Choose the job you want. SEGA

In case you didn't know, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth came out a few days back. Like with most RPGs, one key feature is on combat and in the game, it has what's known as a Job System. It's way for members of the party to switch up stats, skills, and even weapons. A good way to describe it is that it's pretty much similar to classes in other RPGs. However, the way it works in the game is much more fluid.

The reason for this is that you get to change jobs. Which means you can come up with different strategies. Now before you get too excited, you won't be able to switch jobs at the start of the game. You can only unlock the Job System once you to Chapter 6. After that you'll have to meet certain conditions to unlock each available job.

Today we'll go through some of the character-exclusive jobs. These are:

  • Hero (Ichiban Kasuga)
    • The Hero offers a versatile battle style where you get to wield a bat and release different offensive techniques. In addition, you can also heal allies and even boost their abilities.
  • Cabbie (Eric Tomizawa)
    • The Cabbie can manipulate electricity and water. This job allows you to make use of special techniques to take advantage of enemy weaknesses while also infecting them with debuffs.
  • Heiress (Chitose Fujinomiya)
