While each of your characters’ starting jobs in Yakuza Like a Dragon are all well and good, you wouldn’t be blamed for wanting to mix it up by swapping them around for new strategies, abilities and so on. Fortunately, there is a way to do this, and that’s why we’re here to walk you through how to change jobs in Yakuza Like a Dragon.
How to Change Jobs in Yakuza Like a Dragon
Changing Jobs in Yakuza Like a Dragon is easy, but you can only do it once you’ve reached a specific point in the main story.
As you progress through the story, you’ll frequently go to a location known as Hello Work; a temporary work agency where Kasuga and his allies look for jobs to get back on their feet with. It can be found in the lower-middle portion of the map, to the East of the homeless camp and right along Central Street.
About a third of the way through the way through the game, you’ll be sent there once again. This time though, you’ll be informed that you can change your job whenever you wish by speaking to the attendant inside the building.
As such, all you need to do to change jobs is speak to this attendant. Within a few button presses, your character will be able to equip new weapons, use new skills and rock a new costume during battle.
How to Unlock Different Jobs (Classes)
However, it is worth noting there are limitations to which jobs you can change to in Yakuza Like a Dragon.
Though it costs nothing to switch jobs, you’ll have a limited pool of jobs you can change to depending on your level and your personality stats. For example, Kasuga can only change to the Foreman job after his Charisma reaches level 3, and can only change to the Fortuneteller job after he reaches level 20 with an intelligence level of 7.
Your party members, meanwhile, can only access certain jobs once they reach the right level and achieve a certain bond level with Kasuga. Case in point: Adachi can’t change to the Host job until he’s level 20 and has a bond level of 4 with Kasuga.
The best way to reach these requirements is to simply play the game and progress the main story. If you don’t meet the requirements for a job you want, then play through the game a bit until you’ve attained the necessary levels or personality points.
