Anything new about Yo-Kai Watch 4? What’s the team excited about?
The Tokyo Game Show has come and gone, and the team at Level-5 brought two titles to the show, Yo-Kai Watch 4, and Inazuma 11. During an interview, the team talked about Yo-Kai Watch and noted one of the biggest changes to the series because it’s on the Nintendo Switch:
That’s right. Because the graphics in Yo-kai Watch 4 are 3D, you can fully explore the town from your own point of view and also look up into the sky. Because this hasn’t been possible until now, I think those that enjoy that element of exploration will really get a kick out of this game.
They also noted that the games’ battle system will have many elements by the time it’s done:
Yes that will also have a lot of improvements. In the final game there will be a lot more elements to the battling.
As for the future of Level-5:
For me personally, I want Level-5 to continue making light, enjoyable games to a high standard. That goes for both mobile games and eSports games too, but I’m thinking also about the games you can play for ten or twenty minutes online, like Fantasy Life Online. I want to increase our number of titles and increase our expertise. And, of course, I want to continue our pedigree of making single player immersive RPGs.
Yo-Kai Watch 4 will release next year.
