NG+/Easy Guide

By KeyC13KeyC13. Last updated

Hello,
This guide is gonna show the route and strats i used to get my PB. I will update this guide as soon as I find faster strats and/or made more research.
I recommend to you beeing at max. level and have alot of money, because you gonna have to prepare some items in either NG or Premium Adventure Mode.

Items needed:
1x Paper Plate (10 @ Don Quijote)
1x Suntory Mineral Water (S. Alps) (130 @ Convenience Stores)
1x Dog Food (750 @ Poppo Nakamichi)
7x AppStimRx (150 @ Kotobuki Drugs)
8x Staminan Royal (12'000 @ Kotobuki Drugs)
9x Repair Kit (500'000 @ Ebisu Pawn)
100'000 Yen for Gambling Hall
300'000 Yen for Shangri-La Member Card

Equipment needed:
Elder's Belly Warmer (200'000 @ Ebisu Pawn)
Beads of Good Fortune (CP Reward)
Dojima Family Amulet (Complete Climax Battles: Mad Dog Battles)
MJM56-55 Exorcist (1'555'500 @ Beam)

Total money needed: 6'653'440

This is the bare minimum I use in my run. I bought some extra 21 AppStimRX and alot more Staminan Royal just in case Majima shows up multiple times.

You wanna start NG+ with the paper plate, the water, the dog food, 7x AppStimRx, 8x Repair Kit and 2x Staminan Royal.

Route:

This is not gonna be a step by step tutorial on how to beat the game. I expect you have basic knowledge of Kamurocho, the story and where the important locations are. I will tell you where and when you can skip cutscenes. If there is a cutscene not mentioned you can't skip it.
