Yo-kai Watch 4

Level-5 plans to issue a 1.3.0 update for Yo-kai Watch 4 this month with the new sumo wrestler boss Yokozuna – Raidenryu. In a trailer today, we’re able to get a closer look at that battle.

Here’s the video:

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.

CoroCoro has posted a new video for Yo-kai Watch 4 featuring Gorunyan, one of the yo-kai in the game. Give it a look below.

Gorunyan will be offered through the July issue of CoroCoro.

Level-5 has released quite a few new details on Yo-Kai Watch 4, as well as some new screenshots. We’ve rounded up the details below (credit goes to Gematsu for the translation):

First up, Level-5 has detailed the recently announced GeGeGe no Kitaro collaboration in Yo-kai Watch 4. The collaboration takes the form of a side quest, which has the Yo-kai Detective Team meet up with Kitaro and help him look for Medma-Oyaji, who has gone missing.

CoroCoro has posted a commercial / short promo of sorts that gives us another look at Yo-kai Watch 4. Check out the advert below.

Developer Level-5 has officially delayed the release date of Yo-kai Watch 4 by a couple of weeks to June 20th in Japan.

Previously, launch was planned for June 6th. Reason for delay has been cited as improvement of the game’s quality.
