The Pocket Racing Circuit is considered one of the hardest mini-games from Yakuza Kiwami. It is all about RC racing and the competitors have to build and to modify small cars and to hit each other on an race track.
How to unlock the Circuit
You have to go to Shichifuku Street West, and you will find the Stadium at the end of the street on the west part. Here you have to talk with the Pocket Ciruit Fighter and you will se the option to enter in the Fighter’s Succesor substrory. If you want to unlock the Pocket racing, you have to accept the sub-story, because here you will obtain your first car, the Golem Tiger and some car parts. If you talk the Fighter again you will be able to customize the car, to make test runs and to eneter in the tournament.
How to complete the Fighter’s Succesory substory?
If you complete the substory, you can receive the Godspeed Monitor Mark II and you should trie to do this before to start the tournament. After you get the Golem Tiger, go on Theater Avenue, at Club Saga to start the substory. Here you will meet Hideki, and he will chalenge you to race in the Pocket Circuit Stadium. Go there and do your best to defeat him in the race. Afer this go to Stadust and you will see the prompt coming up. After all the cutscenes, go back at Pocket Circuit Stadium and win another race. In the end you will compete with the Pocket Circuit Fighter.
Where you find Pocket Racing parts to buy?
It is very important to buy new parts, and you can find them in plenty of locations. The shop is the evident place but you can find the parts at the dealers form west park, at Don Quijote and at Ebisu Pawn Shop. It is important to buy every part form all the retailers because you will need them.
If you want to win the races you have to buy parts and to switch them.
The best race strategy
There are a lot of factors that influence the finale of the race. You can lose a race because the car flew off the circuit. In this case you have nothing to do. It is very important to practice all the tracks just to learn the circuit before to start the race. You can think that is enough to press the boost button and to be in front of the other cars, but this is a very risky strategy just because you can fly off the circuit very fast. You should use boost rationally and wait for the proper moment to use it.
Every part has a price limit, and so it happens with the tracks. The beginner cup’s price is 25 and the Pro-am Race has a price of 35. You will not win a car or a part in every race so you need to do tests in order to find out what it’s working the best for you.
In this circuit you can attend 14 circuits and you need to win them to complete the minigame. We will show you all the details about each circuit. You need to know the distance that you will travel, the price for each circuit, the laps number, and the cars or parts recommended for each of them.
What you will read below worked for me, but you can find other optimal solutions to win this minigame. You can use the same build for many times, and you can get different results even if you play the same all the time. You should be patient and rememeber that, if a competitor is in front of you at the start, if you play good you can lap him. Again, remember that you can fly off the road aparently without reason.
