Can we get any details on the Story Mode path requirements? Usually you open certain paths by doing different things.

Well, it's probably like in old CT.

Choose a path in-between fights, win or lose a match, win by distortion finish, win throughout story mode by achieving a number of distortion finishes, win by astral finish, win or lose by time-out, achieve a double down, getting a perfect, etc.

I just remember some of the GG requirements, like "land this attack this many times" or "win with this amount of health or above/below"

Pretty much all done, just wondering should I just post exactly what to do or would it be preferred I show every fight like I did for the CT one?

Story Mode summary:
-You start story mode with only Ragna's story available.
-The stories for the other characters are unlocked by getting the Clear End from another character's story.
-None of the story paths require astral heat or time up wins.
-You also don't have to lose every goddamn fight to get 100%, in fact you don't have to lose unless it leads to another ending.
-Every character besides Haku=men has three endings. The three endings are True, Alternate, and Joke. Alternate endings are also accompanied by a "Help me Doctor Kokonoe" segment after the ending for the character. Haku=men only has two because he didn't feel like having a joke ending. For whatever reason Hazama has to get his Alt ending and his Kokonoe skit seperately.

Unlockables:
-Get a clear/true ending for Ragna, Noel, Jin, Rachel, Tsubaki(not sure on this I might have caused this lol) Hakumen, and Hazama stories to unlock the True Story mode.
-Clearing True Story unlocks Mu, her stage, and her theme Sword of Doom for the other modes.
-100% a character's story mode to get the interview with their voice actor. Noel and Jin are exceptions just like CT(IE: Noel + Lambda, Jin + Hakumen) You can also get interviews with Kokonoe, Relius Clover, Jubei, Makoto, Valkenhayn, and Platina they unlock along with some characters and as you get the last couple stories 100%'d.
-Getting 100% on every story unlocks an interview with Toshimichi Mori.
-Interviews are found in the gallery by pressing R1 and scrolling down to the last option.
-MU DOES NOT HAVE A STORY MODE

Tip:
If you are going for unlocking Mu in a hurry just shoot for doing all the First paths listed. They will get you a clear for every character and get you that True Story unlocked

The order of this guide is: Ragna, Noel, Jin, Tager, Lambda, Taokaka, Bang, Carl, Litchi, Rachel, Arakune, Tsubaki, Haku=men, Hazama, and Truth End.

I generally 100% everyone, I was just curious about time out and astral wins, or any other odd circumstance wins. At least this will be a lot more fun without required losses for 100%.

The joke endings are all...weird; they feel like they're hinting at important stuff, but then it's all meta (Carl's joke route is one where he remembers hanging out with Makoto, Noel, and Tsubaki, and it felt like something that could have been scripted into the main story if it was important, but then Ragna and Rachel shows up as principals, so I'm not sure what to think of it in terms of its importance).

By the way, Hazama's joke route for the ladies.

It's less bs requirements than CT but way more talking. Seems longer in actual "legit" content.

I'll answer. All astrals are unlocked from the start. Unlimited Characters are unlocked from Score Attack or buying the DLC.

Score attack is easier though from what I understand right? Cause Ulm Ragna in Ct D: Mind posting the order?

NVM does it go like:

Bang
Tao
Tager
Carl
Noel
Arakune
Litchi
Lamda
Tsubaki
Hakumen
Hazama
Raga
Rachel

With the last 4 being ulm. I hear ragna doesn't fight Rachel though, is this true?

I'm still calling him Keeskay. :KYX:

Oh you're kidding right? I have to beat Score Attack with everyone just to get their Unlimiteds? :(

Or is it based on who I beat in Score Attack? Like for example, beating Jin gets you Unlimited Jin?

I never tried CT's score attack with an Ulm character because I want to be it legit, without cheating or using OP characters. But if Ulm Rachel or Nu doesn't kill me then Ulm Ragna does, I think I've only gotten one round on him out of all the times I've reached him.

Also Ragna fights everyone in score attack, rachel included.

I'm still calling him Keeskay. :KYX:
