Difficulty of PS4 Version

12 posts in this topic

I knew that Answer x Answer was deleted in the PS4 Version.

So I want to ask without Answer x Answer, what is the difficulty to platinum this game?

Is this difficult compare to other Yakuza games?

It's by no means the longest Yakuza plat but I'd argue it's the hardest plat in the series from a pure difficulty standpoint

I just began that game and started with the pool minigame. The rotation modus on the hardest enemy took me about 5 hours. In this time, I only had one missed opportunity, cause I failed after a draw (after that you start again, but the first shot wins). The other matches I mostly lost with 0 to 20 points.

After what I read the minigames makes this the hardest part and just this first minigame costed me more time and nerves than any battle or minigame (and so on) in 0, Kiwami 1, Kiwami 2 and 6.

 

Edit: Golf also took me some attempts, but with a lucky albatross (-3) I ended it with -6. Baseball on Ex-Hard also took me about 3,5 hours, now I have nightmares about the pitcher xD.

Hope the ultimate mode is easier than in 0 and Kiwami.

 

Edit 2: After getting platinum, I can say, that the most difficult parts are the minigames, especially Pool, Baseball (about the same difficulty as in Kiwami) and maybe bowling and golf. After the first run with all substories and skills, you'll get the Golden Gun. Together with some healing items, the legend run isn't hard. Also the Climax/Ultimate Battles are easier than in Kiwami or Zero. 2 or 3 "battles" are a bit harder, but nothing should take you more than maybe 5 tries, with knowledge of important skills.

its probably the hardest because pool in this version is beyond fucked up to a borderline inexcusable degree

Just finished 5 not long ago. That one has an insane amount of things to do even compared to other Yakuza games, but I still consider 3 to be the harder plat.

 

This is because you need to beat the hardest difficulties in every mini game. As others have said, a lot of games like pool just end up 20% skill, 80% luck.

 

Also, the enemy AI is incredibly defensive in this game. A lot of the combat is trying to get around the enemy blocks. I found it pretty tedious.

 

There aren't really any missables. The guide says there are 3 missable substories, so you might want to look into those, but you should be able to clean them up just fine in Premium adventure after you beat the game (so the trophy isn't missable).

They didn't change anything from the PS3 release in terms of gameplay outside of adding back all the minigames they cut. It's the same difficulty as 3 but with more minigames to deal with. Expert AI is still the same for darts and pool, golf wasn't made easier, etc. 3's already considered one of the hardest from the minigame aspect because the AI is completely unforgiving and unless you're hitting triple 20s in darts you're not going to beat it a lot of the time while in pool unless you're able to accurately pocket balls every single time you can move they can just clear the board on a single turn.

are there missable trophies/substories?

There's a couple missable substories, moreso because they added over 20 or so substories back. There's one where you have to deal with the suicidal guy I think in chapter 6, and then there's another one later on in chapter 8 I think. This is ignoring the three from the western PS3 release.

but the trophy guide for the ps3 says you can still play them in premium adventure? shouldnt the ps4 substories also be playable in premium adventure?

 

CyricZ's guide for the PS4 version does not mention any missable substories

They are indeed playable in premium. As far as I can remember, they are all doable there.

Even if I fail a substory (like the bowling substory), will it still count towards completing it and for the trophy?

Yes, succeeding is not required. Only completion is required for the platinum. I remember failing a few on my own journey.
