Yo-Kai Watch Blasters Comes To 3DS On September 7
Yo-Kai Watch Blasters: Red Cat Corps and Yo-Kai Watch Blasters: White Dog Squad are coming to the 3DS on September 7, 2018. These games are different from the main series as they focus more on action than RPG combat like the others. Check out the trailer and the press release to see if they’re your bag.
On Sept. 7, two new games in the YO-KAI WATCH series are coming to the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. And these new YO-KAI WATCH games are unlike anything the series has seen before!
In the YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS: Red Cat Corps and YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS: White Dog Squad games, team up with up to three other friends either locally* or online to fight towering Big Bosses, using skills and powerful Soultimate Moves. While previous YO-KAI WATCHgames focused on turn-based battles, YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS drops you into real-time skirmishes in the first ever action-RPG for the series. During these battles, you directly control your Yo-kai as you strategize with different skills and equipment to defeat huge bosses. By taking on various fast-paced missions, you will embark on a journey to meet, befriend and battle more than 400 new and returning Yo-kai.
Training Yo-kai will also affect your team’s strength in battle. By training, you can create items and equipment to use on your 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 the YO-KAI WATCH 2: Bony Spirits, YO-KAI WATCH 2: Fleshy Souls or YO-KAI WATCH 2: Psychic Specters games, you 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 additional side stories, Yo-kai, bosses and missions.
YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS: Red Cat Corps and YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS: White Dog Squadlaunch exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Sept. 7 at a suggested retail price of $39.99 each. Which version will you choose?
*Additional games and systems are required for multiplayer mode and are sold separately.
