Next year, Level-5 will be releasing the most ambitious title in the Yo-Kai Watch series yet on the Nintendo Switch, with the fourth mainline entry being exclusive to the system. While we’ve known about it for several months, the only gameplay footage released so far was captured off-screen by Tokyo Game Show attendees, but that has finally changed with the release of the game’s first trailer. Check it out:

We’ll be sure to bring you more coverage on Yo-Kai Watch 4 as we approach the game’s recently-announced Spring 2019 release in Japan.
