Route Tips & Notes

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.
  • The final route Episodio 1926 – Henri- unlocks after you finish both Episodio Burlone & Alternativa.
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.
