Steins Gate Zero Trophy Guide. Difficulty: * A visual novel and part of the Science Adventure series, and pseudo-sequel to the 2009 Steins;Gate. If following a walkthrough and text-skipping, the Platinum can be unlocked in less than two hours.
Steins;Gate 0 is a visual novel, part of the Science Adventure series, and a sequel to the 2009 title Steins;Gate. Players read through text that is accompanied with graphics, spoken dialogue, and music, while making choices that affect the outcome of the story.
Set in Akihabara, Tokyo, and in an alternative future following the events of the original Steins;Gate, university student Rintaro Okabe becomes a tester for Amadeus, an artificial intelligence made up of digitized memories. Meanwhile, the time traveler Suzuha Amane and neuroscientist Maho Hiyajo seek a way to prevent a time-travel arms race that could lead to WWIII.
Steins;Gate 0 received positive reviews with an average score of 83%, praised for its story, atmosphere, and colorful characters, though criticized by some for difficulty in experiencing different endings and lack in understanding certain aspects without having played the previous Steins;Gate.
Since Steins;Gate 0 is a visual novel, there is nothing difficult in obtaining the Platinum. The game is simply reading through text and making choices. With a few strategic saves made along the way, the Platinum can be earned in one or two playthroughs, with a lot of backtracking.
Expect only 2 hours for the Platinum if following a guide and text-skipping, or up to 40 hours if reading everything and making multiple playthroughs.
NOTE: The trophies on the PS4 share the same list with those on the PS3 and PS Vita for the North American and European versions. However, the Japanese, Korean, and Hong Kong versions have separate trophy lists for each system.
There are several ways you can go about getting the Platinum, depending on how much you wish to enjoy Steins;Gate 0, versus being in a rush for collecting all the trophies.
If you simply wish to enjoy the game first, then by all means go ahead. Afterwards, you can start again and work towards viewing the alternate endings by making other choices.
If you wish to enjoy the game, but not have to backtrack so much, then we recommend making at least four saves at the following points: 1. Chapter - Closed Epigraph (12/5) when choosing to turn on or off the phone 2. Chapter - The Orbital Eclipse (1/2) before choosing to ignore or cancel the call 3. Chapter - Anitomic Dual (1/15) when choosing to answer or ignore the call 4. Chapter - Pandora's Box (1/23) before choosing to answer or ignore the call
Having saves at these four points will make backtracking and selecting alternate endings quicker. The third option is to go through with one playthrough, and even text-skip, to get that Platinum as quickly as possible. If you decide to do this, then we highly recommend following the Quick Platinum Walkthrough by neosnake101 under our Links tab.
