Difficulty achievements

What's the best way to minimize playthroughs? Does 199 mode stack with the difficulties in some way? Is hard available right away?

1999 Mode is the hardest mode. It is available by entering the Konami code on the main menu.

If you are looking to only do 1 playthrough, you'll have to start on 1999 Mode, and make sure to find the collectibles and not use the Vending Machines, which will be pretty difficult for the average player.

So 1999 mode stacks with the others as a 4th difficulty? I have no problem starting on easy/normal to complete most of the achievements, then doing a final playthrough on 1999, but I don't want to start on easy or normal if I'lll have to play through on hard AND 1999.

Yeah, the achievements stack up to the difficulty you are currently on.

Seems like 1999 mode is pretty easy then.
