Yo-Kai Watch 4 is expected to launch in Spring 2019 on Nintendo Switch in Japan. It will be the first entry in the main series to launch on Nintendo Switch instead of Nintendo 3DS. The last Yo-Kai Watch title for the Nintendo 3DS, Yo-Kai Watch 3, will launch in North America on February 8, 2019, and in Europe this winter.
Today, Level-5 has revealed a new trailer and gameplay footage for their recently delayed action RPG, Yo-Kai Watch 4. The footage was previously shown at Tokyo Game Show 2018.
Both feature the game’s different human protagonists, improved graphics from the previous entries, and an entirely new battle system where human characters fight alongside their Yo-Kai team. It seems similar to the gameplay seen in Level-5’s Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.
In the gameplay footage, the protagonist Touma and his Yo-Kai team are seen fighting against the Jingeki boss. A new summon ability which allows Touma to transform was also shown.
