Shuffle! (English) Walkthrough <legal>Shuffle! is a game originally by Navel and is now owned in someway by MangaGamer. I’m not sure exactly what all that means, but just know that I don’t own the characters or the rights to this game. </legal> This walkthrough made for GameFAQs. Table of Contents: 1.

By 100%, I mean unlocking all of the content (at least what I know about). For more about the extra modes, please see section six (Extra Modes). 1a.Update Log v1.1 - 1/1/12 - Added update log and corrected date error in Nerine's walkthrough. v1.0 - 10/3/09 - Original guide submitted. 2.Introduction to Shuffle! Shuffle! is a game originally by Navel, but from what I understand, was just recently translated to English. For recent fans of the series like me, that was a very, very good thing. I actually got into Shuffle! a few months before I found out about the English release by watching the DVD set. Anyhow, in Shuffle! you play as Rin Tsuchimi, a student at Verbena Academy. He is living with Kaede Fuyou and her dad (who you’ll never see, by the way :p). Now, because of her dedicated nature to him (which you’ll find out in Kaede’s storyline), Rin basically does nothing but play all day (forgive me if I sound resentful, but I am). Anyhow, between them life is pretty normal ,that is, until the game of Shuffle! actually starts. 3.Controls As this is an adventure sort of game, you’ll be controlling Rin in his destiny to find the one he truly loves. Admittedly, there’s not much controlling to be done. For what there is, allow me to enlighten you. Main Menu - Start Self-explanatory. Clicking here will start your new adventure from Day 1. - Load Again, pretty obvious. This will allow you to load a save that you’ve made in the middle of an adventure. - Config This will allow you to adjust various settings like message speed and volume. It’s worth checking out once or twice. - Extra Not really useful until you’ve completed the story at least once. Really useful after you’ve gotten 100%. It will allow you to do anything from viewing CG images from character’s storylines to playing back music from the adventures. All of your hard work will be reflected here. - Exit When you’re tired of playing, you can either click here or on that handy little red X. Either one produces the same results. In Game Controls Left-click/Enter - Advances to the next dialog or makes the speaking character’s text show up immediately. Right-click - Hides the HUD. Note: Unless you are in a CG scene, you will still see the date indicator. Quicksave - Makes a quick save. Note: There is only one quick save slot, so if you want to save that point for later, use a regular save. Quickload - Loads your quick saves. Auto - Will play through the character’s conversation in a movie-esque manner. Skip - Speeds through text you’ve already seen. Unless you’re a die-hard Shuffle! fan and want to read through the same dialog multiple times, this is the most useful button for playing through different girls’ storylines. Log - Lets you view the last three events that happened and who said/did them. Menu - Brings up a fairly useless menu that allows you to do everything you can do from either Config at the main menu, pressing a key, or clicking an X. Except for the Save/Load function, which allows you to make a hard save in case you want to go back to that point in the game at a later time without using your quick save. 4: The Characters of Shuffle! Rin Tsuchimi Our protagonist and the man you play as. Rin is a student at Vebena Academy. He lives with Kaede Fuyou. Rin does not have a voice, but does have text responses. He is currently sought after by many girls. He has many death threats per day and is exposed to more abuse than any person should be. As he says, My strength is tolerating pain. Kaede Fuyou Rin’s friend/maid. She has been taking care of him for a while now. She is smart, happy, and caring. She makes it her point in life to make his life as easy as possible. As such, she is usually either in school or at the house doing chores. Despite this, she is usually always happy. Asa Shigure Another of Rin’s friends. They’ve been friends for about four years. She is one of Rin’s sources of abuse and can usually be seen greeting Rin with a nice slap on the back. She is cheerful and energetic. She can usually be seen with her best friend, Kareha. Nerine The daughter of the King of Devils. She is reserved and smart. She has returned from the world of the Devils to gain Rin’s love. She deals with her father’s nonsense by refusing to talk to him and deals with people who talk bad on Rin with offensive magic that might be a bit out of control. Lisianthus The daughter of the King of Gods. Lisianthus, or Sia, is cheerful, outgoing, and sort of dim. She often finds herself embarrassed by her father, so she has adopted the policy of hitting him with blunt objects. Primula Well, without trying to give too much away, she is involved in an experiment and has come to the world of the humans to find Rin. She rarely shows emotion and loves cats. King of the Gods Eustoma, or as you will get to know him by, King of Gods, is Lisianthus’ father. He overreacts a lot and finds that the best way to solve something is either by force or drinking excessive amounts of sake. He is generally a cheerful guy and can easily be considered a comic relief. King of the Devils. Forbesii, or as Shuffle! calls him, King of Devils is Nerine’s father. He is Eustoma’s friend. He has an odd obsession with doing chores and cooking. When push comes to shove, he is usually joining Eustoma for sake drinking. He often convinces Nerine of things that Rin really wishes he wouldn’t. Kareha She’s a god and Asa’s best friend. Kareha loves anything cute and will often space out upon seeing anything cute with the words: My, my!, much to Asa’s displeasure. Mayumi Thyme Mayumi is a half-human, half-devil mix which explains her different iris colors. She is usually excited and takes it upon herself to find the juicest gossip stories around Verbena Academy. She is often teased by Itsuki on her small chest size, which she denies and insists is very attractive to the right type of men. She considers her weakest point to be her academics. Nadeshiko Benibara Rin’s, and a number of other characters’, primary instructor at Verbena Academy. She enjoys handing out extra work to slacking students and scolding Itsuki on his women prowling tactics. Itsuki Midoriba Possibly Rin’s only male friend in the world. He is competitive, intelligent, and all about the ladies. If he’s not scolding Rin for not picking up a girl or acing a test, he’s hitting on another girl. Surprisingly, Itsuki is single. Ama Shigure Asa’s mother. She is rarely seen, but is often mistaken for being much younger than she actually is. She is very concerned for Asa’s wellbeing and is a polite, cheerful individual. 5.Walkthrough Well, I had a rough time deciding how to write this out. Instead of wasting your time (and mine) of detailing every day for you (you have the game to get the story!), I’ll simply tell you of the choices you must make for each girl and your 100% completion of her storyline. To find your character, please use the codes in the Table of Contents, or use my convenient reference table here! A few notes that are worth...noting... - At a few points during this walkthrough, I’ll tell you to quicksave and quickload. The great thing about Shuffle! is that it remembers what you’ve seen already, so by doing that you kind of tackle both routes and unlock everything in one go. - In order to do Primula’s story, you MUST complete Nerine’s path. - At a few points during this walkthrough, I’ll tell you to hard save. This means going to your menu, going to Save/Load and making an actual save. Why? Because if you overwrite that quicksave, you’ll be reading this walkthrough again.

In order to view everything, you must complete 100% of each girl’s story. However, many of these modes are available from the get-go and can be used to some effect once you’ve completed any girl’s story once. In order to access these, at the main menu, go to Extra. A new menu will pop up with the following options: CG Viewer Mode Scene Recollection Mode Sound Mode Expression Viewer - Unlocked by encountering every character in the game. Allow me to detail these for you. CG Viewer Mode This handy little fellow is great for screenshots or just going back on the more memorable moments of Shuffle!. You can view any CG image you’ve seen already. It is split by girls, an etc. category, and background images. It has a percentage tracker for overall completion, each girl’s individual completion, and the etc. category’s completion. On some of the more CG heavy girls, it will actually divide scenes in which a lot of CG images like each other were displayed into sets, which also show how many you have. Scene Recollection Mode This mode allows you to skip (well, without going to Start and using skip through the story and making choices to get your girl) through the story and go straight to the more intimate moments between Rin and the girl of your choice. This isn’t a CG viewer; this is actually a tool to skip through the story and resume at the love scenes of Shuffle!. Also, it can be used to display any girl’s epilogue. Sound Mode Yes, that’s correct. Not only can you unlock CG artwork, but music tracks, too! While it lacks a completion percentage marker, it visually displays which tracks you’ve yet to unlock. All of them are unlocked at some point through all of the girl’s storylines. Yes, you will need to play and fully complete (100%) them all to unlock all of them, though most of the common tracks are available after one completion. Comes complete with a back, play, stop, and forward button control panel! Expression Viewer Mode Perhaps the most rewarding unlockable mode; actually, it’s the only unlockable mode. I’m not completely sure, but I think the requirement for this guy is to have encountered every character in the game. Once unlocked, you will be able to select any character you desire, put them in any costume you’ve seen them in, and give them any expression you’d like, and view the results. Always wanted to see Sia with a surprised look in her gym outfit? Expression Viewer Mode is now your new best friend. 7.
