We just found out that the Yokai Watch anime is coming to the west, which is great news. But what’s next for Level 5? Well the studio boss Akihiro Hino says that in between development of Yokai Watch the team has been busy on a new franchise that Hino fully expects to dwarf Yokai Watch. I suspect we shall hear more about the project sometime next year.
“It takes a lot of time to craft new installments of Yokai Watch, but on some weeks, we’re actually spending more time on our ‘new title. Around this time next year, I think we’ll have something out that’s different not just from Yokai Watch, but anything else we’ve ever done before. 2015 is going to be yet another big year of change for us. 2015 will be a year where we usher in a hit bigger than Yokai Watch.”
