How to unlock the Castle Guide trophy

    I did this on my NG+ run, which is started upon continuing from the final save in your NG run.

    I followed along (mostly) with this speedrun. Sorry about the crappy quality- it didn't look nearly as bad on my phone as it does on my PC:


    I mirrored the run fairly closely, but there were a few parts that I couldn't replicate, even with nearby saves and multiple tries, so I had to improvise in a few places.

    If you want to be able to watch in higher quality, this run seems similar:


    Here are my save times/locations as I progressed:

    Graveyard
    18:06

    Windmill:
    25:06

    Stone pillar
    32:35

    East Arena
    38.34

    Waterfall (slight detour to save when first arriving)
    56:35

    Waterfall (on the way back after water wheel jumps)
    1:02:37

    Water Tower
    1:08:22

    West Idol Stairs
    1:16:01

    Main Gate (final save after arriving and seeing the first cut scene)
    1:26:15

    I don't know my final time as the game doesn't create a save after completing NG+, but I had enough time from the final save to beat the game AND get the Watermelon ending, which added a minute or two to the final trek down the beach.

    From my own attempts, I would recommend you not proceed with the final sequence if you're over 1:30 on the clock. I couldn't get the trophy to pop from a save with a 1:30:40 even with an outstanding clean and deathless ending sequence. I only got it when I cut my Main Gate save down to 1:27:01.

    Use multiple save slots and go back to improve some older sequences if your Main Gate time is too high.
