Today Level-5 announced a Japanese release date for its upcoming Yo-Kai Watch game Yo-Kai Academy Y: Wai Wai School Life, a spin-off of the series.
The game is going to launch in Japan for Nintendo Switch on August 13, while the PS4 version is coming “soon” within 2020.
Alongside the announcement, we get to see plenty of new TV commercials that will be aired in Japan to advertise the release in the country.
You can enjoy them below.
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 that serves as a setting of the game is a relevant factor in gameplay.
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.
