I’m playing as Kiryu Kazuma on Yakuza 0 for PlayStation 4 (PS4). At some point, Chapter 2: Real Estate Brokers in the Shadows will introduce Ms. Tatsu. Another friend of Bacchus met at Theater Alley. She’ll be the master of Beast Style, radiating yellow energy in a ferocious way like a beast, as they say.
What is Beast Style?
“Power” style battles that focus on inflicting heavy damage to enemies. Your moves and attacks are slower than the Brawler and Charge styles. But you are a master at using weapons. Pressing Square on a nearby weapon will instinctively swing the weapon at nearby enemies.
Personally, in the case of the beast style, you can attack multiple enemies by swinging nearby objects. In one-on-one battles such as boss fights, you can hold a distance (press circle) and approach the enemy to perform hit and power slam moves.
Unfortunately, you have a speed bump. Pressing X for slow quicksteps can be tough when dodging quick attacks from enemies, especially those with weapons. Evasion rolls are the best way to dodge bullets, punches, and weapons.
How to complete the beast style?
Upgrade your abilities to deal more damage to enemies and boss battles. You’ll learn more from Miss Tatsu about the beast-style moves at Tokyo Pier. You have to pay for her sessions, which consist of training and work.
Training includes setting up an “obstacle course” at the pier. There is a time limit to smash all the mannequins using the box and press the square to achieve the goal. Each chest contains money of a different value that can be earned. You must win 10 drills.
Then, after completing each training session, you unlock the task. Meet Miss Tatsu’s 5 classes and your beast skills will be put to the test.
Your first mission is to get rid of Domoto, a man who has escaped from debtors for 20 years. As a reward, you will learn the Iron Fortitude skill.
The next task is to get rid of the grimacing Jingoro. The owner of a cosmetics company who couldn’t pay the Yakuza back. Upon completing this task, you will learn the Crushing Hammer skill.
Kinzie Antique Yakuza
Then, the third tricky task. You will be faced with Kinji wielding a katana in his hand. Defeat Kinji to get The Essence of the Beast: Wall Pin Heat Action.
Hiroya Fan King
The final lesson is to get rid of Hiroya. After defeating the Giant Man, you will face off against the fan king Hiroya at the Tokyo Pier. Hiroya’s best for using hits at the right time is because she’s quick to dodge attacks. After defeating Hiroya, you will learn Essence of the Beast: Overrun Hit Action.
You have now mastered all the moves of Beast Style. Let’s put that skill into the streets of Kamurocho in Yakuza 0 practice. have a good day!
