The Yo-Kai Watch games might have only been around for six years, but there are already more than a handful of entries in the series. Most recently, Yo-Kai Watch 4 was released in Japan on the Switch and ended up taking out the top spot in the local video game charts. This also happens to be the first time an entry has been released on a system other than the 3DS.
With this in consideration, there's likely to be many newcomers enjoying the world of Yo-Kai for the very first time, with no knowledge of the existing releases. Fortunately, Level-5 has plans to make the original Yo-Kai Watch game available on the Switch. This was confirmed during the latest episode of Level-5's virtual YouTube series. The game is expected to arrive on 20th September alongside Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and the Nintendo Switch Lite.
Other than this, there's no information about what the re-release of the original game will be like. This first title debuted on the 3DS in 2013 and introduced players to a world filled with Yo-Kai and as well as some unique battle mechanics. In our review, we gave the game seven out of ten stars.
