LEVEL-5 has released a new gameplay trailer for Yo-kai Watch 1 will release on Nintendo Switch, showing their efforts to remaster the original Nintendo 3DS game in high-definition for the portable home console.

Mischievous Yo-kai inhabit our world, but cannot be seen by the human eye. Neither ghosts, monsters nor creatures, their personalities are distinctly humanlike but they are born from the soul of a deceased human or an everyday object discovering its higher purpose.

Early on in Yo-kai Watch will befriend Whisper, exploring the world as you use your Yo-kai Watch to discover other Yo-kai and encourage them to join your team to battle evil Yo-kai.

Each has their own skills and strengths, with more than 200 hidden throughout the game. Powering up your Yo-kai Watch and upgrading your supporting Yo-kai is key to success, as you play through the story.

Yo-kai Watch 1 will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in Japan on October 10th, priced at 4,980 yen (excl. tax).

Those that buy the game will receive a bonus serial code that can be used in Yo-kai Watch 4 to unlock a new Yo-kai, called Chairman Ikakamone.
