7. Introduction
===============

The purpose of this guide is to outline the differences between the Play
Station 3 and XBOX 360 versions of Eternal Sonata. The FAQ focuses on the
Treasure Locations changes and providing a basic walkthrough to the two new
dungeons added to the PS3 Version. Along with these changes, the PS3 version
contains a higher degree of difficulty making it a bigger challenge to beat the
game. There are also new scenes added and some changes in the storyline and the
ending that will not be covered in this guide at the moment. In further
versions of this guide this content may be added. The reader must be warned
that this guide contains possible spoilers.

If you find any mistakes in this guide or want to add content to it, please
contact me through my e-mail address or the Message Board. I will give full
credit if I decide to incorporate any suggestions.

Enjoy.

NOTE: If you want to return to this dungeon, go to Prince Crescendo's room in

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lament is a new dungeon added to the storyline on the PS3 version of Eternal
Sonata. It will be triggered after you speak with Prince Crescendo and
Princess Serenade in Chapter 4. Once you leave Prince Crescendo’s room, a
scene will trigger and you will end up inside the mirror Lament.

Mirror's Depths
---------------

You will be controlling Polka alone. The enemy here is fairly easy (actually
the entire dungeon is very easy and straight forward) so you shouldn’t have
any problems dealing with them.

At the entrance there is a save point. Start moving forward, cross the small
bridge to find a chest containing a STAR COOKIE to the right. Continue to
follow the path to find a chest containing a FLORAL EXTRACT on a patch of
grass to the right. A little ahead there is another chest containing ELEGANT
CLOTHES for Polka. Go through the giant mirror at the end to reach the next
screen.

First Eve - New Moon
--------------------

Scene. Prince Crescendo joins the party.

Mirror’s Flipside
-----------------

Save you game and move forward. Cross the gaps and get the chest with an ANGEL
TRUMPET to the south. Continue on and at the fork, take the right path to
reach a chest with a DEWDROP UMBRELLA for Polka. Continue on and you will
reach another fork, go south and get the chest with a FLORAL EXTRACT along the
way. Continue on and at the end of the very long path you will find a HOPLON
SHIELD for Crescendo. Go back to the fork and go north. Open the chest for a
CLUB CLOVER to the left and go right. Pass the giant mirror and keep going
right and open a chest with a STONE OF THE SPRING. Continue to the next area.

Second Eve - Crescent Moon
--------------------------

Another scene. Princess Serenade joins the party.

Mirror’s Maze
-------------

As the name implies this area is a maze and is kind of annoying. Every
triangular compartment has three mirror exits but only some of them are
passable. Also once you pass through a mirror you can’t return through the
same one, in other words, they are one-way mirrors. Ok, from the start go up
through the only mirror that is not broken. Then go left, up, right, right,
down, open the chest containing a STONE OF THE SPRING, and go left. You will
be back at the entrance. From here go left, up, left, up, right, right, right,
right, open the chest for a FLORAL EXTRACT, go down, left, down, left, left,
up, left, up, right, right, right, up, left, left, open the chest for a
GODDESS BOUQUET, go down, right, right, up, left, and up. Proceed to the next
area.

Third Eve - Half Moon
---------------------

Another scene. Beat joins the party.

Mirror’s Edge
-------------

You are UPSIDE DOWN!!! Luckily you only have to follow the path to reach the
next area.

Mirror’s Edge
-------------

Same area but with the screen back to normal. Save your game.

Fourth Eye - Gibbous Moon
-------------------------

ANOTHER scene. Salsa and Frederic join the party.

Mirror’s Surface
----------------

Follow the path and continue north to reach a chest with ROCHIN for Crescendo.
Keep going up and open the chest along the way containing an ARES STAFF for
Serenade. Continue on and when you reach a split in the path go south for a
chest with a SAINT'S VESTMENT for Serenade. Go north, up the ramp and to the
left and DOWN the ramp. Descend a series of ramps to find a chest with POLKS'S
1ST ALTERNATE COSTUME at the bottom. Return back up and go to the left and
around picking up a CLUB CLOVER along the way. Start going up the ramps and
open a chest with a SNOWPUFF COOKIE. Save your game and exit this area.

Fifth Eve - Full Moon
---------------------

Scene and boss fight.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Spirit Svetovit
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This battle is fairly easy and shouldn't pose much of a threat. First let’s
take a look at the boss's attacks. Boom and Bolt targets an area and deal
medium damage. Man Splitter is a powerful attack that can deal high damage.
Tread on is his weak physical attack. Man Fillet is a close range attack,
which hits three times.

For this fight I used Frederic, Crescendo and Beat. I had already learned
Spirit’s Pathway with Frederic and he was my healer. Crescendo was my close
range damage dealer, and I had beat use Fire Blast from afar. If you haven’t
learned Spirits Pathway you can try using Polka and Earth Heal instead.

You will obtain CHAKRAM for Salsa once you defeat him.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------

Second Point: Chest that contained Elegant Clothes is replaced with LION'S
MANE.

Sixth Point: Chest that contained Chakram is replaced with CELESTIAL HOURGLASS

CELESTIAL HOURGLASS, and DIAMOND CLOVER are found where originally only
Celestial Hourglass was.

--------------------
Chapter 5 - Nocturne
--------------------

Ritardando
----------

Sewers: Once you gain control of Beat at Mandolin Church go outside and you
will find Sym at the entrance of the Hideout. Talk to him and he will take you
to the sewers where the chest that was previously unavailable can now be
accessed. Open it for BEAT'S ALTERNATE COSTUME.

Mandolin Church Catacombs
-------------------------

Grotto: Middle Section: Chest that contained Double Crescent is replaced with
GODDESS BOUQUET.

Another storyline event is added at the start of Chapter 6. After a few scenes
prince Crescendo will give you the WARP ROOM KEY. Go to the Warp Room located
to the left of the castle entrace and you will be warped to Agogo Forest. Once
there start going south through agogo forest. Eventually scene will take place
and you will fight Fugue for a third time. He has the same attacks as last time
and is rather easy. You will receive DEATH'S HEAD for Falsetto once the battle
is over.

Items: Glory, Mjolnir, Hell’s Cannon, Noble White*, Sacred Mail*, Scudetto,
Scrapbook.

Enemies: EZI Devotee, EZI Torchbearer, Dandelion*, The Great EZI (Boss)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Church of EZI is the last bonus dungeon on the PS3 version of Eternal
Sonata. It can be accessed by obtaining the EZI Free Pass, the S Rank price for
playing Score Piece NPC Twilight Juju in Chorus Plains. After obtaining this
item, head to the Sharp Mountains - Base, and take the left path. You will find
an enemy lookinf at a weird statue. Kill it and examine the statue to find the
entrance to the dungeon. The dungeon is very hard, so I suggest you complete
Mysterious Unison before attempting to do this dungeon.

Path to Peace
-------------

Follow the path taking out the enemies for huge EXP. Eventually you will reach
the next area.

Passion Proving Passage
-----------------------

Move forward and a scene with the statue will take place. Save your game and
move forward. On this area you have to avoid touching the strips of light or
you will have to fight an enemy and you will have to start all over.

Courage Checking Chamber
------------------------

This area is basically similar to the last one but with a higher level of
difficulty. First of all, let me explain in detail how this area work. The EZI
statues in this area do not have the strip of light coming out 5 squares in
front of them, but they will activate if you move into that range. Therefore,
avoid facing statues and go through their backs, if the security system is
activated you will fight and start all over. But, as you will soon see it is
easier said than done.

Go north and examine the painting on the wall for a funny scene. Just south
from the painting there is a chest containing GLORY for Serenade. Continue on
and as you move south close to the wall you will see a lever to your left.
Flip it and the statues will change position. The positions of the statues
will be reset if you are detected by the security system, so the levers must
be flipped everytime.

To the lower right corner there is another painting, approach it for another
scene. Move back towards the switch but change direction midway due north and
you should see a chest north of you that can't be reached yet. Start making
your way to the northwest and eventually you will spot another chest, which is
accessible at this moment and contains MJOLNIR for Crescendo. Directly north
in the upper left corner there is another level that must be flipped. Now the
previous chest can be accessed, so make your way back and open it to obtain
HELL'S CANNON for Beat.

Make your way to the north where you can approach another lever to the upper
right corner that will allow you to continue up the stairs to the next area.

* SPECIAL NOTE on Dandelion

If you get caught by the statue directly below the exit of this area you will
fight a special enemy called Dandelion. It's an onion type enemy that is
extremely powerful but will give immense amounts of Exp as well as drop NOBLE
WHITE and SACRED MAIL, the two ultimate armors for Serenade and Crescendo.

Placid Parish
-------------

You can talk to the people to learn more about EZI. Make sure you buy SCUDETTO
for Crescendo in the Item Shop. There is also an inn and a save point.

Wonder Way
----------

Proceed to the next area.

Awesome Altar
-------------

Move forward for a cut scene and you will fight.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Great EZI
2X EZI Torchbearer
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This fight can be hard and annoying. EZI has an arsenal of powerful attacks.
He can also heal himself for huge amounts of HP as well as revive the EZI
Torchbearers. EZI is also affectd by light and shadow, being bigger and more
powerful when affected by light. Over Level 70 is recommended for this fight,
but if you defeated Anhililator already this fight will be fairly easy.
SCRAPBOOK will be unlocked on the main meny after you defeat him.

Another scene and you will automatically exit the place. You can return to
this dungeon anytime.
