The game has a new hero Ichiban Kasunga.

Then Ichiban swear fealty to Arakawa and goes to prison in his place. But the story turns completely when Ichiban comes out of the prison in 2019 after 18 years of imprisonment. He gets the biggest shock when he come to know that the Arakawa family is now with Omi Alliance. They are famously nemesis of the Tojo Clan. When Ichikan tries to demand an explanation, his former saviour Arakawa shoots him. Ichiban has a bigger heart. He’s also loud, aggressive and pretty stupid as well.

Ichiban does not die with the gun shoot. He wakes up in a dumpster and founds himself in Isezaki Ijincho, a Yokohama suburb. It is a place where people come together who don’t fit anywhere else. The area has a major mafia triad but also a large homeless population. When you run into enemies on the streets of Ijincho, combat starts as soon as they spot you. Once combat begins, you can choose between a melee attack, guarding, special attacks and using items.

New Town
