No word on a launch date
During a panel at the 2019 Anime Expo, Level-5 announced Yo-Kai Watch 4 for Nintendo Switch would eventually be released in the west (thanks, HDKirin).

Another JRPG masterpiece is on the way

Among such titles is none other than acclaimed 2010 PlayStation 3 exclusive Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch which is gaining a...

Yokai ain't afraid of no ghost, but indifference gives them the willies
It seems the Yo-Kai Watch bubble is bursting fast in the Land of the Rising Sun. In fact, it burst a while ago, but the game and its accompanying media and merch were so incredibly popular in Japan that residual interest keeps the whole shebang running on fumes. While the craze...

Tough times ahead?
Another day, another rumour. This latest one is somewhat different and arguably more believable, as it's not about a specific game series making its way across to the Nintendo Switch and the source is a Japanese media outlet rather than a random listing by a distributor or retailer. The rumour stems from the delays of Yo-Kai...
