The next evolution of the Yo-Kai Watch franchise has been postponed slightly in Japan, with the upcoming Switch entry being pushed out of Winter 2018 to a Spring 2019 window, according to the latest issue of CoroCoro.

Given that the game is a pretty massive leap forward from its 3DS predecessors, with a much more detailed world, it’s not too surprising.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on Yo-Kai Watch 4’s release schedule as more information is shared.
