A major update to Yo-kai Watch 4 will add the new map “Dandanzaka” and new boss yo-kai Sproink, developer Level-5 announced. It will launch in 2019 in Japan.
Here are the details:
■ Major Update Due out in 2019
New Map and Boss Yo-kai Added
A major update due out in 2019 will add the familiar residential area Dandanzaka (known as Blossom Heights in the English localization) as a map in the game. The boss yo-kai Sproink awaits at the public bath-house.
■ Version 1.30 Update (Released August 9)
Aim for Yokozuna (Champion) at the Yo-kai Professional Sumo
At the Yo-kai Professional Sumo, which was added in the version 1.30 update, you can enjoy sumo battles of a different nature than regular battles.
These battles are won by knocking your opponent out of the ring. Reducing the opponent’s HP to zero will not result in a win. Utilize your various techniques to knock them out of the ring.
Fight while checking the battle situation via the “Dosukoi Gauge” at the top of the screen. Be careful not to let your team’s gauge get too low.
Pay attention to the “kimarite” (winning technique) when an ally or enemy attacks with the final blow. Depending on the final blow delivered, the kimarite (“Demon Arm Throw,” etc.) will change.
Win battle after battle and aim for yokozuna! You can also earn rewards by building up Gottsuan Points.
It suddenly appears late at night…! If you see the Yo-kai Yamakasa shining in the night street, chase after it. You may be able to get a good item out of it.
Yo-kai Watch 4 is available now for Switch in Japan. A PlayStation 4 version is also planned for release.
