Do you think it's worth me translating some JP wiki info for you all? Assuming this is going to be exactly the same with no changes.

I just typed it all up thinking "Screw it, I'm so hyped I'll post anyway." Then I got a response, ha! Here's the info:

*Translations may be different in official localisations*

Characters (initial abilities in parenthesis)

Light Warriors: Sol (Counter), Sarah, Aegis (Red Magic Lv.1, Cover), Dusk (White Magic Lv.1)
Dark Warriors: Nacht (Flee), Diana (White Magic Lv.1), Alba (Black Magic Lv.1), Glaive (Focus)

Chapter Format

Each chapter has a level cap, a guest character (who has a fixed job based on the chapter's job theme), and a fixed party. The final chapters allow you to choose your party with no guest naturally. Clearing a Free Scenarios will unlock a job, so skipping some will result in less jobs. During the prologue Sol and Aegis travel with Diana and Glaive instead of Sarah and Dusk, the story quickly splits them up into Light and Dark Warriors.

Job System

Shared jobs: Freelancer, Warrior, Monk, Thief, Red Mage, White Mage, Black Mage, Summoner
Light jobs: Dragoon, Bard, Memorist, Knight, Devout
Dark jobs: Ranger, Dark Knight, Dancer, Ninja, Magus

They're split, yes. When a job is recieved, it is only accessible by characters present at the time. Sol can become a Knight but never a Dark Knight, equally Nacht can become a Ninja but not a Dragoon.

The system is expanded from FFV. Each job has 20 job levels, and they'll learn abilities on certain levels. Jobs like Warrior will learn their skills by level, while mages require you to purchase the spell or beat the summon boss. Levels are capped at 3 initially, and you have to spend "JP" to increase the caps for each individual job. So this means you'll have to specialise your characters if you want to mix and match the most potent combinations. You earn a fixed amount of JP automatically as you progress through the story. Like FFIV:TAY, there's challenge dungeons that all reward a single Moogle Coin in the same manner as Adamantites. Moogle Coins can be exchanged late in the game for 3 JP each. There's a post-game boss that drops these, so there will be an opportunity to max out characters for people into that.

There are more ability slots than FFV. You initially have 2 slots to customise with previously mastered abilities, and at certain job levels that'll eventually increase to 4. This doesn't mean you can wield every spell with one character however; abilities now have a cost. Something like Flee will only consume one slot, but Black Magic will consume 2.

And for anyone who has noticed that there's less jobs than FFV, don't worry, these jobs learn many more abilities. Mineuchi and Mighty Guard, moves learned by the Samurai and Blue Mage in FFV, are both learned by the Knight. The Red Mage learns Spellblade in addition to his four levels of Red Mage and Dualcasting.

There's more balance to the system too - Rapid Fire now consumes MP, as do many skills. And for those who have noticed that the famous Rapid Fire + Dualwield combination is only compatible with the Dark Warriors, fear not, for you can combine the Knight's two-handed with the Warrior's double attack for a similar effect.

There's a new type of ability system called Fusion Abilities. These abilities allow a character to combine two of their skills to produce a unique effect. For example, a character that can cast both Fire and Cure can use the F-Ability Magic Bomb, which deals non-elemental magic damage to the enemy. In order to learn the spell, the character must equip the spells (Red Magic Lv.1 or both Black Magic Lv.1 and White Magic Lv.1), and then it'll be learned by I think random chance whenever you cast Fire or Cure. There's roughly 50 of these to discover!

Wow, thank you. This game sounds much interesting now thanks to your translation. Appreciate it. I love job systems especially in FFIII ( and tactics which i've still to play on my ipad) so I hope to play it whenever it comes out.

Want to make a Devout, Thief, Dragoon and Magus/Ninja party. My favourite jobs.

There's actually 5 party slots to customise in this one! The 5th slot is taken up by the guest whenever there is one, but then when you unlock party switching you can have 5 different characters with unique jobs in your team.

This is shaping up to be such a great game. I never expected to see one of the best FFs on iOS.

So. ****ing. Hyped. I followed this monthly and soon, soon I'll be able to play it (and with everything in one package too)! Kinda wish we could see the original older-school graphics as well but it's looking nice the way they have it. Fingers crossed for a dual-language option.

I did the same. It's kinda weird in retrospect about how excited I got with each month over a game I had no access too. Guess I always knew it'd come over here somehow.

Not sure about dual language, did FFI, II or III have that option? Or how about FFT and Chrono Trigger? I know Chaos Rings has both.

FFIII had it but you had to change your system language to see it, SoM had it in-game, FFT didn't have it at all and I dunno about other ports. Everything I've seen indicates that Alba is absolutely hillarious in Japanese and I'd love to see it for myself without having to pay twice so having both languages in one package would be ideal.
