Yakuza returns with a flurry of rewarding and immersive new Substories. This Yakuza 6: The Song Of Life Substories Guide will tell you what Substories are available in each chapter, where to find them, how to complete them and the rewards you reap for your hard work. There are 51 Substories in Yakuza 6, with #52 being the completion reward for finishing them all.
As with past games in the Yakuza franchise, Yakuza 6: The Song Of Life Substories open at specific points of the game. Certain Substories are only available once you reach a specific chapter, but most can be completed in later chapters should you miss them or opt to continue with the main story instead. Unlike other Yakuza titles, we were unable to find a Trouble Finder in the game. Which usually told you where to find nearby substories. However, we have maps of both areas with the locations of each Substory and information on what chapter they become available.
The Substory list below is in the order we encountered each Substory. The story is a little shorter than past Yakuza games so I had already pushed through most of it before starting a lot of the mini-games. As such I featured them separately as I’m not totally sure when they become available.

Yakuza 6 Hostess SubstoriesThe Hostess Substories take place at The Shine club. You pick a Hostess and you have to build up your relationship with them. All of the Substories work in a very similar way. Get a Hostess to gold friendship and they will give you a business card. Then check your inbox and respond with an invitation. Repeat at Diamond level until Diamond is maxed. Then you can get a Substory from each Hostess.
You may be able to skip the social events at Gold, I never tried.
