ToHeart 2 DX Plus
ToHeart 2 DX Plus is a Japanese romcom visual novel, and an updated version with added content from ToHeart 2, which in turn was first released on the PlayStation 2 in 2004. Players follow the story of the main character, while periodically making choices to particular events, as well as selecting which character's story to continue each day.
The male protagonist is Takaaki Kouno (whom the player can rename), a high school student who is generally shy and awkward around girls. The story begins in the Spring, after Takaaki's parents have left on an overseas business trip. His best friends are the wealthy Yuuji Kousaka, and the younger Konomi Yuzuhara who lives down the road. Depending on the player's choices, Takaaki spends his year at school interacting with friends and classmates, often leading to finding true love.
ToHeart 2, originally released in 2004, received critical acclaim by numerous Japanese magazines for its well-developed story and colorful characters, and has since been ranked the 3rd best visual novel of all time in Japan, out of 249 popular titles, by Dengeki G's Magazine poll.
Despite there not being any English version for the PlayStation 3, the Platinum is still easy to acquire even if you don't understand a word of Japanese. As a visual novel, all you'll need to do is text-skip and clear sets of stories, making choices along the way and a few strategic saves.
If you are text-skipping and following one of the ToHeart 2 trophy guide links under our Links tab, then the Platinum can be earned in around 12-14 hours.
In our Links page, check out the trophy guide by MainComptonese, which is a valuable source to learn what choices to make and when to include a save point. For the most part of the game, you'll be following (or text-skipping) the story by holding R1. At various moments you'll need to make choices, which you can choose by referring to Maincomptonese's trophy guide.
Each day for the main character usually begins with him waking up, heading to school, and taking part in some event during class. After school, there will be maps of different areas, each with a particular character's story to select. Hit R1 to move the Map to the Right, and Circle to select the location. Again, use MainComptonese's trophy guide to learn which location to select, depending on where you are in the story.
Each playthrough will consist of working through the story of one of the characters. After completing that story, unlocking that character's respective trophy, and saving the game, you can then reload one of the specified save points and continue with a different character.
Once you've unlocked each of the character's stories' trophies, there are a few miscellaneous trophies to unlock, which may involve unlocking missing CG photos. If you've been following MainComptonese's guide, you can reload those save files and try to unlock a different picture. The pictures are random, which means you will have to reload these save points several times until you unlock the rare photo (such as Sasara's white skirt) and thereby unlock the trophy.
This is a valuable Trophy Guide by MainComptonese, which also explains which choices to make and where to make save points:
