Like a Dragon: Ishin – Solve The Mochi Mystery substory

As you head north through Rakunai along the street that leads past Kurogane Smithing, you’ll find a group of six men gathered at the bend in the road. When you approach the men, one of them recounts the sad fate of some scrumptious mochi. Two out of five men stole some of the delicious rice cakes. Now, the assembled men hope you will determine which two of them did the deed.

To find the thieves who stole the mochi and clear the substory, listen carefully to the testimony of the five suspects. They provide assorted clues as to where each of them was at the time of the theft.

You must piece together their accounts to get a picture of the events. When you’re certain you’ve heard everything you need to hear, it’s time to put on your best performance as a prosecuting attorney. Just in case you’ve considered the men’s evidence but you’re not quite sure who might be guilty, the culprits are Minamino (the second from the right) and Higashihara (on the far left).

After you accuse the two guilty men, they’ll confess to their nefarious deed. Some discussion follows, and then the matter is resolved. Life lessons are learned by all. You receive the Godslayer’s Talisman and some Virtue. The substory is also marked complete.

Like a Dragon: Ishin can be purchased on Steam and the Xbox marketplace.
