Yakuza 5 Remastered returns the exciting Revelations system. In this Yakuza 5 Revelations Location Guide we tell you where to find each of the Revelations for each of the five unique characters available to play in Yakuza 5 Remastered.
Revelations are unlocked during Part 1: Chapter 3, after a Substory with Mack, Kiryu’s old friend. It’s a quick mission and once complete, it allows you to discover Revelations across town. There are two distinct variations of Revelations. There are events, usually involving people and characters from the game world and then weapons, special weapon attacks that also unlock Revelations. Completing a Revelation allows you to unlock new Heat moves for that character. Note: You must have completed Mack’s Substory for these to be available.
Most of the Revelations require an input of buttons as they appear on screen. If you fail, you do not get inspired. However, you can simply walk a short distance away, usually to another street, and return. The Revelation attempt will return.
Important: The weapon Revelations are quite challenging. I tried a combination of methods. Heat moves, using Triangle, do not seem to work, stick with normal attacks and heavy attacks (L2+Triangle) as the Heat attack destroys the weapons in one shot. When you complete a weapon one, a small image flashes across the screen showing the characters eyes. Then you can use L2 and Triangle for an alternative attack.
Kiryu Revelations Location Guide
Kiryu’s event Revelation can be found on Modern Street in Nagasugai. There is a man trying to grab a woman near a vehicle. It’s the young girl and the stalker from before. Approach the couple and interact with them to get the Revelation.
Then there are three unique Revelations related to weapons. Firstly, there’s the plastic bucket. This is actually a trash bin, it’s a decent size, circular in shape. You can find it on West Goin Street, near a vending machine. There’s a few around town. This is very frustrating, it takes about 15-20 fights and finding fights in those exact locations are tough. If you want, you can wait until toward the end of the game for the Coliseum to open.
Next up, top of North Nagasu Boulevard. There are pliers on the floor, near a tree, some trash bags and some magazines. It’s right outside the store Nagasu Parlor Club. They may not be visible until you fight. Again, takes a lot of battles.
Finally, the stove. This is another that takes a lot of fights. It’s in South Nagasu Boulevard, outside the Happiness Life BLG building under a tree. You won’t see it unless you’re in a fight.
Saejima Revelations Location Guide
You need to complete the Substory Snow Festival Performer in the North East corner of town at the Main Street Public Park. After you complete the Substory, leave the area and return. You will see the performer standing atop a giant snowball. Interact with him for this Revelation.
The easiest Revelation for Saejima is using tires. There’s a ton of bikes outside Kamurocho’s Batting Center, but they are common everywhere in Tsukimino also. Smash up the bike a bit in combat and it turns into a tire.
There is another bucket Revelation for Saejima. It’s the same buckets, the blue trash cans. There is 3 of them in the Main Street area however they are very common in all the alleyways. The final one is potted plants but there are none in this city. Will update soon.
Haruka Revelations Location Guide
Haruka just has the single Revelation. Complete the Substory Starbound and then travel to the same bridge where you met the large lady.
Akiyama Revelations Location Guide
Complete Akiyama’s Substory Okonomiyaki Performer and then head to the location above the next time it’s day, around Part 3: Chapter 4. You’ll see the vendor there. Look at the vendor to get the Revelation.
His weapon Revelations are Bicycle’s, Beer Crates and Bowling Ball. Have yet to find any, will update soon. It’s likely best to wait for Kamurocho or the Coliseum.
Shinada Revelations Guide
Once you have completed Shinada’s Substory The Sweet Spot, wait a short while and then return to the batting center. Watch Pedro train to get this Revelation.
We will continue to update this Yakuza 5 Revelations Location Guide with other characters as we progress through the game.
