Endings guide

From PSP2i Wiki

This guide serves as a simple checklist to achieve all the endings in both episode 1 and episode 2. The best endings are required to unlock certain movies at the movie theater, certain partner characters, certain missions, and achieve various different titles and modules.

Endings for episode 1 are dictated by a hidden friendship level point value, while episode 2 requires specific actions by the player to be carried out, although a friendship level point value still exists to be able to carry out some of these criteria.

If the story has already been completed, only the dialogue options from the mission acts themselves are available, but the player can replay the missions while picking the correct dialogue options. Once the player feels they have earned enough points in episode 1, they can replay Chapter 10 - Act 1 until the end and hope they have achieved the ending they want.

For episode 2, all endings are earned through specific criteria, so the player can know if they are able to earn the ending they want, and also choose to get certain endings by picking certain dialogue options or fulfilling certain criteria.

Note that any dialogue options which do not affect friendship level are not listed in this article, so don't freak out if the option you're looking at isn't listed here.

Ending criteria[edit | edit source]

Episode 1[edit | edit source]

Ending Criteria
Normal Friendship level with Emilia is 183 or less.
Good Friendship level with Emilia is 184 or more.
Best Friendship level with Emilia is 217 or more.
S-Rank clear in all story missions for chapter 1 through 9.[1]
  1. Not including side stories.

The below dialogue checklist will allow the player to earn the best ending on their first play through if all missions are S-Rank cleared the first time. Choosing other options will lower the friendship level by the point value, allowing all endings to be earned on the same character.

Episode 2[edit | edit source]

Ending Criteria
Bad Defeat the boss in Chapter 4 - Act 2
Normal Clear Chapter 5 - Act 3 without viewing all key scenes.
Best Clear Chapter 5 - Act 3 after viewing all key scenes.

If the criteria for the best ending is met, the player may still earn the normal ending by choosing the incorrect dialogue option in Chapter 5 - Act 1, to avoid viewing the key scene. This also works even if the best ending has already been achieved.

Key scenes[edit | edit source]

Key scenes are special cutscenes which are played after the completion of a chapter in episode 2 if the player's friendship level with Nagisa is high enough, and a specific dialogue option has been chosen during one of the chapter's acts. They usually involve some sort of flashback or dialogue between Nagisa and Wynarl.

There are 5 different key scenes, one for each chapter before the final chapter. This guide will highlight which options are specifically required for the key scenes, although if the player has not amassed enough friendship level with Nagisa, the key scene will not play regardless.

Chapter Friendship level
1 10 or more
2 22 or more
3 34 or more
4 35 or more
5 38 or more

Episode 1[edit | edit source]

As S-Rank clears are required for the best ending in episode 1, the S-Rank criteria can be seen in parentheses () next to the act numbers for each chapter.

  1. If the player does not have at least 38 friendship level points and/or has seen the previous 4 key scenes, this dialogue option will not appear, and the best ending will not be achievable.
Key scene 5 during Chapter 5 - Act 2. Note that this does appear in Act 1, but it will only appear in Act 2 if the best ending has been fulfilled

If the final dialogue option is presented to the player, and they wish to achieve the normal ending, they must pick "Let's prepare for the worst.", which will avoid achieving the best ending.

Depending on the ending that will be obtained, Chapter 5 - Act 2's cutscenes will be presented from different perspectives: For the normal ending, the act will explore the feelings of the Little Wing crew, while the best ending will explore the feelings of Nagisa and Wynarl.

If episode 2 has already been completed, it is not necessary to replay Chapter 5 - Act 2 after picking the desired key dialogue option after Chapter 5 - Act 1; skipping to Chapter 5 - Act 3 will still give the player their desired ending, although they may miss key cutscenes they may not have seen before in Chapter 5 - Act 2.

Side stories[edit | edit source]

Side stores in episode 2 do not affect the friendship level towards Nagisa.
