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.
