Steps to Unlock the Secret Ending After Clearing the Required Subquests

Once you have cleared the quests indicated above, progress through the main story until you reach the Temple of Eternity and are able to make a choice on which ending you will get (alignment lock).

1 Advance to the Metatron boss fight and defeat him.
2 When you are able to choose the path (alignment lock) to take, choose “I will destroy the throne.
3 Progress through the story until you encounter Abdiel and defeat her.
4 Nuwa will appear after the battle, indicating that you have met the conditions for the fourth ending. If she does not appear, you will not get the secret ending.
5 Choose “Create a world for humanity alone.
6 Watch the secret ending.

Other Information on Getting the Secret Ending

  • It seems that the secret ending can be accessed even on the first playthrough. As such, you do not need to be in New Game Plus (NG+) to unlock it.
  • It seems that you can still get the secret ending regardless of your character alignment before you lock in your final choice in the Temple of Eternity. You will, however, need to pay 666,000 Macca if you decide to go for the secret ending (by picking Destroy the Throne after defeating Metatron) if your choices in the story are not in alignment with Nuwa and Shohei Yakumo.
