Like a Dragon: Ishin! Chapter 10-14 Substories Guide

The last of Ishin!'s substories are also the hardest. This guide will tell you everything you need to know about the ones you'll find in Chapter 10-14.

It takes a lot of time to knock out all 72 of the substories in Like a Dragon: Ishin!, especially if you're not sure where they are or how to complete them. In this guide we're going to go over the substories introduced between Chapters 10 through 14, and luckily these are the fewest of the lot.

There are only 4 Substories spread throughout Chapters 10-14, but they're a little more involved than normal. This guide will tell you about every Substory in Ishin!'s later chapters, how to complete them, and the rewards you'll get from each one.

We have guides covering every substory in Like a Dragon: Ishin!, take a look if you need more help getting through the game's massive list of substories:

Like a Dragon: Ishin! Chapter 10 Through 14 Substory Guide

32. Brawler Enlightened

Available in: Chapter 10

Location: Mukurogai First Floor, west of Paradise, same as in Substory 30 and 31

How to complete: Head back to the brawler for the brawl to settle it all. He’s tougher, but plenty doable by this point. Face him in combat for the last time.

Reward: Berserker Charm, 400 Virtue, the brawler shows up at HQ as an Epic Trooper Card

38. Precious Packages

Available in: Chapter 13, night, after completing Substory 71

Location: Kuramachi Fushimi, the northwest side of the street just north of Teradaya

How to complete: Ryoma’s sandal comes undone, and while he’s stopped to fix it, two men carrying packages crash into him (and each other). The packages are switched by accident, and you’ll have to go to Mukurogai to set things right. Head to the southernmost part of the riverbank located to the far east of Mukurogai’s first floor (the same place you found Satow in Substory 71). You’ll see the man who ran into you earlier chatting with another man, and a fight will break out. Once the fight’s over, select “No, I have to return this.” Return the package to the place this all started to finish this Substory.

Reward: Great Serpent Skin, 300 Virtue

71. Diplomacy in Darkness

Available in: Chapter 13, night, after finding at least 23 (88.42%) of the 26 memoirs

Location: izakaya north of Umai Udon

How to complete: Satow has been kidnapped and taken to Mukurogai. To get him back, head to the southernmost part of the riverbank located to the far east of Mukurogai’s first floor. You’ll see Satow surrounded by several samurai. Take them down.

Reward: 350 Virtue

72. A Lasting Thirst for Peace

Available in: Chapter 14 (finale), after having collected 25 of 26 (96.154% memoirs) and completed substory 71

Location: Bridge near Umai Udon in Fushimi

How to complete: Satow is leaving Japan soon, but wants to see one last thing in Gion before he leaves. Accompany him, but be ready for a fairly tough fight. Once everything’s settled, head back to the izakaya near Umai Udon to say goodbye.

Reward: Kiwami Hammer, A Letter from the Right Honorable E. Satow, 400 Virtue

Congratulations! If  you’ve been following our guides, you've finished every Substory in Like a Dragon: Ishin! Return to Ryoma’s villa in Another Life and you’ll get a letter from Bakumatsu Bob telling you to come to Teradaya for a reward. Reading the letter grants you 1,000 Virtue. Meet Bakumatsu Bon in Teradaya to receive Ame-no-Murakumo, an epic sword that’s one of the best in the game.

You may have completed all of the substories in Like a Dragon: Ishin!, but there’s still loads left to do. Check out our guides hub for more guides!
