Yo-kai Watch 4 Release Date Has Been Delayed (Again)

May 05, 2019

Yo-kai Watch 4 release date will be delayed from June 6th, 2019. The game is supposed to be released on Winter 2018 but continued to postpone. Previously, the game will be released before the hype of E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo), yet with the announcement from Level-5 on May 16th, 2019 the game will be released after the Expo.

Yo-kai Watch, an RPG from Level-5 is one of the most popular franchises in Japan. The recession in sales of the earlier series (Yo-kai Watch 3) has made Level-5 put a lot of effort into the 4th series. To make the returning fans interested, series creator Akihiro Hino will use a different flow which was taken from the 4th movie, Yo-kai Watch Shadowside: The Return of the Oni King. The movie itself is a collaboration with GeGeGe no Kitarō.
