Like in the previous game (as well as the RPGs that Like a Dragon: Infinite both parodies and draws inspiration from), a job will determine a character’s base stats and usable skills. In the previous game, you got to change jobs by going to Hello Work. Hello Work is an actual employment service center in Japan. All characters will start with a base default job. You’ll be able to unlock more jobs for them throughout Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth.

Here is a list of default jobs for all of the main playable characters:

  • Chitose Fujinomiya: Heiress (a job that fights with ballet moves, which can also lower enemies’ attack and speed)
  • Eric Tomizawa: Taxi Driver (a technical job that can throw a tire at enemies, fight with a wrench, and use elements like electricity and ice to hit enemies’ weak points or debuff them)
  • Ichiban Kasuga: Hero (a combat-focused job that can also buff and heal allies)
  • Joon-gi Han: Hitman (a powerful job that focuses on attacking and defeating enemies before they can move)
  • Kazuma Kiryu: Dragon of Dojima (a powerful job stronger than all the other ones, which can change between three different styles in combat)
  • Koichi Adachi: Detective (a powerful combat-focused style that can also double as a tank)
  • Saeko Mukoda: Barmaid (a job that focuses on applying status effects and has a very flexible range of attacks suited for powerful enemies or long battles)
  • Seonhee: Assassin (a technical job that can stop enemies’ movements and steal turns from them)
  • Tianyou Zhao: Gangster (a powerful combat-oriented job that can debuff enemies or buff self when attacking; can also heal allies)
  • Yu Nanba: Homeless Guy (a magic-focused class that can attack enemies in a wide range)

The characters returning from Like a Dragon will have retain their original default jobs. There will also be new ones. Male characters will be able to obtain the Samurai, Marine Master, or Western Man jobs. A Samurai can use swords to cause enemies to bleed and use a bow to attack enemies in a range. The Marine Master is a balanced class that can debuff enemies or heal allies. Finally, the Western Man is best for battles against multiple enemies. He fights with weapons like a lasso, dynamite, or twin pistols.

Women will be able to get the Kunoichi, Maid, and Tropical Dancer jobs. The Kunoichi job focuses on speed, and can uses ninjutsu to create clones or switch turns with allies. The Maid job is similar to a mage class in a typical RPG, and specializes in fights with multiple enemies. Finally, the Tropical Dancer will be a support class that can also use powerful magic attacks.

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will come out on January 26, 2023 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC.
