New Yo-kai Watch 4 Gameplay Elements Detailed
Level-5 has provided more details and screenshots for Yo-kai Watch 4. The new information focuses on a couple of new gameplay elements as the series moves from Nintendo 3DS to Nintendo Switch.
The first of the new elements is the Naviwoof. This is a spirit dog that will guide players to their destination. The second is Yo-ki, which plays an important role in battle. During combat, the Yo-kai Watch will absorb Yo-ki Power (YP) from enemy yo-kai. This can be used to activate skills, such as for attacking and healing.
Yo-kai Watch 4 is currently planned for release in Japan on Nintendo Switch in spring 2019. Those looking to read more about the game can check out Sam Wachter’s impression from September’s TGS.
