Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin Director Daisuke Inoue took to the PlayStation Blog to discuss the game’s jobs. Much of it was an overview. For example, he confirmed 27 will be available and briefly discussed the Breaker, Dark Knight, Ninja, Paladin, Sage, Thief, Tyrant, and Void Knight jobs as well. Most notably, he talked about how Breaker is based on the Odin summon from past Final Fantasy games.
Here are Inoue’s comments on how Odin influenced the Breaker job in Stranger of Paradise FInal Fantasy Origin.
For example, taking inspiration from the Odin Summon in previous Final Fantasy games, we came up with the idea of something that would let the player break and take out enemies in a single hit.
We thought about how to do this, and ended up creating an entire job around it – what would become the Breaker.
He also briefly mentioned one of the Breaker’s key abilities. When equipped, Zantetsuken becomes available. Inoue noted, “The Breaker’s unique action allows you to summon the Zantetsuken to break your foes and try for one-shot kills.”
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin will come to the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC via Epic Games Store on March 18, 2022. People who pre-order a digital copy will get early access on March 15, 2022.
