Level-5 released the first trailer of its upcoming JRPG Yo-Kai Academy Y: Wai Wai School Life, a spin-off of the Yo-Kai Watch series.
The trailer focuses on the school that serves as a setting for the game, including some of its characters and specific locations.
You’ll probably notice that this is a very different game compared to the usual Yo-Kai Watch title.
Instead of being loosely similar to Pokemon, this game involves protagonists that basically fuse with Yo-kai to become pretty much like superheroes. They don’t even keep it a secret, as popularity in the school is a relevant factor in gameplay.
Funnily, the video is pretty much a reproduction of infomercials that often try to convince parents to pick a certain school for their kids in Japan.
You can check it out below.
Yo-Kai Academy Y: Wai Wai School Life is coming to Japan this summer for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
At the moment, Level-5 has made no announcement about a possible western release. We’ll have to wait and see if we hear something about it down the line.
