During their panel at Anime Expo 2019, Level-5 confirmed that Yo-Kai Watch 4 will release in the west on Nintendo Switch. No release window was given, but Level-5 stated they want to release the game as soon as possible. A trailer was shown during the panel with English subtitles.

Yo-Kai Watch 4 recently released in Japan on June 20, 2019.


This latest title in the Yo-Kai Watch series has a brand-new battle system where the player can also control a Watcher, human character who now participates in battles and even launch attacks towards enemy Yo-Kai.

Yo-Kai Watch 4 takes place in four different worlds connected by mysterious gates: Keita's World which is very familiar to fans of the series, Natsume's World which stars Keita's future daughter Natsume 30 years later, Shin's World which is based on the Forever Friends movie and takes place in the 1960s, and the Ghost World which is headed by the Great King Enma.

We'll have to stay tuned for more information from Level-5.
