Tips and Tricks

True Ending
Thankfully, this is much more straightforward than the first game. Simply beat the game with both Gunvolt and Copen, then replay the final stage with either character. After beating the “final” boss you’ll have a new stage called “Prayer” to complete that consists entirely of a two-part boss fight. The first part is pretty straightforward; in the second you can only break the boss’ supercharge with a skill; be sure to inflict as much damage as possible during the brief window of vulnerability as the ultimates in the third phase can be very dangerous!

Note that to see the full story you’ll need to beat this final stage with both Copen and Gunvolt. After you’ve done this, you”ll unlock the secret missions for both characters, as well as the Score Attack and Speedrun modes on the title screen.

Secret extra scene
Complete 80% of all the Challenges with both Gunvolt and Copen, then beat the True Ending again for an extra bonus scene.
