RYU GA GOTOKU ISHIN

Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin (released in Japan in February 2014) is a spin-off game set at the end of the Edo period of Japanese history (known as the Bakumatsu period), a period when the Tokugawa Shogunate came to an end and imperial rule was restored (Meiji Restoration).

Sakamoto Ryoma is living undercover, with a false identity, as "Saito Hajime" in Kyoto. One year earlier, on the eve of the coup d'├ętat of Tosa, Ryoma's foster father, the man who raised him, was murdered before his eyes. The only lead he had to discover who the killer was is that he used the Tennen Rishin style of fighting. This is a style used by the Shinsengumi, so Ryoma infiltrates their ranks, becoming captain of the 3rd Shinsengumi unit, in attempt to find the killer.

Details || Locations

[1]

Go here any time after chapter 2. Ryoma is confronted by guys in tengu masks, from the "Kiyoso Tengu Group". After beating them in a fight, a woman talks to Ryoma (choose the top option) about a vigilante group known as the "Tachibana Family". She invites Ryoma into the group's base and tells him that the group tracks down criminals to help bring peace to the streets. She shows him the bulletin boards, where Ryoma can find information on wanted men. Ryoma agrees to help out.

You can now look at the wanted posters and hunt down wanted men. The wanted posters tell you where you can find the man.

DETAILS

After defeating an enemy, go back to the Tachibana Family Base in Mukurogai and talk to the woman to get your reward.

After talking with the woman and getting your reward, you have to leave and then come back before you can fight the next one. What I do is just travel back to Fushimi, then back to Mukurogai again (via the boatman). Check the wanted bulletin board when you get back - if there's no new posters there, then you can't fight the next guy yet.
