Well, we weren't quite expecting this. Yo-Kai Watch is a series that has thus far been exclusive to Nintendo systems. It's an action RPG in which you collect and do battle with the titular monsters in a similar vein to the Pokémon series. There are a number of gameplay differences, but it's certainly within the same wheelhouse. The latest game, Yo-Kai Watch 4, was recently released in Japan, and Level-5 has just announced it'll also be coming to PlayStation 4.

No further details are known at this stage. We know the game will be ported to PS4 at least in Japan, but whether we see a Western release is another matter. Without a release date even for the Japanese release, it's probably safe to assume it's a while off yet.

Still, it's interesting to see the series make the jump to PS4. What do you think of this? Are you excited to see Yo-Kai Watch come to PlayStation? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
