Today Level-5 announced the Japanese release date for the PS4 version of the Yo-Kai Watch game Yo-Kai Academy Y: Wai Wai School Life, which is a spin-off of the series.
The port will release on October 29 in Japan and it promises high-quality visuals and 60 FPS as an improvement over the Nintendo Switch version which has been released a while ago.
The price is 4,800 yen for the standard version and 6,300 yen for the “DX” version including five DLC packages.
You can enjoy a trailer below.
If you’d like to see more about Yo-Kai Academy Y: Wai Wai School Life, you can enjoy the first screenshots and the original announcement, another batch from a few weeks ago, the previous trailers, and an older one.
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.
