Towards the 100th floor and beyond!
Pretty long platinum (over 100 hours game), which requires patience and some playing skill. We have a total of 54 trophies (2 ad-hoc, but can also be obtained in single), of which 3 missing (Not on my watch!, Beta Tester, Memories).
Platinum can be achieved in one single game (the difficulty has no influence on the trophies), although it is much easier to do it in two playthroughs. We haven't encountered any bug-afflicted trophies. The game is in English, as are the names of the trophies.
For questions and advice you can comment on the article or visit the Facebook pages Soultricks.com e Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment.
What kind of game is it? Review link: HERE
Where do I start?
There are basically 3 steps to follow before reaching platinum (this is the meaning of this introductory walktrough). Obviously this is purely indicative information and everyone is free to follow the path they prefer. To quickly find a single trophy, press “ctrl” + “f” and search the page.
After the introductory part in the Hollow Area, play Infinity Moment up to floor 90. At this stage it is necessary:
- get the last attack in all end floor boss fights (trophy Beta Tester); if in the final summary you have not obtained the last attack or one of the participants is dead (trophy Not on my watch!), press the home button and restart the battle (otherwise you would have to replay all the plans to get the trophy). Don't sell bonuses from the last attack! The name of the bonus appears at the bottom of the end-of-fight summary
- have in the account 100 million col (thus obtaining the trophy Billionaire)
- maximize relationships with the game's heroines (trophies Don't Cheat Daddy e Memories): it is advisable to bring at least Strea to level 5 in this phase.
You will unlock the trophy Beater and the trophies related to the victory over the bosses of floors 76-90 (see Infinity Moment Boss Fight).
At this point, move on to playing Hollow Fragment, both the main quest and the side quests with the heroines of Infinity Moment. Once this is done you will earn the trophies related to the bosses of this phase of the game (see Hollow Area Trophies).
Return to Arc Sophia and complete the remaining 10 floors. In addition to the trophies related to the bosses (see Boss Fight Infinity Moment), you will unlock Not on my watch! e Beta tester. Now replay the last battle with the various heroines (by reloading the save or from the option in the main menu), to get the necessary images for the trophy Memories and to the hidden trophy Absolute Sword. You can also decide at any time to maximize and "materialize" your relationships with the heroines, to unlock trophies: Flash, Beast Tamer, Master Macer, Fairy, Sniper, Treasure Hunter. Obtained all the images and all the relationships you will unlock: Don't cheat, daddy e Memories.

Up to the 97th floor you must always follow 3 steps to meet the boss: defeat an NM monster, carry out a quest and find the monster's room (the steps to follow are clearly indicated in the “Guild” menu). Then you can access the pre-battle meeting and choose a partner (it is advisable to use one of the heroines with whom to maximize the bond). There are no big strategies to follow in this part; if a boss is difficult for you, try to increase the level of your character and take with you the various healing crystals (if you have not unlocked the trophy Billionaire, it is recommended to use only tools found in dungeons). Beware of traps (marked in red) on floors above 95.
Defeat The Kaiser Dragon
Defeat the boss of floor 98. Linked to the story.
The block to the central palace must now be removed through two crystals, which can be found in the side towers. It is a slightly more difficult plan than the previous ones, so prepare yourself well; watch out for the traps when you activate the crystals.
Defeat Rulers Of Hell
Defeat the boss of floor 99. Linked to the story.
We are now at a somewhat particular level, where more bosses meet: the first 4 are quite simple, the fifth is a bit more difficult and requires a partner of a good level and different healing tools to deal with any eventuality. Always remember to heal allies and be careful not to let them die so as not to have to restart the fight. Check the "Last Attack" bonus at the end of each of the bosses.
Defeat the boss of floor 100. Linked to the story.
It will take some time to complete this plan, as we have 4 bosses here too (expect an hour of battle, on average). It is recommended that you get to this point at level 120 or higher; Also, keep your distance from enemies when they are about to attack with their abilities. Use the parade in time and try to keep an eye on the life of the allies (especially in the second fight). Bring lots of healing tools and get to this boss in top form to take less time.
Not on my watch!
No member of the Attack Team must die. Pay attention to the summary at the end of the battles and remember: the game over only comes if Kirito or his partner dies!
You must get the "Last Attack" bonus against each end-of-floor boss fight. Another trophy in which the slightest inattention can cost hours and hours of play. Always check the summary at the end of the battle and do not sell the bonus items obtained.

PoH must be defeated. Simple to obtain, no use spoilers.
Defeat the boss of the Void Area

Tough boss, who poisons and blinds our characters. Dodging is the best choice, just as having many healing tools can be very helpful. The recommended character level must be above 120.
Defeat the boss of the Outer World Area
Defeat the Outer World Area boss. Connected to the story.
Three fights against this boss: Perplexed Alien Forest; Throne Room for Review; Queen's Chamber. During the third fight, if you take a long time, there will also be tough allies. With a level above 120 and constant monitoring of Philia's health it shouldn't be too problematic.
Defeat the boss of the Control Area

Boss who targets the player and dodges attacks; skills must be used with caution. Be careful not to leave Philia in the front line when the opponent uses their skills.

Trophy series that will take time and patience. For dating-related trophies, maximize relationships with: Asuna, Silica, Lisbeth, Leafa, Sinon, Philia, and Strea.
Maximize relationship with Asuna. See the trophy Don't cheat, daddy.
Maximize relationship with Silica. See the trophy Don't cheat, daddy.
Maximizing relationship with Lisbeth. See the trophy Don't cheat, daddy.
Maximize relationship with Leafa. See the trophy Don't cheat, daddy.
Maximize relationship with Sinon. See the trophy Don't cheat, daddy.
Maximize relationship with Philia. See the trophy Don't cheat, daddy.
Don't cheat, daddy
Maximize relationships with the seven heroines: Asuna, Leafa, Lisbeth, Philia, Silica, Sinon and Strea.
Recommended to dedicate yourself to Strea in phase A. You need to reach affinity level 5, Approval Perfect match (= / = Mood Level 5). To increase affinity, you need to pair up with each girl and go out with her. It is important to chat in the meeting places on floor 76 (essential to also increase the Mood Level and obtain the CG images; making the heroines happy also increases their affinity with you, see the trophy Memories): near the fountain, on the benches, sitting at the bar (table for two), Kirito's room, dark street (in the market area, where the fortune teller with the crystal ball is), near the statue in front of the hotel. When the yellow balloon appears above your partner, quickly turn around to talk to her. To find out how to answer, check the happiness indicator below. When it goes up, the answer is correct. Conversations are insignificant and it is difficult to understand the right answer. Generally the rule applies that pressing the R key is not wrong; when the indicator doesn't go up by pressing R, the right answer was circle (O). Each heroine has her own phrases; the advice is to write down the keywords of the questions that require you to answer with the O key.
Save 100 million Cols. Sell items, perform missions and open chests to accumulate money. Be careful not to sell the “Last Attack” bonuses before you get the trophy Beta tester.
Lisbeth Smith Shop's most loyal customer!
Successfully upgrade your weapons 200 times. Failed upgrades don't count. Improving different stats of ever-changing weapons increases your chances of success and consumes fewer materials.
Complete 80 Hollow missions in the Hollow Area. It is recommended to carry out these missions while keeping the ad hoc connection open (see trophy Teaming up is not that bad).
High-rank test player
100 of the 114 Implement Element Researches must be completed.
Teaming up is not that bad
Play online for at least 20 hours. It is not necessary to have a friend with PS Vita. You can start an ad-hoc game and play alone until you get the trophy.
Thank you for playing
Complete the game after 100 hours of play. It does not require as many hours in addition to those required to carry out all the other activities. After the game ends, you can use the time left to grind up to level 150 (MMOs that use a level system are unfair that way) or unlock the ad-hoc trophy (Teaming up is not that bad)
Find all collectibles for the gallery (initially not visible in the menu). Almost all the CG images are related to the story, the others are obtained after the appointments with the heroines. We therefore have different types of images (9 Asuna, 8 Lisbeth, 8 Silica, 8 Leafa, 8 Sinon, 4 Yui, 8 Strea, 7 Philia, 2 for S **** and one for **** [see Absolute Sword], Hollow Kirito, Buffet and Party):- linked to the story: they are unlocked as you progress through the story; complete the Hollow Area immediately after the boss of floor 90 - endings: unlocked by finishing the game together with a different partner; you have to challenge the final boss with all partners - S **** event: you have to find S ****. After teleporting to the Perplexed Alien Forest, head back to the Triumphal Room of the Valet. Go from Narrow Path to Present Offerings. Search and find S **** (the initial of the name will make you understand who she is when you see her). Leave it and come back a couple of times to activate an event, after which its two images will be unlocked
- bed: there are images for the bed scene with each of the heroines that Kirito can flirt with (Asuna, Lisbeth, Silica, Leafa, Sinon, Strea, Philia). By following the conversation tips (see Don't cheat, daddy), increase the mood of the heroine on duty up to Mood Level 5. Now go to the hotel, enter the room and exit. Turn immediately to your partner and choose the “Bridal Carry” option (this is the easiest way to avoid being seen by the other characters, who would put the girl to shame by making her return to Mood Level 1). The Mood Level will go up to level 6. Without further ado, go back to your room immediately: the word “Mood Level 7” should appear (if it does not appear it is likely that the level has dropped to 1: you have been seen by Asuna or someone else! ). Now approach the bed (do not let the girl get out) and a further conversation should start at this point. Almost all the answers are R and, if the affinity level is higher than 3, it is almost impossible not to fill the bar even if you miss a couple of them (but remember the mistakes because the sentences can be repeated). Good fun!
MMOs that use a level system are unfair that way
Reach level 150. You have to grind a lot. Easier to catch up with a friend.
Secret Trophies [SPOILER]
Defeat **** (asterisks to avoid spoilers). After completing the game for the first time, you must face the final boss again (from the main menu or by loading the save), possibly with a different partner (for the trophy Memories). Select "Yes" when prompted and face the new rival; pay attention to his special abilities. When his life bar reaches half, you will unlock the trophy and related CG images.
This game is not for fun
During a multiplayer match, defeat 100 HNM creatures. It is recommended to obtain it while playing for the trophy Teaming up is not that bad and write down how many creatures have killed themselves. HNM cratures appear when rank 3 is reached for each of the 5 Hollow areas. It's a tough trophy and it's best to do it with other players. Unfortunately it is difficult to find friends in the area to grind together; however, I will make available a facebook page (just created at the time of writing the guide) to look for partners in your area: Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment. If there are many players, an ad hoc group can also be created.
Collect all trophies
After unlocking all the other trophies, here's the coveted platinum. Congratulations!
