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.

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)...

... 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

I'm currently doing a NG+ in an attempt to complete my soul collection; I hope that I can earn the achievements this way...To be honest, it's so easy to miss Legion's soul (I didn't want to spoil myself with the wiki and so I didn't know that...

Good luck! Just remember, you have to get one of each again, even if you have gotten it before, so keep a checklist.
29 Nov 18:11 2017
Yngvi
...you have to destroy all of its parts first or you won't get the soul) that imo, asking us to get all of the souls in a single playthrough is pretty frustrating :/
29 Nov 18:12 2017
Yngvi
Oh, I didn't know that, thanks for the info !
29 Nov 18:13 2017
Olafur
anytime! Though of course it only applies to the soul color youre missing, so if you're only missing the red ones, dont worry about blue and yellow ones.

Enjoying this set so far, but, to be honest, I'm kinda disapointed some important things seem to be missing, like 100% map completion and the COMPLETE lack of boss rush achievements (even one would be sufficient).
10 Jan 8:47 2018
Shieru
On the other hand, Level 50 being the last level achievements seems more than reasonable, though 2 level achievements would have been sufficient, in my opinion
