Japan’s blockbuster role-playing video game, Yo-kai Watch, has been revealed by Level-5 that its original game is coming to the Nintendo Switch as “Yo-kai Watch 1 for Nintendo Switch.” The developer revealed not only the game being ported from 3DS to Nintendo Switch but also provide an October 10 release date in Japan this year.
Furthermore, it has been announced that the game will launch digitally and physically. The company also unveiled the official website for Yo-kai Watch 1 for Nintendo Switch revealing some screenshots which can be seen in the latter part of this blog.
For those who’re unfamiliar with the series, Yo-kai Watch was once tossed as the next Pokemon game. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen. Meanwhile, the series gained a huge amount of praise and popularity in Japan. The most recent installment in the franchise is Yo-kai Watch 4, which was released in Japan this year for the Nintendo Switch, and is poised to head west sometime in the future.
The first game in the series was released for the Nintendo 3DS way back in 2013 and received three main sequels and several spinoffs on both Nintendo and mobile platforms.
Are you ready to play an HD remaster of the first Yo-kai Watch game? Check out the debut trailer below.
“The Yo-kai Watch game is about hundreds of sometimes cute, sometimes spooky, and usually mischievous Yo-kai that inhabit our world. Yo-kai are not ghosts, monsters or creatures. Yo-kai are, quite simply, Yo-kai. They cannot be seen by the human eye, but they are everywhere. Whether born from the soul of a deceased human, or an everyday object discovering its higher purpose, their personalities are distinctly humanlike.
“As you explore the world, use your Yo-kai Watch to find them, befriend them, and turn them into a team to battle other Yo-kai. Befriending new Yo-kai may not be so easy, though – in many cases, you will need to battle with them and impress them during your battle. Each Yo-kai has its own unique skills and strengths and you’ll use them to challenge the evil Yo-kai and help people in need of solving daily problems – like an argument with a friend or forgetting something important – which may be caused by mischievous Yo-kai hidden everywhere.”
