■ An Academy Full of Mysteries
School occurrences are not limited to peaceful events—seriously bad incidents will also occur. The cause of these incidents are the evil actions of onryo that are not of this world. Will you be able to solve the many bizarre incidents caused by the various unique onryo?
Onryo Causing Mysterious Incidents at the Academy?
—Seek out the invisible onryo to begin battle.
Transform into a Yo-kai Hero
Control the main characters, who possess the ability to transform into Heroes that utilize the power of yo-kai and onryo, and defeat the evil onryo to solve the many mysteries of the academy.
—A stylish, anime-like transformation scene. Jinpei Jiba transforms into the Yo-kai Hero Kengo Benimaru!
■ Don’t Just Win! Win in Style!
While this is an action game, battles are highly strategic in that the timing of transformation matters and there is meaning to the order you defeat enemies, but there are other highlights as well.
Battles in this game have spectators (an audience). If you fight while looking cool and show off your best moves, you will receive “Likes!” from the other students. You must not simply win the battle, you must win the battle in style.
Conversely, if you use the wrong moves, your audience size will decrease. Defeat the enemy in style and strike a signature pose!
—Transform into a Yo-kai Hero and fight! Tons of students will gather around you!
