Obligatory reaction to trophies and game in general

Oh shit!!! The glorious Ninja Gaiden inspired retro fest actually made it to PS4! 

 

Quietly as I didn't hear anything about this release, I hope the trophies aren't on the Impossible/tedious side.

Open pre-order for physical copy at both Special Reserve and Limited Run Games (both also have a Switch version).

As for the game itself I'm just not interested. I'm just tired out by all these indie 2D platformers. It's been one of my least favorite genres since the Mario days. I'll try Celeste, Hollow Knight, Bloodstained, Salt & Sanctuary, Shovel Knight, and Bomb Chicken eventually but that's about it. Haven't even played a Metroid or Castlevania game. Will get the SotN/RoB collection eventually but I have no interest in 2D Metroid. That being said, I've tried Typoman, Unraveled, Dokuro, and Trine 1 + 2 and didn't really like any of them. I bought Momodora for some reason but who knows if I'll ever play it. I don't know if we count stuff as Muramasa, Odin Sphere, or iCEY as 2D platformers since it's mainly hack-n-slash with barely any platforming. There's a couple others I can't recall that I own/will own and will want to play but they aren't a top priority.

 

Back to The Messenger... a time traveling ninja games looks appealing but I just don't care like I said previously.

I heard all the praise, but it's still much better than I was expecting. Already one of the more enjoyable metroidvanias I've played, although it's more on the platformer side. Glad there are at least two stacks for it.

 

Trophy list seems easy and straight-forward, but there are these missable trophies:

No Argument Here

I Swear It's My First Time

Probably Fine, I Won't Open It, Bait Taken and You Said This Was A Platformer

 

I'm at 5-6 hours playtime and I think I'm probably at least 70% done

Game is fun, I’m about 50% through. The no argument here trophy won’t be as bad as it sounds as those sections aren’t that tough. A 2nd run through after knowing the bosses should make easy work of it. The hidden collectibles  might be tricky until there is a guide. Think I’m at 6 total found so far. But not really searching that hard.

You can see all Power Seals locations on the map if you buy "Focused Power Sense"  upgrade.

Here you guys go for one of the hardest trophies. Used this guide and got it no problem. Simple but extremely fun Platinum. Loving the game so much and I pre ordered physical for Switch.

Also for no argument here the game only saves at checkpoints so the second you die close application, or use cloud saves to be safe.
