A Year of Springs Trophy Guide and Walkthrough for PlayStation 4 & PlayStation 5

Welcome to our A Year of Springs Trophy Guide. A Year of Springs is an emotionally-driven visual novel trilogy that follows the tales of three friends; Haru, Erika, and Manami as they deal with complex feelings. The whole game features a very clean and adorable art style which would typically be reserved for vector iconography, but has been used here to bring npckc’s story to life!

Phase One – Follow Our Walkthrough

Using this A Year of Springs Trophy Guide Walkthrough, you can unlock all 22 trophies–including the platinum–in less than 10 minutes if you skip all dialogue. That being said, you paid good money for this game, so you might as well try and enjoy it.

If you still wish to skip everything as quickly as you can, go into the Options from the main menu and match the following settings:

  • Text Speed: Full (10/10)
  • Auto-Forward Time: Full (10/10)
  • Skip: Unseen Text: Selected
  • Skip: After Choices: Selected

With the options indicated above, when you press to skip, the game will blast through all the dialogue and only stop when it comes to a choice. Then, when you make a choice, it will automatically blast through to the next one.

A Year of Springs Platinum Trophy Walkthrough

There are several possible endings in A Year of Springs, but to make sure you see them all in a single playthrough you will need to make manual saves at specific points in the story, which you can then switch between, to ensure that nothing gets missed.

From the Title Screen, hit to start the game. You’ll be given three scenario options, but only one is available for now; one night, hot springs. Select it to start the first story.

Read the dialogue or hit to skip to your first choice. Here, select “Sorry… I Just…”

Continue on and you will get the NORMAL END: LET’S TRY SOMETHING ELSE trophy.
