Yo-Kai Watch Blasters Now Available in Western Regions

Nintendo have released Yo-Kai Watch Blasters.

The game is now available for the Nintendo 3DS in two flavors: Yo-Kai Watch Blasters: White Dog Squad and  Yo-Kai Watch Blasters: Red Cat Corps. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the games.

A sizeable post-launch downloadable content pack, Yo-Kai Watch Blasters: Moon Rabbit Crew, is coming on September 27th.

Here’s a rundown on both games:

Get ready for new action-packed YO-KAI WATCH gameplay, because YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS is now available in stores and in Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems! In these new games in the series, you can actually play as the Yo-kai themselves for the first time! YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS offers an exciting adventure you can embark on with up to three other people, so grab a friend, family member or even a friendly Yo-kai!

YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS is launching with two versions: YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS: Red Cat Corps and YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS: White Dog Squad. In both versions of the game, you can team up with other players who also have the game to take down and befriend Yo-kai, battle Big Bosses and tackle missions.

Some missions, bosses and Yo-kai are exclusive to each version. So by playing both, or by trading with friends, you can collect all the Yo-kai in both games. In YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS, you can befriend more than 400 new and returning Yo-kai, including boss Yo-kai, new Yo-kai like Usapyon and Blizzie, and even all the friendly Yo-kai from the previously launched YO-KAI WATCH 2 games. That’s a lot of Yo-kai!

Battles in YO-KAI WATCH BLASTERS take place in real time, as opposed to the turn-based battles of previous YO-KAI WATCH games. With four characters, you can strategize with different battle roles, like the offense-based Attacker, helpful Healer, tricky Ranger or defensive Tank.
