FYI you should use the (U) version of the rom for all achievements to work properly. I'm considering making a set sometime for Akumajo Dracula Densetsu since, say, Mario 2 and Mario Advance have separate sets.

"n the name of my Mother... (2) (12)Deliver the final blow to Dracula as his son."------How can I earn?
5 Feb 19:39 2017
Heart of fire no working
22 Oct 20:54 2017
Yeah, as mentioned above, 'Heart of Fire' seems to be bugged, as I was not awarded it when I beat all three bosses at the end, and I do not want to do that again.
19 Jan 4:46 2018
It'd be great to see this list get ported over to the Japanese version of the game. :D
31 May 19:25 2018
That's a great game and really hard too! I got the Brando references. It was really amazing and funny mastering this set. Good job popoki!
23 Jul 15:29 2018
Is Iron Blue Intention supposed to be unlocked when Sypha gets the ice spell?
27 Oct 16:06 2018
Slowly working on getting these done. The Sypha and Grant ones will likely be hardest since I typically pick Alucard
18 Nov 3:10 2018
