This achievement triggers when you "touch" Blablanadon, causing your "A" icon to switch to "Speak". So if you get to and touch Blablanadon with exactly 2:20:00, you will still win even if you press A "too late". That's what No need to Press A means.

yeah, I'm a little inclined to agree that 2:20:00 is way too strict, considering the WR speed runner just barely beat that time himself. The time should (imo) have a little more leeway for the following reasons;

1. This isn't a speed running website, 2. You don't get any rewards in-game for a time of that nature, 3. If you don't do it, you have to do the two final boss fights over again and again until you beat it.

Hm. I guess I could adjust it, but it was made more to make the escape sequence an actual challenge when it was otherwise a joke. I'll look into making it 2:25 then. I'm not a speedrunner myself, but I managed to get it, so I thought it was fine..
3 Dec 23:29 2016
MGNS8M
OH wait, no no, I'm backwards today, 2:25 would be worse, wouldn't it ... ehh... 2:15:00 then? ^^;

Hard to say. I haven't gotten there yet, but like I established, you have a 40 second challenge that takes 2 boss fights to get to (10-20 minutes????), which makes any following attempts time consuming if you aren't perfect the first time.

SlimKirby
If there was a save point right before the escape sequence, 40 secs would be fine, but there is way much to redo in between to be that strict with the timing. Honestly, I'd say 2:10 or 2:00 remaining would be more fair.

But again, I'm not there yet, so I can't be 100% for sure. But the fact that the WR Speed Runner just barely escaped with 2:20.....that fact alone kind of worries me about what's being "tested" here....
4 Dec 20:05 2016
MGNS8M
Yeah, that's true. Mostly, I wanted this to be a challenge someone might want to come back to and beat the boss again for if they didn't get it first time(and maybe then they'd be more powerful and the boss would be more trivial). 2:10:00 then...
5 Dec 0:22 2016
SlimKirby
yeah, I think 2:10 is a good call. It doesn't seem that bad of an escape sequence, but I got screwed by it just now due to not realizing you had to land the barrel from above the button and that you can't go up the bottom stairs with it. X_X

So yeah, have to battle Bowletta again....(URGGGHH), but at least the achievement is fair enough to grab it for sure on 2nd attempt.....

Ah, sorry about that, but at least it worked out in the end! Hopefully some of the ones who missed this one can get it again then.
