Yakuza: Like A Dragon – Baseball Batting Centre (Mini-Game) Guide

Game Guides

One of the many mini-games to feature within Yakuza: Like A Dragon is of course the Baseball Batting Centre.

This is where you can enjoy rounds of Homerun and Challenge course batting action!

Below is a simple guide on how to complete this mini-game, it should not be too difficult if you want to take the much more easier approach to it that is.

CHALLENGE COURSE

For the Challenge Run course you will have 3 rounds of each difficulty (starting with Beginner and ending with Expert), each difficulty will unlock once you have completed the prior ones

Now when you are about to bat you will be shown a grid (which is quite traditional in Yakuza games now, in fact this mini-game is not much different in terms of mechanics compared to it’s predecessors).

This said grid is also the key to success too and I’ll be referring to it quite a bit

With this helpful grid, all you need to do is aim the ball cursor on the correct number and then hit the ball when it gets thrown towards you.

Each thrown ball varies in speed and angle but for the most part the numbers should not change, I have tested quite a few of them. Of course if it ends up being random then there isn’t much anyone can do about that but hopefully you will get the gist of it.

The only courses that I have not yet tested is the ones that unlock through completing the basic courses and then speaking to the Batting Center Manager

Below is what number each ball will land on.

Now after accumulating at least 100 Points you can then speak to the Batting Center Manager and purchase a Serenity Bat.

You can also get a Expert Bat which is great if you are trying to rack up points BUT if you just want to complete the batting challenges, then I would recommend the Serenity Bat.

The Serenity Bat makes aiming and getting those much needed Home Runs so much easier that other batting courses should also be a breeze to get through. Making the batting mini-game so much easier.

Once you have completed the courses more will become available through the Batting Center Manager.

(NOTE: For some reason I cannot activate the Batting Center Manager courses, currently I am unsure as to why. It may be because of the Serenity Bat or a bug)
