Yo-kai Watch Jam: Yo-kai Academy Y

Trademarks aren’t typically as newsworthy as most make them out to be, but a couple of interesting filings recently popped up that we thought were worth sharing.

First up is Sonic Frontiers from SEGA, which was filed in Japan. We know that the company has a new Sonic title coming up in 2022, and this may very well be the name of the project. SEGA announced the new game back in May, but other than a very short teaser trailer that didn’t show much at all, the company has been keeping quiet. It goes without saying that we’ll be hearing more once 2021 is finished.

We’ll also mention that Y School Heroes has received a trademark in the United States. Level-5 made the first filing in July, though it was properly made public in October. There’s been no announcements currently, but we can’t help wonder if Yo-kai Watch Jam: Yo-kai Academy Y – Waiwai Gakuen Seikatsu is being considered for localization in the west. It originally released in Japan back in August 2020, but there’s been no word on any sort of English release.

Thanks to Greatsong1 for the tip.

The latest issue of CoroCoro provides details on the next major update for Yo-kai Watch Jam: Yo-kai Academy Y – Waiwai Gakuen Seikatsu. A new mode will be added alongside a series of special costumes.

Level-5’s new Werewolf game-style mode begins with four characters tasked with defending the base, but one of them is an enemy spy. You’ll randomly be chosen as the spy or a student who must uncover the spy.

Level-5 will release the second major free update for Yo-kai Watch Jam: Yo-kai Academy Y – Waiwai Gakuen Seikatsu next week, the company announced today. “DLC 2: Cosmic Final Battle Rendevous” goes live on November 28 in Japan.

The update includes a new dungeon and story, new Yo-kai Heroes, new multiplayer missions, new skills, and new craftable weapons. Level-5 is unlocking the level cap as well.

Here’s a presentation and commercial for the update:
