Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included an article on the upcoming Yo-Kai Watch Game Yo-Kai Academy Y.
We get to take a look at various situations that will happen in the school that can be freely roamed. For instance, we may witness a fight and decide whether to help or not. Our decisions and the places we visit will influence our school life.
The school is pretty much like a giant theme park with a variety of facilities, including a pool, a gym, and more.
The school is also being affected by a series of strange events, and it’ll be our task to investigate them and solve the mystery.
The hero Junpei can insert a medal holding the power of a Yo-kai in his YSP Watch, activating powers comparable to what you can see in anime. He can pretty much transform into a hybrid hero with the strength of a Yo-kai.
That being said, unlike most superheroes, his identity is no secret. Defeating enemies in a cool way in front of other students will prompt them to like him. It’s actually important to attract an audience.
