Hidden Areas You Probably Missed In Yakuza: Like A Dragon

Like previous Yakuza games, Like a Dragon has a small map, yet it is bursting with content. While the premise and formula are similar to its predecessors, Like a Dragon is a game-changer in many ways. Ichiban Kasuga takes the place of long-serving series protagonist Kizuma Kiryu and there's a new city, mostly based around the Yokohama district of Isezaki Ijincho. Unlike previous entries, this game also features turn-based combat. 

Similar to past games, Yakuza: Like a Dragon can go on for hours and hours if you want it to. It all comes down to how much of a completionist you are, and how deeply you intend to search the map. Finding all of the game's many secrets can take upwards of 80 hours, a daunting amount of time for any gamer. However, if you're looking to take a more completionist route with Yakuza: Like a Dragon, here are a few areas you might have missed.

Secret casino and gambling hall

There are so many mini-games in Yakuza: Like a Dragon that it can be hard to know where to go. You could go to the arcade, or karaoke, or the batting cages. But what if you're looking specifically to gamble? Well, there are two secret places to gamble in Like a Dragon, according to TheSixthAxis' mini-game guide. The first is a casino in a public toilet. In Chinatown, head to the public toilets and speak to the NPC outside. Depending on Ichiban's Style level, the NPC will tell you that there's a casino behind one of the stalls. Head into the stall in the back and search the wall to find the way in. The casino includes mini-games such as Poker and Blackjack.

Along with the secret casino, there's a secret gambling hall that features traditional Japanese games such as Oichi-Kabu, which is similar to Baccarat. To find the gambling hall, go near Kinka Bridge. There will be two NPCs who won't let Ichiban pass unless his Confidence is a level 4 or higher. When you pass them, they'll talk about a gambling hall that can be found down a ladder and down a path a short way.

Secret shops: Fumie, Black Market Merchant, and Mangekyo

There are three secret shops you can find in Yakuza: Like a Dragon. According to ProGameGuides, not only are the shops hard to find, but the entrances are also behind barriers. To break the barriers, you have to wait until Chapter 5 when you visit Hello Work and are then able to change characters' jobs. Change Ichiban's job to Foreman and you can then demolish barriers.

To find Fumie, head to the Commercial District and look for red and blue signs above doors. Find the door barred with wooden planks and caution tape. Once you bust through, you'll find a shopkeeper waiting to sell you some excellent merchandise: things that boost XP from certain jobs, and rare Golden Keys.

Black Market Merchant is located in the Isezaki Road district near Restaurant Road and Ijin Street. Head up a narrow staircase, and then look for a small building attached to a larger building with the same boarded up door.

Mangekyo is located in the Bar District. You'll want to look for a staircase heading up to a row of buildings northwest from Survive Bar. The boarded up shop will be at the northernmost point of the row of buildings.

The Final Millennium Tower

The Millennium Tower is very difficult to get to, because it is only available as a post-game dungeon. You first have to complete the main story of Yakuza: Like a Dragon before you can get to it. Considering speed players may get through it in about 30 hours, it might not be too hard, but for completionists, this is one that you have to really work for.

The Final Millennium Tower can be found by going into the same Millennium Tower from Chapter 15. There, you'll fight some of the toughest enemies in the game. They are phantoms of enemies you've met before throughout the game, with the same weaknesses and attacks, but at higher levels. Since the bosses are leveled so high, Samurai-Gamers recommends being at least level 75 before attempting the Final Millennium Tower. There are also no save points, and being defeated will result in a Game Over and a trip back to the main menu.
