News: “Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name” is a thrilling video game crafted by Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio and brought to you by Sega. This game, a spin-off from the acclaimed Like a Dragon series, delves into the adventures of protagonist Kazuma Kiryu. Available on multiple platforms, including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, the game made its debut on November 9, 2023.
Embark on a captivating quest titled “Please Model For Me!” within Like a Dragon Gaiden, where our protagonist Joryu is presented with the chance to ascend to fashion stardom. To initiate this quest, players must advance to Chapter 2 and gain access to The Castle’s Boutique. Navigate the map and keep an eye out for white exclamation points, directing you to a photographer located near the entrance of the Casino.
During this quest, the original model of the photographer unexpectedly backs out, leading Joryu to seize the opportunity to be the new face of fashion. Yet, there’s a twist— the photographer insists that Joryu dons specific items for the photoshoot: a Straw Hat, a T-Shirt, and Straw Sandals. Here’s the guide on acquiring these essential items:
To procure the Straw Hat required for the photoshoot, players can acquire it from the Boutique once they attain Gold Rank in the Coliseum. To unlock Gold Rank, elevate the Akame Network to level 10 and successfully secure Bronze and Silver ranks in both the Tournament and Timed matches. The Straw Hat is up for grabs at the price of ¥200,000.
Obtaining the T-Shirt is easy. Simply visit the Boutique and talk to the employee on the right side. Purchase any T-Shirt design of your choice for ¥100,000. The photographer doesn’t have specific requirements for the design, as long as it’s a T-Shirt.
Go to Akame’s Shop in the Hideout and have a conversation with her. She will provide you with Straw Sandals in exchange for 5,000 Network Points. It may take some time to accumulate enough points, as they are also used for purchasing armor and abilities.
Once you have acquired all three items, return to the Boutique and dress up Joryu in the designated outfit. Then, go back to the photographer near the Casino to complete the “Please Model For Me!” quest successfully. As a reward, you will receive Akame Network points and ¥75,000. Joryu will not only look stylish but also perform good deeds in Like a Dragon Gaiden.
In Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, players have the opportunity to embody Kazuma Kiryu and explore the Sotenbori district in Osaka. Additionally, during the first chapter, there is a twist where players can experience the Isezaki Ijincho district in Yokohama, a location familiar to fans of Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Lost Judgment.
The Castle serves as a central hub in the game, offering various activities between missions. Players can engage in mini-games such as karaoke, Pocket Circuit racing, cabaret club entertainment, and fighting arena battles. Furthermore, a new character named Akame introduces side missions to keep players engaged.
When it comes to combat, Kiryu can utilize two fighting styles – the classic Yakuza style known for its fierceness and brawling, and the Agent style, which focuses on high-tech gadgets and swift, precise moves.
For those in need of a break from the intense action, there are classic Master System games that Kiryu can play, including Alex Kidd in Miracle World and Sonic the Fighters. It’s like a game within a game! Additionally, players can unlock a special trial version of Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth after completing Gaiden’s main story. This trial version features two demos – one continuing the story of Gaiden and another allowing players to explore a fictionalized version of Honolulu, Hawaii, the main setting of Infinite Wealth.
Prepare for an exhilarating experience filled with exploration, intense combat, and a combination of classic and modern gaming elements in Like a Dragon Gaiden. It’s Kiryu’s world, and players are invited to immerse themselves in it!
