Yakuza 6 Substories Guide: All Locations and Walkthroughs

April 17, 2018Written by Tyler Treese

yakuza 6 substories guide

One of the great things about the Yakuza series is how much content is in each entry, and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life is no different. In addition to the great story, there’s also 51 optional missions to undertake. These feature some fan favorite characters from past games, a few new faces, and some of the funniest moments.

Yakuza 6 substories aren’t always easy to find, though. They unlock throughout the game, and can be difficult to locate if you don’t know what you’re doing. Thankfully, I’ve played through the entire game and documented where to find all 51 of the game’s substories.

You can find the first batch of Kamurocho substories below or go to page two to see the final stretch of optional missions.
