Like a Dragon Gaiden: All Gold Ball Locations (Wish Rewards)

Like a Dragon Gaiden all Gold Ball Locations

Sega’s Like a Dragon franchise has always been filled with some of the most bizarre and fun side quests in gaming. The newest game in the franchise, Like a Dragon Gaiden, is no exception to this rule. It may have fewer quests than the other games, but each one is unique and fun in its own right. One of the strangest side quests in this game is “Gotta Catch ’em Balls!” In this quest, Akame tasks the player with finding seven golden balls across the game’s vast city in exchange for a wish. This Dragon Ball-esque quest can be difficult to complete for some players as there are no hints as to where any of the balls are. If you are having trouble finding them, here are all the Gold Ball locations in Like a Dragon Gaiden.

All Gold Ball Locations in Like a Dragon Gaiden

The seven Gold Balls in Like a Dragon Gaiden can be found scattered throughout both Sotenbori and the Castle.

Five of them are located in Sotenbori, with three being in shops and two being obtained via your spider gadget. The two castle balls are obtained via the spider gadget.

Sotenbori Gold Ball Locations

You’ll find Gold Ball 1 isn’t far from Akame at all. In fact, she’s the one who has it! In Akame’s shop, she’ll be selling it for only 777 points.

To get Gold Ball 2 you’ll need to go to Kiss Shot Billiards and get good enough at the game’s Pool minigame to win a single match. After you do, you can buy the ball for 777 pool points.

Gold Ball 3 is the easiest to get by far in Like a Dragon Gaiden as you just need to buy it from Ebisu Pawn Sotenbori for 77,777 yen.

You can find Gold Ball 4 in the Sotenbori River. It is being held by a man posing on the tourist boat. This boat only appears in the daytime, so don’t bother waiting for it at night.

Gold Ball 5 is obtained as part of the Chapter 4 quest ‘Solve the Mysterious Note’. After you’ve started this mission, the ball can be found on a shop sign in W Shofukucho.

Castle Gold Ball Locations

To find Gold Ball 6 in Like a Dragon Gaiden, you’ll need to travel to the Castle and go to the upper left section of the central street. There is a man with very little clothing just slightly off the map. The ball is on him.

He is out of range at first but if you wait around he will eventually move close enough to the map for you to grab it from him with your spidergadget.

Finally, Gold Ball 7 is located in the Castle as well, walk up the stairs to the Fighter’s Lounge and look up the legs of the statue. You’ll see the ball there.

All Wish Rewards in Like a Dragon Gaiden

Once you’ve obtained all seven Gold Balls in Like a Dragon Gaiden, return to Akame and she’ll tell you to meet Shen at E Sotenbori Street in the top right corner of the map.

Here you will find him and he says that he’ll grant you any wish. Leading to four options that you can choose from, each with its own reward.

  • Normal peaceful life – Shen will say he cannot grant that wish as this isn’t an anime. He will then demand that you pick a different wish.
  • Eternal Life – Shen will also be unable to grant this wish. However, he will instead give you 100 Nourishment of the Sea King healing items. These restore you to full health, so having a hundred practically guarantees you will never die.
  • Endless riches – This is another one that Shen says he cannot grant. However he will instead give you 1,000,000 yen! An absolutely tiny amount when you consider that the Colosseum gives you several million yen per victory.
  • Sexy panties – Even this wish is one that Shen cannot grant. Instead, he will give you his own panties. They are a completely worthless item, but can be sold for 1,500,000 yen. Which is somehow a greater reward than the Endless Riches wish.

Out of these choices, Eternal Life is easily the best one as money is very easy to obtain in Like a Dragon Gaiden.

In addition to your wish reward, you’ll also received 12,000 Akame points for completing this quest. Making it one of the most worthwhile quests in the game in terms of Akame Points earned.
