The games achievements will have you play arcade mode at least once, plus a bit of online multiplayer. Most of your time will be spent offline, and the majority of cumulative tasks can be done easily in a local match with a second controller.
All the achievements in this game are tied to in-game challenges. Challenges with an achievement tied to them are marked with an asterisk in the challenge menu. Take note that Singleplayer and Multiplayer modes have their own sets of challenges. Most challenges you can do in either mode, while some are specific to each mode.
Challenges that can be done in both modes aren’t combined. For example, there’s a challenge that requires you to perform 75 parries. You have to do all 75 parries in either singleplayer or multiplayer. If you did 40 parries in singleplayer, and then did 35 parries in multiplayer, the achievement would not unlock until you get all 75 in either single or multiplayer.
If you’re having trouble with any of the challenges, remember that you can do many of them in a local match with a second controller. You can also play with the dipswitches in the options and see if any of them make the achievements easier for you. Note that modifying dipswitches appears to disable tracking for some of the games challenges, but the only achievement this seems to affect is "Pocket Full Of Quarters."
Keep track of your progress by going to the challenges menu in either singleplayer or multiplayer. Remember that single and multi are tracked separately.
