■ Human Characters Being “Possessed”!? The Protagonist of the Movie and New Anime Appears in “Purapura Blasters”!

In the newly added multiplayer mode “Purapura Blasters,” you start from the “Blasters Hell Base” in the new area “Cauldron-Boiled Hell” (Kamayude Jigoku) in the Yo-makai world. Only yo-kai that are playable in Blasters will appear. Choose your favorite yo-kai and take on a mission! Up to four players can play together cooperatively, whether through local correspondence or via the internet. You can also play on your own.

In Blasters, a great number of enemy yo-kai will appear. While fighting alongside friends to defeat them, aim for the boss yo-kai that lies ahead. You can exchange the Oni Orbs obtained on missions for level-ups and exclusive items.

Additionally, human characters including the Watchers will also appear in Blasters. You can control these characters by possessing them. When you spot a human character, possess them to borrow their strength! In the battle at the bath house in the new “Blossom Heights” area, Nate (Keita) and the others will be wearing their swimsuits.

Additionally, Jinpei Jiba—the protagonist of the December 13-due movie Yo-kai Watch Jam The Movie: Yo-kai Academy Y – Can a Cat be a Hero? and December 27-due anime Yo-kai Watch Jam: Yo-kai Academy Y – Encounter with N—will also appear as a character you can possess. How will the protagonist of the brand-new Yo-kai Watch series fair in battle?

*Local correspondence multiplayer is only supported on Switch.
*Online multiplayer requires PlayStation Plus on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch Online on Switch.

■ New Quests Added: Befriend That One Yo-kai!

Multiple new quests have been added, and among them is are new stories surrounding Natsume and the Yo-kai Detective Agency, as well as Shin and company. By clearing each quest, you can befriend the yo-kai Shien and Fukurou, who appeared as bosses in Yo-kai Watch 4, as well as super powerful yo-kai like Shuka, Gentou, Hakushu, and Kuuten. Furthermore, there is a quest by which you can obtain special equipment that lets Enma transform into Yami Enma.
