PostSubject: Ending Guide   Fri Jun 24, 2011 4:39 am



Way of the Samurai 3's branching storyline features 22 unique endings, with the 22nd being a secret ending that isn't tied to the trophy set. This guide will show you which Inklings to trigger, which dialogue options to choose and which miscellaneous tasks to complete to unlock all of those endings. Note that many of the endings can be unlocked in multiple ways, and that this list is by no means exhaustive, nor does it necessarily represent the most coherent version of each story arc.

Secret Ending
Secret Ending *

Way of the Samurai 3 players earn the game's secret ending (as well as the "Grim Reaper" title) by reaching 100% kill rate -- dispatching of every NPC in the game, saving Shuzen for last. Note that all of this must be accomplished before the Nobunaga Event is triggered.

Credit for this process goes to Gamespot user fuuinashi:
Prologue: Peasants, choose dialogue option #1
Takatane Village:
Kill everyone except the biwa player.
Castle Amana:
Join Fujimori clan
<<< Complete jobs for Kiyonari to gain access to Shuzen's quarters. >>>
Kill everyone except Shuzen.
Castle Minori:
Join Ouka clan
Kill everyone except Genjuro.
The Road:
Kill Setsuen and Fabled Merchant.
Visit the remaining areas during the Day, killing everyone except Genjuro, Shuzen and the one biwa player.
Visit the remaining areas during the Night, killing everyone except Genjuro, Shuzen and the one biwa player.
Revisit those same areas during the Day and Night again to make sure you haven't missed anyone.
Castle Minori:
Kill Genjuro
Kill NPCs that spawn by you becoming leader of Ouka clan.
Takatane Village:
Save your game.
Kill the biwa player and Leave Amana.
If you're at 99.45%, Shuzen is the only remaining NPC... reload your game and defeat him.
If you're below 99.45%, you've missed someone... reload your game and track them down.
* Completing the secret ending is not a requirement of the "Way of the Samurai" trophy.
