New Yokai Watch Game is in Development at LEVEL-5

    Too early for a reveal, however.

    After the launch of the Yokai Watch 10th anniversary website, LEVEL-5 CEO Akihiro Hino announced a new Yokai Watch game is in development. The announcement comes just moments after LEVEL-5 revealed its plans for July 2023.

    On Twitter, Hino shared a picture of Yokai Watch merchandise, including Jibanyan and Kamo-san plushes. The LEVEL-5 CEO thanks fans for their continued support and hopes they visit the newly launched website to join the festivities. Hino confirms a new Yokai Watch title is now in development, but it’s still soon for a reveal.
