Virtua Striker is an arcade soccer game that was released by Sega from way back in the 1990s. I remember spending many credits at the arcade, while skipping school, honing my skills at this game for months, and years to come on its sequel. The Xbox Live Arcade version of this game is released on 13rd February, 2013, for 800 MSP. It has 12 achievements for a total of 400, and it's a relatively easy-to-complete game. 

The majority of the achievements in this game requires you to play in arcade mode. Difficulty doesn't affect achievements, so if you're rushing this, play through arcade mode on the "easy" setting. You'd need to play through arcade at least twice, and also some random matches to mop up other achievements. These will be explained further in
the guide. 

As the achievements are in Japanese, I'll include a translation of the titles and descriptions in the guide. 

Achievements you can get when playing through arcade mode (twice):
- "????????" (Win Arcade Mode)
- "???" (1st Victory)
- "5???" (5 Victories)
- "10???" (10 Victories)
- "????" (1st Goal)
Provided you score lots of goals in the process of two playthroughs, you should also unlock:
- "5????" (5 Total Goals)
- "10????" (10 Total Goals)
On both playthroughs, you'd need to ensure that the following settings are entered in each of the two playthroughs:
Playthrough #1:
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1:30
Extra-Time: Off
PK: On (you need to choose the number of shots to be taken)
Playthrough #2:
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1:30
Extra-Time: Time Free
PK: Off (this turns off automatically if you choose "time free" extra-time)
Fulfilling conditions in one match with these settings will unlock the following:
- "PK?" (Participate in a penalty-shootout)
- "V???" (Score a V Goal)
Enter cheats at the appropriate time to unlock:
- "???" (Big Head Mode)
- "FC SEGA" (Play as FC Sega)
Also, read through the How to Play section in the Options menu to unlock this:
- "?????" (Read the tutorial till the end)
And there you go, an easy 400 in the bag. This game is a blast in the past for me, and I believe for many gamers. It's also easy and can be completed in about 30-60 minutes if you plan it right. Unfortunately, it's only available on the Japanese marketplace at this time of writing. So if you want to play it, you'd need a Japanese Xbox Live account, and Japanese Microsoft Points to purchase it.

FC Sega is a hidden team that you'll play against if you beat arcade mode without using a single continue. It's basically a team made up of the developers of the game. To use this team, you'd need to do the following in the team selection menu:
  • Select FRANCE, press 
  • Select COLUMBIA, press 
  • Select SPAIN, press 
  • Select ENGLAND, press 
  • Select GERMANY, press 
  • Select ARGENTINA, press 
If done correctly, FC Sega will appear at the bottom of the screen. Select it, and the achievement will pop moments into the match.
You'd need to be quick when selecting the teams, because you're given only 15 seconds to do so.
ARCADE、OFFLINE VERSUSでデカ頭モードをプレイ(1Pのみ)   (2) 


This is for playing with big heads in either arcade or offline versus mode. 
To unlock big heads, input the following code when the announcer is announcing the names of the teams:
- , , ,
You must quickly input the above code before the game commences. There's only a few seconds to do so. If done correctly, the players' heads will miraculously turn big, and the achievement will unlock.
I'd suggest to use  to input the code. I tried using the d-pad and it didn't work for me.


HELP & OPTIONSの遊び方を最後まで閲覧(1Pのみ)   (2) 


This is for viewing the "how to play" section in Help & Options. 
To do so, select Help & Options from the main menu. Choose the top most option there, and keep scrolling right. Scroll till the last page, and the achievement will unlock. 
ARCADEでトーナメントを優勝(1Pのみ)   (1) 


This is awarded for winning arcade mode.
To make things easy, choose the "easy" setting and you should be able to win it quite comfortably.
 - Direction/ Movement
 - Short Pass/ Tackle
 - Long Pass/ Headed Clearance
 - Shoot
The easiest way to score on easy difficulty is to pass the ball to either flank, cut in and tap-shoot. Tapping  in a one-on-one situation while inside the penalty area almost definitely guarantees a goal. 
ARCADEのCOM戦でVゴールを決めて勝利(1Pのみ)   (2) 


This is for scoring a V goal, i.e., a golden goal. This means a vital goal scored in added time when the game is drawn.
To get this easier, set up arcade mode as follow:
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1:30
Extra-Time: Time Free
PK: Off (this turns off automatically if you choose "time free" extra-time)
Now, simply pass the ball around without scoring. First, you'll see "Loss Time" at the top of the screen when time is up. Continue passing until the words "V Goal!" appear at the top. Go on and score a goal now, and the achievement will unlock.
ARCADEのCOM戦でPK戦をプレイ(ファール後のPKは除く・1Pのみ)   (2) 


This is for participating in a penalty-shootout. 
To do so, set up arcade mode as follow:
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1:30
Extra-Time: Off
PK: On (you need to choose the number of shots to be taken)
Pass the ball around until "Loss Time", and then let the game end in a draw. You'll automatically enter penalty-shootout. The achievement unlocks upon entering the shootout. You do not need to win.
ARCADEのCOM戦で累計10試合勝利(1Pのみ)   (1) 


This is for winning 10 cumulative games in arcade mode. 
The structure of arcade mode is as follow:
- first round
- quarter-final
- semi-final
- final
- FC Sega (if you complete the first four games without using a single continue)
As such, if you don't select FC Sega as your team, and manage to win arcade mode twice without using continue, this achievement would unlock naturally.
ARCADEのCOM戦で累計5試合勝利(1Pのみ)   (1) 


This is for winning 5 cumulative games in arcade mode. 
See "10???" for more details.
ARCADEのCOM戦で初勝利(1Pのみ)   (1) 

This is for winning your first game in arcade mode. 

See "10????" for more details.

ARCADEのCOM戦で累計10ゴール(1Pのみ)   (1) 


This is for scoring 10 cumulative goals in arcade mode.
See "????????" for tips on scoring goals. On easy mode, this should come rather easily. I ended my first arcade run with 15 goals, and that was including a game in which I deliberately drew 0-0 to play the penalty-shootout.
