Like a Dragon Ishin soul orbs – how to get new abilities

If you’ve been playing the Like a Dragon series, then you know that it’s not all about fighting. Sure, of course, it’s necessary to beat up the bad guys and cry during some of the more emotional moments, but there are indeed RPG elements. Let’s take a look at how the Like a Dragon Ishin soul orbs work.

In order to get better at fighting, along with some extra abilities for running around and other pretty useful stuff, we gotta spend those experience points. But Like a Dragon is slightly different than a usual RPG.

Without further ado, let’s delve deep into how the Like a Dragon Ishin soul orbs work and how to get new abilities.

How to get Like a Dragon Ishin soul orbs

Like a Dragon Ishin features different types of soul orbs, which you gain after you level up with experience points like in any other RPG. These are:

  • Brawler Orb
  • Swordsman Orb
  • Gunman Orb
  • Wild Dancer Orb
  • Training Orb

A training orb is acquired when you level up and can be used to improve any fighting style. While the Style Orbs are acquired while fighting with that particular style and can only be used to improve that style (Brawler, Swordsman, etc).

How to get new abilities

When you have enough Soul Orbs, you can enter the Pause Menu and select “Abilities” to use them. By improving certain abilities on the wheels, you also unlock new and different abilities. Those new abilities will definitely come in handy to fight some of the more powerful enemies of the game, so be sure to train a lot and plan ahead if you decide to stick to one fighting style.
