Murasaki Mist: Akara's Journey Trophy Guide


Posted Image

Introduction:
Murasaki Mist: Akara’s Journey is a PSN Vita title* which was developed by Hollow Games (an appropriate name considering the quality of this title). Here is a description of the game straight from the developer’s website, www.murasakimistthegame.com:
“Murasaki Mist: Akara's Journey is a Hack N' Slash Action RPG developed by Mexican companies Hollow Games and Onirik Game Studio. The Game is to be released around March 15 2016 for Sony Platforms, PS3 and PSVita for the first release. Twelve hours of gameplay, packed with fast paced action a weird, chaging and dramatic story, lots of characters and tons of enemies deliver guaranteed fun and entertainment. The game has been developed in Mexico City by mexican developers and such is full of references to mexican and latinamerican culture. The story itself is as nothing you have played before, though it may seen as normal "kill all demons plot" it quickly transforms inot something more deep and complicated.”
I copied the previous from the website, typos and all.
I got this title on sale and since there were less than ten 100% holders and the trophy descriptions are less than informative, I decided to make a guide. You are welcome :lol
The one trophy that I think will deter most people is Best Gladiator Ever. This requires you to beat around 41 levels of the Gladiator Ring. See that trophy for more information on it.
*(The website of the game says it is playable on PS4, PS3, Vita but the Playstation store just shows Playable On: PS Vita)

Trophies:

X3aAmG.pngGetting better :bronze

Akara's training is paying off

 See Demon Slayer

 

X3aAmG.pngKiller  :bronze

Akara is natural born killer

See Demon Slayer

 

X3aAmG.pngDemon Slayer  :bronze

Akara: A Demon Slayer

I believe these are related to your kill count. I had 802 kills when I got this trophy. Your kills are tracked in the start screen. Since I cannot play this game again to see how to unlock these, please update this thread with the amount of your kills when you unlocked each of the previous trophies.

 

X3aAmG.pngNewborn Gladiator  :bronze

Akara has joined the gladiator ring

Missable trophy

See Best Gladiator Ever

 

X3aAmG.pngBest Gladiator Ever  :bronze

Akara is the best Gladiator ever, defeating every possible opponent in the Gladiator ring

Missable trophy

Thanks to dav1d_123 for correcting me on the location of the Gladiator Ring.

This was the biggest pain of a trophy for me and why I would not suggest the game.

 I got this after completing level 41 of the Gladiator Ring (When you save, it shows you which Gladiator Ring you either finished or the next one you are about to play; I am not sure).

The location of the Gladiator battles starts when you talk to a character outside of Lorena's Inn/Bar in Huamelula.

​Gladiator Ring Portal:

Spoiler

As far as I can tell, once you leave the area to continue the rest of the story, you cannot go back to fight the battles.

Tips for beating the battles:

  • You cannot use health items (the arena ends if you use them) but some weapons replenish health; it is up to you if you want to use them. Also, health refills drop from enemies randomly.
  • Check your weapons and use the ones with the highest damage. Uruki’s shop in Lorena's Inn/Bar only had 14.x damage items but after level 30, he had 30.x damage items. You can check back at his shop to see if newer more damaging weapons show up after each level.
  • Use your Mana (pink bar below your health). L1 and square do a knock down attack. L1 and triangle shoot a beam across the screen. L1 and circle or circle makes her have a Chun-Li like spinning kick. There is also a way to throw daggers but that seemed too low damaging.
  • The enemies that throw or shoot should be taken out first. There are enemies that throw rocks and they can make huge rocks fall and that can damage you greatly or kill you. The Sorcerer enemies can make some giant hand come out of the sky and hurt you.

 

X3aAmG.pngMinotaur Bane  :bronze

Killed three minotaur captains so far

I got this trophy randomly while playing earlier in the game so I believe you will get it while playing through the game.

 

X3aAmG.pngFirst Troll killed  :bronze

First encounter with a Troll

Story related and cannot be missed.

You will get this trophy the first time you fight a big green troll.

 

X3aAmG.pngGhost killer  :bronze

Ghosts! Defeated!

Story related and cannot be missed.

You will get this trophy after you defeat the ghost army you encounter. It is a boss fight.

 

X3aAmG.pngEyeDemons are horrible  :bronze

EyeDemons are wicked and intelligent, still they were subdued

Story related and cannot be missed.

This is another boss fight where you will encounter a flying cyclops head with Medusa type snakes on it’s head.

 

X3aAmG.pngEven Hibris ran from my blade  :bronze

Even Hibris had to escape from Akara's fury

Story related and cannot be missed.

You will get this after the boss fight with Hibris.

 

X3aAmG.pngA historian in Hell  :bronze

First human in Hell

Story related and cannot be missed.

You will take over another character when you go to Hell and this trophy will unlock.

 

X3aAmG.pngThugs dead: Like a boss  :bronze

Sometimes humans are worse than demons

Story related and cannot be missed.

Another boss fight where you will fight these humans with black clothes and silver armor.

 

X3aAmG.pngCook  :bronze

Demoncrab stew is tasty

Story related and cannot be missed.

You will encounter an old man and after he watches you and your friend swim, you will have to attack around 20 Demoncrabs (there will be an on screen counter). After completing the amount on the counter, you will get this trophy.

 

X3aAmG.pngAkara In Hell  :bronze

Akara has reached hell along with her companions

Story related and cannot be missed.

When Akara goes to Hell, you will get this trophy.

 

X3aAmG.pngThe truth about Lord Uruki  :bronze

Lord Uruki is not a humble merchant

Missable trophy

Lord Uruki is a merchant you will see throughout the game. When you go to Hell, he has his own shop and when you talk to him there, this trophy unlocks.

Check the spoiler for what Uruki's shop looks like on the outside.

X3aAmG.pngRings are cool  :bronze

A Magical Ring!

Missable trophy

You can buy rings at merchant stands to put on your hand icons in the Start screen and you can see your rings under the Jewels button. The first one I saw was in Hell and a green merchant sold it to me then the trophy popped. I did see a ring in my inventory after I got the Gladiator trophy though so that may be a reward that will unlock the trophy.

 

X3aAmG.pngMany treasures in Wicked Road  :bronze

Akara found many, many chests on wicked road

Missable trophy

While in Hell, you will be accompanied by your Uncle Adrastros and you will go through this floating brown road. Your indicator will tell you to continue down the road but then will be a grey area you can go to which is off the road. The area has a lot of weapon chests to open.

Check the spoilers for the location:

X3aAmG.pngSetting an old score with Busiris  :bronze

Busiris, last time you ran away after killing my friend, no this time I'm afraid

Story related and cannot be missed.

This is the 2nd to last boss battle and you will get the trophy after defeating both foes.

 

X3aAmG.pngDeimos: you are so dead  :bronze

Deimos dead, finally.

Story related and cannot be missed.

I unlocked this trophy when the final boss battle started so I did not even have to finish the game.

 

X3aAmG.pngPotion Hoarder  :bronze

100 Potions!

Missable trophy

I tried several things to get this trophy. First, I tried to have 100 assorted potions total and that did not work. Next, I tried to buy the cheapest healing item 100 times and that did not work. I finally got the trophy by buying/having the cheapest potion 100 times. The cheapest one is 400 Varos so you could just save when you have 40,000 Varos, buy 100 potions, get the trophy and then load your save so your money won’t be effected.

 

X3aAmG.pngBest sword ever  :bronze

Best sword in the world!

Missable trophy

I got this when I picked up the following weapon in the spoiler tags. Since it seemed there were other weapons that did more damage, I am not sure if this is given when you pick up a specific sword.

The name of the sword was Masterwork Healer SilverSteel Great Sword with 42.0 Damage, 2.1 Heal. I got it from a random chest in Hell. You could also try saving before opening a chest in Hell and if it does not have a good weapon, you could reload.

Spoiler

Guide is done, feel free to post. Any new info is greatly appreciated since this is a Vita title, I can't play through again to learn more about the trophies. 

Nice guide,

I actually wanted to play this game but it never made it over here... for obvious reasons

Nice guide,

Thanks. I am looking to do guides on more obscure games that don't have/never will get guides.

 

Hopefully the future 2 or 3 people that will ever play this will appreciate it. :thumbsup

Nice looking guide

 

 

These are the kind of guides we love, japan or rare :)

I just want to say the gladiator ring is NO WHERE near hell nor the uriki shop... Lost a soid 2h looking around talking to NPCs and messaging the 10 folks that had this trophy. It is way before hell shortly after the crab hunting quest. The save is called "Looking for Lorena" and the save right before that is called  "Near Viejo Huatulco". Thank god I found this post and that I had a save at this part or I would not have even finished that game

I've updated with this info. I would've got to it earlier but I had lost my Vita and I just found it to confirm. Thank you.
