Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name Cheats

 

Look Up!

While every Yakuza game manages to wedge collectibles into an impressive number of nooks and crannies, Like A Dragon Gaiden is different from other games in the series in that it doesn’t just hide items on the ground, it also places them up high and out of reach. With the introduction of the Spider Gadget, nothing is out of reach anymore.

Make sure you are always examining what is above you. There are items in trees, resting on signs, or even hanging off the thongs of men riding boats. You’ll be grabbing distant items using your Spider Gadget, so make sure you aren’t navel-gazing. Some of the most valuable items in the game are hidden above Joryu’s head.

When you are on Sotenbori St. you’ll see that a bunch of businesses have pretty ornate signs. There are items all over these signs.

 

 

Combat Tips

 

Sell Your (House) Wares And Profit

If there is one thing you can be certain of, it is that you are going to be filling your pockets full of plates. And while there is a certain whimsy to having thirty plates lining your trousers, there is a better use for them: you can sell them and make bank! Once you have collected an impressive assortment of dishware, head to a pawn shop, and unload your wares. This will be a primary source of money for you in the early parts of the game.

For your convenience, we’ve included the value of each plate below.

Plate Type Value
Iron Plate 100 yen
Bronze Plate 1,000 yen
Silver Plate 10,000 yen
Gold Plate 100,000 yen
Platinum Plate 200,000 yen

You can also sell your unwanted equipment, and other bits and bobs you encounter. While you will eventually get four slots for equipment, by the time you do so you will be in a position where you will want to equip high-end stuff. So, anything worse than what you already have equipped is probably worth selling.

Briefcases Respawn

During your adventure in Sotenbori, you are going to stumble upon a ton of briefcases. Unlike the collectibles you acquire using the Spider Gadget, you can never truly clear the streets of all the stray briefcases. Try as you might, there will always be another plate for you to collect.

So, whenever you venture into a previously explored area, keep an eye out for those briefcases! Especially in the early game, when a big part of your income will be selling plates.

Typically, you will find plates and energy drinks in those stray briefcases. However, later in the game, you will also start to find Sake Bowls that will help enhance your relationship with Colosseum fighters.

Try To Stock Up On Everything

Once you have unlocked the Akame Network, you will also unlock Stroll N’ Patrol missions. These will have you doing a bunch of odds and ends around the city. However, one type of mission will have you bring someone a specific item. This will often ping-pong you around the map. So, the better approach is to just buy at least two or three of every consumable item.

If you do this, then when you encounter the guy who is craving sushi, you will be able to take a few rolls out of your pocket and be on your way. This will save you a large amount of time and make your life easier.

This piece of advice isn’t specific to food. You’ll find people who want earrings, watches, and other stuff as well. If you have the money on hand, just buy everything.
