Yakuza 5 Remastered Substory Guide
Kiryu and friends return in another epic installment of the Yakuza franchise. In this Yakuza 5 Substory Guide we’ll go over all of the different Substories available for each of the five unique characters that you can play during the story in Yakuza 5 Remastered.

As with all of the Yakuza games, the Substories in Yakuza 5 are a fantastic way of exploring more of the game world. Interacting with new characters, learning more about the background stories of friends, and some of the rewards are pretty awesome too. Unlike some of the other Yakuza titles, the Substories in Yakuza 5 are much easier to find. The vast majority of them are displayed on the map with an “?” icon. As such, we’re keeping this one simple.
