The latest edition of CoroCoro reveals exciting new information for Yo-Kai Watch fans as it announced Yo-Kai Watch: Shadowside. The project is across multiple media and includes both a new game and anime. Platforms for the Yo-Kai Watch: Shadowside game have yet to be announced, but with the Nintendo Switch selling so well and Level-5 being fairly strong supporters of Nintendo hardware, it shouldn’t be too surprising to see it on Switch. The newly announced anime will premiere on April 13th. Here’s the details:
“The series is set after the events of the Yo-kai Watch Shadowside: Oni-ō no Fukkatsu film (set thirty years after the original series), and follows Keisuke (Haruka Tomatsu), the younger brother of Natsume. Natsume is the daughter of the original protagonist Nate and was also the protagonist of the film.
Keisuke is a fifth grader who does not believe in ghosts, aliens, or even Yo-Kai. When he notices Natsume has been coming home late, without explanation, he decides to tail her. This leads Keisuke to discovering that Natsume has been going to a Yo-Kai Detective Agency, forcing her to involve him in her ‘activities’.”
