Achievements of "Julius" don't work on the version (EUR), but works on version (USA). At least for me.

Soul collection achievements do not work on RetroArch on RPI3...bummer looks like Ill have to do it all over again on my PC!

I got Legion's soul in New Game+ and still didn't get the achievement. Do I have to get all red souls in the first run or do I have to reobtain all the red souls in the + game?

AuraOfTheDawn
you have to reobtain the ones you lost, but I don't recall you losing a red soul. It happens with undine/skula though. Also, make sure you're on a US release. EU has issues last I heard.

There are no lost red souls, but I got it, I just had to obtain one of every red soul in a second playthrough.

After reading these recent comments I decided to try the soul collections achievements on RetroArch again. They work just fine. I just needed to collect all souls in one game. I had used new game + in my first attempt.

So All Achievements can be obtained using RPI3 and RetroArch!

RetroArch disconnected from my WiFi when I got all the red souls and I freaked out thank god I got it after loading my save. So yeah some achievements will still be rewarded if you load your game after a WiFi or internet disconnection

Also the Rom with GBAtemp seemed to be the best. Had issues with other roms.

I am interested in making a revision for this game at some point. You would like to make one for it by yourself? Contact me before please!

IMO you could pump up the Kicker Skeleton achiev to 10 points, while toning down the Manticore to 5, since that soul could be accidentaly skipped by the player and it's not a guaranteeed drop.

I will try to make these achievements not to unlock just when you open a save file as a priority, rebalance the points, and maybe add some skill-based challenges.

I just hope those already earned won't be reset.
29 Jul 16:45

They won't be

Yeah, that was awkward when I opened a new save in A Link to the Past about two years ago...

Just finished the set, a couple of new achievements that I think make sense would be 100% map completion, beating boss rush with Julius in a certain amount of time (I think 4-5 minutes would be fair but challenging)...
18 Aug 01:20

... and maybe some for beating the bosses without taking damage(boss rush or story mode)

Do you seriously not get the souls achievements if you finish your collection in NG+ or is my rom bugged? All the other achievements popped so I'm leaning toward the former but if so that freakin sucks. I don't want to start ALL OVER for that
