 2 – Day 3). There is no specific trophy for all quests and dive, but you will need them for Silver Skill Savvy. You can also repeat previous chapters at any time.

Levelling and Stats:

Levels only raise your HP in this game, other Stats only raise with food. It also means that lowering your Level only effect your HP. There is also a Social Network Reward called “HP Retain” which reduce your lose, so you will not feel a big difference between max level and level 1 at some point. 

Usefull Pin-Sets:

  • Yearlong Ensemble: St. Ver’s Uppercut, St. Aestas’  Shrapnel, St. Autumnus’  Strike, St. Hiems’ Shotgun + Hotaru (Optional: Hog Healer): The Effect of this Sets restores your HP while dealing Damage to your enemy . Hotaru is another great light element pin. Hog Healer is the best healing pin. This can be a great help especially for beating the superboss.

  • Black Cat Ensemble: The effect tremendously increase your attack, which make this the best damage dealing set in the game. There is no healing pin in there, so you either need to trust it on your equipment or use Killer Remix to heal.

High-Stakes Hijinks
Won a 20-reduction chain battle.

You are starting a chain when 2 or more Noise symbols hovering over you when you start a battle. You will see a counter on your screen. At the beginning you can only do chains up to five battles, to get 20 you will need all of the Chain Extender and the Noise Magnet Social Network rewards.

,Killer Remix
Erased a group of Noise using a Killer Remix.

Killer Remix will unlock Week 2 Day 7. Simple use Circle when you groove reached 300% and end the battle with it. This makes a lot of damage and heals so it is a good way to save you from critical situations. Killing Noises with this also raise your drop rate x3.

Brand Ambassador
Wore a full outfit using a single brand.

This is similar to Bronze Dress-Up Debut, but every of the items need to be of the same brand.

Passion 4 Fashion

The same as Bronze Dress-Up Debut, but for all of your characters. You can only unlock this when you got your 6th party member on Week 3 Day 5.

Every Fashion item has an ability which only activate if your style is high enough. For this trophy equip one of your charas only with threads that have abilities which need more than 100 style. You can raise your style by eating in restaurants.

Made of Money
Possessed ¥999,999.

To get Money you need to sell pins. First you can only hold up to 99,999 Yen. To expand your wallet unlock the ShibuPay Expansions Social Network rewards. Some items will cost you more than 1 million, so you definitely will get this while grinding.

The highest worth pin one is the 100,000 Yen one which drops from Hardcore Puffer, Plague Nemopilema and Motoi on Ultimate. Since Hardcore Puffer is the only regular noise this should be your way to go. 

I recommend to farm them at Cat Street on Another Day. Since the drop rate is quit low, set your level to 1 and equipment which raise your drop rate. Than chain together as much as your are able to beat. Hardcore Puffer explode after you defeat them and will do a lot of damage, so get away from them as fast as you can.
