This is not a hard game by any means. It's time consuming, but not hard. The 100% collection achievement might have you feeling frustrated, but most of the time you will have no problems. Beautiful Katamari is a fun and wonderfully weird game that will keep completionists busy for quite some time.

Introduction:
Welcome to the Road Map for Beautiful Katamari, the Xbox 360 exclusive game of the katamari-series.
The game has a total of 40 achievements with a value of 1250. To get all achievements in this game you will need to download 7 extra stages at a cost of 1500 ms points:
* Mechanical Katamari (200 MSP)
* Dangerous Katamari
(200 MSP)
* Perfectly Sized Katamari (300 MSP)
* Milky Way Constellations
(200 MSP)
* The Weaver Girl (200 MSP)
* Shopping Spree (200 MSP)
* High-Calorie Katamari (200 MSP)

Some of the achievements are quite time consuming, and on top of it all we have the 100 Hours playtime achievement. On the bright side though, you will technically be working on 5-10 achievements at the same time just by playing through a single stage.
Even though its time consuming it's not hard. If you follow the Achievement Guide and this Road Map and make good use of the forums and you should be done in no time (figuratively speaking).

Step 1: Save the Universe, and Do It Fast!
The first thing you should do is finish the main story. When you complete one stage a new one will be unlocked. The gameplay might be hard at first, but you'll soon get the hang of it. By finishing a stage you will also unlock the Time Attack mode for that stage. When all the original (the non-DLC) stages are finished you should play the Time Attack on each stage where it's available.

Step 2: Family Gathering
Now it's time to start collecting! To collect all presents and cousins you need the DLC mentioned in the introduction. HERE is a guide to all presents and cousins made by the one and only Pants, and HERE is a collection of excellent walkthroughs made by ZoopSoul.

Step 3: The Calm Before the Storm

Now's a good time to mop up all smaller achievements we have overlooked so far.
Manic Roller, Responsible Roller and Non-stop Roller are easy to do if you've unlocked Eternal Mode for a stage (by getting 100 or more points in Normal Mode).
Next we go online and start unlocking the few online achievements this game has.
The online achievements are like the rest of the game; easy but time consuming. I recommend playing the House-level over and over since it's the shortest one (60 sec).
Don't worry if you keep losing; even if you lose almost every match you will probably still have collected 1,000 cookies before you have played 50 online games.

Step 4: The Pain
Now when everything else is done we'll go for the big, time consuming achievements. Start searching the stages for new items for the Collection. The name of the new items are displayed in rainbow colors when you roll them up. The easiest way to find all items on a stage is to unlock Eternal mode. When you have collected about 97% of all the items, it's a good idea to make a checklist of the remaining ones.

Use THIS thread when making your list. This makes things easier when using THIS thread. Remember to search before you post and ask. Search both for the group with number, e.g Plants 1-2-1, and the name of the object; Big Tree. HERE is another useful link for finding 100% of the collection.

While searching for all items you will get most of the playthroughs necessary for the Katamari Fan/Lover achievements (if you don't play on Eternal Mode). The remaining ones are easily completed by playing the downloadable stage Instituto Exactamundo over and over.

Astronomic Katamari can be achieved on both Chatéau Notre Desir and Schloss Kosmos. Note that to get the achievements on Chatéau Notre Desir you must both roll a big enough katamari AND collect more memories than your previous best. Also note that the more times you have completed Normal Mode on a stage, the bigger chance you have of unlocking Astronomic Katamari, since each Normal Mode play adds an extra planet/comet/thing to roll up in space.

Last but certainly not least we have the 50 and 100 hours of playtime achievements. Just leave the game running in the Princedom and wait. Even if you reach 50 or 100 hours, the achievement will not unlock untill you complete a stage, so be sure to play a stage every now and then just to see if you've gotten it.

Conclusion:
If you are missing any achievement at this point, it's probably the 100% Collection or the 50/100 hours playtime since they are secret achievements. Just check steps 1-4 again and you should see what you're missing.

Manic Roller20
Hint: Running into walls will destroy your katamari. (11) 
For this one you have to run into walls 30 times during a stage. Try to get Eternal Mode unlocked on a level (by getting a score of 100 or more), then just keep running into walls for a while and hit  to exit the level. Do this together with "Speedy Roller" by dashing into the wall.
Quick Turner10
Hint: Use Quick Turn to your advantage. 
For this one you have to use the quick turn (press in both thumbsticks) 30 times during a stage. Use the same strategy as "Manic Roller" and just jump back and forth for a minute, then exit.
Speedy Roller10
Hint: Zip through the course with Dash. (1) 
For this one you have to use the dash (move the thumbsticks forward and back) 30 times during a stage. Do this at the same time as "Manic Roller" by dashing right into a wall.
Responsible Roller30
Hint: Roll through the course without bumping into any objects. (2) 
Once again, unlock Eternal Mode for a stage, then start Eternal Mode, move forward a bit to grab one item, then quit Eternal Mode by hitting .
Non-stop Roller30
Hint: Roll through the course without stopping once. 
You should get this at the same time as "Responsible Roller" if you didn't take more than a second to end the level after getting the one item.
Online Roller5

Please see "Resident Online Roller" for more information.
Frequent Online Roller10

Please see "Resident Online Roller" for more information.
Resident Online Roller40
Play online 50 times. (35) 
These achievements all just require to play online matches, so you could join matches and just sit there in theory. However, try to do well so you can work on the cookie achievements at the same time.
100 Cookies5
Obtain 100 Cookies. (3) 
Please see "1,000 Cookies" for more information.
1,000 Cookies40
Obtain 1,000 Cookies. (26) 
Cookies are earned in the Online VS matches. Since you have to play 50 of those for the other achievements, you should probably get this along the way. Even when you lose a match, you will most likely get 20 cookies or more (in a 4 player game), so if you can stick with that average you'll get these around the same time as you finish your 50th match. If you win some matches, you'll get it faster. Look for planets with the "bonus cookies" turned on, because you can get bonuses for getting knocked out of the ring or losing the most items, so even losing can sometimes net you more cookies than winning.

Note: You can give cookies to friends by throwing them at them. If you get over 100/1,000 this way, the achievement won't unlock until you finish another game or a stage in single player.

Secret Achievements
 
50 Hours Playtime40
Played for 50 hours. (3) 
Please see "100 Hours Playtime" for more information.
100 Hours Playtime80
Played for 100 hours. (2) 
Aside from actually playing the game (which you'll get most of this time when going for the 100/200 requests and 100% completion), you can just turn your controller off and leave the game running while you sit in the Princedom. The game does not pause in this area and the clock will run. If you are paranoid that this method won't work, use a wired controller or play and charge kit, then enter a stage in Eternal Mode and let it sit that way. It does pause if the controller turns off in this area, so make sure your cord doesn't fall out.
Katamari Fan40
Completed Requests 100 times in Normal Mode. 
Please see "Katamari Lover" for more information.
Katamari Lover80
Completed Requests 200 times in Normal Mode. (4) 

You will get most of these while working on getting the presents, cousins and 100% Collection achievements, but once you're done with that if you still have not done 200 requests, just simply play Egg School (Tutorial level) over and over until you get it. You can do any request, but this is the shortest one.

Note: When you check the "Everyone's Katamari" section in space, this total refers to Eternal Modes and Time Attacks as well as your Normal Modes, so you will most likely need to get that number higher than 100/200, but it should give you an idea of how far you are.

Collection 100%80
Roll up 100% of the Collection. (7) 

There are 3409 items to collect in the game. You can check your progress from the tree on the main island. They are split into different groupings. The best thing to do is unlock Eternal Modes. That way, you can roll the levels in all different ways and not worry about getting the size requirements. Once you're bored or too big to pick anything else up, simply hit  to save and exit the level.

Some things you can no longer get credit for if you are too large, so try to move to new areas as soon as you can, as well as replaying levels so you can roll different areas at different sizes. Some things only show up in certain levels (even if the levels start you in the same area, there will be different people and things lying around), so make sure you play all the levels over again.

Note: Seadome and Schloss Cosmos seem to have most of the items, so play those often.

Katamari Perfectionist100
Completed all Requests in Normal and Time Attack Mode. (2) 

Once you finish a level, it will open the Time Attack mode for that level. You can't fail these, so simply finish each Time Attack and you'll get the achievement.

Note: There are only 10 Time Attack levels. Egg School, Roller Roaster and Chateau Notre Desir do not have Time Attack modes.

 
 
DLC: Mechanical Katamari | Dangerous Katamari | Perfectly Sized Katamari | Milky Way Constellations | The Weaver Girl | Shopping Spree | High-Calorie Katamari
Cost: $6.99 USD Achievements: 3 Points: 250
 
All Presents80
Download stages and collect all Presents. 

The best way to search for presents is to unlock Eternal Mode for a stage. This lifts your time constraint so you can really scrounge around each area. Once you pick up a present in Eternal Mode, you can simply hit  to leave the level and it will save. If you get the present in Normal mode, you have to finish the level and hit the target size for it to save. Time Attack mode you also have to finish, but those are impossible to fail.

Please refer to this thread for Present locations.

Note: The seven levels you need to download to be able to finish this final achievement will cost 1500 points. They are:

  • Mechanical Katamari (200)
  • Dangerous Katamari (200)
  • Perfectly Sized Katamari (300)
  • Milky Way Constellations (200)
  • The Weaver Girl (200)
  • Shopping Spree (200)
  • High-Calorie Katamari (200)

 

All Cousins80
Download stages and find all Cousins. 

Use the same strategies for the Presents achievements to find Cousins.

Please refer to this thread for Cousin locations.

Note: The seven levels you need to download to be able to finish this final achievement will cost 1500 points. They are:

  • Mechanical Katamari (200)
  • Dangerous Katamari (200)
  • Perfectly Sized Katamari (300)
  • Milky Way Constellations (200)
  • The Weaver Girl (200)
  • Shopping Spree (200)
  • High-Calorie Katamari (200)

 

Astronomic Katamari90
Download stages and make a katamari over 1,500,000km. (2) 

All the previous sizes will come while doing the normal requests during the game. For this final achievement, you must download a few DLC stages and play them a few times (the Calorie stage and the Dangerous stage are very good), then replay Schloss Cosmos ON NORMAL to get this. This does not unlock playing Eternal mode.
