Yo-Kai Watch 4 - teaser video

Not really much to look at here, but it is our first video teaser for Yo-Kai Watch 4. We'll be learning more on this upcoming Switch game later this year!

Next Yo-Kai Watch movie titled Yo-Kai Watch: Forever Friends, debut trailer shared

- 5th Yo-Kai Watch movie so far
- this one coincides with the 5th anniversary of the franchise
- movie is set in the 1960s at a town called Sakura Motomachi in Tokyo, Japan
- the movie depicts the relationship between three children and Yo-Kai
- Level-5 CEO and President Akihiro Hino is the scriptwriter and executive producer

Yo-Kai Watch Twitter account seems to be teasing something (UPDATE)


UPDATE - Level-5 will host a “Yo-kai Watch 5th Anniversary Title Presentation” on June 27th, but it seems this event is tied to the reveal of something on smartphones.

I'd say that's a pretty clear tease from the Yo-Kai Watch gang about some sort of reveal. It's clear they didn't have anything to share during E3, but it certainly seems like something is in the works. I definitely think we haven't heard the last from Yo-Kai Watch in the states just yet.

Yo-Kai Watch 4 trailer due out later this month

Looks like we'll be getting details on Yo-Kai Watch 4 later this month. Not only is there an event planned for June 27th, it seems we'll be getting the first trailer a few days earlier on June 23rd, 2018. No word on localization at this time, but hopefully Level-5 decides to bring this one over.

More evidence of Yo-Kai Watch Busters localization surfaces

Yo-Kai Watch Busters launched April 19th in South Korea. Now that some people have worked their way through the game, an interesting find has cropped up in the game's credits. None other than Nintendo of America is listed as handling localization, as well as “Localization and Other Support.” It would be strange for Nintendo of America to handle the localization for South Korea alone, though. Seems like a release in North America is almost assured.

Yo-kai Watch 4 Announced For Switch

Recently we heard that Level-5 was planning all of their major titles for the Switch. There's no doubt that Yo-Kai Watch is a major franchise for the company, and in the most recent issue of Famitsu, Level-5 reveals that the 4th installment is coming to the Switch. It's set to release in Japan sometime during 2018, and will feature Touma Tsukinami, Natsume Amano, Keisuke Amano, Akinori Arihoshi, and others. Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino commented that “its content is getting a super high-grade power up, including some things that will surprise everyone.”

Thanks to Sligeach_eire for the heads up!

CoroCoro teasing a "shocking scoop" related to the Yo-Kai Watch franchise

What's next for the Yo-Kai Watch series? It may not be anywhere near as popular as it was a few years back, but it still has millions of fans the world over. You think Level-5 is going to let the franchise disappear? Of course they aren't, and it seems CoroCoro is going to have the scoop on what's next.

The latest issue of CoroCoro is teasing a “shocking scoop” related to Yo-Kai Watch for the May issue, which will be released on April 15th. CoroCoro has been a part of Yo-Kai Watch reveals in the past, showcasing new games that launch later the same year in Japan. Are we going to see that happen once again? We'll have to wait until April 15th to find out!

More hope for Yo-Kai Watch Busters localization surfaces



The tweet above comes from composer William K. Anderson. What on earth does any of that have to do with the world of Yo-Kai Watch? If you zoom in on the pic, you can see song titles like “Don’t Stop Tomato Red” and “Space Dance.” Those songs happen to be a part of Yo-Kai Watch Busters!

Earlier today we heard that Yo-Kai Watch Busters was coming to South Korea, which many took as a sign of localization for NA/EU. Now with the tweet above, things are looking even more likely.

Yo-kai Watch Busters seeing release in South Korea

Nintendo Korea has confirmed that the two versions of Yo-kai Watch Busters are set for release in South Korea. The pair of titles is due out April 19th, 2018. It's interesting to see the games announced for South Korea, but we haven't heard any mention of localization for NA or EU. Perhaps this is the first glimpse at that happening in the near future.
