Pro Yakyuu Famista Evolution

Today, Bandai-Namco announced their latest Nintendo Switch game, and for once, it’s not a port! The new game is Pro Yakyuu Famista Evolution, the latest entry in the Pro Yakyuu Famista series. It will be released on August 2th in Japan, and will cost 6 100 Yen + taxes (retail and on the Nintendo eShop).

The game will feature over 1 000 players (more than the previous game, Pro Yakyuu Famista Climax), with their actual name (under licence of the Nippon Professional Baseball. It features several game modes, such as Dream Pennant, Online Battle, Famista Fantasy and Board de Famista. Motion controls are included, allowing players to pitch and bat using them.

Yo-kai Watch Busters

Earlier this year, we learned that Yo-kai Watch Busters would be released on April 19th in South Korea. We assumed that the game would be announced for Europe and North America before that date, but so far, there hasn’t been any announcement. And yet, it looks like a western release is still in the works.

Indeed, Nintendo of America is credited for “Localization”, in the “Localization and Other Support” section of the credits. Unfortunately, no further details are available (not even a list of people who did work on the localisation), so the full extent of Nintendo of America’s work on the game remains unclear. Hopefully, Nintendo and/or Level-5 make an announcement before/at E3 2018!

Unfortunately, we don’t know what those 3 additional titles are!
