Yo-kai Watch 4 Review

1st reviewer: It’s not just the looks of the stages; the exquisite story with a balance in gags and serious [parts] is also anime-styled. An all-stars-like gathering, which sees appearances from not only the movie version but also the protagonist and Yokais from the Shadow Side, makes a strongly influential story that fans ought to get totally addicted with. For the battles, the action where you absorb “Yokai Aura” from enemies gives a tactical [element] unique to this game and if feels very good. You can also control the humans, and there is a sense of unity when fighting together with “Friend Yokais” which is great. 10

2nd reviewer: I’m excited with the Yokais that have been drawn with greatly evolved graphics and a story of an adventure that surpasses time & space. The battles, which have been completely changed, have a good strategic element where you fight while also switching “Watchers” other than Yokais. There may be some people who might feel difficulty in following the quick story development, but being able to directly control Yokais is also good. The process of befriending a Yokai has become a bit more tedious, but having Yokais appear with different atmospheres and abilities in each world is interesting. 9

3rd reviewer: The all-stars composition which transcends time & space is extravagant. Each of them has spotlights in both story and battles, which is good. Although it’s unfortunate that Inaho does not join as a Watcher, they did give her a place to play a proper role, so that’s okay to me. You can feel the bonds between humans and Yokais in battles. You can calmly deal with situations by making use of pausing the game, which is also a great point. Some of the quests may feel like errands, but NaviOne’s auto-movement halvens the interesting factor. 9

4th reviewer: The graphics and sounds, which have been dramatically improved in details while crossing through the series’ past titles, promote a juvenile story that travels all over time and space. While systems related to battle power enhancements are a bit too complex, massive beatups and switching injured members unexpectedly make the battles still bearable. There is a thorough attention to keep young players interested in enjoying this without forcing things, with item placements that make detours fun among others. The collection features are also complete with extra content including privilege bonuses and collaborations. 9

Total score: 37/40
