I want to try this series, but I don't think there are any games available on Switch in the west yet, right?

This is the first Switch title.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I really wish they would launcg before Pokemon but I think we'll have to wait to spring/summer 2020



wonder how it will sell, on the switch it could reach good numbers

It should do well, but the Yokai Watch popularity seems to have diminished. However with that said, this should be the most popular western release of the game. 



 

Level 5 looks to be going back to their old PS2 era style with this game. Finally the era of 3DS touch controls, and auto-attacking is over!

I'm honestly impressed on how good Youkai 4 looks. Really, they've shown more dedication to the presentation of their game than Game Freak did with Sw/Sh, and with a tenth of the resources.

Wait, what? Level-5 is a larger studio than Game Freak, and they've released many more home console games.



It seems they've taken some cues from Ni no Kuni 1's combat system for this game.

The entirety of Level 5 does not have the resources in terms of money and prestige Pokemon has. If the Pokemon Co. and Nintendo wanted, they could add GTA V level funding and human talent, but they are too conservative in their effords. Law of minimal efford.

I'm honestly more excited for this than Pokémon



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

yeah, popularity of yokai watch slowed down, but maybe the switch could help
