Substory 56 - Finders Weepers

Jarrod Garripoli

Substories are the wackier stories in the Like A Dragon series, to offshoot the more serious tone of the main story. You will first unlock the ability to do Substories in Chapter 2, although they aren’t shown on your map, so you will need to fully explore each map to find them. This page will give a walkthrough of the Finders Weepers Substory, found in Gion.

If you look closely, you should see something on the ground and upon getting close enough, you will be able to interact with it. Go ahead and do that to start the Substory.
