Switch only? That's disappointing especially after they announced Inazuma Eleven for PS4.

It was to be expected.

Another reason why I think Pokemon will be 2019. If Animal Crossing does come this year along with Smash, and Fire Emblem and now Yokai Watch 4, I don't know if there'll be enough hardware to go around. I still stand firm on the idea that Pokemon will be an early 2019 release in the same vein as Zelda: Breath of the Wild and experience a massive blowout within the release months, and ride the wave up until the holiday season. Makes sense for Level 5 and Nintendo.

I agree. I’ve been saying this... Pokémon is probably a March game or something due to the reasons you mentioned, and the fact that it probably needs time for polishing and adjusting performance.

Releasing in 2018 would be a waste and an overkill. Smash, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem and now this are enough to help Switch reach 20m this year.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

From what I understand, the Yokai games are full of padding, and grinding. I tried the demo, and the world was cool, but the automatic combat, and the mini-games to do supers were really off putting. I like to have pinpoint decision making abilities in my RPGS, and this didn't give me that. Combat felt like chaos, but also felt really easy.

But then again, Level 5 is one of my favorite developers. So maybe the series will improve with the Switch version.

its already dying, their chance for switch was near launch but its gone now

That's a pretty pessimistic view.  If they are serious about making this a big jump over the last 3, it could revitalize the series.  Now it could immediately begin decaying again if they proceed to once again run it into the ground, we'll have to wait and see.

Yes -D it makes no sense. It makes you wonder :)

Some kind of AR (in a new cool way) or some "good way" to use amiibos or multiplayer..I dont know.. but it sounds very interesting



Now I'm thinking Jibanyan is going to be in Smash Bros to represent Yo-kai Watch and Level-5.

This has a good chance of being a big hit on Switch not only in Japan but I think being on Switch will give it a better chance of succeeding in the west too.

If Yo-kai Watch 4 and a Pokemon or Animal Crossing game releases on Switch this year the Switch's sales numbers in Japan will be crazy.

let's hope for full hd game, not a 3DS upscaling

Another Japanese Switch exclusive, the list is growing. Many franchises that used to be PS exclusive are also coming to the Switch (and PC). Good to see Japanese developers are finally waking up after wasting many years on unpopular consoles.

Don't Nintendo have a deal with Level 5 with this? I mean, Nintendo is the one publishing the games in NA and Europe, and considering it's a handheld series first and foremost, the jump to PS4 isn't probably of that much worth.

They have published Inazuma 11 as well. Ditto DQ games (from SE).

I think its somewhat surprising following Inazuma 11's move to multiple devices. But if they want to stick with Switch only then I am sure they have their reasons.

I remember our back and forth on this matter. Anyway, the reason I think they stuck with is because of the mobile aspect of the platform. It was logical to me because the previous iterations were 3DS exclusive.
