We also caught a glimpse of one of the American yokai bosses, a giant mass of car and scarp parts… maybe we’ll meet this boss in an scrapyard? It’s also mentioned that a new yokai (possibly a Legend yokai) will be revealed on April 29th via the CoroCoro YouTube Channel!

More about the Tactics Medal Board

As we learned before, you can move, place, and swap out your yokai on a 3 x 3 square medal board area. A basic example for placement might be to put fighting type yokai to the front, while setting your healing yokai more toward the back. However, we now learn that the enemy yokai will also be moving on a similar 3 x 3 area as they compete with your team.

Depending on the placement of your yokai, different attack formations can be triggered. Your special attacks (Soultimates) are also initiated using new touch actions on the medal board.

New Maps and Areas

As we already knew, Yokai Watch 3 takes place in both Japan and America. Back in Japan we’ll be able to explore a new area, Aobahara (equivalent to Tokyo’s Akihabara) where Otaku shop for games, computers, and other electronics. NyanKB idol concerts will also be held there?!

Version and Linking Exclusives

If you get the download version of Yokai Watch 3 Sushi you’ll unlock SushiJiba, whereas if you download Tempura version you’ll unlock TenKoma instead. If you opted for the package versions you’ll get KK Brothers and Tomnyan Dream Medals instead.

By linking previous games in the Yo-kai Watch franchise, you can unlock special characters in your Yokai Watch 3 game. If you link Yokai Watch 2 Ganso, Honke, and Shinuchi, you’ll be able to get Jibanyan S, Komasan S, and Komajirou S respectively. With Yokai Watch Busters Akanekodan and Shiroinutai you’ll unlock B Jibanyan and B Komasan. Finally, if you link Yokai Sangokushi you’ll unlock Jibanyan Liu Bei, Komasan Sun Ce, and USAPyon Sima Yi.

Those Three Big Game Updates!

These three big scheduled updates are mentioned again, but they give us no solid new information about them other than they may contain new events and new yokai?!

Don’t forget, Yokai Watch 3 Sushi and Tempura will release in Japan on July 16th, 2016!
