Nintendo and Level-5 have announced that Yo-Kai Watch Blasters: Red Cat Corps and Yo-Kai Watch Blasters: White Dog Squad will release in North America and Europe on September 7 for Nintendo 3DS. These Yo-Kai Watch titles are action-RPG spinoffs that originally released in Japan back in 2015.
Yo-Kai Watch Blasters features a different style of gameplay than the mainline series, focusing on more real-time skirmishes. The player controls a Yo-kai directly, mixing different skills and equipment to take on various missions. Each of the two versions contains different Yo-kai to collect, with more than 400 in total. There's even capability to team up with up to three friends either locally or online.
