This guide will walk you through the third part of chapter four in the Kazuma Kiryu part of the story, which is titled ‘the Encounter’. Let’s get started!
Head to New Serena. Speak to Date to find out what happened. Now it will be time to look for Yasuko again. Head outside and go north. Once you’re near her a short cut scene will trigger. Follow her west, and then north as she heads to Theater Alley. Turn east to Theater Square and keep following her. You’ll spot her again somewhere near Theater Square Northwest, and finally into Children’s Park. Open the manhole cover you’re familiar with and head down into the sewers.
This is a 2 on 1 fight with Tanimura and Akiyama. The two of them will have all the skills they had when you played them, keep that in mind as it can mean the difference between life and death. Watch out for Akiyama’s chain combos, you would want to always avoid them. You can overpower him easily with your own blows though; however with Tanimura just there it will be pretty hard. Tanimura can quick step around your attacks easily as well as parry them. Try giving him a taste of his own medicine and wait for him to attack and launch your own counter attack. It will probably be advisable to focus on beating one up first, but take on the other one as well if needed. Once they’re low on health they will hit you with an attack that will trigger a timed event. Simply hit the on screen commands and you’ll be fine.
After taking them both out, continue down the sewers until you reach the ladder leading to Purgatory. An old man will stop you and tell you where the people you are pursuing went. Get the manhole opening tool and proceed. Follow your waypoint, once you reach the area, a cut scene will ensue and the chapter will end.
