Introduction: 
Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 arrived in March 2015, and is the sequel to the original Kinect game back in 2011. It's a fun game to play, and much like its predecessor is great for having a laugh with your friends. The aim of the game is to slice fruit, however, there are other aspects to it like avoiding shurikens. It basically expands on the premise of the original game.

All achievements can be obtained offline, however, it will require at least one other person, and in the case of All for one and one for all! you may need four people. Initially, it was thought that you would need to play online for Party mode, but it is not.

None of the achievements are glitched or missable, so don't worry so much about them and just go for it. You can always track your progress with the Achievements app on your Xbox One. One thing to note with the game is that it is OVER sensitive and just the slightest movement from one of your hands can cause a slice on the screen. Be extra careful when playing!

Abbreviated Walkthrough: 
Your best bet when you start up the game is just to have a play around in all the game modes, and don't try to aim for achievements. Get yourself comfortable with swinging your arms around, and dodging shurikens. Chances are you will unlock a few achievements without even trying - most probably for unlocking the festival modes.

There isn't really much more to talk about in regards to a playthrough, as all game modes are fairly short and can be repeated as many times as you like.

Conclusion: 
Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 is a fairly easy game to complete, and doesn't necessarily require much skill - sadly there is too much luck involved in the full 1000. Just waving your arms around will pretty much do the trick. The achievements are sort of the same as the last game, with the addition of some extra modes.

Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 Achievement Guide

Show completed achievements
Show secret achievements

There are 30 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Hit 3 bombs and get a total score over 250 in Arcade

       

    A fairly simple achievement to get. From the main menu select Quickplay and go to ARCADE mode. When you start, try your best to hit the first three bombs which pop up from the bottom of the screen. Once you have these out of the way, you can go nuts for the score. 

    It shouldn't take too much to get 250 points. Hit a few combos and avoid any further bombs.

  • Slice 5,000 fruit.

       

    See "Juicinator."

  • Slice 6 different fruits in one combo

       

    This can be achieved in most game modes, but will require some form of luck. As long as you get a combo with AT LEAST six different fruits in, the achievement will pop.

    An example of this is banana-kiwi-passionfruit-strawberry-lemon-pineapple - even if you hit two of the same fruit, as long as there are six different ones, you'll be okay.

    The easiest way to get this requires a little bit of luck. If you play in ARCADE mode, and slice a Pink/Purple banana to make the fruit jumbo sized, it makes the fruit much easier to hit. Combined with the Red/Yellow banana, it makes this achievement a piece of cake.

  • Slice a Jumbo Starfruit

       

    This requires much more luck than skill. Firstly if you go to ARCADE mode and keep playing, hopefully you should slice the purple/pink banana powerup. This makes all the fruit into jumbo fruit. If you are lucky, a starfruit will appear. Slice one and the achievement will pop.

  • Zensei

     

    40

    Don't miss a single fruit during a Zen game

       

    This one may take a bit of practice to get, but shouldn't cause too much trouble. Select the Zen game mode, and when it starts, you are given 90 seconds to achieve the best score you can. The fruits usually come up in certain little groups, so you should be aiming to combo most fruit. Make sure you don't let a single fruit fall back below your screen.

    If you do fail at any point, don't retry and keep going, as it will contribute to "Juicinator" (unless you already have it).

  • Go back to zero strikes after receiving two

       

    This can only be done in CLASSIC mode. To get this achievement you will need to let two fruit drop below your screen BEFORE you get to 100 points. Once you get to 100 points, one of your strikes will be removed. Keep playing, then at 200 points your second strike will be removed. Be careful not to let any more fruit drop before the 200 mark, and make sure you don't hit the bombs.

  • Get all bonuses at least once in Arcade

       

    This will come naturally through the game. As you play through ARCADE mode, you will unlock bonuses. For example, hitting bombs three times, getting a six-chain combo or not hitting any bombs at all. There are around 30 possible bonuses to obtain, so several plays of ARCADE will be required.

  • Equip the Fiery shadow and the Fire blade at the same time

       

    This can be obtained by going to the SWAG section. You can purchase the items for starfruit, but chances are you won't have enough, as you unlock them as you progress anyway. By level 10, you can equip both.

  • Stay at least 5 consecutive seconds in a spotlight in Mari's Strawberry Stealth

       

    Easy achievement to get. In Festival mode, start a game on Mari's Strawberry Stealth. The aim of the game is to avoid the spotlight and slice as much fruit as possible. You need to do the opposite. When you see the spotlight appear (the pink circle moving on the screen), try to get as much of your shadow in there and keep it in there. Keep slicing as much fruit as possible and the achievement will unlock.

  • Slice 10 fruits inside spotlights without losing points in a game of Mari's Strawberry Stealth

       

    This is tricky, but it can be done over time. All you need to do is avoid the spotlight in a game of Mari's Strawberry Stealth and every time a fruit is in the spotlight, quickly slice it. 

    The quicker you are the less chance you have of losing points. If you slice the fruit, but it says -1, then that fruit didn't count.

  • Hit every target in a game of Han's Apple Range

       

    This can be very frustrating, but be patient with it. The aim of the game is to hit the targets which appear, but the catch is that you can only 'hit' the target if you hit a fruit first. When a fruit passes over the target - throw a dagger. The targets will stay on screen for 8 - 10 seconds each.

    The best way I found to do this was to continuously throw your arms at the screen, but stop when bombs appear.

    It is down to luck really if fruit will fly in front of the target.

  • Throw 15 daggers in under 5 seconds in Han's Apple Range

       

    In Festival mode, start up Han's Apple Range. As soon as it starts, fling your arms as quickly and rapidly as you can at the screen. You'll start throwing daggers. You'll need an average of three per second to get the achievement. Keep throwing them all through the game and ignore the fruit. It should pop fairly quickly.

  • Let 20 seeds fall back to back in Nobu's Bamboo Strike

       

    Firstly, you need to be at Ninja Belt level three to unlock Nobu's Bamboo Strike. The aim of the game is to slice all the seeds you see. If they fall, they create bamboo sticks. The best way to obtain this is to start the game and stand still. After four seeds have fallen and the screen is filled with bamboo, slice it all away quickly, and then stand still. Wait for another four seeds, and so the same. Repeat until the achievement pops.

  • Slice 60 seeds in a single game of Nobu's Bamboo Strike

       

    You'll need to be at Ninja Belt level three to unlock Nobu's Bamboo Strike. As soon as you stars the game, move your arms from side to side as quickly as possible. If you see a bomb, immediately stop! On average, I've counted 65 - 70 seeds per game with no bomb hits, so if you do hit a bomb, make sure it's only one.

  • Slice all propellers in a single game of Katsuro's Ninja Dodge

    (2)   

    This one can be a little tricky and requires some quick precision. If you go to the Festivals from the main menu, and then slice Katsuro's Ninja Dodge, the aim of the game is to score as much as you can without being struck by the shurikens. Don't worry too much about avoiding them, just wait for the fruit on propellers. Every now and again, a line of about six of them will fly across the screen one after the other. They are a little faster than normal fruit, but try to slice all of them in one foul swoop. If you miss one, quickly slice to get it.

    If you managed to slice every single fruit on a propeller, the achievement will pop when the time is up.

  • Get hit by all shurikens in a single Katsuro's Ninja Dodge

       

    This achievement is a little harder than it sounds. The aim of the game is to score as much as you can without being struck by the shurikens - we need to do the exact opposite.

    Forget about the fruit! When a shuriken is about to be thrown, a red target will appear on screen and will get a little smaller over a few seconds. At its smallest, a shuriken will be thrown. At this point, make sure your shadow is in the way of the skuriken target. Later on in the game there will be two thrown at once - make sure you are in the way. Try to get your body in the way and not just your arms, as it has a tendency to miss your arms.

  • Unlock all four Festival modes

       

    This will unlock through natural progression. By belt level four, it will have unlocked all of the festival games.

    The festival game modes are:

    • Mari's Strawberry Stealth
    • Han's Apple Range
    • Nobu's Bamboo Strike
    • Katsuro's Ninja Dodge


    By default Katsuro's Ninja Dodge and Han's Apple Range are available to play without unlocking.

  • Reach Ninja belt level 10

       

    See "Fruit Ninja."

  • Reach Ninja belt level 20

       

    See "Fruit Ninja."

  • Reach Ninja belt level 30

       

    To gain belt levels you have to complete challenges. Each time you play, you will see on the right what challenges are active. They have triangles as logos. They can be things like slice 25 strawberries or get a score of 250. Each tome you complete a challenge, you gain a logo on your belt. Each level between one and 10 has three challenges. For levels 11 - 20 you need to complete four challenges per level. For levels 21 - 30 you need to complete five challenges per level.

    To get to level 30 you need to complete a total of 120 challenges:

    • 30 to get from level 1 to level 10.
    • 40 to get from level 11 to level 20.
    • 50 to get from level 21 to level 30.
  • Slice 10,000 fruits

       

    This achievement will easily come before you have all the other achievements. When you consider that in a standard ARCADE mode game, you're likely to slice a few hundred fruit. As a rough estimate, if you played 55 - 60 games of ARCADE mode, you'll get the achievement.

  • Earn a cumulative score of over 650 with your friends in a single Party game

      

    The achievement description is a little misleading, as the word cumulative means a running total, however this achievement required a combined score of more than 650. 

    The best way to get this is with four players. The combined score MUST be 651 or more - scoring 650 will not unlock the achievement. If you have four players, you need an average of 163 points each points each. If you have three players, you'll need to score an average of 217 each. If you only have two players, then this achievement may be rather difficult as each player would need to earn on average 326 points each.

  • Get 3 powerups at once in ARCADE.

       

    There are four possible powerups to get:

    • Yellow/Red Banana - Fruit Frenzy - Spawns lots and lots of bananas.
    • Blue/White Banana - Freeze - Slows down the spawn rate of fruit and freezes the timer.
    • Blue/Yellow Banana - Double Points - Multiplies your score by 2 for a few seconds.
    • Pink/Purple Banana - Jumbo Fruits - Increases the size of all fruits by 150% for a few seconds.


    As long as you slice three different powerups within a few seconds of each other it will unlock. It is mainly down to luck.

  • Do all the Ninja Poses in Party

    (2)  

    Start a multiplayer game in party. When playing, every now and then a large coin will slowly fall down the screen. Make sure somebody hits it and it will give you a random challenge. When it asks you to strike a pose, do as many as you can. 

    You won't be able to get them all in one go as there are around 20 different poses. Keep at it and you will eventually unlock them all.

  • Play 5 consecutive games in Party

      

    Simple enough to get, just start a multiplayer match either on party or battle. As long as you know hit replay and not quit the games at any point it will unlock.

  • Perform a 4-fruit combo with Mini-Fruit

      

    This can only be obtained in a multiplayer battle match. You will need another person to co-operate with for this. Start up the battle and play as usual until a dark banana appears. If you strike it, your opponent will have a negative effect occur. It can be fast-forward mode, or Mini-Fruit mode. To obtain this achievement, get the other person to always slice the Dark Banana. Once they have done this, and the negative effect on you is Mini-Fruit, simply wait until you can slice four fruit at once, and go for it.

  • Have a friend jump in a Quickplay or Festival game

      

    Easy enough to get - simply start a game on your own and if you have another person there with you, have them wave at Kinect to join. If not, invite a friend online.

  • Reach 50 slices on the Golden Pomegranate

      

    I got this on multiplayer battle. When it pops up at the end, throw your arms as fast as you can to reach 50. It may appear in other game modes too.

  • Perform 4 combos within a single Freeze powerup

       

    The Freeze power up is the frozen blue banana which appears on the screen. The best way to achieve this one is to slice the frozen banana, wait for a few seconds, then make four quick slices at the fruit on screen. It may take a few tries to get it right, but you usually get a few frozen banana powerups per game anyway.

  • Slice the (not so secret anymore) secret fruit

    (1)   

    The secret fruit is the same as the first game - The Dragon Fruit. It spawns in CLASSIC mode, but it is fairly rare. It will most likely shoot across the screen quickly, but it shouldn't go so quickly that you miss it, unless you are too pre-occupied with your score or something.
    You'll know when it appears, as you'll hear the jingle. The achievement image is what the fruit will look like:
