Level 5 have announced Yo-Kai Watch 4++, an improved version of Yo-Kai Watch 4.
While the original game was purely on Nintendo Switch, this new version is slated for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Those who own the original game on Nintendo Switch can purchase DLC with the new content for ¥1500 (tax excluded).
The new features include simplified and traditional Chinese support, and a co-op multiplayer mode for up to four players (with a brand-new boss), new locations, and new yo-kai.
The first prints of the game will include a badge and a DLC code for the S-Rank yo-kai Hyakki Hime.
As a small aside, “plus plus” is pronounced almost like “pura pura”- the onomatopoeia for something eerily floating through the air, like a ghost.
