While not usually a selling point, the escort battles featured in Yakuza 0 are unlike anything that has come before it. Chart a safe path through the city while holding the girl's hand to guide her. Hide in the shadows or crowds to avoid being spotted.
However, no matter how hard you try to avoid them, sometimes a man needs to stand his ground and fight. When you do, keep an eye on the girl, as threats are still all around her. You may need to put your body between her and danger to absorb their attacks before you can crush these killers!
