No Spoilers!

The fight to earn this achievement occurs during normal story progression. It is part of the end game and is the third boss fight after the last opportunity to make a save. Nier has a second encounter with the pair of bosses he met at the beginning of the end game sequence. It they are defeated within three and a half minutes, the achievement will unlock.

The same tactics employed during the previous encounter will work here as well. Melee attacks and/or Dark Hand magic attacks are effective. After a while a cut scene ensues. When combat resumes, Nier will confront the remaining boss of the pair. If Nier concludes the battle within three and a half minutes, the achievement will unlock.

As with similar timed fights, make sure you skip the cut scenes. Accordingly, you might want to fight the boss pair twice--once viewing the cut scenes and the second skipping them. Since reverting to the previous save involves replaying a long sequence with the tow additional boss fights between this one, it might be best to view the cut scenes while working towards the A ending and skipping them while working towards the B ending.

This fight recurs for each walkthrough--working towards the A, B, C, and D endings. Nier will be progressively stronger during each walkthrough until he reaches max strength. So, depending on how fast you have been leveling up--a personal choice--you may want to defer getting this achievement for a later playthrough when Nier is at a level where he can more quickly defeat this pair. In other words, there will be four opportunities to get this achievement through normal game play without reverting to a previous save file.
