Level-5 has announced Yo-kai Watch 4++, an enhanced version of the original game including multiplayer, new areas, and new yo-kai for PlayStation 4 and Switch. It will launch on December 5 in Japan for 6,480 yen (7,128 yen with tax).
First-print copies of the physical edition will include a “Jibanyan Jinpei Yo-kai Y Medal,” which can be scanned in the game for something special (to be announced at a later date). The digital version will include the S-Rank yo-kai Damona.
Users who already own Yo-kai Watch: We’re Looking Up at the Same Sky for Switch will be able to purchase the new content as a paid add-on for 1,650 yen.
