The Japanese Soldier is a character in L.A. Noire.


World War II

During World War II, Cole Phelps and his unit were engaged in a battle on a South Pacific island when they managed to capture two members of the Japanese Army. When Phelps arrived to interrogate them, the two men were morose and unwilling to co-operate. When Phelps began to question them the Japanese prisoner spoke disrespectfully back to him, causing Phelps to slap him across the face.
