Level-5 and Gungho Online Entertainment have announced Yo-Kai Watch World.

The new game is currently in development for smartphones, and is likened to Pokemon Go, but with Yo-Kai.

Both developers are partnering with Google to get access to Google Map data for the game, providing a more robust digital adaptation of real-world maps.
