LEVEL-5 has confirmed that Yo-kai Watch 4 is being localized for a western release, news that was shared at their LEVEL-5 Presents: Inazuma Eleven Ares and More! panel at Anime Expo 2019.
In the game, Yo-kai Watch Shadowside: The Return of the Oni King movie protagonist Natsume Amano, Shin Shimomachi from the upcoming Yo-kai Watch: Forever Friends movie and Yo-kai Watch series protagonist Nathan Adams use Yo-kai Arks, which act as keys that can open doors to other worlds.
These Yo-kai Arks were first introduced in the Yo-kai Watch Shadowside series and represent the feelings that connect Yo-kai and humans together – a reward for those that help Yo-kai when they need assistance.
Yo-kai Watch 4 is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch in Japan.
