OverviewEdit

While in a bar with Pierce, The Protagonist receives an anonymous phone call from Shogo Akuji informing them that Jyunichi is at Kanto. Spotting a chance to avenge Aisha's death, The Protagonist immediately hurries off for the teahouse.[1]

The Protagonist finds Jyunichi there among other Ronin. After defeating Jyunichi and hacking through The Ronin with a Samurai Sword, The Protagonist exits the teahouse, stopping only to casually eat a piece of sushi on the way out. Kazuo Akuji is distraught over Jyunichi's death and Shogo's presence fails to appease him. Shogo's betrayal has ultimately left The Ronin considerably weakened, and so he vows to finish what Jyunichi started and kill Johnny Gat, who is still in the Stilwater Memorial Hospital. Kazuo, dismisses him, forcing an upset Shogo to walk away.[2]

Story Edit

The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
It can be read in-game upon completion of the mission by selecting the mission at a Newspaper Clipboard.

Bodies litter the popular dining spot, Kanto, after a birthday party was interrupted by members of the Third Street Saints. Kanto representatives are confident the restaurant will reopen for business within the week.

Gameplay Edit

Kanto Connection

Gameplay from the mission.

This short mission introduces a special version of combat with a Samurai Sword, which must be used to defeat Jyunichi.

Head to Kanto

The Protagonist begins in Downtown, with a Kenshin parked nearby. There is no time limit to arrive at Kanto, providing unlimited time to use Dual Samurai Swords in a Mission replay

Enter Kanto and find Jyunichi

Upon first entering Kanto, there are on-screen instructions regarding the special sword fight. Use the relevant controls to counter incoming attacks from Jyunichi; it can be slightly difficult to learn Jyunichi's moves and time them so as to pull off a counter effectively just before he hits. Jyunichi can also be attacked on the floor after being countered which does more damage than a normal attack. Jyunichi can also be damaged with charged attacks, although The Protagonist is still grappled after performing them.

The weaker Ronin that accompany Jyunichi can mostly be killed with basic attacks, although some of them may block. More weak enemies arrive as reinforcements at various points the mission, but they too are easily dispatched.

Once Jyunichi's health is emptied, he falls, and the mission ends.

Rewards Edit

  • Rebadeaux neighborhood unlocked
  • Ronin Melee unlocked
