■ 01. First Look at “Yo-makai,” The Yo-kai World

While it has previously been confirmed that Keita and Touma can participate in battle, now it can be confirmed that a total of six characters will be able to participate in battle as Watchers. Keita, Fumi-chan, Natsume, Touma, Akinori, and Shin can fight alongside the yo-kai. Each character seems to have their own special abilities…

■ 03. Befriend Yo-kai with the Konkatsu

Yo-kai Watch 4 uses an all-new system for befriending yo-kai called “Konkatsu” (Soulmatching). Konsaru is a mysterious yo-kai that will introduce you to yo-kai you can befriend, but… there seem to be various conditions that must be met in order to be introduced. Look forward to more information about this system in a future update.
