The "Yokai Watch" series, the first of which was released by Level-5, Inc. in 2013, has been a huge hit with people of all ages and both sexes.
The series has also been adapted into an anime, and the ED theme "Yokai Taiso Daiichi" has become a huge hit among children and on the video distribution site "Odottemita" (I tried dancing to it).
In June this year, the latest title "Yokai Watch 4: Bokura wa doukomu sora wo mieru kakeru" was released, attracting many new fans.
The original "YOKAI WATCH", the origin of the "YOKAI WATCH" series, will be remastered for the Nintendo Switch!
HD remastering of graphics
The first "YOKAI WATCH" was released in 2013 for the Nintendo 3DS, so the graphics look rough when played now due to hardware performance and other issues.
However, "YOKAI WATCH 1 for Nintendo Switch" has been remastered for the Nintendo Switch, and the quality is comparable to the latest titles!
The game is optimized for the Nintendo Switch, with a two-screen display, whereas on the Nintendo 3DS, the game was displayed on two screens, but now it's all on one screen.
Compatible with "Yokai Arc DX Yoseiken
One of the reasons why YOKAI WATCH has become a social phenomenon is because of the "YOKAI MEDALS.
These medals are used to summon yokai in the game, but they were developed into toys in the real world and caused a huge boom.
The QR code on the medal can be read and used in the game, and it is also highly collectible, so it is still fresh in our minds that the medals have been in short supply for a long time.
However, "Youkai Watch 1 for Nintendo Switch" does not support "Youkai Medals.
Medals collected in the past cannot be used.
Instead, you can use the "Yokai Arc" and "DX Yokai Mana series" that are linked to "Yokai Watch 4: We Are Looking Up at the Same Sky".
You can obtain items and keys, and battle with the Swords and Demons in new ways!
There is also a permanent purchase bonus!
YOKAI WATCH 1 for Nintendo Switch" comes with a download number for the "Ika Kamone Chairman" that can be used in "YOKAI WATCH 4: We Are Looking Up at the Same Sky" as a permanently-included purchase bonus!
It's nice to know that it's not limited to the first release, but permanently included in the box.
It's cool that it allows you to enjoy not only "Yokai Watch 1 for Nintendo Switch" but also "Yokai Watch 4: We Are Looking Up at the Same Sky" even more. As expected from Level-5.
"Yokai Watch 1 for Nintendo Switch" will be released in October!
"Yokai Watch 1 for Nintendo Switch" is scheduled for release on October 10, 2019, and will be priced at 4,980 yen (excluding tax) for both the packaged and downloadable versions!
Kids who have never played the original game and fans of the original game will surely enjoy it!
