    This is a missable achievement in chapter 3.
    This guide is from the guide I used on the ps4 version from psnprofiles.

    After leaving The Grand in Chapter 3, your objective will be to head over to Odyssey, but before you do so, there are three NPC's scattered around Sotenbori you can talk to in order to gain information that will be useful for the negotiation with Yamagata. Check the map below for the locations of the NPC's; they've been numbered. They can be spoken to in any order. Here's a pic from psnprofiles

    Note: It's recommended that you make a save before you enter the club because it's possible to mess up the next part.

    After you've spoken to all three NPC's, enter Odyssey and continue on until you're seated at a table and given the chance to look around. Now you must look around the club and check everything you can such as the 2 tables that are filled, the empty one right next to them and the table right next to you. I don't know if looking at Mr. Libido dancing on the stairs dancing counts but look at him as well just to make sure. Once this is done, continue on with the story. You will receive this achievement when you enter The Grand near the beginning of Chapter 4.

    Dr TchockThis isn't unlocking for me as well. I reloaded a save I had from before I went into Odyssey. I talked to all three people for the information beforehand, I make sure to look at all 5 things (did one run looking at just the 4 tables, same result) and got to the Grand in Ch 4 where the doorman greeted me and said all the things confirming that I should be getting the achievement but it doesn't unlock.

    Edit: I even had a save from right when Ch3 starts, right at the intro title card of the chapter. Blew through the chapter again and followed this guide to a T, even went to the informants in the order on the map here, got all the same dialogue indicating that I should be getting the achievement (the doorman couldn't believe it, he said the trade wasnt fair to Odyssey because we got Nozomi, their number 2, and some other girls), but nothing.

    For the people it worked for, what platform are you playing on?

    good Super manIt seems like all versions on Xbox had a problem if you had instant-on as your power mode on Xbox. Also had people saying if you dashboard quit the game without exiting to the menu it affects achievements.

    Dr TchockThat did the trick! I saved my game just before going into the Grand in Ch 4, and ran around doing side stuff in the off chance some solution would pop up here. Following your advice, I saved, exited the game to title, quit the game from the dashboard while it was on the title screen, and loaded the save back up. Went into the Grand and achievement popped! Thank you for that tip!

    I have played and gotten all the achievements in Kingdom Come Deliverance and the exact same bug was present where instant on would screw up some achievement tracking, except it was much much worse of a problem in that game.

    good Super manI never knew about that problem in Kingdom come Deliverance but people on the threads on this game were complaining about this and found the problem a few days after launch. I sent this to sega support hopefully it gets fixed soon.

    FF Square EnixI messed it up first time but have carried on with the game quite a bit, so I am going back to a save I made before entering odyssey to get the achievement, what worries me is will this mess up the win all achievements achievement as it will be on a different save file??

    Apostle92627I just went back to the game (started completely over as well, to refresh my memory) because I really enjoyed Kiwami. I made it back to the spot where I'm supposed to get the achievement, and it... ahem... unlocked. clap
