In the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu, new details of jobs for upcoming video game Yakuza: Like a Dragon was revealed.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon introduces Fortuneteller, Riot Police, Idol jobs

In the upcoming game, there are classes to choose from and they are called jobs, and each of them offer different kinds of abilities to choose from.

Here are the details of these new jobs:

  • Fortuneteller – Unleashes various techniques that come with mysterious effects via the crystal ball they hold in their hand. Force enemies into a swirl of agony with fire and electricity. Their defense is low, however. In a fantasy RPG, they would be the “mage” class.
  • Riot Police – A job with high defense power thanks to its big shield and full-body protector. In a fantasy RPG, they would be the “knight” class.
  • Idol – A female-exclusive job that specializes in enchanting enemies and healing allies. With mic in hand, it uses physical attacks and song-based techniques, and has fairly decent attack and defense power. In a fantasy RPG, they would be the “dancer” class.

In order to unlock other jobs, players will have to upgrade parameters called Life Experience. It will consist of charm, enthusiasm, mentality, kindness, and more. If they do not meet the requirements, they will not be able to switch to that job. They can upgrade Life Experience by completing quests and enjoying Play Spots.

The game will launch next year for North America and Europe. Japan will get it on January 16, 2020. It will be available exclusively on PlayStation 4.
