Each Hostess requires you to maximize their affection meter by answering back at them with the correct dialogue option and having 3 levels of affection that you must go through on every visit. I’ve only listed the answers that reward the maximum affection gains.

Key Takeaways
  • There are a total of 5 Hostesses in Like a Dragon Gaiden:
    • Two are found in Club Heavenly in Sotenbori,
    • While the other three are in Castle Cabaret.
  • You will need to max out three heart levels for each Hostess in order to romance them.
  • Every Hostess will allow you to select between various categories, with varying types of questions that you need to answer correctly.
  • Successfully answering with the best option will maximize your affection gains to romance Like a Dragon Gaiden’s Hostesses easily.
Important: In the rare chance that you do not reach the max affection bar for the session, I strongly recommend having at least 2-3 expensive gifts on hand, such as Earrings, which you can then offer to the Hostess at the end of every visit to gain bonus affection for them.

My Opinion On The Cabaret Hostesses

My playtime of Like a Dragon Gaiden (Image by Me)

The Hostesses are a neat addition to Like a Dragon Gaiden, especially since they’re a recurring feature in the Yakuza game series. This time, I was surprised to see the developers add them here via live-action footage. The answers to gain each Hostess’ affection isn’t something too tricky to figure out if you ask me, and by fully romancing them past Heart Level 2, you can take part in a romantic moment with them afterward.
