Future Blessings is a fan disc for Guardian of Rebirth, acting as more of an expansion of the story than a full-fledged sequel. As such, as soon as you start a new game, you're given the option of which extra story you'd like to start from. The choices are as follows:

  • After Story: Short stories that follow the true endings of the first game. Choose from Arsène Lupin, Abraham Van Helsing, Victor Frankenstein, Impey Barbicane, and Count Saint-Germain. There are no choices to make, and all CGs specific to these characters can be collected here.
  • Lupin's Gang: A short story in which Cardia runs into a girl her age that seems to be involved with the mafia, leading into an adventure undertaken by the group now known as "Lupin's gang." Again, this story has no choices, and takes place during the common route of the first game.
  • Herlock Sholmes: A route for Herlock Sholmes, master detective and adversary of gentleman thief Lupin, that takes place following the common route of the first game. There are some choices to be made here leading to different endings (bad, normal, and true), but all CGs can be collected by following the route to the true end.
  • Finis: A non-romantic route for Finis, who claims to be the brother of Cardia throughout the common route of the first game. Like Sholmes' route, Finis' follows the common route and has some choices that lead to different endings. While there is a trophy in the Vita version of the game for reaching a normal end (for either Sholmes or Finis), to obtain all CGs, only the true end is necessary.

As a bonus, short stories involving Delacroix II's misadventures can be found under the "Delly's Room" option in the main menu. There are eight stories in total, each unlocked following completion of a story in the main game (this includes all five After Stories, Lupin's Gang, and the two new routes). Like After Story and Lupin's Gang, there are no choices here, but there are CGs to be collected. Additionally, there are bonus CGs for clearing Lupin's Gang and obtaining all other CGs in the game.
