Here in North America, it was only just recently revealed that we’ll be receiving not one, but two versions of the sequel to Yo-kai Watch through Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits & Fleshy Souls. Featuring time travel and over one hundred new Yo-kai, these look like they’ll expand on the original in a satisfying way, though they’re already old news over in Japan, which is due to get Yo-kai Watch 3 soon.
Level-5 revealed a few new details about the upcoming third game that are sure to get fans talking. For one, players will be able to create their own Jibanyan (the “Pikachu” of Yo-kai Watch) and adjust things like appearance and tribe to make it much more personal. Also, a new Zombie mode will be making its way in to replace Oni Hour, where players must survive a night battling against zombified versions of various Yo-kai. Most importantly, the newest game will be taking place partly in the US, so the developers have included a not-so-subtle reference to the X-files. Two partners, named Rounder and Squarely, will be routinely investigating the paranormal events that the Yo-kai create, recording them in “Y-files”.
Obviously, it’ll be quite a while before the west receives Yo-kai Watch 3 (2 hasn’t even been announced for Europe yet), but it’s interesting to see the changes and new features the developer will be adding to the new instalment.
