Welcome to the trophy guide for √Letter: Last Answer. This can also be considered a walkthrough and may be used for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam. Achievements for Steam and Xbox are in almost all cases the same as the PlayStation 4 Trophies. A roadmap is provided in the stages below.

Follow us on twitter for the latest news and giveaways.

Stage 1 – Cursed Letter Route


Unlike most other VNs there is no CGs or Tips to collect. Root Letter also is very straightforward! Pretty much it’s only letter replies that determine your route, besides that there’s only one way forward and you can use Think or Guidebook to find out what to do and where to go. Even playing blind your runs will look next to identical to the ones below. Though certain endings are locked until you beat the game once, as Letter Replies will unlock when an ending is cleared. So to start you’ll be doing the The Cursed Letter Route as the guide is done with letter replies in chronological order. Chapter Names are not relevant until Chapter’s 9 and 10 to know the routes your on, so they’re the only listed names.

Note: Root Letter The Last Answer is considerably faster to plat than the earlier Root Letter as you don’t need Shimanekko and Chapter 8 is skippable this time!

Stage 2 – The Princess of Himegamori Forest Route


From playthrough 2 and on, you’ll have unlocked the ability to skip chapters 1 through 8 right into the Route Ending chapters! To access the skip feature though, you’ll need to work your way back to what I entitled the “Tutorial End” in stage 1. This is because the Skip feature is located in your smartphone menu. You’ll be answering letter replies then skipping until you get to a Chapter 9. When starting a new game too you get the choice of voice over. Your choice of who doesn’t matter but for the guides purpose it was always Aya.

Note: You May have unlocked both trophies for using the check command 100+ times last run. If not don’t fret as it’s improbable to finish all the playthroughs without doing so. But for guides sake the trophy counter from here on will start at Trophy 13/31.
