For achievement hunter of Trek to Yomi, this guide will show you how to get every achievement in game, let’s check it out.
Before we start the guide, I would encourage you to play through the first playthrough blind as to 100% the game it will take a minimum of three (3) playthroughs (without save manipulating).
There are only three endings (and a secret one) that can be obtained in each playthrough. To be optimal I would recommend doing your first and blind playthrough on Ronin (hard) difficultly, otherwise, you may have to do a fourth playthrough.
The game isn’t too difficult and is quite forgiving making the Trek To Yomi an achievable 100%.
The first playthrough took me five (5) hours and subsequent playthroughs took around three (3) hours.
Rough Estimate Time to 100%: 12 Hours
The estimate is based off three (3) playthroughs. The first being the blind Ronin (Hard) playthrough. The second I would recommend is the one-hit playthrough and the last playthrough on any difficultly of your choosing collecting all the collectables and upgrades.
Anyways, good luck.
Young blood – Kill your first enemy
End of kindergarten – Finish Chapter 1
After the storm – Finish Chapter 2
Dust and ashes – Finish Chapter 3
Fleeting destiny – Finish Chapter 4
Afterlife traveler – Finish Chapter 5
Trek’s end? – Finish Chapter 6
Samurai dies twice – Complete the Game
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken– Complete the game in Ronin mode.
This is hard mode and many encounters in the game are much more difficult
Unstoppable – Complete the game on Kensei mode.
Kensei mode is unlocked when you complete the game once on any difficulty. This is the one-hit kill and death mode, it will require you to learn the boss patterns to a high degree. I didn’t find any significant difficulties with this mode after completing the game on Kensei mode.
Follow your Heart – Choose Yuki at the end of chapter 6 after the boss battle
Follow your mind – Choose Duty at the end of chapter 6 after the boss battle
Follow your blade – Choose Revenge at the end of chapter 6 after the boss battle
Early End – Kill the boss in Chapter 3. This is the secret ending. After you kill the boss you can still continue with the story in chapter 4. I would try to get this achievement with “No, that’s not possible…” You will only get one attempt per playthrough at this.
I’ll put this spear into… – Kill Sadatame without getting hit in Chapter 2
That woman is a demon! – Kill Aiko Demon without getting hit in Chapter 4
Forgive me, sensei – Kill Sanjuro Demon without getting hit in Chapter 5
Clash in a mirror – Kill Hiroki Demon without getting hit in Chapter 6
No, that’s not possible… – Kill Kagerou Shogun without getting hit in Chapter 3.
I would recommend to manually backup the game before attempting this challenge as once you die you will be sent to chapter 4.
Leave no stone unturned – Find all lore collectables
Dedicated Collector – Collect all upgrades
I used this guide to get the achievements:
This will come in handy – Collect your first upgrade.
Men-Kaeshi-Dou – Execute 50 successful counters
Bloodlust – Perform 50 finishers. This is a staple on Ronin difficultly.
Malicious mischief – Kill 10 enemies without using any weapon. These are just environmental kills. This will come through naturally
Big Bertha – Kill 3 enemies at once with the Ozutsu. There will be parts of chapter 4 where there are enemies who are all in a line. I would recommend doing this either in Easy or Kensei.
Untouchable – Complete a whole chapter without dying and using a shrine. Self-explanatory, although I would attempt this on the easiest difficultly in chapter 2. Chapter 1 has a shrine that cannot be avoided.
