Playstation Trophy Hunting: My Eleventh to Twentieth Platinum Trophies.

Back in February I talked about the first ten platinum trophies that I had earnt, which you can read about here. Well, this month, I earnt my twentieth platinum trophy; so it seemed like the perfect time to about the ten platinum trophies I had earnt since February- let’s take a look!

11. Dancing All Night, Persona 4: Dancing All Night.

The first trophy I earnt, since the last post, was for the rhythm game, Person 4: Dancing All Night. This PS Vita game is a sequel to Persona 4, a fantastic JRPG. In Dancing All Night, you reunite with your friends from Persona 4 to take part in a music festival. Naturally, there is a new mystery to resolve- this time involving disappearing idols and a new shadow realm to explore. The music of the Persona games is always fantastic and I love Persona 4’s soundtrack, which makes the music perfect for a rhythm game. As far as earning the platinum trophy, it wasn’t too difficult to do. For the most part, you just have to play through the story and then play through all the songs in free dance mode. You will have to play a few songs on hard mode but since you can pick the songs, you can just choose your favourites. I think the hardest trophy was Perfectionist, which requires you to get a 50%+ Perfect clear on a song, on at least hard difficulty. This trophy just took a lot of practice but anyone who is really good at rhythm games won’t have too much difficulty with it. Overall, getting the platinum for Persona 4: Dancing All Night was too difficult but it did provide a little bit of a challenge.

12. Master of the Invizimals, Invizimals: The Alliance.

The twelfth platinum trophy was for Invizimals: The Alliance, a game that I talk a lot about in this ‘Gotta Play ‘Em All!’ post. Basically, Invizimals is a series of games that was Sony’s take on the Pokemon games. It was a little bit ambitious, trying to use Augmented Reality cards with the PS Vita. Unfortunately, the developers were a little bit too ambitious and the game didn’t quite work out as intended. In fact, the biggest challenge in earning this trophy is trying to finish the games whilst fighting with the AR gameplay. If you are able to fight through it, then the platinum is quite easy to earn. All you have to do is play through the game’s story and then spend a couple of hours getting your alliance level to level 30. Overall, the game had promise, even if it feels like you are fighting the game mechanics most of the time but getting the Master of the Invizimalstrophy is fairly easy, if a little grindy.

13. One Ring to build them all, Lego Lord of the Rings.

Who doesn’t love a Lego game? Apparently most Lego games have fairly easy trophy lists. So, I thought I would be in for an easy time, after all there are no missable trophies or difficulty based ones in Lego Lord of the Rings.However this is me, I’m talking about and apparently I decided to make this game a little harder and a bit more grindy for myself. You see, I bought the red bricks that multiplied the value of the studs… but didn’t realise I had to activate them in the menu , until I was trying to earn the studs to get the x10 multiplier red brick. Yes, I played the levels repeatedly in order to earn millions of studs. Well, the trophies became much easier to earn once I activated the red bricks!

14. Perfectionist, Tearaway.

This next platinum trophy technically took me six years to earn! In fact Tearaway was the first game I ever played on my PS Vita and it turned out to be a great introduction to the system. It is a platformer that uses all of the Vita’s features, including the touchscreen and camera and I really enjoyed my time playing through the story. But back in 2015, I took one look at the trophy list and saw the trophies that required you not to die on certain levels and decided I would move on to a different game. Fast forward to 2021 and I decided I wanted to finish Tearaway’s trophy list. This was a bit of a challenge for me, as I am terrible at platformers.Still, I preserved and in April 2021, I finally 100% completed Tearaway.

15. Wizardry Whiz, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered.

We’ve reached the halfway point through this list and you are probably wondering, where are the PS4 games? So far, all the platinum trophies I’ve earnt are for PS Vita games. Basically, from February to April I was playing Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, an incredible JRPG that has a lot of personality and heart. Overall, its trophy list wasn’t difficult, it just took a lot of time to complete. For example, in order to earn the platinum trophy, you will have to win at least 1,000 battles, tame 250 familiars and create 120 different items using alchemy. None of the tasks are difficult but will require a lot of time to complete. I will say that this was a great trophy list as it got you to fully explore the world of Ni No Kuni and take part in every side activity. Wizardry Whiz is one of the platinum trophies that I’m especially proud of earning, it took me nearly ninety hours to do so but I enjoyed my time doing so.

16. Full Moon, The Wolf Among Us.

After playing through Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered, I decided that I wanted to play a couple of shorter games. The first game I played was The Wolf Among Us, a Telltale game that I’ve been meaning to play for quite some time. This was a brilliant game, which also had an extremely easy trophy list. All you have to do is play through the story, experience the consequence of all of your choices and pick up some collectibles. This was a nice, short but sweet experience.

17. What If?, Life is Strange.

After The Wolf Among Us, I decided to move onto another adventure game, Life is Strange. Again, this was another game I had been meaning to play but never seemed to get around to playing. I really loved playing Life is Strange. It had an interesting story and I liked the time manipulation mechanic. As for the trophy list, it is pretty straightforward- play through the story and take all the photographs in each episode. Some of the photographs require you to perform certain actions but if you explore each area in each episode, you will get the photos. Even if you do miss some, you can replay any episode you’ve already played through, making all the trophies unmissable.

18. Done, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.

Earlier this year, I put up a poll for readers of this blog to pick the next game I would play and the game that was chosen was Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. Wow, what a game. This is honestly one of those games that is difficult to talk about, as it is something that you really have to experience. It wasn’t an overly long or difficult game which is also reflected in the trophy list. In fact, apart from the platinum trophy and one other trophy, all trophies are tied to story progression. You can miss out on the Stories from the North trophy, as it requires you to collect all of the lorestones which are missable if you don’t fully explore the various areas in the game. Overall, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was a fantastic game and one I would recommend people try out.

19. Biomutant platinum trophy, Biomutant.

The next game is one that I have conflicted feelings for. I was really looking forward to Biomutant but unfortunately the game didn’t quite live up to expectations. I did write a review for it a couple of months ago, which you can read here if you want to hear more about my experiences with it. As far as the trophy list goes, it is pretty much your standard open world trophy list. There are trophies for the story, exploration, side quests and collectibles. It wasn’t overly challenging but it was grindy in places. The one trophy that stood out to me as extremely grindy was Bugologist, which requires you to collect twenty Glittemoths, a bug that seemed to only spawn in one location during the day time. Overall, the game and the trophy list was alright but nothing really special.

20. All Finished!, Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7.

We’ve reached the final trophy for this post! Like with Lego Lord of the Rings, Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7 was a good game with an easy trophy list… especially if you use the red brick stud multipliers. It will come as no surprise to you that it took me less time to platinum this game when compared with Lego Lord of the Rings. Overall, I had a good time with the game and it was a nice little platinum trophy to earn, especially after Biomutant’s trophy.

And we’ve reached the end of this post! I’m pretty pleased with my trophy hunting progress. I think I’ve got the right balance of easy platinum trophies and those trophies that are either a little more difficult or take a bit more time to complete. At the moment, I am trying to platinum my first PS3 game, The Saboteur. I enjoy keeping you guys updated on my trophy hunting quest, so I will post another summary once I have earnt my thirtieth platinum trophy. Until then, happy gaming and I’ll talk to you soon!

    1. Thanks! I only started going for platinum trophies last year and I was a bit surprised with how much I enjoyed trophy hunting. A couple of these did take a while to earn, like Ni No Kuni and Biomutant, but I only ever go for the platinum trophy if I’m enjoying the game.
