Yo-Kai Watch 4 Game's 2nd Promo Video Streamed

Switch game launches this spring

Level 5 began streaming a second promotional video on Saturday for its Yōkai Watch 4 Nintendo Switch game.

The game was originally slated to launch in winter 2018, but Level 5 delayed the game to this spring to further improve its quality.

The game will "connect" the three "worlds" of original franchise protagonist Keita, Yo-kai Watch Shadowside: Oni-ō no Fukkatsu film protagonist and Keita's daughter Natsume, and the protagonist of the Yōkai Watch: Forever Friends film Shin.

Level 5 announced the Yōkai Watch franchise in 2011 with a game, manga, and anime already planned. The first game launched in July 2013 and the first anime launched in January 2014. The franchise is Level 5's third cross-media project after Inazuma Eleven and Little Battlers eXperience.

Yōkai Watch 3 launched for Nintendo 3DS in two versions — Yōkai Watch 3: Sushi and Yōkai Watch 3: Tempura — in July 2016. The company later released a Yōkai Watch 3: Sukiyaki version in December 2016. Yōkai Watch 3 launched in Europe on December 7, and will launch North America on February 8.
