You’re far from alone in the fight to save Kamurocho in Yakuza: Of the End. Sega added a new partner system to the zombie shooting game. By clearing sub-stories you can turn an average joe into an action hero.
Makoto Date, a long time friend of Kazuma Kiryu, can be a partner character in Yakuza: Of the End. Kazuto Arase who vowed to kill Kazuma in Yakuza 3 is another returning character who can be recruited as a partner.
Where else can you find partners? The hostess bar JeweL, of course.
Kazuma and company can even convince hostesses to join them on the streets as a partner character too.
