With 51 achievements to gather, Star Ocean The Second Story R is a treat for collectors. You need to play through the game twice to get all of them, and a lot of the achievements are missable, so if you’re going for completion, it’s good to be prepared. Read on to learn more about trophies in Star Ocean 2 Remake.

Star Ocean The Second Story R Trophy Count

There are 51 achievements in Star Ocean The Second Story R:

  1. 42 bronze,
  2. 5 silver,
  3. 3 gold,
  4. 1 platinum.

15 of the trophies are automatically unlocked as you progress through the story and thus unmissable, so we will not be discussing them in this guide.
