Introduction:
ESCHATOS is an original shooting game (STG) developed for the Xbox 360 by Qute Corporation. The game goes back to old school roots with its presentation and features a vast amount of enviroments to fight through. Also included are two Wonderswan classics: Judgement Silversword and Cardinal Sins. The first print run contains a soundtrack CD featuring music from ESCHATOS and the Wonderswan games.

While the game is only availiable in Japan, there is no region lock thus anyone can play this amazing game.

Step 1: ESCHATOS
The main course of the three games. To begin, pick any game mode and try to get as far as you can. Eventually, you'll unlock new game options when you reach specific Option levels. You'll want to keep playing each game mode on each difficulty until you can clear it, while working on all other related achievements. You can change life stock and use Continues without cancelling out achievements, so eventually you'll get everything done before reaching Option Level 50. Otherwise, use all the unlocks to your advantage to make the remaining goals easier.

Step 2: Judgement Silversword
To start off here, we're going to need to earn enough points to unlock Freeplay (unlocks at Option Level 26) while aiming for Option Level 50. The best way to get points is to repeatedly run through Hard, and keep using the shield on mid-bosses. Time bonuses are far more generous on Hard too, and the further you get, the more points you'll accumulate. Unlike ESCHATOS, we cannot adjust the Stock as it will disable achievements. Practice Mode should help with the later stages, but ideally it'll take a bit of luck and skill to make it to the end on default, though Freeplay will make it less tedious.

Step 3: Cardinal Sins
This guide is still under construction, but will be updated when ready.

Conclusion:
This guide is still under construction, but will be updated when ready.

ESCHATOS ACHIEVEMENTS:

ORIGINAL EASYクリア (ORIGINAL EASY CLEAR) 20
Clear ORIGINAL EASY MODE.

See ORIGINAL HARDESTクリア

ORIGINAL NORMALクリア (ORIGINAL NORMAL CLEAR) 30
Clear ORIGINAL NORMAL MODE.

See ORIGINAL HARDESTクリア

ORIGINAL HARDクリア (ORIGINAL HARD CLEAR) 30
Clear ORIGINAL HARD MODE.

See ORIGINAL HARDESTクリア

ORIGINAL HARDESTクリア (ORIGINAL HARDEST CLEAR) 30
Clear ORIGINAL HARDEST MODE.

Each difficulty has its own tied achievement, and only requires you to finish the game regardless of Continues used. Now, while the other three lower difficulties can be played straight away, HARDEST MODE requires you to reach Option Level 17 before you can play it.

Use the shield in heavier bullet sections, pick up the F item when you need to make breathing room during boss fights, and remember what enemies drop extends to give you a little more room for error.

Alternatively, when you reach Option Level 40, you will unlock Freeplay, thus you can die as many times as you'd like to the end, essentially you don't even have to play.

Note: You will not get credit for clearing the game if you change the Start Stage option from 1.

ADVANCED EASYクリア (ADVANCED EASY CLEAR) 20
Clear ADVANCED EASY MODE.

See ADVANCED HARDESTクリア

ADVANCED NORMALクリア (ADVANCED NORMAL CLEAR) 30
Clear ADVANCED NORMAL MODE.

See ADVANCED HARDESTクリア

ADVANCED HARDクリア (ADVANCED HARD CLEAR) 30
Clear ADVANCED HARD MODE.

See ADVANCED HARDESTクリア

ADVANCED HARDESTクリア (ADVANCED HARDEST CLEAR) 30
Clear ADVANCED HARDEST MODE.

Each difficulty has its own tied achievement, and only requires you to finish the game regardless of Continues used. Now, while the other three lower difficulties can be played straight away, HARDEST MODE requires you to reach Option Level 25 before you can play it.

When you reach Option Level 40, you will unlock Freeplay, thus you can die as many times as you'd like to the end, essentially you don't even have to play.

ADVANCED MODE has a different mechanic to ORIGINAL, where you can collect Power Up pickups to increase your shot power, the tradeoff here however is that your Shield strength weakens. You can pick up yellow/blue F items to reduce your shot while also turning on-screen bullets into purple triangles for bonus points.

Note: You will not get credit for clearing the game if you change the Start Stage option from 1.

TIME ATTACKクリア (TIME ATTACK CLEAR) 30
Clear TIME ATTACK MODE.

Time Attack is a seperate mode that has you playing against a time limit. You must reach the end to have this unlock. The difficulty mirrors ORIGINAL NORMAL so if you can clear that without problems, this should be self explanatory.

Time extends are added when you:
+ clear an Area
+ defeat a Boss
+ pickup a 1UP Extend

Combo chains freeze the time temporarily, while losing a life will cost you five seconds each time.

全モードプレイ (All Mode Play) 20
Play varying difficulty on all game modes.

You'll need to play every difficulty, including Endless Mode, on Original and Advanced at least once, but you don't need to clear them. Quitting out won't count.

少尉 (Ensign) 10
Option Level has reached 10.

See 空将

少佐 (Major) 25
Option Level has reached 25.

See 空将

空将 (Lieutenant) 50
Option Level has reached 50, and all options had become availiable.

It's likely this may be one of the last achievements you'll need while working on everything else. Your Option Level raises when you reach specific score cutoffs that accumulate across all game modes (except Time Attack), and you can check each required score under Options > Report.

The best way to get this faster is repeatedly play Advanced Mode on any difficulty you feel comfortable with. Endless Mode is also a good choice.

The final overall score needed for Level 50 is 500,000,000.
