Completely stuck on this one...

So I've had Margie change screens "for me" on the first floor of the cathedral, but I assume that's only part of the cheevo.. since I still had to walk all the way over to her first. Any tips?

After watching an inordinate amount of speed runs, I'm not sure this is possible? I did see a full stair skip on the Japanese version, but even that required d-pad input...

You're not really on the right track with Margie, the achievement won't work during cutscenes so you're going to have to find a way to do it with gameplay alone.

I mean this could apply many places. I could be in the balloon mini game and just not press anything and the screen would change without moving the dpad. What even is this.

I aiming to try this game, but not sure what this is about, someone explain ?

i've only just started this set so i probably haven't reached this yet, but i've been thinking in preparation. perhaps it has something to do with the verbs at fei's disposal, and how that interacts with others.

Stuck on this currently, watched a bunch of speed runs and heard of a exploit in the JPN version but confused as to how to unlock this, assume it's in the Cathedral from the achievement icon? Any tips?

tip: keep an eye out for passersby who walk around nissan exits (forget the cathedral, focus on the city itself)

There is a guy walking around Nisan in the town that crosses the green bridge. Just jump on his head and let him carry you to the exit.
