Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV is a spin-off game within the Final Fantasy XV universe. You play as a Hunter tasked with finding and destroying Daemonfish. The main story gameplay involves some fishing but largely focuses on boss battles using a crossbow. Most of the trophies, on the other hand, require a lot of fishing. This is Square-Enix’s first VR game. As of the time of writing this guide, it is an incredibly glitchy game. Working around the glitchiness can take a while to get used to, but once you understand the game it’s fairly easy to play. The Platinum Trophy can be obtained in 15 hours, or possibly even less, but the random elements of the game (whether fish will bite the lure or not) can increase the time needed by a large margin.

 

General Tips:

 

I highly suggest you use two Playstation Move controllers. The game is technically playable with a Dualshock 4; but fishing is highly dependent on the accuracy of your casts. I found it nearly impossible to cast accurately with the Dualshock 4. Also, while using the Dualshock 4, your characters arms block most of the screen.

 

Hold Posted Image (Posted Image on Dualshock 4) to recenter your view. Every time I entered a new area, the game always placed me away from my character for some reason. If your hands are black you are far away from your character. The game always has you attached to the character model, so it’s essential to be where their head would be for accurate gameplay.

 

Some fish are shy to bite but will usually bite eventually. On one of the hunts I found a fish that wouldn’t bite at all, leading me to believe it may have been a glitch. It took me 3 hours to complete this hunt. I do not think this is an intended mechanic. If you’re having trouble with a hunt try leaving and restarting the hunt until the fish is in a different location.

 

If you are having trouble catching a fish from far away, some fishing holes are accessible from multiple angles.

 

While on a hunt, you need to use a specific lure to catch the target fish. Most other fish will bite anything. I used the Fatal Roulette: Ahriman lure for most of the regular fish. Cactuars are the exception and will only bite 10,000 Needle lures.

 

Don’t spend much gil on optional (clothing) items. If you spend too much gil you may not have enough to buy all of the tackle with hunt rewards. This doesn’t make it impossible to buy everything, but it may require you to do online tournaments to get more gil. If needed, I would suggest Major League. Not many people play this game so it’s easy to place high enough in the rankings to earn at least 3,000 gil. Unfortunately you have to wait until the tournament is over to collect the reward.

Step 1: Story
Complete all of the story missions. After the introduction you are brought to your cabin. Enter your car to access the next mission. At one point you will be required to participate in a tournament to continue. Afterwards you are free to do missions until reaching the end. The story missions consist of catching enough fish until the daemon fish is lured out of hiding. Once it appears your rod/reel will be replaced with a crossbow and you'll need to battle the daemon fish to weaken it in three phases then you're able to "reel" it in.

Krypse Posted ImagePosted Image
Bythos Posted ImagePosted Image

 

Step 2: Hunts
Complete every hunt. Like story missions, these are accessible from inside of your car. The required fish will show as red when you use your sonar. You need to use a specific lure or set of lures which are shown on the hunt page while selecting which hunt to go on. Every hunt must be completed to gain access to the next level of hunts. Use your money from hunts to purchase rods, reels, and lures. Some lures are obtained as rewards from hunts, so you can save some money that way.

 

There are random objects on the ground (like a bucket or banana peel) in each area. Keep your eye out and examine these. Most of these are brought back to your cabin and placed in random spots. You only need to examine one that is brought back for the Home Sweet Home Posted Image trophy.

 

During this step you should unlock:

Alleyway Jack Posted Image

 

Step 3: Fish
Catch all of the fish in each area. When in an area, open the menu, go to tackle, and press Posted Image to open the collection menu where you can see which fish you have gotten in that area. It can be a bit tricky to catch everything, depending on your luck. Fish up everything in the area and if you haven’t gotten everything then re-enter the area until it’s cloudy or raining. Seaweed and boots don’t appear on sonar, but they will glow yellow for a short time if you land in a fishing hole nearby. If you are having trouble finding a tin can in an area where they appear, turn rumble on and the controller will rumble when you are near if nothing else is there.

Caught 50 fish.

See “Ace Angler”

13S1d0b22.pngAttaboy, Small Fry! trophy_bronze.png
Performed your first excellent cast.

To perform an excellent cast simply land in any of the circular spots in your fishing area. You can find these spots by holding down L2.png and pressing Cross18x18.png to use your sonar.

303.jpgHook, Line, and Sinker trophy_bronze.png
Caught your first fish.

Simply catch your first fish.

76b.jpgA New Challenger trophy_bronze.png
Participated in your first tournament.

This is necessary to advance the story. After the “Unsettling Shadows” story mission you will gain access to the Torney option in the car menu. The first time you select it you will enter a mission in which you will face Noctis in a tournament. You only need to catch a few fish to beat him. After you complete the mission you will get the trophy. You do not need to participate in an actual online Torney to get the trophy.

d22.jpgThe One That Got Away trophy_bronze.png
Lost your first whopper.

Simply lose a large fish. The game makes it very easy to reel fish in so if you find that you haven’t received this naturally just get a bite on a big fish and then don’t follow the left/right prompts will reeling one in.

201.jpgHome Sweet Home trophy_bronze.png
Decorated your cabin for the first time.

While in any area you will see random objects on the ground. Often, after you examine one, it will seem to disappear. These objects are brought back to your cabin and placed automatically. The trophy will unlock when you get back to the cabin after examining one of these objects.

Thank you!  I think I got them fixed.

I cant understand how this game take this long if a lot of people are able to get this done in little over 1 day. I get this is random though.

I think it can definitely be done quicker.  I'm not done with my plat so I'll report back with the hours once I finish.  I'm trying to get through it faster than Moomba.  It took him 15 hours and even he said it could be faster. Sometimes you get to a location and the fish are SUPER easy to get.  Other times it seems like nothing will bite or that it takes longer for them to bite. 

 

I'll definitely update once I finish my plat and have an exact time.  I got distracted with Horizon but I'm gonna play more of this this weekend.
