Final Fantasy 5 features a job system, improved upon from Final Fantasy 3’s job system, with 22 classes to choose from. This game featured two types of experience that player’s gathered for their characters, regular experience and ABP for leveling each player’s selected job class. As player’s leveled up each character’s classes, they could learn abilities that could be equipped and used when changing classes. Accessories were introduced in this game and allowed a new equipment slot for characters allowing for passive abilities to be equipped.
Originally expected to be released after the Final Fantasy 2 (actually Final Fantasy 4) release for the SNES, Squaresoft felt like gamers overseas weren’t ready for another flagship game in the series and worried that the average gamer wouldn’t be able to pick up and play this game. A PC version was also in development in 1997, but Squaresoft and the game studio hired for the port experienced bad communication and Square scrapped the project.
