Every time Kiryu thinks he’s out, yakuza life pulls him back in. This is true once again Like Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name, Where we follow Kiryu after his final adventure, but before Ichiban takes over like a dragon and upcoming Infinite wealth. Unlike most games in the series, you won’t be racing around the iconic Kamurocho, but instead mostly around Sotenbori, Isezaki Ijincho, and the Castle. What remains the same are the countless side stories and optional tasks that, for whatever reason, always seem to present themselves to the calm and pensive Kiryu. This time one of them is “Got Catch Some Balls!” A request given through the new Akame Network where you need to locate seven golden balls hidden around the maps. These are well-hidden little treasures in very dense places, so here are the locations of all seven. Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name.

Kiryu asks Shen if he needs balls.

The first six of the seven balls can be obtained as soon as you reach the spot where they are. The seventh and final ball is tied to the Stroll N’ Patrol request which appears as a reward later in the game.

Sotenbori Gold Ball Location

No. 1: At the southwestern end of W. Shofukucho Street, enter Kiss Shot Billiards & Bar. This ball is one of the rewards you can get by exchanging 777 points, so play a few rounds to save up.

No. 2: On E. Shofukucho Street, go to Ebisu Pawnshop and browse their wares. This gold ball is on sale for 77,777 yen.

Number 3: Make sure it’s daytime and visit Iwao Bridge. Look at the water and wait for the tourist boat to pass below (it goes back and forth). You’ll see a man standing on a bow, and once he gets close enough, a button will appear prompting you to catch the ball.

Number 4: On the southwestern part of the map, enter the Akame Shop. The first thing you need to do is “I’m aiming to have a little bit of everything!” Need to buy! Option to spend 150,000 yen to unlock more items for the first point. Once you’ve saved and invested, you can get this ball for 777 points.

Number 5: This is the last ball you will get. To trigger the mission you need, you must first access Chapter 4 and find the “Solve the Mysterious Note” mission on the north side of the river. This mission will take you to Shofukucho Street near the hotel. Check for a grab prompt in front of the turtle statues above the shop entrances to get the final ball.

Castle Gold Ball Location

Number 6: Once you reach Silver Rank in the Fighter’s Lounge, you can go down the stairs and under the giant statue. Assume that this ball is in a physically suitable location.

Number 7: Next to the casino entrance is a row of moving platforms with people riding on them. Stand on the sidelines until you see the guy wearing the mask and be ready to hit the grab command to get the ball.
