Things you should know before playing this game!
1. "Hiko Waka" - This mysterious guy is what makes this version of the game interesting. He gives valuable information that will help you get the extra trophies that was added to this game. Go to him at night time between 18:00 - 05:59 to receive information about extra partners.
2. "This game is in Japanese *HARDCORE*" In case you didn't notice, the entire game is in Japanese with no English translations. This guide is the bare minimum of what I've completed. So hopefully you wont have any trouble understanding this guide and know what to do.
*Note* I'm only covering the extra trophies that were added to this game. If you need help with the other original trophies then feel free to look at the guide for the original game *English*
3. "Ultra Hard Difficulty" Warning... DO NOT play this difficulty until you have your player ready for it. Max health and a weapon that has 100+ attack and defense would help you a great deal. Also, stack up on healing items just in case you enter a fight.
The video below shows how long your Max life bar should be and an idea of how strong your weapons is.
Follow these steps to make this game easier. (optional)
Step #1 - Make a strong character. It may take hours, but it saves you from suffering on Ultra Hard Difficulty. If you've played the original version then you already know what I'm talking about. Check out threads here. They provide info to help make your life easier and fun.
Step #2 - Once you've made a strong character, complete Ultra Hard Difficulty. It's fun but if you're not familiar with this game then don't try it until you're better prepared.
Step #3 - Get Osei, Itsuse, Araragi-hime and Sensei as your partners. There are 8 trophies for it. Make sure to complete the game with each of them as your spouse (living with you).
Step #4 - Complete the perverted monster event. Yeah... It's awesome. Read guide for more details.
[PS3T Would Like to Thank DEVILRYUUJIN for this Road Map]
This is a special event that was made for the Plus version of this game. To trigger this event you must kill 10 partners. Before killing 10 partners, you need to actually become partners with 6 people and kill them. Every time you kill a partner a memorial of that partner will appear in your house by your weapon safe. Once you get 6 memorials, you will lose the ability to gather partners. Trust me, I've tried. Your potential partners will run away from you like you're so evil (which you are), so kill them while they run away. Also make sure to cancel being with a spouse if you have one and once you get 10 partners you will meet the requirement to trigger event. Now go to Hiko and he will start shaking and begin to tell you a story about the 10 women who seal this monster. But since you've kill those women (partners) the seal is broken and he's more perverted than ever. He explains that the monster was seal by the ruins at the Road/Highway near the waterfall.
Once you've reached the Road, go behind the temple and you will see a samurai *kirizo* and Uriko (unconcious) *dlc lady* go speak to samurai but don't kill him or raise your blades to him. Leave them and go across the bridge and you will see the ruins where Hiko is on. He will begin talking and if you didn't notice yet, he is the perverted monster. He will show you his true form and teleport behind you. Kirizo will also appear. Defeat Kirizo and Hiko will betray you and then you must KILL Hiko.
This fight is cheap. I'll advise you play this game on easy. Hiko dual weld style is epic and if you defeat him those awesome blades are yours for the taking. Hiko will summon a little demon kid after you to stun/stagger you. If you have a blade that's quick you can destroy that kid and go back to fighting Hiko. The first thing you want to do is to break Hiko weapons. Once those weapons are gone you can kill Hiko with ease. Those weapons keep Hiko from dying which is annoying if you're playing him on harder difficulty. Good luck and see video for help if the explanation is not good enough. Trophy pops after he dies.
Samurai Dou 3+ has a new difficulty Ultra Hard. It is tough and you will need to have lot of healing items because the damage you will receive is extremely high. To make this playthrough easier you must max your life to 9999 and have a weapon with both its attack and defense 100+.
Get max life quickly... Have about 15000 yen, go to the posting station and speak to the merchant there. Buy 10 magic jewels. 1500 yen per magic jewel... 1500 x 10 = 15000. Now once you've bought them, kill the merchant to get your money back. You will have both the new magic jewels and your money you've spent. Now exit/leave game. Remember to save file or it will not save your magic jewels usage. Reload game save which is a new playthrough and repeat process. It takes 90+ magic jewels to give maximum life, so you will have to repeat this process up to 10 times.
Get high attack and defense weapon... 1st get a weapon of your choice. I would advise you getting a weapon that has high quality 1/5 and weighs light (1). Once you've found a weapon, go to the blacksmith Dojima. If you have 10000 yen then it might save you some time to boost your weapon. When you go to the blacksmith to boost your weapon attack and defense, select RANDOM to get both attack and defense boost. If you don't get the stats you want then simply press to reforge weapon. Keep repeating this until you get both your attack 10+ and defense 10+ with every forge. If you run out of yen, simply kill Dojima and get your money back. Exit/Leave Amana and don't forget to save file. Now reload save and repeat process with the same weapon until that weapon is over 5 quality. Ex: 10/5 quality. Your attack and defense should be over 50+. You can now title appraise your weapon for the Legendary title which will add 50+ attack and defense to your sword. Now your weapon should have over 100+ attack and defense and you're ready to tackle Ultra Hard Difficulty.
To get this trophy, all you have to do is become partners with Osei. It will cost you 3 golden eggs. *Waka Hiko* Just call this guy Hiko. Hiko is a special guy in this game that will give information. Hiko is by the trees at the guard gate/barrier (Make sure to speak to him during Night time). Talk to him and he will talk about how to get Osei, Itsuse and Araragi-hime. Select Osei "???", which is the first option. She will become available as a partner after you give Hiko 3 golden eggs. Hiko is hilarious, but anyways he will tell you where to meet Osei. She will be in Tanemura aka Takekane village, between 18:00 - 00:00 in the fields. Go there and speak with Osei and if you follow the video below she will become your partner. Trophy will pop after notification pops up saying Osei is now your partner.
*Note* Osei ability is special healing disguise. She just transforms into different personas which are kawaii. 1. Hana Osei - she puts a flower on her head. 2. Mother Osei - she carries a baby. 3. Battle God Osei - she just wears horns and battle drums on her back.
Now we will be going after Itsuse. This can be time consuming. Go to Hiko (at night), He is always near the Guard Gate/Barrier. Talk to him and he will talk about how to get Osei, Itsuse and Araragi-hime. Select Itsuse "???", which is the second option. Hiko explains that you need to kill 3 suspicious persons and Itsuse will become available as partner. Suspicious persons appear at night and you have to wander around Amana looking for them. Time consuming, but sometimes you can get lucky and be able to get them in one night. After killing all 3 of them, go back to Hiko and speak to him. He will tell you Itsuse is available and she will appear at the Road/Highway between 18:00 - 00:00 by the temple. Go to the Road/Highway and speak to Itsuse. In order for her to become your partner, you must spar with her (with blunt attacks) and beat her. She will submit to your skill and speak to her again and she will partner up with you. Trophy unlocks after notification says Itsuse is now your partner.
*Note* Itsuse hates being bored and she can be very moody. The only thing that makes Itsuse special is that she will fight along side you. She can hold her own with normal enemies, but mini-bosses will most likely kill her. Be careful of that, the more she fights and you speak with her, the stronger her affection will become.
Again, talk to Hiko at night time. He will speak about how to get Osei, Itsuse and Araragi-hime. Select Araragi-hime "??", which is the third option. Hiko explains that you need 10000 yen for her. If you dont have 10000 yen then this will be time consuming. When you have the money, go to Hiko and give it to him. He will say you will find Araragi-hime in Your City aka Omiki Town between 18:00 - 00:00 near abandon house. When you get to her you must agree that you will follow her so take a bow/apologies for 30 secs and she will grant you permission to become her partner. The trophy will pop after notification of Araragi-hime is now your partner.
*Note* Araragi-hime is an evil but great partner. She has the power to attract evil to you. Which is great if you're max out and kill anything with ease. Samurai hunters, Suspicious persons and yen robbing thieves come after you way more frequently. She also has a good side to make you have good luck.
*You don't need to speak to Hiko for this partner* All you need to do is during the day, head to the dojo at Guard Gate/Barrier. Beat the guy on the 1st floor with blunt attacks. Beat the guy on the 2nd floor with blunt attacks. Finally, beat Sensei with blunt attacks. After defeating Sensei, talk to her while she lays on the floor. She will call out your name. She laughs and is amazed that you've beaten her. Afterwards, come back to Guard Gate between 18:00 - 00:00. Sensei is now praying near some graves outside her dojo. Go to her and listen to her long story. After listening to her long story, speak to her more about her becoming your partner. She will eventually accept your request. Trophy pops after notification says Sensei is now your partner.
*Note* Sensei will act like a sensei and criticize your way of fighting. Deal with it. She is valuable. Her special ability allows you to choose which jobs you want to do from the 4 job brokers.
This trophy will unlock at the end of your playthrough with Osei as your spouse. As soon as you get Osei as your partner, build her affection by hanging out and speaking with her. Make her change into different persons and speak with her after that. Try to avoid fighting around her, but if you can't, protect her. Once the fight is over and if she is damaged, heal her and speak with her afterwards. It will take a few days, but once you are in your house the option to live with me will appear and Osei will gladly accept. Keep her home, then clear the game with her as your spouse and trophy will pop at the end and along with alternate costume.
[Secret Of Itsuse] [Unlock Itsuse Alternate Costume]
This trophy unlocks at the end of your playthrough with Itsuse being your spouse. When Itsuse is your partner, build her affection by speaking with and fighting along side her. She is moody and she will soften as her affection builds higher. Take care of her when her health is low by healing her with radishes or eggs. Eventually, when you both are at your house, the option will appear to live with you. She will be shocked, but will stay with you. She's pretty distant, even while being your spouse. She will get mad if you take money out of the safe. Clear the game with her as your spouse and the trophy will unlock at the end, along with the alternate costume.
Clear game while Araragi-hime is your spouse. When she is your partner, you must build affection by killing people around her. Kicking their corpses will make her laugh "LOL". She is indeed evil and she loves it when you kill and steal from people. This will raise her affection more and more. Also, use her special ability to attract evil towards you and kill all the people who wants to kill or steal from you. It makes raising her affection more very easy. Once you guys are back at the house and her affection is high from you, an extra option will appear and you should select it and she will be your evil seductive spouse. Keep her indoors and clear the game. Trophy pops after that and along with her alternate costume.
[Secret Of Sensei] [Unlock Sensei Alternate Costume]
Clear game while Sensei is your spouse. To make Sensei your spouse, you must build her affection of you high. While she's your partner you must talk to her often. Also, use her special ability to choose jobs you want and then complete them with her. If you're fighting she will criticize you if you fight poorly so use blunt attacks. You should also go to the dojo every night and fight the 2 guys there with blunt attacks. It will raise her affection too. Once affection is high enough, go to her house to speak with Sensei and an extra option will appear. Choose it for living together with her. She will accept and she will be your spouse respectably. Now all you have to do is clear the game with her as your spouse and you will get both the trophy and alternate costume.
