Level 5 has today shared two videos for Yo-Kai Watch 4 on Nintendo Switch, giving us plenty of gameplay footage to sink our teeth into ahead of its upcoming release.

The video above is the Tokyo Game Show 2018 trailer for the game. This gives us a quick look at some of the gameplay elements you can expect to enjoy when the title releases, although much of it is expanded upon in the additional video down below. There, you'll find an extended look at the game’s combat system and free-roam exploration.

It's interesting to see the franchise make the leap to the Switch, with the game naturally embracing the graphical upgrades made possible thanks to the more powerful hardware. The video shows off the odd bit of exploring, with the player speaking to characters on the streets and such, a decent chunk of battling gameplay, and even the odd cutscene or two. Check it out here:

The game is set to arrive in Japan next spring - after receiving a delay from its originally scheduled winter release - and we still have no word on any western localisation plans. Of course, we'd still expect the game to make its way over at some point - just as the others have done in the past.

What do you think of the game so far? Are you excited to play Yo-Kai Watch 4 on Switch if it does eventually makes its way over to the west?
