Yakuza 0 Pocket Circuit Best Builds

Give yourself the advantage in all of Yakuza 0’s Pocket Circuit races.

Yakuza 0 is full of mini-games, and none of them can be as difficult as the Pocket Circuit Racing, a mini-game that has you building and kitting out RC cars to compete against others in a race.

To unlock this mini-game, you will have to go to Shichifuku Street West to find the Pocket Circuit Stadium. If you talk to the Pocket Circuit Fighter, he will give you The Fighter’s Successor substory. Accepting that will open up the stadium for you, and the Fighter will give you the Golem Tiger, your first RC car.

You won’t have to complete this substory to enter tournaments, but we highly recommend doing so as it will unlock additional parts for you to use. You will also need to buy more parts as you progress from the Pocket Circuit parts shop, West Park weapons dealer, the Ebis Pawn Shop, and Don Quijote.

Now, in terms of each individual circuit, we have each one here, broken down by what to expect from it and what parts we recommend you use.

Though, we do want to say that this is simply a list of the builds that we, and much of the game’s community, see as the best to use. Races will also throw a lot of random factors at you, and you could be using one of these builds, and something shoots your car off the track. These won’t always guarantee a win, so just be prepared for that.
