The November issue of Shogakukan's Coro Coro Comic magazine revealed on Saturday that Level-5's Yo-kai Watch 3 Nintendo 3DS game will get a third version titled Yo-kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki on December 15. The game will include additional content, all of which will be available in the original two versions of the game via an online update on the same date as the third version's release.

Additional content includes the appearance of Sendai Enma Daiō, Nurarishin, Kakusei Enma, and Kakusei Hinoshin. The new content also includes Koala-nyan, a character crucial to the plot of Eiga Yo-kai Watch: Sora Tobu Kujira to Double no Sekai no Daibōken da Nyan! (Yo-kai Watch The Movie: The Flying Whale and the Grand Adventure of the Double Worlds, Meow!), the upcoming third Yo-kai Watch film.

Yo-kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki will also include a new "Busters Treasure" mode, which features a newly designed T-Jibanyan and T-Komasan. The content of the "Busters Treasure" mode will be included in a new package for the game titled Yo-kai Watch 3: Sushi/Tempure Busters Treasure Pack, which will include content from both previous versions of the game, as well as the newly designed Jibanyan and Komasan, and will ship on the same day as Yo-kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki.

The physical version of Yo-kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki will bundle a Kakusei Enma Yo-kai dream medal. The download version will include a limited "USADōfu" yo-kai, which has USA-pyon wearing a tofu-shaped helmet.

The original two versions of the game game shipped in Japan on July 16. The physical Sushi version bundled a KK Brothers medal, while the physical Tempura version bundled a Tomnyan medal. The digital download Sushi version included Sushijiba, while the digital download Tempura version included Tenkoma.

Level-5 describes the title as an "updating game," as multiple large-scale updates will be available to download after its release. The game features new, "American-looking" Yo-kai, including (seen left to right in the image above) Dasocks, Pinto Corn, and Nikuyaki (Grilled Meat Ogre). The game takes place in the fictional town of Saint Peanutsburg in the United States, where Keita lives in a large two-story house and has access to the Johnson Space Center.

Nintendo released the first Yo-kai Watch Nintendo 3DS game in North America in November 2015. Yo-kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits and Yo-kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls debuted in North America on September 30.
