Coming Out of Her Shell is one of the substories in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. Nancy sets her sights on another crustacean down by the beach and tries to win her over. Read ahead as we go through the steps on how to clear the Coming Out of Her Shell substory in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth.
The Coming Out of Her Shell substory can be encountered in Chapter 3 at East Aloha Beach after talking to Jeff at the Taco Truck at least once.
Substory #10: Coming Out of Her Shell Walkthrough
Upon arriving at the spot, Kasuga will let Nancy play out at the beach. Nancy then spots a hermit crab who has shells adorned with jewels, and she seems to be infatuated at the other crustacean. After this interaction, progress further into the story or do another substory like Substory #3: Crazy Money, then return to the spot to get the next part.
Head back to the beach where you first saw the hermit crab to trigger another cutscene. Next, let Nancy play with the hermit crab. The hermit crab doesn’t look like she is interested with Nancy, making Nancy feel sad. Kasuga then suggests to bring the hermit crab a gift and thinks that a small flower would do.
Go to the marked spot at Momo St. where you can find the small flowers; interact with the flowers to let Nancy pick one.
Go back to the beach where you will find the hermit crab being bothered by some guys.
Kasuga and Nancy decide to help out the hermit crab by launching Nancy over to them. Choose to do a Normal Throw to make Nancy land on the guys; choosing this throw will give you some Intellect points while choosing the other two throws will not make Nancy land on the target, but they will still make the guys go away.
Afterwards, Nancy hands out her gift to the hermit crab. Kasuga then overhears two men talking about some washed up treasures by the beach.
Next, follow the marker to find some men talking about the hermit crab whose name is revealed to be Olivia. They also reveal that the shell Olivia is using is quite a valuable one and is one of the treasures of a wrecked ship.
Go back to the beach to find that Olivia’s shell has been taken away from her and she now lives in a tin can. Kasuga and Nancy decide to find the thieves and retrieve the shell from them.
Kasuga finds the men who took Olivia’s shell. He then asks them to return the shell, but they refuse. You then get to choose among three options on how to proceed. Each option will give you different stat points:
I’ll beg if I have to. +30 Passion
Let me buy it, then. +30 Intellect
What do you know about rock bottom? +30 Kindness
Go for any of them as the men will still refuse and challenge you to a fight instead.
After defeating the men, you manage to get Olivia’s shell back, but since the shell is a hot item, it will keep Olivia in a risky situation. Just then, Nancy comes over and brings a new shell for Olivia who then chooses to use it as her new home instead.
The substory comes to a close as Olivia joins the party. You then get the Jeweled Shell and unlock Nancy and Olivia as Poundmates.
