You can access everything in this page with a hex editor and a decrypted save from this game. It is advised to download HxD as your hex editor, however you can use any that you are comfortable with. These steps are for the PlayStation 3 version.
- 1. Download a hex editor such as HxD. Any hex editor will do.
- 2. Decrypt your save file with something like Brute Force Save Data.
- 3. Go somewhere around offset 0x36 in your decrypted save file with your hex editor.
- 4. Once at somewhere around offset 0x36 you should see something like this in the text section of your hex editor: m3500. Depending on where you saved, this text and offset will be different. You will see this text "m3500" somewhere around that offset if you have saved in Reverie Corridor - Base.
- 5. Once you have found that text, in the hex section of your hex editor, not the text section, overwrite that spot with this hex string: 613031333700. This will take you to a blank map.
- 6. Save your edit in your hex editor.
- 7. Re-encrypt your save file.
- 8. Load your game.
- 9. Save your game (while inside the blank map). Only do this step once.
- 10. Repeat step 5 each time you want to appear in a map of your choice, but now with any hex string in this page. After that, go through the steps: 6, 7, and 8.
Doing these steps will ensure you that the maps in this page load correctly. You do not need to repeat loading a blank map each time. If you end up saving again by accident, it is advised to repeat loading and then saving inside the blank map again.

This map is mostly the same as the one in Trails of Cold Steel, however this one has more objects and a few unknown monster models in it. This map also contains a donut ring.

a0195 (Animation Test Map 10)
Another map that contains a lot of NPCs. Speaking to Towa will make Sara move from side to side.
a0196 (Animation Test Map 11)
See if there is any unused animations here.
Another map that contains a lot of NPCs. Speaking to Towa will make various NPCs animate, such as Rean grabbing Osborne's collar. It's unclear if the animation where Claire hugs Rean and where Sharon sucks Rean's finger is unused or not.

a0501 (Vehicle Viewing Map 2)
Clarify if there is anything unused in this map.
This map contains all of the Soldats and Divine Knights in the game.
Extra Test Maps
Unsorted test maps that don't quite fit any category.
a0012 (Unused Trista)
This map appears to contain old dialog from the first game when speaking to NPCs. This version of Trista does not have any trees and the layout is slightly different.
This map contains a few Cryptids and Soldats.
This map contains the Railway Military Police trains. That's all this map appears to contain.
This map cannot be normally loaded as it is missing assets no longer present on the disc. When loaded, you will appear in Celdic's train station with the Eisengraf stationed at it. There isn't anything to do here.
Unfortunately, this time around there isn't as much unused maps as the first game had.
e7090 (Unfinished Courageous - 5F 1)
A version of the Courageous with a different map layout where most of the floors seem to blend into each other.
e7091 (Unfinished Courageous - 5F 2)
A version of the Courageous with a different map layout where all of the floors seem to blend into each other.
e9900 (Infinity Labyrinth)
An early map of the Reverie Corridor or possibly a planned extension of it. This map crashes when trying to normally load it as it is referencing assets that are no longer present in the game. The assets in this map that had to be replaced was the sky and warp gate. Walking through the gate will crash the game.
Selecting Regular will remove all NPCs from the map. Selecting Reverie Corridor will remove all of the Phantasmal Mirror party members. Selecting Infinity Labyrinth will put all of the Phantasmal Mirror party members back along with Claimh Solais and Grianos. The option, GAMESTART does not function. Speaking to Geroge will allow you to change Quartz and rest.
Below is the full list of NPCs and party members in this map.
dorothe celine george rean alisa eliot laura machias emma jusis fie gaius millium angelica elise alfin towa sara tovar (Toval) claire sharon crow rixia altina clotilde agertlum clausoras (Claimh Solais) glianos (Grianos)
c2000 (Unused Crossbell City)
This version of Crossbell is similar to the one seen in the title screen with Rixia and Lloyd. However, this isn't the same map. That title screen map is e3060. This version has more of a finished layout and has doors that open.
m4551 (Infernal Castle - Highest Stratum (Unused)
It's unclear what this map would have been. It might have been an early elevator map for the Infernal Castle. This map does not load under normal circumstances as some textures are no longer in the game which would normally result in a crash. Besides the elevator scrolling in the background with missing textures, there is nothing else to see or do in this map. This map has no scene data either which loads text, NPCs, and events.
m4559 (Infernal Castle - Highest Stratum (Unused)
It's unclear what this map would have been. Another map that would normally crash the game due to missing textures / objects. This map was completely missing its entire map data, as such it needed to be replaced in order to load. The only thing that would be normally in this map would be the grey ground, and the orb charging station. The background here is not how it would have looked.
Inside Ymir Bathhouse
Normally you cannot enter here, however it appears to be fully textured and can be entered from the hotsprings when inside the springs itself which is not normally possible to control Rean in that map.
