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.

Level-5 has provided information about its upcoming plans for Yo-kai Watch 4. In addition to free updates in July and August, DLC is also in the works that will add multiplayer and more.

Here’s the full schedule, courtesy of Gematsu:

Yo-kai Watch 4 finally made its debut in Japan last week. Between June 20 and June 23, the game sold about 150,000 copies. Dengeki now reports that it had a sell-through rate of roughly 60%.

You may recall that Yo-kai Watch started off slowly, but the series’ second entry is where the franchise really started to take off. The games, anime, and toys were all in sync and resulted in a big popularity boost.

To celebrate Yo-kai Watch 4’s release in Japan, Level-5 has prepared a series of trailers and commercials for the game. Find the full set of videos below.

Level-5’s virtual YouTuber Dennouji Reto has shared a ton of footage from Yo-kai Watch 4. Have a look at two hours of gameplay in the videos below.
