Level 5 announced on Thursday that its Yōkai Watch 4: Bokura wa Onaji Sora o Miageteiru (We Look Up Toward the Same Sky) Nintendo Switch game will get a PlayStation 4 release. The company also began streaming an announcement trailer.

The game shipped for Switch on June 20 after multiple delays.

The game "connects" 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 Yo-kai 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 launched in North America on February 8.
