Back when Yo-kai Watch 3 was originally announced, during the Level-5 Vision 2015 event, Level-5 explained that the game would get a series of major updates: Ver. 2.0, Ver. 3.0, and Ver. 4.0. Many interpreted this as “Yo-kai Watch 3 will not get a third version like Yo-kai Watch 2”, and it looks this is not the case.
In the latest issues of CoroCoro magazine, Level-5 revealed Yo-kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki, which will be released on December 15th. It will include three new main elements:
- T Busters: a mode that seems to be inspired/based on Yo-kai Watch Busters. You have to explore dungeons in order to find hidden treasure, while fighting huge Yo-kai bosses;
- God Yo-kai: if you link all three versions of Yo-kai Watch 3 (Sushi, Tempura, and Sukiyaki), you can meet 4 God Yo-kai in the game. To meet them in Yo-kai Watch 3: Sushi or Tempura, you will need to download the Software update to be released on December 15th. Right now, it’s not clear if this update includes all the content from Sukiyaki, or just those extra Yo-kai. That being said, since both Yo-kai Watch 2 and Yo-kai Watch Busters got a major update to coincide with the release of the third version, it’s quite likely there will be an update for existing versions of Yo-kai Watch 3;
- Yo-kai Watch: Sora Tobu Kujira to Sekai no Dai Bouken da Nyan (Movie): this third version will include an extra storyline, to tie in with the latest Yo-kai Watch movie (which comes out a few days after). It will center around Koalanyan (a central character from the movie), and will also include special quests “transporting” you into a Gekiga / Graphic Novel world.
Here’s what the boxart of Yo-kai Watch 3 Sukiyaki looks like:
