Encore Mode/New game +:
To play a new game+, or Encore mode, complete the game and load its saved data to begin a new game with all obtained score pieces, party levels and a hero's crest. The enemies and bosses will be much stronger.
Easy gold hint:
To earn easy gold, do the following: After gaining control of Beat and Alegretto, enter the sewers. Use Beat's vivid shot skill to take pictures of the enemies. Move Beat beside the target and take pictures until you get 12 photos. Go back to the surface and sell them. Repeat as desired. Tip: Take pictures of the Sewer Boss's full body with Retto beside it to earn 1000 gold.
"Mysterious Unison" trophy hint:
In the last desert area in chapter 7, head east to reach the Oasis. There is an item and large door. After the battle with the ruined body boss, you will receive a hero's crest. Use it to open the door and unlock the trophy.
Echo Meter hint:
Make sure you build up your Echo Meter during each battle so that you can unleash your special attacks with more damage. The meter is built by attacking enemies with your regular attacks, which will build it up to 4 hits, 8 hits, 12 hits, 16 hits, 24 hits, and 32 hits (the latter being the highest). Unleashing special attacks at that plateau will result in the most powerful attacks your characters can unleash, but be sure to use them in the present battle as the meter, even if unused, will be reset before the next battle.
When you need money, remember that you can take pictures with Beat's special skills and sell them to vendors. Pictures of enemies, especially bosses, are valuable and can net you lots of cash.
