Level-5's cancelled PSP title Ushiro gets revived for Switch

All the way back in 2008, Level-5 was working on a horror title for the PSP called Ushiro. That game ended up getting cancelled, and not a peep has been heard since. That is, until this week's issue of Famitsu. The magazine has a Level-5 scoop that confirms the game is back in production, and now it's coming to Switch.

We'll have to wait for the full magazine feature to pop up online to get details, but at the very least, it's exciting to know this once-dead project is getting a second chance at life!

The Snack World: Trejarers Gold releasing in South Korea

Well here's an interesting find. The Snack World: Trejarers Gold has received a rating for release in South Korea. The last time Level-5 announced a localization for South Korea, it was quickly followed up by a Western release announcement as well. Let's hope we see the same thing happen with The Snack World: Trejarers Gold!

Yo-kai Watch 4 - plenty of details, more screenshots

The following details were translated by Perfectly Nintendo...

- new Yo-kai Watch game sees 3 different worlds connected to each other
- Keita (Nate)’s world from the original Yo-kai Watch game, Natsume’s world from Yo-kai Watch: Shadow Side, and Shin from the latest Yo-kai Watch movie
- also a fourth world, still being kept secret though
- characters from those 3 worlds get to meet from across space and time
- by going through a mysterious door, Keita ends up meeting Natsume, even though there are 30 years separating those two
- key to that mystery: the Yo-kai Arks
- these replace the Yo-kai medals from the previous games, but there’s a major difference: their only purpose isn’t just to summon Yo-kai
- also open some really mysterious doors, like that one Keita used to travel to Natsume’s world
- in battle, human characters get to battle alongside Yo-kai, on the battlefield
- when enemies attack, you can see where their attacks will land thanks to markers on the ground: avoid those, and the attacks will not hit you
- Touma can transform using the Yo-kai Watch Ogre
- to be more precise, he can have Fudomyoo possess him, granting him incredible power and allowing him to land devasting blows to enemies
- when exploring the world, you can change which character you’re controlling on fly
- also changes the kind of Yo-kai Watch you can use
- Yo-kai from the Yo-kai Watch: Shadowside anime appear in this game, in their Lightside and Shadowside forms:
Jinta (Lightside) > Jingeki (Shadowside)
Jibanyan (Lightside and Shadowside)
Charlie (a pun on “Chari” which means bicycle in Japanese) Lightside) > Ghost Cycle (Shadowside)
Kyubi (Lightside and Shadowside)
Orochi (Lightside and Shadowside)

Level-5 wasn't keen on showing Inazuma Eleven Ares and Yo-Kai Watch 4 at TGS 2018

Level-5 recently announced a delay for both Inazuma Eleven Ares and Yo-Kai Watch 4. Some were wondering why the delay cropped up out of nowhere, especially after both games just had some time in the spotlight at TGS 2018. Thanks to an interview with Level-5's CEO Akihiro Hino, we may have gotten some insight.

4Gamer talked to Hino about showing off both games at TGS, and it seems Mr. Hino would rather neither game was shown off. In his opinion, they weren't quite up-to-snuff for gameplay demos.

If possible, I’d prefer it if they weren’t being shown now at all. (Laughs) No, I’m joking. Obviously in both cases we are trying our best to make good games, but bringing them to the show was definitely a case of ‘even though they are not perfect, we have to show them’. It was very much a time demand. For various reasons, I’d prefer people not to see them as they are now.

Inazuma Eleven Ares - commercial

Well this is a bit weird. Level-5 just delayed Inazuma Eleven Ares the other day, and now they put out a commercial for it? Man, it seems like something funky is going on over at Level-5 lately. I hope everything is okay over there.

Megaton Musashi lives, info on the project coming at Jump Festa 2019

Talk about a major surprise! The last time we talked about Megaton Musashi was all the way back in Dec. of 2016. That's the last bit of info we had on the game, which was slated for release on 3DS. Something tells me that 3DS version has since been squashed, but I guess we'll find out for sure at Jump Festa 2019.

Level-5 has confirmed that they'll be sharing news on Megaton Musashi at the event, which takes place Dec. 22nd and 23rd, 2018. The original plan was for an anime, a 3DS game, toys, and more. There's no word on what elements have survived all the way to now, and what has been scrapped.
