Yo-kai Watch 4: latest set of details (Yo-kai world,6 Watchers, more)

Now that the latest issue of CoroCoro magazine is available in Japan, Level-5 have updated the official website for Yo-kai Watch 4, sharing some more details about the game!

Yo-kai Watch 4 – About the game

As revealed last time, the 4th world of the game is none other than the Yomakai… the Yo-kai world. It’s based on the one from the latest Yo-kai Watch movie, Yo-kai Watch: Friends Forever (released in December 2018).

Yo-kai Watch 4 – Game Introduction

This entry offers no less than 6 playable characters, known as Watchers. As expected, they all have their very own abilities (for example, they all have a different Yo-kai Watch), so you will have to switch from one character to the other in order to make use of them all, in and outside battle.

The 6 watchers are:

  • Shin
  • Touma
  • Keita / Nate
  • Natsume
  • Katie / Fumi-chan
  • Akinori

The official website also introduces a new feature known as “Konkatsu” in Japanese, which is introduced as a new way to befriend Yo-kai (though it’s not clear if it’s still possible to befriend them in battle like in the previous games). A new character/Yo-kai known as Konsaru can “introduce” you to various Yo-kai, provided you meet the requirements first.

More details will be shared at a later date!

Also, there’s various types of toys that can be scanned in-game:

  • regular Yo-kai Ark
  • special-coloured Yo-kai Ark
  • Miracle Yo-kai Ark
  • Yoseiken / Ultimate Rare Ark

Scanning those in-game allows you to get special keys, get rare / special items, or fight some especially strong bosses.
