Piofiore: Episodio 1926 Alternativa Walkthrough

ROUTE TIPS & NOTES

  • Episodio Alternativa continues the story following the Finale of Piofiore Fated Memories and is divided into two distinct parts:
    • Short Story part featuring a series of disconnected short episodes taking place from January to August. There aren’t any choices except for in August and it doesn’t really matter what you pick (but I recommend choosing them all for the different interactions).
      • Some of the short stories have CGs, those are indicated in the guide below.
    • Main Story takes place from September to December and features a prologue and 5 chapter “routes” for each of the characters plus an additional final “route”.
      • You can play these routes in any order you want.
      • This main story comes with a flow chart to help you track your progress
  • After completing one main story ending, Episodio 1926 -HENRI- will be unlocked.

Story Breakdown & Recommended Order (Click to reveal)
  • At the start Piofiore Episodio 1926 is divided into two sets of stories: Episodio Burlone and Episodio Alternativa.
    • Episodio Burlone is considered the “main story” and continues the events from the Best ends from Piofiore: Fated Memories. Episodio Burlone routes for Dante, Gil, Nicola, Yang, and Orlok are available from the start.
      • You can play these in ANY order, but Gil – Orlok – Nicola – Yang – Dante is the recommended order.
    • Episodio Alternativa follows the Finale end of Piofiore Fated Memories it mostly consists of short stories with the characters and can be played in any order.
      • There are “routes” for the 5 main LIs and a Finale.

Important Game Systems (Click to reveal)
  • There are some new and returning features in Piofiore: Episodio 1926 that are worth noting:
    • Meanwhile Stories are back! They’re short asides that give insight into events happening away from Lili and the LIs. There will be an indicator in the top left corner of the screen when one has been unlocked.
      • Required ones will play automatically, but optional ones will have to be manually selected. I HIGHLY RECCOMEND playing all of these unless otherwise indicated in this guide.
  • ARIA events are POV scenes that look back on events from the first game from the point of view of the LI. You’ll know an ARIA is available when you see highlighted dialogue text and an indicator prompting you on screen.
    • These are extras and can be skipped, if you do skip them you can view them later from EXTRA on the main menu.
YangVoice ActorCharacter Bio
Nobuhiko OkamotoHe’s the head of the Chinese organization “Lao-Shu”. Shrouded in mystery–he always wears a faint smile and is difficult to read. He loves to rub people the wrong way for fun. Yang is an alias, but no one knows his real name. Easily swayed by emotion and lives “in the moment”. He doesn’t think twice about the sacrifice of others if it is for his own personal enjoyment.

Ryohei KimuraSecond in command in the Falzone Family. One would never guess he’s a member of the Burlone Mafia, as he appears to be a kind-hearted and gentle person. A typical Italian man that is charming and loves women. Dante’s cousin. Lying comes as easy as breathing to him.
