Back in 2014, in January, the world was introduced to an Anime series called Yo-Kai Watch that really caught the world by a storm. With the success of that series, started a number of gaming titles too, the latest ones of which were just announced. The world of 3DS is all set to welcome the Yo-kai WATCH BLASTERS: Red Cat Corps and Yo-kai WATCH BLASTERS: White Dog Squad. The titles were announced in the trailer below
In this latest game in the Yo-kai WATCH series, players have the option to team up with up to three other friends either locally or online to fight towering Big Bosses, as they use their skills and Special Moves. While previous YO-KAI WATCH games focused on turn-based battles, Yo-kai WATCH BLASTERS puts the players into real-time battles, in the first ever action Role-Playing Game (RPG) for the series. During these battles, the players will directly control their Yo-kai as they strategize with different skills and equipment to defeat huge bosses. By taking on various fast-paced missions, players will embark on a journey to meet, befriend and battle more than 400 new and returning Yo-kai. Training Yo-kai will also affect the players’ team’s strength in battle. By training, you can create items and equipment to use on the player’s personal Yo-kai team! By completing missions, more powerful and useful items can be earned.
Each of the two versions of the game contains different Yo-kai, missions and bosses. By trading between the two, you can collect all the Yo-kai! And by linking save data from YO-KAI WATCH 2: Bony Spirits, Yo-kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls or YO-KAI WATCH 2: Psychic Specters, players can get one of three special Yo-kai to take into battle.
To keep the action and content going, a free post-launch update to the game will add new side stories, Yo-kai, bosses and missions.
The games are set to be available on the 3DS systems on September 7th of this year. As of now, no further information has been given out regarding the gameplay.
