Yo-kai Watch 3 initially launched in Japan with “Sushi” and “Tempura” versions. A year later, a third “Sukiyaki” version was released. What does this mean for the western version of Yo-kai Watch 3?

This was initially unclear, but Nintendo and Level-5 did something rather interesting for Yo-kai Watch 3 in the west. As it turns out, all three versions were combined into one game. That means every Yo-kai can be obtained in a single save file.

For Yo-kai Watch 2, Nintendo originally brought Fleshy Souls and Bony Spirits to the west. Psychic Specters would come out a year later. Fortunately, we’re avoiding a similar situation with Yo-kai Watch 3.


After previously releasing in Japan, Yo-kai Watch 3 is out in Europe today – with North America to follow in early 2019. View a launch trailer for the game below.

According to the latest issue of Weekly Jump, Level-5 will have a new trailer on display for Megaton Musashi at Jump Festa 2019. Though we previously knew the game would have a presence at the show, it was unclear what the exact plans were.

Level-5 announced Megaton Musashi, a new cross-media franchise, back in 2016. The company has provided few updates since then, but it appears the IP will finally be returning to the limelight. Level-5 is currently developing a multiplayer action RPG, and there will also be an anime and toys.

Jump Festa 2019 will take place between December 21 and December 23.

Earlier today, Nintendo announced that Yo-kai Watch 3 is releasing on December 7 in Europe. Alongside the news, we have a look at the boxart above. Continue on below for a bunch of details about the game as well.

Nintendo published a new trailer for Yo-kai Watch 3, which you can watch below. Other than showing some gameplay, the trailer also revealed the final release date of the game in Europe: December 7th.

Level-5 is now 20 years old. To celebrate, the company has released a special piece of artwork, which we have above.

The various games and franchises Level-5 has worked on over the years is represented in the art. Layton, Yo-kai Watch, and Inazuma Eleven are just a few of the IPs highlighted.


Following up on yesterday’s confirmation by Level-5 that their ten year-old project Ushiro is now planned for Nintendo Switch, even more early details on the horror RPG title are leaking out of this week’s issue of Famitsu.

As part of an interview with Level-5 president and CEO Akihiro Hino, some new comments have surfaced that shed light on how the studio has approached reviving the game that was originally planned for the PSP. In the translation, Hino confirms that development on the Switch version of Ushiro has not yet started, but states that new creators at the company have wanted the project to see a revival. He also shares that there was a lingering feeling of Ushiro being a “ghost project” because they had wanted to return to the title but haven’t quite yet.

As an aside, Hino also shared some insight into a handful of other ongoing Level-5 works. He confirms that development on Dragons and Colonies, Yo-kai Watch 4, and Inazuma Eleven Ares is going quite well, while also teasing that there are other unannounced titles up their sleeve. Although he hints that the company’s 20th anniversary title will have an unexpected approach to online functionality, Hino clarifies that no new games will be announced before the others have released.

This week’s issue of Famitsu has some pretty extensive coverage of Level-5 since the company is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Among other things, Famitsu reveals a new game from Level-5 coming to Nintendo Switch – or rather, an old one: Ushiro, a game that was initially revealed in 2008 and was supposed to be released for Sony’s PSP, but never actually came out. The game was teased as a horror RPG; you can take a look at an old trailer for it below:

That said, ten years is a long time, so who knows how the game has changed by now. We should have more information once the full issue of Famitsu is out tomorrow.

At the Tokyo Game Show last month, Japanese website 4Gamer was able to interview Level-5 CEO. Hino spoke about the company’s upcoming Switch games, Yo-kai Watch 4 and Inazuma Eleven Ares. Given what was said, it makes sense that both were delayed this past week – Yo-kai Watch 4 to Spring 2019 and Inazuma Eleven Ares to this winter.

Aside from those two titles, Hino weighed in on a couple of other topics as well. These include finally returning to TGS and brief talk about the company’s 20th anniversary title.
