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.

Last week, Monolith Soft opened a new recruitment page on its website. The Xenoblade developer is looking for programmers, planners, artists, designers, and management.

Wandersong launched at the end of last month. Currently, it’s available on just two platforms: Switch and Steam. Creator Greg Lobanov has indicated that it’s Nintendo’s console where the game has found the most success thus far. Lobanov told Destructoid that Wandersong has sold nearly three times as many copies on Switch than on Steam.

Wandersong also appears to be selling well in general. According to Lobanov, it “exceeded our expectations, and definitely is enough to support our tiny team.”
