  • Welcome to Kena trophy guide! Another platformer, this time we control young Kena, and we need to guide spirits to release them and clear the corruption from the world. Platinum is not hard, but with latest patches (1.06 and forward) you can't use the Master difficutly glitch anymore, so you will have to finish the game twice.

    Step 1 - Finish the game on any difficulty, while doing all combat-related trophies and collectibles

    When you finish the game, you can load your latest quick-save and you will be brought back before the final Meditation point. Interracting with it will end the game. This means you can collect whatever you've missed during this playthrough except the combat trophies - they are highly missable because there is a limited number of encounters in the game.

    You might want to think about next combat-related trophies while you play (saving before a combat, or loading a quick-save during one can bring you before the actual combat, so you can use this as your trick):

    Piercing Blow, Weigh Them Down, Quick Draw, Bow Master, Sharpshooter, Between the Eyes, Return to Sender, Triple Threat, Triple Tap

    Step 2 - Finish the game on Master difficulty (or use the glitch if you are up to 1.05 version of the game). Mop up any combat trophy if you miss some

    When you beat the game for the first time, you can now start a new game and choose Master difficulty. This should be your last trophy if you did everything so far, and I suggest you activate all Meditation points on your way + upgrade whatever you see that can help you. It shouldn't be too hard, but you will have to learn how to use dodge and parry properly and often.

    Master difficulty glitch

    If you are on version 1.05 or lower, you are in luck. After you finish the game, load (or continue) your latest save, navigate to the last meditation point on Mountain Shrine (go inside the circle) and create a save there. Use it, skip the scenes, start a new game and choose Master difficulty.

    Play until you get the first Rot (although you can even do this sooner), and load the previous save. Interract with the meditation point and you will unlock the trophy. Too bad if your save is already on 1.06 version; that means you can't use this exploit anymore.

    Piercing Blow  
    MISSABLE
     
    Hit 3 Enemies with a single Rot Infused Arrow.

    As there is a limited number of enemies after beating the game, this makes all of the combat-related trophies missable.

    Buy "Rot Infused Arrow" upgrade for 200 Upgrade points under the "Rot" column.
    Now you can use the piercing arrow blow by holding L2 + square when you fill at least one rot. You need to kill 3 enemies using a single arrow, so aim to do this on small,weak enemies.

    Weigh Them Down  
    MISSABLE
     
    Destroyed a Moth enemy with a Bomb.

    As there is a limited number of enemies after beating the game, this makes all of the combat-related trophies missable.

    When you get the Bomb ability, the next encounter is conveniently enough with Moths. Throw a bomb, and make sure it kills a Moth (you can shoot the bomb after tossing one to make it explode).

    Quick Draw  
    MISSABLE
     
    Hit 3 critical hit spots in 3 seconds.

    As there is a limited number of enemies after beating the game, this makes all of the combat-related trophies missable.

    This is quite self-explanatory, and quite easy to do on small enemies with red glowing light on their back; that will spawn a bit later in the story. A good point is when you need to clear a corruption on the village heart, while moving on a platform through the water. Tap R2 to shoot fast. Make a save beforehand, so you can retry.

    Bow Master  
    MISSABLE
     
    Hit 3 enemies with a single Multi-shot.

    As there is a limited number of enemies after beating the game, this makes all of the combat-related trophies missable.

    Buy "Bind Multishot" upgrade for 200 Upgrade points under Bow Section. You need to infect an enemy with Rot (L2 + square when you fill at least 1 yellow Rot bar), and then shoot that enemy with an arrow to make the arrow split. Make sure to do this when there are 3 enemies close to the one you will infect.

    Sharpshooter     Defeated an enemy by shooting a Bomb out of the air.

    As there is a limited number of enemies after beating the game, this makes all of the combat-related trophies missable.

    When you get the Bomb ability, the next encounter is conveniently enough with Moths. Throw a bomb, and shoot the bomb while in the air (you can jump and aim with your bow to slow time, making this quite easy).

    Between the Eyes  
    MISSABLE
     
    Destroyed a Shield Sticks without breaking his shield.

    As there is a limited number of enemies after beating the game, this makes all of the combat-related trophies missable.

    Shield Sticks are small enemies with a shield; simply dodge when they attack and kill one of them without breaking their shield.

    Return to Sender  
    MISSABLE
     
    Destroyed a Mage with its own bomb.

    As there is a limited number of enemies after beating the game, this makes all of the combat-related trophies missable.

    This one is highly missable as you can only fight Mage on few points in the game. One is in the Forgotten Forest, and then some later, 2 being in Village Heart Caves. Create a save before, or keep dying if you don't get the trophy. You need to parry with L at the exact moment when a Mage toss the bomb at you to reflect the orb back into a Mage.

    Triple Threat  
    MISSABLE
     
    Destroyed 3 enemies with a single Parry.

    As there is a limited number of enemies after beating the game, this makes all of the combat-related trophies missable.

    Use small enemies, weaken them with your bow or staff, and then parry when they're all close and one attacks you. Prologue area is the closest point if you miss this one during the game.

    1:56 - Return to Sender Trophy
    2:06 - Triple Tap Trophy

    Rot Commander     Use 5 Rot Actions in a single combat.

    Rot actions are those special actions you use with Square button when you have at least 1 yelow circle filled (lower left bar). You need to use 5 of those in 1 battle to unlock this trophy. I think this is even not missable as you need to use Rot actions on the last boss a few times. To be sure, you can use it easily on enemies each time you fill it.

    Triple Tap  
    MISSABLE
     
    Destroyed 3 enemies with a single dash attack.

    As there is a limited number of enemies after beating the game, this makes all of the combat-related trophies missable.

    When you get the Dash ability, the next encounter is conveniently enough the best to get this trophy. Dashing is performed with L1 + R1. Weaken the small enemies with your bow or staff, and use the Dash ability when they're really close to each other to kill them all during a single Dash.

    Skillful Spirit Guide     Unlocked all ability upgrades.

    Ability upgrade points can be aquired by defeating enemies, opening wooden chests and boxes (when fruits emerges, that means it will give you ability points), using L1 on bushes to grow fruit that can be eaten by rots etc. Make sure to explore as you play, and you should get enough points to unlock all upgrades from your menu. When I finished the game, I had 1200 points extra, so there is more than enough throughout the game.

    Good as New     Restored a Flower Shrine.

    You will need to free a single flower shrine throughout the game. You can find the full list across all areas in the next topic:

    The Last Stop     Delivered all Spirit Mail.

    Master Spirit Guide     Beat the game on Master difficulty

    When you beat the game for the first time, you can now start a new game and choose Master difficulty. This should be your last trophy if you did everything so far, and I suggest you activate all Meditation points on your way + upgrade whatever you see that can help you. It shouldn't be too hard, but you will have to learn how to use dodge and parry properly and often.

    There’s no save game transfer between PS4/PS5 versions, which means you need to finish both versions separately.
