|First game||Red Steel|
After escaping from the Overlook Hotel, Scott Monroe and Isao Sato head to Tony's store in Little Tokyo. It's the only safe place for them to hide. There, Tony learns about what happened at the Hotel. He also tells Scott about Sato's Yakuza connections.
While Sato stays with Tony Tanaka to recover from his wounds, Scott heads to the massage parlor.
When Scott finally returns to Tony's store, he explains that Ryuichi got away with Miyu and demanded the Katana Giri. Sato then tells Tony to give Scott the sword, which has been hidden in the store's basement. After Tony gives a brief lesson to Scott in swordplay using Sato's style, Sato's dying wish was to have Scott rescue his daughter, Miyu.
After Sato dies, Scott flies to Japan.
