The original Yo-kai Watch has been announced for Switch in a bit of a strange way. Level-5’s virtual YouTuber, known as Reto-chain, revealed the news regarding the re-release of the 3DS game.

Dragon Quest IX celebrated its tenth anniversary today. In honor of the occasion, a few developers appeared during a live stream. Although no announcements were made, there was some interesting discussion about a remake (and a tiny bit about a sequel) which could be a possibility for Switch.

Siliconera wrote down some notes of what was said during the stream. Here’s a recap:

During a panel at Anime Expo today, Level-5 confirmed that it will be bringing Yo-kai Watch 4 to the west. As was the case in Japan, it will be coming to Switch – which is not exactly a surprise. A release date was not announced.

At the same panel, during the Q&A portion, it was mentioned that Yo-kai Watch 4 has content that requires someone to have watched specific films in the series – which have not yet been localized – to fully understand it. Although Level-5 couldn’t say anything about releasing them in the west, they’ve expressed interest in wanting to do so.
