Not a detailed guide but just some useful information that helped me achieve this.

First and foremost quickly dash boarding when you die did not work for me. I don't know if I was too slow or what. Apparently the devs coded it that when you do a hard exit of the game it counts as a death. I read this on the forums for the PC version of the game.

You can however quit to the game menu if you see your going to die. This is what makes this achievement all the more manageable. Some fights can deal you a lot of damage fairly quickly so you must pay close attention to your health bar when things get hairy and learn which attacks take off two hit points.

Complete NG+ first. This is great training for your no death run considering that most attacks can one shot you.

The Shotgun. This weapon is beast against bosses. So I recommend going east first to nab this badboy after the frog boss. It also takes down some of the tougher enemies in one shot.

I've included a video below that shows a glitchless speed run. Its a great tool to see the quickest path of all four areas. I pretty much followed his route but I safely explored areas around to collect as much cash as possible. If an optional area had too many enemies or obstacles I simply backed out.

I purchased the following abilities in this order: Extra ammo for shotgun - bullet reflection using sword - chain dashing - charged sword attack

Hope this info proves useful and enjoy.. the game is great.

Thank you to GIRakaCHEEZER for providing the video.
