Meals that Increase Money Earned

Early Game Money Farming

Here are the recommended money farming activities to do during early game:

Good Things Search

Good Things Search which can be accessed after clearing Chapter 3 allows you to pick up items from search points (appearing as shiny round objects) near areas with vending machines.

You may occasionally pick up Gold Plates and Platinum Plates that sell for 100,000 Yen and 200,000 Yen respectively so be sure to check search points whenever they appear.

Street Shogi

Upon reaching Chapter 3, you will be able to play the Street Shogi mini-game that lets you obtain items that can be sold for money. Winning games in Street Shogi nets you points which can be exchanged for prizes that can fetch a good price when sold off.

While there are many game modes, you can earn as much as 200,000 Yen by clearing the Tsume Shogi game found in the security job area in Yokohama.

There are many prizes to get using points earned through playing Street Shogi, though you may want to trade for Silver Beetles which can be sold for 2,250 Yen when farming money.

Insect Collecting

Collecting and selling insects is also a good way to earn money at the start of Chapter 3 of the main story. Various rare insects can net you a good amount of cash when sold. Some insects can also be used for weapons training, making them useful outside of turning them in for money.

Where to Sell Unwanted Items for Money

Middle to Late Stage Money Farming

Here are the recommended money farming activities to do during mid to late game:

Business Management

Business Management which is unlocked when you reach Chapter 5: The Liumang Man is arguably the best means to farm money during the middle to late stages. Up to 500,000 Yen can be earned in every Regular Shareholder Meeting. If you raise your rank in the company to the first position, you can earn up to 15 million Yen and earn as much as 3 million Yen for each session cleared.

Final Millennium Tower

Running the Final Millennium Tower allows you to earn massive amounts of experience, making it one of the best areas to level-up characters during the post-game stages. Simply defeating the tower’s first boss (Lv.70 Thought Body Saejima) easily earns you about 150,000 EXP. You can exit the tower after beating him and repeat the process to grind levels.

  1. Don’t forget about the Nouveau Riche Crown. As far as physical stats it only provides 10 defense and 5 magic, however, it also boosts the amount of money you receive from enemies. The rate is 1.1x. Not a huge increase, but with the number of encounters you can get into while just roaming, that extra 10% really adds up over time, especially if you’re fighting in higher danger areas like Chinatown.

  2. Dont sleep on the gold crown guys, craft them for every single party member, you get x2.0 multiplier then drink sengoku cofee when fighting boss for whooping x2.5, managed to earn 80++ million on final tower in 30 minutes

    Or 12mil/5 minutes if you farm first boss then exit

  3. What about the casino? Pretty easy to earn tokens and then exchange them for plates to sell for 200,000. Especially with the VIP poker(need minimum 10,000 tokens) which could net you easily 40,000+ tokens which translates to about 4,000,000 after exchanging for the highest plate and then selling those.

    • Exactly. The AI poker players are terrible, and even minor save scumming can earn you tens of thousands of chips once you’ve accessed VIP poker. Blackjack is a fast way to get to 10k. The casino can be accessed once you get lvl 4 style.
