Like a Dragon: Ishin will have some DLC available to purchase, with some of them available to people who purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game. For those that have played other games, then you likely realize how to redeem the Downloadable Content for this game. That will come in the form of Bob Utsunomiya, who will handle all of the DLC for Ishin.
Where to Find Bob Utsunomiya in Like a Dragon: Ishin
Before you can even think about redeeming DLC in this game, you will need to progress the main story until you reach Chapter 2. Once you’ve done that, you will have access to the Teradaya inn in Fushimi. Go there and on the bottom floor, straight across from the entrance, you can see the narrow kitchen. Head into the kitchen and in the corner will be Bakumatsu Bob, the NPC you’re looking for, so speak with him if you wish to redeem any DLC.
At this moment, the DLC available to you is part of the Digital Deluxe version, which may or may not be sold separately. There are also some other pieces of DLC, although it’s not known if they are free or not. It’s also unclear just how much DLC will be released for this game, as the previous games in the series haven’t had a whole lot of it.
