How to Get Money (Yen) Fast in Yakuza Kiwami 2
Yakuza 2 is one of the most beloved stories in the series, and now it returns with a huge Dragon Engine facelift in Yakuza Kiwami 2. It’s much more than just a simple remake, however, as Yakuza Kiwami 2 adds on a host of new features, minigames, story elements, and more. Of course, as with any Yakuza game you’re gonna want a ton of money, or Yen, to spend. You’ll need money to purchase healing items, food, weapons, and more. You’ll also need a hefty sum of cash during certain substories. Luckily there are a few ways you can make money easily in Yakuza Kiwami 2, and we’ll help walk you through them.
Early on at the start of Yakuza Kiwami 2 there are a few abilities you should invest in, in the “Life Skills” category. First off, make sure to get the Token of Appreciation ability, as this makes it more likely that enemies will drop items, including money, when you beat them. Ranking this ability up to its max can also increase the effect. Also, invest in the Law of Attraction ability in Yakuza Kiwami 2, which makes Noveau Riche enemies appear around town, who will each drop easily 50,000 plus Yen each time you beat them. You’ll also obtain a few plates while playing (Gold, Bronze, Silver, and Platinum), and each of these plates can be sold at the Ebisu Pawn Shop for money.
Finally, the absolute best way to earn money in Yakuza Kiwami 2 is by playing the Four Shine Cabaret Club minigame. There are abilities you can buy in Life Skills that will boost the amount of cash you make every time you play the minigame, and this can seriously give you an influx of cash. After you’ve gained some fans and played a little bit you can easily rake in a couple hundred thousand Yen every time you play. Considering every time you play is just a three-minute minigame, you can play quite a few times in a short window. Make sure to use the recruit option in the cabaret club to bring in more hostesses, so you can more efficiently run the club when you open it.
