Welcome to the trophy guide for AI: The Somnium Files. 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 – Play the game.


AI: The Somnium Files is a game all about branching options and choices and that’s where the joy of the game lies! So this stage will not give you a direction to play, so you play however you see fit. What this stage will do is outline the details of each day, their locations and somniums. Since you have the freedom of jumping wherever to, the days will be listed in numerical order and the day’s name will be then listed in alphabetical order.

As for the platinum, AI: The Somnium Files is really straightforward, there are a few trophies that require some collectibles, interactions, or witnessing but those are of little difficulty and effort. As for the plat this guide is written in 3 ways:
1. You can follow along and interact with everything and have an easy flowing play.
2. AI:The Somnium Files has a lot of repetitive examinations, like dozens upon dozens upon dozens upon dozens! So instead of wasting game time and examining things meticulously, the guides made it easier! everything with an annotated number, i.e. x2, x3, x4, x5… All add jokes, innuendoes, story, and more. Unless needed for progression, ignore the singular interactive objects, and you`ll get 100% gameplay and bonuses without any wasted time.
3. There is A LOT of gameplay meaning COPIUS amounts of text to follow and read through! Could be a bore for some people. So play the game comepletely blind. After beating it come back and look at your missing trophies! Every trophy has Where and What day to find them on. So then remember that day and visit the day in the Game Stage Guide and quickly nab it!

Use the days listed below as a reference to any missed items to look at or the Somniums for how to complete them too. All missable/collectible trophies will be listed on the days they occur! You could also view the trophy to see the specific information! The only game long trophy is collecting 100 appendix files which will come naturally as 99%, if not all, of those entries come from questioning people. Somniums are listed in usually the shortest routes with collectibles, so everything is smooth sailing. In the Somniums, each choice is listed without TIMIES being used (you`ll know which ones need TIMIES and when to use them, if you have 3 TIMIES and the next interaction nets you one, use one so it’s not wasted), so use them TIMIES as you see appropiate. There is plenty of room with Somniums for remaining time (Except for 2 or 3) so you don’t have to be scrutinous, the BIG choices will be bolded so you know what you should save your good TIMIES for. As for advancing scenes by object interaction, they’re usually listed last in the column so do the bottom interactions (unless you see Thermal, Zoom, X-Ray beforehand in the list). The last tip is, AI doesn’t give a tutorial about shooting scenes, they just throw you into it! There’s QTE’s which are self explantory and there are the shooting segments. Shooting segments are timed! To do these segments, keep the reticle inside the target circle long enough to fill your meter, when it’s fill you’ll be prompted to push .

An overlooked feature but very helpul in larger Somniums like the forest is the map feature! Accessed with the button while in a Somnium. Great for finding interactive objects, and where you are.

That’s about it for the tips, so without further adieu:
*Note: Do the Interactive Objects then the Dialogue, sometimes the scene will go back and forth as it advances. These points will be bolded, continue from the bolded text as you go back and forth between the columns. The days, and locations without any interactions won’t be listed, nor will the Name of the Day as it’s irrelevant here.

*Note 2 – Boss’s Office will not be listing Interactive Objects except for the trophy purpose, as well as some locations that will say ‘none’, as you don’t have to examine for the platinum beside the single trophy. Her office has way to much stuff to check ever single time.

Trophies


 AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES
Obtained all other trophies.


 Resolution Route: END
Finished the final investigation.

AI: The Somnium Files may have branching routes, but some ends will be locked and marked as ‘Classified’ until you finish different routes. The Final investigation is behind the last classified section on Day 6: hakAI which will lead into the epilogue 3 Months Later. This will pop upon completing the epilogue.

All endings are color co-ordinated by the route lines.
Pink >>> Resolution Route: END by completing 3 months later.
Purple>>> Iris Route: END by completing Day 6: kekkAI.
Red>>> Ota Route: END by completing Day 5: syokuzAI.
Yellow>>> Mizuki Route: END by completing Day 6: sanpAI.
Green>>> Annihilation Route: END by completing Day 5: ihAI.


 Dream Documentation Duty: CEO
Found all hidden items in Somnium.

In every Somnium there will be a single hidden item in the form of Aiba. They’re always sitting out in the open and never require prerequisite actions to unlock them. Though sometimes they will be in different ‘sections’ of the Somnium, so you may miss some if you leave a room.

Be careful as Retrying a section will forfeit your collectible you found. But Restarting as long as you’ve reached another checkpoint, won’t. So just really make sure you have it picked up if you redo a section.

All hidden items unlock the “B” counterparts of the Album collectibles. There are 13 in total ! They are (In order of the Album):
Note: You can easily determine location by picture for where they are, no help needed or the rough location by where in the Psync instructions they’re put. The exception to this is PSYNCIN’ IN THE VaiN – Day 3: Iris B as it’s crammed in a small corner. At the Immediate start of the level run into the back left corner to find it!


 

 Appendix Analyst
Collected 100 “Appendix” files.

Appendix files are obtained by information, history, story, anything that you question people have the potential of being an appendix item! So do not rush story events, make sure to ask all the mundane, and pointless sounding questions! As long as you follow that, you will not need to worry about this as you’ll achieve this far before the game is over. If you follow the Trophy Stage above, it lists out where to unlock more than 100 of these entries!

The “Dream Album” refers to all collectibles regarding Somniums. There are 2 types of Dream Album Collectibles: A and B.

Cleared the shooting event at the Warehouse District with no misses.

 I Wish Mine Were That Glorious
Admired the Sagan’s stereo equipment.

During Day 2: saikAI you’ll pay a visit to the Sagan Residence. When you’re there pan all the the way right and you’ll find an interactive Speaker System. You will need to interact with this 5 times for the trophy.

The Speaker System

 Your Name?
Enjoyed a fulfilling chat with Kagami.

One of the running gags in AI: The Somnium Files is Date’s continuing fortgul nature of Kagami’s name. You’ll ask him lots and have this recurring gag, but there is only one set of asking his name that will net you this trophy. While at the Maid Cafe Sunfish Pocket on Day 3: syokubAI you will need to ask him “What’s your name?” for a total of 8 times.


 Bonephilia
X-rayed the Mermaid.

X-raying is a mechanic used in this game to find clues and advance the story but there is an instance where you used it to indulge Date’s desires. While you’re visiting the Maid Cafe Sunfish Pocket on Day 3: gyoukAI click on the Mermaid Waitress and she will have an X-Ray option. You will need to X-Ray her and interact with her skeletal structure a few times for this to pop!


 Cooler Heads Prevail
Kept your cool and did not shoot Saito.

At the end of the game you’re given an ultimatum between two choices: To Shoot Saito and To Not Shoot Saito. Not shooting Saito is the choice on the right, this choice isn’t a miscellaneous one either as it leads to the end of the game as well. So there is no need to ever choose the left option, a bonus is the amazing scene that comes with this trophy!


 Surprisingly Good Together
Discovered the marriage of the yakuza and the nurse.

During the epilogue 3 months later you will need to visit 2 locations and speak with specific people. Firstly, visit the Kumakura Office and talk to Member B and exhaust his options. After the Kumakura Office you’ll need to visit Matsushita Diner. At the Diner converse with the Nurse and exhaust her options as well, popping this trophy!


 The Dream Wanderer
Saw This Man twice in Somnium.

The man this refers to is actually a floating head. This head appears in 2 of Iris’s somniums: PSYCIN’ IN THE MaiN 1 & 2.
In the first Somnium after you Dig at Gate 3, you’ll come to another alley. Before using Crafting Table B, You’ll find a Zombie-esque character named “???” inside a building. You’ll need to interact with it to find the head.


In the second Somnium he’ll be at the very beginning, investigate the Chozuya you start beside.


 Protect Your Head
Had Aiba wear the basket and the pot in Somnium.

This trophy is misleading, as it’s not just a Basket and a Pot you need for the trophy. Looking at the thumbnail you’ll realize you need to wear a Bucket as well.

All 3 of these wearable items are in different Somniums too!
In Date’s Psync; SINKIN’ IN THE BRaiN on Day 1: sigAI you’ll find the basket you need to wear.

In #89’s Psync; PSYNCIN’ IN THE CURTaiN on Day 4 jukkAI you’ll find the pot you need to wear.

You’ll find all of these mentioned in the Trophy Stage aboves Somnium solutions.

Saw three autographs of crazy customers in Somnium.

The only places with autographs in this game is at Matsushita Diner. You’ll learn that far before the Somnium that takes place there. During Day 5: zugAI you’ll psync with Mayumi and enter her mind. A little ways into the Psync unlocking you’ll unlock the portion of the wall with autographs. Interact with them and do all 3 choices for this trophy.


 Interrogation: Implicate Hitomi
Confronted Hitomi with the evidence with no mistakes.
