Unhappy Second playthrough Eternal Sonata

Hey does anyone know who to get the second playthrough? I have beaten the game three times and have started a second playthrough at the end of each one off the screen, but it wont give me any of the second playthrough content? Any suggestions?

Are you sure that you're not in Encore? Most of the game plays exactly the same except for the tougher enemies as you progress. The way to tell if you're in Encore is to go to the party screen and see if you can select party level 6. If you can then you're in Encore.

Another hint of Encore mode is, your game saves will now have a blue badge on the right side.

If you find enemies harder, then you are already in Encore mode.

i'm a bit curious about this as well. i just beat the game and started up a new game from my cleared game save and have yet to see any of the new people to play with, etc. i tried not to jump to conclusions but i'm already on chapter 2 and still not seeing the 2nd playthrough people, etc. i have party level 6 and the little blue ribbon when i save.

do i have to load it from the clear save data or just hit new game in general? or am i just missing something?

The best ways to check if you're on the encore playthrough:
1. Check if you can select all 5/6 party levels.
2. Check if you have every score piece you got from the first playthrough
3. Check if you have the Hero's Crest

The game should a bit tougher in general too. The reason you aren't seeing all these people you think you should be is because most of them don't appear until Chapter 6 when you first have access to the teleporter. For example, there are EZI items and 2 score pieces that can be obtained in Tenuto in Chapter 6 but not Chapter 1. But as long as you talk to the grandma in Chapter 4 in the inn in Baroque, you should be fine as nothing else is missable because of the teleporter.

oh thanks ^^ this helps a lot. a guide i was following on gamefaqs had all the 2nd playthough stuff for places listed in the first chapter you reach that area, etc. so i was confused. if they show up later i feel a lot better. ^^

i was wondering because i still have all my levels, crest, score pieces, etc.

Indeed, the guide on Gamefaqs shows little 2nd playthrough subsections with things to do in your 2nd playthrough, but note that you can only do most of them (the score pieces for example) after you get to the teleporter in chapter 6.

Like before what people pointed out, check you have your score pieces etc. Incase anyone doesn't know, in order to create an encore run, load up your completed save and you will be in encore mode.

encore mode is the same as a normal run expect monsters are stronger and have higher defense and something changes in chapter 6. the only thing you get to keep between the playthroughs is your party level and score pieces.

I'm pretty sure it goes Encore automatically.

It goes into Encore when you save over your file.

And there is no difference to Encore, except for difficulty tilting and the Dolce sidequest.

Thumbs up

This link was helpful. Thanks. Like so many others, I had a guide that didn't bother to mention that most of the Encore bonuses didn't appear until around chapter 6.
