“A Parting Greeting” Secret Audio
The “A Parting Greeting” secret audio will also be available under the game’s settings after clearing the Ending E story route. The secret audio is simply a message from the game’s main characters to the player, though a specific line spoken by one of the protagonists invokes some interesting theories and speculations.
The Ending E story route is also the only time you can unlock the Daredevil trophy. Be sure to get it before clearing it if you intend to acquire all achievements in the game.
