The Snack World, Level-5’s latest game, was released last week in Japan for 3DS. Level-5 has more in store for the game though – two DLC packs will be released for it in the coming months. The first one, titled “Dragon Knight’s Trial!!” will be released in October, while the second one, “The Demon of Destruction! The Advent of Demiglass!!” will be released in January 2018. Each pack contains new dungeons, bosses, Snacks and Jara. They cost 900 yen if purchased individually, but only 1,500 yen if you buy the Season Pass, which gets you both.

Level-5 announced last year that The Snack World will be released outside of Japan, but we haven’t heard anything about any Western release plans since then.


Level-5 has been teasing the new version of Yo-kai Watch 3 with new trailers and commercials as of late. Today, the company announced a final release date. The update drops in Japan on August 30.

All versions of Yo-kai Watch will be receiving new yo-kai. Additional creatures will also be added to the game’s Busters T mode.

It was just a few days ago that we found out about Yo-kai Watch Busters 2 from CoroCoro. Level-5 has since followed up with a teaser site, accessible here.

Just like many of the recent Yo-kai Watch games, Yo-kai Watch Busters 2 is a 3DS title. It will not be a Switch game. 

Level-5 issued another new commercial for the upcoming 4.0 update for Yo-kai Watch 3. We’ve attached the clip below.

The first scan of Yo-kai Watch Busters 2 has emerged from this month’s issue of CoroCoro. A few tidbits are shared inside.

The full title for Yo-kai Watch Busters 2 is “Yo-kai Watch Busters 2: Treasure Legend Banbaraya”. It’s set on Karakuri Island, where the treasure of a pirate king rests. The island holds holds extravagent treasures and dangerous yo-kai.

Again, platforms for Yo-kai Watch Busters 2 have not been confirmed. But given the series’ history on 3DS, we’d be shocked if it didn’t end up on a Nintendo platform.


Level-5’s new 3DS game The Snack World has debuted in Japan. For a look at the release, watch the videos below containing a half hour of footage.

Level-5 has sent out a second trailer for the Yo-kai Watch 3 version 4.0 update dropping in Japan this summer. Check it out below.

Yo-kai Watch Busters 2 has been announced in the latest issue of CoroCoro Comic. The first game is a spin-off of the main Yo-kai Watch series and was only released in Japan on 3DS. Yo-kai Watch Busters 2 will be released in Japan this Winter – however, we don’t know yet which platform it’ll be on. We will keep you updated, should the game be on a Nintendo platform.


Yo-kai Watch is getting its next big update, version 4.0, sometime this summer. View a new commercial promoting the patch below.
