Achievement Guide (In English!)
I've locked down how to get all of the achievements in the game now, I'll make an official guide. I'm not going to translate the achievement names, they're fairly irrelevant and simple.
This is for beating the first level (Forest/Ice level) in Arcade Mode with any character.
This is for beating the second level (Night Time) in Arcade Mode with any character.
This is for beating the third level (Chinese level) in Arcade Mode with any character.
This is for beating the fourth level (Island/Sea level) in Arcade Mode with any character.
This is for beating the fifth level (Japanese level) in Arcade Mode with any character.
This is for finishing Arcade Mode and encountering the "true" final boss. To do so, you need to have at least 2 minutes left on your timer by the time you finish your 3rd stage in Arcade Mode and have to clear your 4th stage to encounter the true final boss. It is a large flower thing with lots of claws and eyes.
This is for beating arcade mode and only encountering the semi-final boss, which is a series of 3 large flying ships, instead of the large flower boss. To do this, just end a stage in Arcade Mode with less than a minute on your timer, it may take a stage or two, but it will eventually throw you into this battle.
This is for fighting the harder version of the Ice Boss in Arcade Mode. Harder versions of bosses become available once you've beaten the normal form at the end of its corresponding stage. After you've beaten a boss, scroll through your stage choices and you'll see a colorful illustration of the boss you just beat as a selection. There is one of these for all the bosses.
This is for fighting the harder version of the Dual Fox/Tank boss in Arcade Mode.
This is for fighting the harder version of the Dragon boss in Arcade Mode.
This is for fighting the harder version of the Ship/Bird boss in Arcade Mode.
This is for fighting the harder version of the Japanese Warrior Statue boss in Arcade Mode.
This is for fighting the harder version of the 3 large ships boss in Arcade Mode. This becomes available after fighting 2 of the other boss hard versions in the same play-through.
This is for clearing Arcade Mode with Mamoru without using any continues. This has to be done on at least 3-star difficulty, but life can be set to 5 and time can be set to 10:00 to be safe, but you MUST encounter the true boss, or the flower boss. Encountering the 3 ships for a final boss does not count for the achievement. All of this applies to the other characters' 1CC (One Credit Clear) achievements as well.
This is for clearing Arcade Mode with Mayuno without using any continues. This is by far the hardest 1CC achievement to get of all the characters, her shots just do not lend themselves well to killing enemies quickly, you ususally have to move her character around a lot to line up her shot helpers correctly to do a lot of damage, and this obviously can result in running into things.
This is for clearing Arcade Mode with Kinya without using any continues.
This is for clearing Arcade Mode with Beniko without using any continues.
This is for clearing Arcade Mode with Fururu without using any continues.
This is for clearing Arcade Mode with any charcter on 5-star difficulty WITHOUT CONTINUING. Life can be set to 5 and time to 10:00 like the other 1CC achievements.
This is for clearing Arcade Mode with any character on at least 3-star difficulty WITHOUT GETTING HIT AT ALL. That means not even one hit, and getting hit and then healing the hit with a heart does not count.
This is for when you fully run out of time in Arcade Mode, these annoying little Grim Reaper guys (displayed in the achievement picture) follow you around and hurt you until you die, and you cannot hurt them.
This is for pushing start on the Press Start screen and opening the Main Menu!
This is for entering your initials as a high score.
This is for stringing together a 1000 combo of flower candies. These are the little candies that often come out of enemies and treasure chests. You just have to get a lot of them in a row and fairly rapidly to keep the combo going, or it will drop back down to zero. I'm still having a little trouble with this, but when you watch professional Japanese players, they get like 4500 combo with ease, so there has to be a method to the madness.
This is for collecting 1 million of the little flower candy/confetti pieces between all game modes.
This is for using a full Noroi charge shot 108 times.
This is for doing a "self-curse" power-up mode 108 times. This is when you simply press B button to lay a field on the ground and then walk into it to make your shots much more powerful.
This is for completing the gallery. This is done by completing arcade mode with every character, and some of the characters also have pictures unlocked by clearing Arcade Mode with that character without continuing, as well as completing all of story mode including both endings. Also, you may have to beat certain stages with certain characters in Story Mode to get a certain picture.
