==============================================================================
I. INTRODUCTION
==============================================================================

First of all, let me tell you that this game is nothing like the original 
Steambot Chronicles game for PS2. The Battle Tournamet game is a mission-based
action game with RPG elements. Your main place of action will be the Orion 
City, where you mainly do two things: accept and complete various requests,
brought to you by the Agency and participate in the Battle Tournament on your
Trotmobile. You can buy parts for your Trot, sell them and customize them.
This is one of the most important aspects of the game. You can't change your
character's clothes and you can't play various musical instruments like you
could in the original game for PS2. This is a major letdown, but oh well. I'm
here to guide you through the game and help you out in understanding its 
numerous features. As I have said, it's mostly mission-based and linear, so
there's not too much to learn.

Options: You can set the volume, text speed and control type here. You can
also go back to title screen from this menu.

2. You can save and get off your Trot at the red parking cones. They're marked
on the map as red cones. They are situated near the Employment Agency, Pola
Motors, the Coliseum and the Orion Station.

3. There are three exits out of town: to Maffei Forest (north exit), to 
Aquarius Valley (east exit), and to Kelvinheit Snowfield (west exit).

4. To move faster, hold the X button.

5. Some of the places are only enter-able without the Trot (Employment Agency,
the Flavor Nebula restaurant, etc.), i.e. you have to get off your Trot first.

6. Some of the client NPCs are not situated in the Orion City, so look for 
them elsewhere.

7. Spend the money you have earned on upgrading your Trot, you'll need those
upgrades.

8. In order to claim the reward from the Agency, you must first speak with the
client.

9. Fame Points are needed for the Battle Tournament. The more of them you 
have, the higher rank you can participate in.

10. You can't cancel Urgent requests.

In battle:

1. Press X to dash, press Circle to jump, but be aware that this will cost you
some of your fuel, of course.

2. Press L+R to guard, this helps A LOT in battles, it reduces the damage you
take.

3. Don't be lazy to kill enemies here and there, as they drop UR (Eurocchi, 
this game's currency) and Gas for your fuel tank.

4. Remember that random enemies respawn once you leave the area and come back.

5. If you want to deal some extra damage, press Triangle+Square for a spinning
attack. Note that this attack takes away some of your own HP.

==============================================================================
IV. THE WALKTHROUGH
==============================================================================

Choose "New game", and after naming your character/Trot (default names are 
Apollo/Milky Way respectively) watch a little introducting scene with the 
sailor. As I've noticed, the answers you give throughout the game don't really
change anything, so answer as you like, sometimes choosing the most surprising
ones for a quick laugh.
Approach you Trotmobile, get on it and go to the barrels and boxes for a scene
with Venus and desperado. You'll read a small tutorial on how to fight, as 
well as participate in your first battle. It's very easy, just hit the bandit
with your right and left hands to take him down.
To get to Venus' Shop, Pola Motors, open your map and find it marked there.
When in the shop, you'll get a quick briefing on how to customize your Trot,
blah blah blah. Let's go to the Employment Agency, to the south. Get off your
Trot by the red parking cone and save. Enter the Agency to meet Galatea. You
will get your first request - Lumber Request. Go talk to Zeus near the Jupiter
Construction (green figure on the map). Afterwards, return to Pola Motors and
purchase Flatbed Back Part and the Saw Arm Part. Exit the city via the north
exit to enter Maffei Forest.
The Peacock Trots are very weak, they die from like three hits, but watch out
for theit missiles. The Fine Wood is found in the E corner of the map (lock on
it and press the button, corresponding your saw-arm). Once you have the wood,
return to the Orion City and deliver it to Zeus. Go to the Agency to claim the
reward - 300 UR and 10 Fame Points. New jobs will be available from now on.

Request #1. Interview a Popular Chef
Location: Orion City
Reward: 300 UR

Talk to Ceres at Orion Sun Times. Go to Flavor Nebula. Get out of your Trot,
and enter the restaurant. Talk to Sol at the bar. Choose: "Chef Sol and the As
to Zs". You will obtain Sol Notes. Report back to Ceres. Go to the Agency to
claim the reward - 300 UR and 10 Fame Points.

Request #2. Wood Delivery
Location: Maffei Forest
Reward: 400 UR

To find Vega, go to Maffei Forest and proceed to the Lakeside area. He will
give you Hard Wood. You can also repair your Trot here. Deliver the wood to
Zeus at Jupiter Construction. Go to the Agency to claim your reward - 400 UR 
and 10 Fame Points.

Request #3. Tasty Spring Water
Location: Maffei Forest
Reward: 500 UR

Go talk to Sol at the restaurant. Equip a Tank as your Back Part. Go to Maffei
Forest, talk to Vega at the lakeside area to obtain Tasty Spring Water. Bring
it to Sol. Go to the Agency to claim your reward - 500 UR and 10 Fame Points.

Request #4. Another Wood Delivery
Location: Maffei Forest
Reward: 400 UR

Equip the Flatbed, go to Maffei Forest, talk to Vega. You'll obtain Hard Wood.
Deliver it to Zeus. Go to the Agency to claim your reward - 400 UR and 10 Fame
Points.

Request #5. Urgent: Zeus Needs Wood
Location: Maffei Forest
Reward: 700 UR

Go to Maffei Forest. In the lakeside area, open the chest with 300 UR (south-
east corner). Go to Zig Zag Hills area, open the chest with 300 UR. Proceed to
the Deep Forest area, get 500 UR in the west corner of the map and cut some
Magmaple near the sign. Go back to the previous area to be ambushed by the
three Dark Scorpions. The battle is easy, treat them like the ordinary Peacock
Trots, as they only shoot missiles at you. 5 hits for each one should be more
than enough to win the fight. Deliver the Magmaple to Athena, Zeus' daughter.
Go to the Agency to claim your reward - 700 UR and 20 Fame Points.

Now that you have done all the beginner quests, you have enough Fame Points to
enter the D rank of the Battle Tournament. Enter the Coliseum and talk to
Larissa, Galatea's sister. Once ready, begin participating in D rank battles.
You can leave the Coliseum and save between them, which is very convenient.

Request #26. The Legend of Farmost Ruins
Location: A hidden location
Reward: 2000 UR

Ok, this seems to be the most frustrating quest in the whole game. Before 
attempting it, make sure you have a properly equipped Trotmobile with good
close range and long range weapons. I used shotgun for this mission. Talk to
the archaelogist expert near the Orion Station. Choose "Yes" to be transported
to the dungeon. A few words about the ruins:

- There are a total of 10 floors here.
- To get to the next floor, you have to defeat a certain enemy that drops the
key AND find a legendary part.
- The parts are found in chests scattered around the floors. Some chests have
Eurocchi in them, but some have traps.
- The door to the next floor is ALWAYS in the north.
- There are some new enemies every 2 floors or so. There are Peacocks on the
first two levels, some bombers starting from third, snowball throwers start
from the fourth, while the two most dangerous enemies - Flamethrowing Trots
and cannonball shooters start from levels 6 and 8 respectively.

Alright, so you get the jist, right? You find a part, find a key and proceed
to the next level. If you're having some trouble with the cannonball shooters,
I recommend waiting until they fire a cannonball at you, jumping on them
at the same time and hitting them with you close range weapon while still in
mid air. And try to reduce the damage to the minimum possible on the lower
floors, so that you'll save it fot the latter floors. Once you have collected
all the ten parts, the archaelogist will combine them to make an Excalibur 
weapon. Now that's a nice reward! Go to the Agency to claim the reward - 2000 
UR and 20 Fame Points.

Once you have finished all the quests here, go to the Arena and start fighting
battles in Rank B.

The Final Request. Crush the Dark Scorpions
Location: Aquarius Valley
Reward: 10000 UR

Go to Aquarius Valley, mining ground area for a scene. You'll fight none other
than Diphda. Be careful with his missiles, avoid them by jumping over them. 
After you deplete his HP to about 1/5, a scene will take place. After it, go
to Orion City and talk to Diphda, who's standing in front of the Pegasus Trot-
mobile company. Make sure you are fully prepared to meet the final enemy. 
Equip some good long range weapon such as Missile Launcher, for example. Enter
the factory. After a long scene you'll fight your your first battle with 
Oppenheimer. He can be hard at times, so dash and hit him constantly. Another
long scene follows. Now the time to strike!

Final Boss: Oppenheimer

This fight is rather challenging. Oppenheimer's Trot has two weak spots - on
his belly and on the top. To destroy his belly weak spot, simpley jump and hit
it with your close range weapon. Be careful with his spikes, and dash when he
jumps and lands on you. Move away from him and start firing missiles at his 
top weak spot. It should take about 5-6 hits to get destroyed. Then the last
part of the battle comes - he starts throwing homing missiles at you, so avoid
them by dashing and lauching a missile counterattack at him. Be careful with
your fuel tank, cause if you run out of fuel, you're pretty much screwed. If
you can, guard when you see that the missile shot is unavoidable. You should
have enough HP to withstand a few shots. If you can't defeat him, retry a few
times to get the hang of the battle, and I'm sure you'll defeat him soon 
enough.

With the Oppenheimer's defeat, congratulate yourself on beating this game. You
may get one of the three endings, depending on your answers to Venus in the
final dialogue. If you tell her that you don't care for her, she'll invite you
to stay in town, and if you accept her offer, you'll get the true ending. At
least that's what I think the true ending is.
I haven't seen the bad ending personally, but I heard it's achieved by losing
the final battle in Arena (?), so that Venus dumps you for Diphda. Correct me
if I'm wrong here.

Anyway, thanks for reading my guide, I hope it helped, and if you liked it,
please recommend it to other GameFAQs users.

V. FRQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. When was this game released?
 - Japan: 07/10/2008
   US: 06/30/2009

2. Is it similar to the PS2 Steambot Chronicles?
 - Well yeah, but IMO, Atlus did a mistake by removing all the juicy and nice
features of the original from this game. I mean, no musical instruments, no 
character customization, no non-linearity? WTF? XD

3. How long is this game?
 - 15 hours at most.

4. Any similar games?
 - I think Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology is pretty similar.

5. Are there any anime cutscenes in this game?
 - No.

6. Are there some cameos from the original game?
 - Yeah, you will meet Connie, Vanilla (in the Arena), and also you'll hear
about Dan the Lion (I guess you know who it is) and Dr. Nutmeg.

7. I just can't defeat the final boss! Help me...
 - Use the strategy I mentioned above or if everything else fails, equip two
missiles with fully upgraded ammo, so that they will last you for a far longer
time.
