Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII trophy and achievement list surfaces online By Erren Van Duine on September 20, 2013 at 11:43 PM

The full trophy and achievement list – in English – has surfaced online two months in advance of the game’s launch in Japan. Of course, the entire thing is chock-full of spoilers so read it at your own risk. I will say though, the Platinum seems to be just as easy to obtain as the one for Final Fantasy XIII-2 was.


  • surakian

    Leagues easier than the XIII platinum, but definitely there with XIII-2.

  • Somber

    not very spoilerific because the story’s ending is predictable 🙂

  • OathkeeperSoraXIII

    Looks slightly easier than XIII-2’s trophies. Why do I get the feeling that killing 10 of the last species is going to be a lot harder than it sounds lol

  • Wassim Mokhtar


  • Sapientia

    Predictable? Pray tell us all then.

  • Caius

    Just meh.I still think this game will get a 50-60% on metacritics.

    #spoilers Oh my god the 6th trophy. o:

  • Ehren Rivers

    Indeed. I’m also quite pleased that there’s crafting trophies. And the seventh trophy…

    Daaaamn, what a reveal.

  • TO

    I thought it was very obvious that Bhuni will be evil.

  • TO

    EASY (thank god)!

  • Anime10121

    Don’t want too look…. Must resist temptation…

    (Are the spoilers any thing TOO severe? Or just things that’ll likely be spoiled with trailers anyway)

  • Anduin

    Very spoilery.

  • Anime10121

    DAMNIT! That makes it all the harder NOT to look 🙁

  • Ryuukishi

    Sweet, sweet spoilers. 😀 This looks like another easy thousand, like XIII-2.

  • Jean Paiva

    I did not needed that 🙁

  • artemisthemp

    It looks like a easy Platinum, but will the Ultimate garb be available on Easy mode?

  • Snow Covered Kenneth

    They said they were going to make it possible to go beyond 13 days. I was hoping there would be a way to just stop the clock altogether after you beat the game…ah well.

  • apdyckman

    After reading the achievement list, I find myself disappointed that the game’s story elements are starting to look JRPG-cliche especially #6. I honestly could have guessed that when the game was first revealed. :/

  • TheTux94

    I don’t think it is that spoilery. Is it?

    EDIT: Ok just red #6 trophy’s description and it is really spoilerish. I suggest you to leave this page, seriously.

  • miss chel

    Mmmm that may be true but you don’t really know what exactly happens. There are a lot of mysteries we still have yet to know that can give depth to the cliche.

  • TO


  • Ehren Rivers

    Well, they did kind of already tell us about that particular plot point a while back. All we know further now is the attribute assigned to it.

  • Absolclaw

    Okay, the Unearthly Apothecary achievement made me laugh.

  • apdyckman

    Yeah the game is definitely going to be fun… I’m just a little disappointed they went that route with the story. Nevertheless, if Lightning and Caius team-up to fight the final boss, I’d be happy and almost totally appeased. lol

  • apdyckman

    ” A specific someone” needs to be involved if the ending is going to make sense IMO.

  • Jean Paiva

    Never know.

  • M. Ziab

    ****POTENTIAL SPOILERS IN MY POST**** Please read at your own risk!

    About the 6th trophy, I’m a bit sad. I always thought of them as something beyond human comprehension so I’m not sure in what form are they going to appear in the game.

    Well, I’m actually not sure if they are going to appear in the game anyways. You never know what it actually means, right?

  • SazhKatzroy

    So then is Snow the hero that will defeat Lightning?
    I think any interpretation is fair game… who knows really 😛

  • Sothe Zephyr

    I regret reading this………………………bringing peace to the Patron………Snow….

  • Storm2356

    For those that read the list, what are your thoughts on #15 and #17?

    EDIT: Also, I read on the official website that EP is the same as Eradia, and although there’s a bit of outdated stuff on that site, I’m still a little worried. Even if you can complete the game without extending to to the maximum time limit, who would bother with number… uh, 39?
