Writing a guide for The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails was a bit weird since it’s not your traditional Trails adventure.
So, I decided that instead of doing an exhaustive breakdown of each stage, which would be pretty needless, highlighting the collectibles I found difficult to obtain, the sidequests, Mishy locations, and other more specific content would make this guide compact and digestible. The majority of the collectibles you’ll find are self-explanatory, not requiring guide-written directions.
Here are some general notes to keep in mind while you play:
- Make sure to adopt Nora as soon as possible and talk to her after every stage for free collectibles.
- I made some mentions of stages that you should revisit after you get new movement abilities, but just keep this metroidvania element in mind.
- Make sure to cook most dishes at least once to unlock more lunchbox slots.
- You can cook dishes from the main menu.
- Ingredient locations are told to you via the main menu, assuming you’ve collected what you need to find at least once.
- Every stage, sans the few bigger ones, has three crystals, one chest, and one mission to complete, alongside a special item granted once you clear the stage after achieving everything in it.
- The main menu has an in-game achievement tracker you should take note of, as it updates in real time.
- Sidequests are usually obtained via Nayuta’s mailbox unless stated otherwise.
If there is anything egregiously erroneous or absent from this guide, please inform me so I can correct it.
This guide has some spacing that may look off, but I mainly wanted to avoid jumbling non-matching information together.
Thanks to the guide of this game’s PSP version by Masked_Lenheim, as I used it to track the numeric values needed for Museum gifts, though I missed a few inconsequential ones.
You’ll eventually get your first two (mandatory) sidequests when you gain control.
First, though, visit the graves of Nayuta’s parents by exiting north from the town and interacting with the dog there.
Afterward, on the left side of town, just before the screen transition, walk to the gap between the wall and the leftmost house to spot Mishy. He’ll be at hidden spots throughout the game, and finding him each time will eventually culminate in an achievement.
Lunchbox Support Request
Speak to Dorado near the center of the town’s intersection. Head to Eartha at Nayuta’s place and then learn about the cooking mechanic. Report back to Dorado to conclude the quest. You’ll get 50 Mira.
Speak to Master Orbus by exiting to the left of the town and do the combat tutorial.
A bunch of story progress, and your first stage will occur, with more story afterward.
After clearing the first stage, Sunshade Trail – Spring, you can head back to Remnant Isle for sidequests via the mailbox.
Head to the south side of town that has the port and head to the far right, where you’ll spot Mishy for the second time, with him now behind a wooden post.
Speak to Bell in the house on the right side of the port. Walk up the stairs of the Sunset General Store to find the first note. Nayuta’s telescope at his place has the second note. Talk to Dorado in the center of town for a note. Lastly, exit town to the west and examine the boat near Master Orbus. You’ll gain the Chewy Bone as a reward.
You can get the Star Frag. (Floral Bounty) by speaking to Aquela to the far south of town at the docks.
Head to the new museum on the town’s south side. You can donate collectibles here at fixed intervals for Mira.
Gift of Gratitude
Speak to Sculp outside the house just south of the Sunset General Store. Then speak to Sasha in the nearby general store. Nayuta realizes a stage may hold the objective.
Before leaving Remnant Isle, you can buy notable items from Sasha. I recommend buying the Hair Clip for its increased collectible drop rate. Remember to buy the Dog House as soon as you’re able. When you do, go to the dog north of town and then interact with it repeatedly to gain collectibles for the museum. The chewy bone will give you additional items.
Giving Nora a gift or completing a stage will enable her to give you museum items whenever you interact with her, so be sure to always do that.
Also, don’t forget to talk to Orbus when making numeric strides in the combat notebook for new techniques.
The Eternal Rose needed for the Gift of Gratitude quest will be found in the Sacred Wind – Spring stage. A Jewel Tomato and 100 Mira will be given by Sculp when you report back to him.
Keep progressing until you beat the first boss, concluding Chapter 1. You need to get the first skill from Orbus to be able to fight this boss, which allows you to swing in the air.
When back on Remnant Isle, head up north from the town and down the stairs to find Mishy for the third time, sitting as far back as you can walk, right near the stairs.
After you gain access to the Astrolabe, head to Remnant Isle for side stuff.
Go to the Stargzer’s Tavern & Inn, and go into the second room on the second floor to speak to Dr. Hydel to trigger the hidden Helping with Checkups quest.
Head to the south of town at the docks and go to the right house to speak to Carina. Speak to Mrs. Janis in the elder’s house on the far left house of the town. Talk to Kenni in the center house of town that has the cow near it. Go to the Sunset General Store and speak to Sasha four times (remember to talk with the quest button) to complete the quest. You’ll get the Flying Machine Model as a reward.
Supreme Fruit Wine
Speak to Ada at the Meteor Workshop, then head to the Stargazer’s Tavern & Inn and speak to Merchant Antlia to obtain the Century Peach Sapling, which we’ll grow on Terra.
Go to Altapea and play the first stage’s Spring theme, Sunshade Trail – Spring. The planting spot for the sapling is right where the third dark crystal is at the dead end. Finish the stage, then change the season to Summer, and reach the same spot you were just at in Sunshade Trail – Summer. Ensure you’re properly equipped because the enemies will be considerably stronger. Deliver the peach to Ada to receive 600 Mira.
Giving the museum 16 unique items will give you the Glasses head part for Noi.
You’ll get the Summer Art Cyclone for Noi by defeating the Storm Parrot enemies in Lakeshore Forest – Summer stage in Altapea.
Giving Orbus 12 seals from the combat notebook will award the Downward Thrust.
In the Sacred Way – Summer stage in Altapea, Noi will get the Gear Buster skill naturally. This will let you break hard objects. You can replay stages that had barriers in place that you can now pass.
After getting the Gear Buster skill, head back to Remnant Isle.
Searching for Island Specialties
Go back to Terra and enter the Temple–Sanctum at the end of Altapea. Talk to Gio and head back to Remnant Isle. Speak to Chief Serpens in his house at the far left of town to get Dried Squid. Speak to Columba in the Meteor Workshop to get the Isle Loco Moco. Lastly, go to where Orbus usually resides, out the western exit of the town, and examine the water just south of him [screenshot] to get Ruins Rock Salt. Report back to Gio for Noi to get the Summer Art Sol Erase.
Fruitful Soil can be found in the Lakeshore Forest – Summer stage in a chest behind a tree stump that can be broken with the Gear Buster. Give it to Sculp in the inn in Remnant Isle. This will make new vegetables purchasable from the Sunset General Store.
Sunshade Trail – Summer, Sacred Way – Spring, Sunshade Trail – Spring, and Temple of Altea are able to be fully completed at this point.
With the Gear Buster, you can do everything possible in Lakeshore Forest – Summer.
With the Gear Buster, you can destroy a breakable tree stump near the end of Lakeshore Forest – Spring that has a Star Frag. (Sea Blue) in a chest, letting you fully complete the stage.
Sacred Way – Summer has an optional block puzzle at the start that leads to a crystal. First, push the bottom block left. Stand atop it, then push the middle block right. Don’t move, and push the block next to you to the right. Drop down, and push the leftmost block to the right in the one-space gap between the line of blocks you formed and where you’re trying to place a block on top of. You can’t get the second crystal here yet.
So, every stage in Altapea can be fully completed now sans Sacred Way – Summer.

Giving Orbus 30 combat seals will give you the Mid-Air Dodge.

When you first gain control, a sidequest is available.
Speak to Baron Victor upstairs in the Stargazer’s Tavern & Inn, then Ada in the Meteor Workshop. Then talk to Captain Puppis at the far south edge of town at the docks. At the entrance of the docks, Aquela will be standing, so talk to her; you’ll need to spend 2,000 Mira. Lastly, go to the entrance of the Garden in Terra to finish the quest.

Additionally, before the metal bridge, use Gear Shield to cross the lava to get the second and third crystals. The second crystal is also where Argol’s first requested fragment is.

After several scenes, you’ll be able to do Temple of La Worg. In here, the second half of the stage, where you make the initial right at the first fork, you’ll find Argol’s last fragment of power atop a series of blocks. You can’t yet fully complete this stage as the second chest is out of reach.

After hitting the ninth cube, backtrack to where the previous cube was and platform east for the chest. After hitting the tenth crystal, backtrack to where required enemies previously spawned (just head down the platforms and go north as soon as you can) for a brief new path housing the third crystal.
Going to Orbus with 84 combat seals will give you Knowledge of One-Handed Swords 2.
You can do Helliograd – Middle Level next. Note that you can fall through the glowing rails if you don’t use Gear Drive, one of which leads to the first crystal.

In Chapter 5, you can do the Winter stages for La Worg.
You’ll have two new sidequests.
Where is the Heir?
Head to the Stargazer’s Tavern & Inn and speak to Mrs. Mensa. Talk to Mishy at the beach where Orbus is; he’s hidden behind the pillar to the far right. Exit to the north of town to the cape and talk to Mishy at the far right of the area near the water and graves.
Examine the Astrolabe in Terra and go to Ancient Reeds – Winter in La Worg. For the second crystal here, jump onto the slight gap of the available eastern wall after turning back from the first crystal. Open the chest near the end of the stage where the Administrator was formerly imprisoned. Report back to Mrs. Mensa to receive a Pink Diamond.
The Origin Spirit’s Request
Speak to the Spirit at the start of the Temple – Entrance in La Worg for another monster.
Going to Orbus with 174 combat seals will give you the Radiant Technique, Falling Petals.
Defeat the Serpentaire in Resonant Faults Winter for Noi to get the Winter Art Blizzard. This should be Noi’s final Art.
Giving 128 unique items to the museum will give you the Headdress and the First-Class Collector achievement.
Chest in Hell’s Gate Winter in La Worg gives Star Frag. (Starlight). The puzzle to reach this has very transparent directions on the sign. This is the final new stage in the game.
You’ll unlock more Astrolabe bonuses for doing this, notably higher level limits.
Reporting to Orbus one final time with 180 combat seals will give you the Sword of the Cosmos.
You should also have every Star Fragment now, so examine them all in the Septluxian Scope in Nayuta’s room for an achievement.
Emerald, Angel Statue, and Silver Armor: Body are only from Nora.
You should be able to take care of all four Spirit Requests now. The quest descriptions tell you exactly which stages and Seasons they appear. If you’re underprepared, cook some Demon Hot Pots to gain more levels. Winning against each boss will give you Zemurian Ore. Talk to Columba in the Meteor Workshop once you have all four.
With that, you should be good to go.
