What’s a good RPG without a job system? Weird, that’s what. So traditional-style RPG “Bravely Default: Flying Fairy” also has a job system. As each week or so passes, we are learning tiny new tidbits about how exactly the job system is implemented in this upcoming Nintendo 3DS game and this time, we have learned that your character’s previous jobs can come into play with their current jobs.
Bravely Default has two type of abilities during battle – “Job Commands” and “Support Commands”. Job Commands are those made normally during battle (like magic, attacks etc) whereas Support Commands are automatic abilities, such as a knight having the ability to protect another party member. One of your Job Commands can have an ability that your character obtained while in a previous job, which can be used quite cleverly to help try and cover the weakness of a particular job, if you use the feature wisely. New abilities are learned as you acquire Job Points (JP) and increase your Job Level (maximum 10).
Also, like the “Tales Of” series of games, your characters will sometimes have a good ol’ natter. This can include commenting on the story, strategies et cetera.
