Every game in the Yakuza franchise has a deep minigame that’s easily mined for quick cash, and Yakuza: like a dragon is no exception. Mastering the Ichiban Confections management mode of the game can be difficult given that the game doesn’t really tell you everything you need to know about it. But once you do, you can make 3 million yen in about four minutes.
Fortunately, with our management seminar, you will have all the tools you need to take Ichiban Confections to the top!
The aim of the management style is for Ichiban to make Ichiban Confections the largest company in Yokohama. You do this by hiring the best employees, taking out loans to buy new properties, encouraging workers, and holding shareholder meetings.
It is important to note that assets accumulated in management mode cannot be used as in-game currency to purchase equipment. That said, as you move up through the corporate ranks, Ichiban will get bonuses for successful shareholder meeting performance. These bonuses reach a maximum of 3 million yen per meeting, which makes management mode an incredibly efficient way to grow yen.
Best hiring practices
The key to any business success is its people. You will be able to hire a variety of management mode workers, each with a different business specialty and different stats across product, service, and notability categories.
In order to maximize profits, you need to make sure that you assign enough employees to each business you own so that each of these categories is met, allowing you to increase the company’s sales volume capacity. Keep those blue meters.
It is important to note that only the manager can use their three statistics to meet these requirements. Each other worker location will only be able to contribute to one stat requirement, so be sure to assign workers accordingly.
If you assign a worker to a company that they specialize in, you’ll also get a pretty big boost in stats.
Bonuses and treatments
Don’t overload your employees, or profits will suffer. Having highly motivated employees means that you are more likely to have positive, profit-generating events during the actual work simulation. After each working day, be sure to perform self-care on your employees. It can get expensive, but it’s worth it.
Promotions and training
All your workers will start with a level ceiling it can be raised by promoting them. However, this will also be increase their salary, so be careful!
Once you’ve promoted them, consider training them for massive EXP boosts as well (especially if there’s a guest speaker event, you can double your growth every now and then!)
The max level is 30, but we suggest you reserve it for SSR-UR workersbecause they have the greatest growth potential, and promoting too many workers can hurt your bottom line.
It is much more profitable to have highly skilled workers who do not need to be promoted and upgraded to meet goals rather than training employees who are not quite suited to the properties you currently own. .
As you progress in management mode, you will be able to buy (and sell) properties to maximize your profits.
The rule of thumb when considering a potential property is to look at both the potential sales volume (indicated by the yen symbols) and the actual expected profit.
The sales volume potential shows how many times you will be able to increase the sales volume of the property, which is more important in the long run than a high current expected profit.
While it might seem intimidating, as long as you have all of a property’s requirement bars in the blue (and enough money to do so), you should be able to level up the sales volume once. , then upgrade the product, service and brand awareness while still being in the blue.
Focus on high incomes for better results.
Loans and special events
We recommend that you only take out loans to help pay for new high income properties, and only do so through banks to minimize interest payments. This will reduce your profits in the short term, but if you have properly optimized your properties, you will be able to cover your loan payments and still have more than enough cash on hand to pay staff and make upgrades. level.
From time to time, you will also be presented with special events that require your contribution as the owner.
Sometimes you’ll be lucky enough to hire a worker directly at a strange rate (usually a high down payment but low pay). These workers can often be rarer than what you find in the normal recruiting section, so be aware and make sure you have enough money to hire if this happens!
This is probably the most important advice we can give. Early, always try to have at least 5 million yen on hand to pay for an advertisement. Later, once the company becomes Ichiban Holdings, you’ll want to save $ 10 million. They are expensive, but the ads can double or even triple your daily profits. They’ll be paying for themselves in no time.
These are uncertain. We found no correlation between what Ichiban says about investments and their actual performance. We recommend that you ignore them because it’s easier, faster, and more reliable to make money the old-fashioned way.
Shareholder meetings are absolutely essential to growing your business, and successful ones not only skyrocket you in company rankings, but also give you some cash to take with you to get started.
The first thing you’ll want to do when preparing for your meetings is to check your three key metrics:
- Net worth (how much money you have on hand right now)
- Employee morale (how happy are your employees. If that’s not great, you should perform self-care.),
- Current period sales (how much money you’ve earned since the last meeting). This will determine how difficult the meeting will be and how long it will take to defeat your shareholders in the debate.
The other thing to take into account is types of shareholders. Each has one of three types: Employee, Financial, Where Goods. This determines who you want to face them.
Salaried workers are effective against financial shareholders, financial workers are effective against land shareholders, and land shareholders are effective against employee shareholders.
It’s like rock-paper scissors, and that order of weakness is always displayed in a triangle on the screen if you ever forget.
Start the meeting!
At the start of the meeting, you will have the choice between several shareholders. It’s your job to refute all of their arguments with your workers.
Your workers each have different levels of worker confidence and persistence (read: attack and HP) as well as a skill cost you’ll have to pay to summon them.
Once you have chosen a shareholder, he will make his point. Keep in mind that, as in this example, this argument may not be of the same type as their own personal type.
Notice how the shareholder is of type employee, but his argument is of type property. Scroll through your workers to find one that’s strong against the argument (a “WEAK” pop-up will appear) and crush it.
Now is the time to do some damage. Look to the left and you will see a “Against Chance” icon. This shows the type of a shareholder is low at. Again, this might not necessarily be the same guy their opening argument was weak for! In this case, that’s the type of ownership, so we’ll go with Koyuki.
Choose such a worker and attack. As you do this, a multiplier will increase, allowing you to do more damage successively.
Repeat this process for all the remaining shareholders, keeping in mind that if you have any issues and run out of energy to call your employees, you can always use the apologize button to do some damage and earn some money. of time.
In the end, you should be able to appease them all quite easily! Even when bosses appear, these same strategies hold true. None of them throw major curves at you.
That’s it! Now you know everything you need to know to hire the best employees, bring Ichiban Confections to the top, and make Nick Ogata proud. After completing the management mini-game, your bond with Eri will be maximized, she will learn a new attack, and you can return to management at any time to farm the yen!
