This Week’s Japanese Game Releases: Yo-kai Watch 4, Yakuza 5 for PS4, more

This week’s Japanese game releases are highlighted by Yo-kai Watch 4: We’re Looking Up at the Same Sky for Switch and Yakuza 5 for PlayStation 4.

Yo-kai Watch 4: We’re Looking Up at the Same Sky is the latest entry in the popular RPG series. Built from the ground up for Switch, the sequel features overhauled graphics, a new action-based battle system where players control the yo-kai and even the Yo-kai Watch users participate, and a story that spans four different worlds.

The PlayStation 4 version of Yakuza 5 brings the fifth numbered entry in the series to the current generation for the first time, remastered in higher resolution and frame rate.
