Like A Dragon Gaiden: Gold Ball Locations [Gotta Catch ’em Balls!]

With seven gold balls scattered throughout Sotenbori and the castle, players must know the location of each ball.

Once players reach chapter 3 of Like A Dragon Gaiden, the “Gotta Catch ’em Balls!” request will be made available once they visit Akame at her hideout. Players will be required to collect seven golden balls hidden throughout Sotenbori and the Castle. However, most of these balls are very well hidden but the prize is also well worth it so players must know the Like A Dragon Gaiden Gold Ball locations.

Key Takeaways
  • When asked, what is the gold ball locations in Like A Dragon Gaiden, five of them are scattered in Sotenbori while the rest are hidden in the Castle area.
    1. Three Gold Balls can be purchased from specific shops in Sotenbori, while another ball can be obtained during the daytime while one of the ships is passing through the river that goes through the middle of the map.
    2. You can find one of the Castle Gold Balls under the Golden statue near the Fighting Lounge, while the second ball is on one of the dancers who can be observed from a balcony located near the entrance of the casino.

  • The four choices that lead to a reward for collecting all seven gold balls in Like A Dragon Gaiden are the following:

You can not complete the “Gotta Catch ’em Balls!” request before you reach chapter 4. As one of the balls will only be made available once you finish another request, but more on that later. 

Now, there is no specific order that you have to follow to obtain all the balls, so you can head to these Gold Ball locations in Like A Dragon Gaiden in any order you want.

  1. Players can trade the Golden Ball at the Kiss Shot and Billiards Bar for 777pts. You can obtain these points by playing standard games or completing 1-Shot challenges.
  2. Another Golden Ball is available for purchase at the Shofukucho Pawn Shop for 77,777 yen.
  3. There is also a Golden Ball available at the Akame Network Shop for 777 Akame Points, which is accessible from Akame’s hideout.
  4. But players will need to invest in the shop through the Investment Tab three times for the ball to be available for sale.
Important: In the daytime, players go down to the river in the middle of Sotenbori and wait for the Tour boat to appear. They will see that one of the two tour boats will have a dancing man in the front. Use the Spider Rope to grab the golden ball from his crotch area (yes, you read that right).
  1. As you climb the stairs leading into the Fighters Lounge in the Castle, position yourself under the Golden statue.
  2. From there, look up onto the statue’s crotch area and use the Spider Rope to grab the Golden Ball.
  3. While you are in the Castle, go to the entrance of the casino, and from there, head to the balcony located at the left.
  4. From there, start observing the dancers; after a while, you will notice that one of the dancers has a Golden Ball on his crotch.
  5. Use the Spider Rope to obtain it as well.

As I said before, one of the balls can only be obtained after you have reached chapter 4. After initiating the Solve the Mystery Note Request. The Gold ball will appear on the map location shown in the image below. The request comes from a man sitting on a bench north of the river through Sotenbori.

Once you have collected the seven Gold Balls in Like A Dragon Gaiden and visited Akame, you can now visit Shen in the alcove. After conversing with Shen, players will be given four choices:

Wishes Rewards
Normal Peaceful Life No rewards
Endless Riches Players will obtain 1,000,000 yen
Eternal Life Players will obtain x100 Nourishment of the Sea King
Sexy Panties Players will obtain Shen-sans panties that can be sold at Sotenbori’s Pawn Shop for 1,500,000 yen.

If getting rich is your goal, then wishing for the Sexy Panties is a much better choice than the Endless Riches choice. With that, my guide on Like A Dragon Gaiden Gold Ball locations comes to an end. I hope my guide helped you out in finding all the Gold Balls hidden throughout Sotenbori and the castle.
