How to Get Platinum Trophy

The platinum trophy process in Sea of Stars is reminiscent of old-school SNES games. That’s not necessarily a bad thing when you consider the most you’ll do is hunt some treasure and kill a couple of dozen bosses. (Minus the What a Technique trophy. That one’s hell and back again incarnate.) You’re probably looking to go to every dungeon and/or notable location and battle every enemy while looking for hidden treasure.

You can be expected to spend roughly 25 hours in the game if you’re looking to finish the main story. You can double the hours if you want the Platinum with all the extra stuff you need to do. (Plus all the level grinding.)

The Boss Slugged, No, Wait!, Stretch Quest, and Solstice Power are story trophies you will inevitably get as you progress through the main story.

The rest of the trophies are acquired through completion, exploration, and finding bobbles scattered in different areas. If you really like to run all the edges of the playable area for the chance at hidden treasure, you’re going to enjoy the Measure Hunter Silver trophy. You’ll want to look for the ALL CLEAR silver star on locations to tell you you have everything that can be collected from that location. This can be seen from the Overworld map. If there are items left still to collect, you can always PING the Falcon-Eyed Parrot on the location to give you a general idea of the location of any missing items.

We have confirmation from the developers that there are no missable trophies. This means that there won’t be trophy-related items in places where an item can be missed and won’t be accessible again for the rest of the game.

The game has these relics that you can turn on or off at any given time. Think of them as earnable modifiers that you can implement to change values that affect your gameplay. The What a Technique! Gold trophy asks you to defeat 10 bosses with the Artful Gambit relic on. What’s the relic do, you ask? Well, it makes it so that everything in the game instantly kills you in one hit. But you are spared an instant death if you successfully block the attack, and the damage you receive is a poultry 1 hitpoint. There is no room for mistakes if you are gunning for this trophy. Good luck!

You can choose which bosses to go up against. Also, it’s not like you are required to go through the whole game with it on. You only need it to be on during a boss battle for progress to count. You can switch it off after the battle. Small comforts but comforts nonetheless.

Important: The Artful Gambit relic is acquired very late in the game. To start doing this trophy, it is very likely that you’ll have to do a New Game+ run with the relic equipped. This is also slightly good since your stats from the previous playthrough carry over to the new run.

To get the Master Angler Bronze trophy, you’ll need to catch every fish species at least once. Fishing is one of the most fun side activities the game has to offer. The act of fishing is a highly involved process that takes out much of the RNG associated with the activity. First of all, you can see the silhouette of the species of aquatic creature from your view above. You can also change the trajectory of your lure so that it lands exactly where you want it to be. Preferably right next to the fish you are aiming for. And that’s where the fun part begins.

Reeling the fish in is a battle in itself, as you will be closing the distance while ensuring that the line doesn’t snap. There is an ever-shifting “safe zone” that you’ll need to keep the fish within, and that’ll keep the line from snapping. Reeling in the fish outside of this zone will cause the line to strain and eventually snap. Should the fish go outside the safe zone, you can use the left thumb stick to steer the fish toward where you want it to go without the threat of snapping the line.

It’s going to take some practice to catch some of the more difficult species, but the fun nature of it might be enough to see you through.

To get the Bouncy Bronze trophy, you’ll need to bounce the moonerang attack 25 times in a row. This one is going to take some time to get the timing down pat. After every return, the Moonerang accelerates before reaching a fixed speed. For context, getting a dozen bounces with the attack requires the player to have fast reflexes. Sustaining that effort might even require some luck. But of course, player skill is a major factor to consider. You can get this one as soon as you fight the first boss or after 100 hours of play. Best you pick a target that won’t go down after 3-4 bounces.

Similarly, the Lock’s Myth Bronze trophy asks you to break 50 locks across multiple battles. Locks are comparable to poise in Souls games. If you hit an enemy with the right attack types, you will break their stance, forcing them to skip their upcoming turn. Team composition is crucial for this one if you want to do this as quickly as possible.

Recipes in Sea of Stars range from simple to complex and will require the players to gather the necessary ingredients to create. You can create dishes while on the campfire. Do keep in mind that your maximum carrying capacity is 10 dishes. You won’t be able to create any dishes if you reach capacity. The Gustative Completion Bronze trophy asks you to cook every recipe at least once. Considering that it’s a Bronze trophy, you may have a harder time collecting the ingredients and not the recipes themselves.

While we’re on the subject of the campfire, the Well Read (to) trophy asks you to listen to all the stories told by Teaks, who you find during your campfire breaks as you are contemplating which dishes to cook.

And that’s everything we have for this Sea of Stars trophy guide. All in all, you’re looking at 60-70 hours on the safe side, if you’re looking to get every trophy, and that’s not including the time you’ll spend in New Game+ looking for 10 bosses to defeat. Old-school fans are going to love this objective-focused Platinum trophy challenge.

Sea of Stars is out now on PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
