Today Level-5 released a new trailer for its upcoming Yo-Kai Watch game Yo-Kai Academy Y: Wai Wai School Life, which is a spin-off of the series.
The trailer shows plenty of gameplay showcasing the school that serves as a setting for the game and the many students that populate it.
As a bonus, we also get the opening animation and song for the related anime series, which is airing in Japan.
You can check it out below.
The game releases in Japan for Nintendo Switch on August 13, while the PS4 version is coming “soon” within 2020.
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.
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.
