The Castle is prominently featured as one of the primary locations in Like a Dragon Gaiden. This massive pleasureboat epitomizes indulgence and celebrates the darker side of luxury, drawing in well-connected patrons seeking to immerse themselves in various forms of entertainment and vice.
The Castle’s lavish interiors are home to a range of extravagant venues, including an opulent cabaret club, gambling establishments where fortunes can be won or lost in an instant, and a grand battle coliseum. This coliseum is a particular highlight, drawing crowds eager to witness intense and often deadly combat. The Castle, in its essence, is a celebration of excess, where visitors can experience the pinnacle of hedonistic pleasures in a world brimming with high stakes and danger.
Like the city of Sotenbori, The Castle also features various Stroll ‘n Patrol requests which Joryu can complete to earn Akame Network Points and money. These missions are easily identifiable on the map by white exclamation points, where Joryu will find someone in need of his help. Despite the setting, the requests offered in The Castle are relatively tame in nature, mainly requiring Joryu to play dress-up for one of its visitors. Here’s how players can locate and complete the request “A Taste of Kabuki” in Like a Dragon Gaiden.
Where to Start “A Taste of Kabuki” Request
Joryu can start “A Taste of Kabuki” in Chapter 3 of Like a Dragon Gaiden. To begin, head to The Castle and speak with the Japanese Fluent Tourist located inside the Gambling Hall. The man is standing against the right wall upon entering the hall.
How to Complete “A Taste of Kabuki” Request
The objective of “A Taste of Kabuki” is relatively straightforward, requiring Joryu to equip only one specific item: the Kabuki Makeup. However, this item is locked until Joryu achieves Gold Rank in the Coliseum, a milestone that aligns with the game’s storyline progression. If players haven’t yet reached this rank, they must complete the various challenges in the Bronze and Silver ranks of the Coliseum.
The Kabuki Makeup is one of the more expensive items at the Boutique, priced at ¥400,000. Players in need of funds can participate in Coliseum challenges within The Castle to earn the necessary amount quickly and conveniently.
Once Joryu has purchased and equipped the Kabuki Makeup, he should return to the Japanese Fluent Tourist inside the Gambling Hall. The tourist, delighted with Joryu’s effort and appearance, rewards him with Akame Network Points and ¥75,000.
