In addition to local correspondence multiplayer with nearby friends and family (only supported in the Switch version), you can also play with distant friends via the internet. Up to four players can play together.

In multiplayer, players take control of a yo-kai and work together with friends to battle enemy yo-kai. Strong bosses will appear, so form a strategy and take on the challenge.

New Area “Blossom Heights” and New Boss Yo-kai “Sproink”

The familiar residential area Blossom Heights is added to the game. Run around the residential area where the old town remains.
