How early is the point of no return if I want to see the true ending?
I heard that in order to get to the true ending in this game you pretty much need a guide. But I don't want to use it too early. When is the first point of no return in the game?
Spoilers welcomed. Thanks.
There is no point of no return as long as you don't save after getting the bad/normal ending. To get the true ending, you obviously have to be on the normal path. To get the normal ending and go to the true ending path (major spoilers in here, you've been warned!):
This is for the PS2 version, but it should be a similar deal here. I think you may have to
I'd say after beating the Heaven dungeon. Correct me if it's changed (those who imported), but finishing Heaven was the first point the ending is decided, but not the last. Screw up there, and you get the bad ending. Pass the 'test' and you keep going, only to face another 'test'. That is the real difference between the true ending and the... Normal (?) ending. Just deny it's the end. Convince the game it's not ove and that there are unanswered questions, and it will open the true last dungeon.
Well since the topic itself doesn't have a spoiler warning, I hope anyone that does post spoilers uses
Basically, save your game on December 2nd.
These are basically your ending options. There are a total of 4 endings (arguably more because I think in some of them there are really minor dialogue changes, but as far as the actual ending does, it's 4)
December 3rd -
December 5th -
Also December 5th -
Once you're past December 5th if you didn't do any of that stuff, you're basically on path for the Normal ending.
As for the True Ending
ALSO, sort of an add-on to the True ending...
Hope that helps, lemme know if you have any more questions.
But yes, just save like right at December and you should be fine.

thanks a lot guys :)
It's worth noting this is no "point of no return" exactly. Picking the wrong choice immediately brings you to the ending. There no chances to save after wards so it's not possible to pick the wrong choice then accidentally save, locking you out of the ending.
