Oh no Nate: Yo-Kai Watch 4 gets a last-minute delay


Now due on June 20

What was once due before the madness of E3, is now set to arrive after.

The highly anticipated Yo-Kai Watch 4 was set to launch in Japan on June 6, but has now been quickly pushed to June 20 just weeks before release. This is one of several delays for the first mainline console entry, with Level-5 stating repeatedly that the cause is quality related.

As I've talked about many times before, Level-5 is at a tipping point with Yo-Kai Watch 4. The series hasn't caught on as well as they'd hoped in the west, but a fully 3D Ni No Kuni-looking Switch RPG is their best bet for really hitting it big. Various Yo-Kai Watch media franchises have been course correcting several times recently (from an adorable humor-based anime series to edgy, back to humor) and it's clear Level-5 has been putting a lot of time into Yo-Kai Watch 4.

Whatever happens, whenever this thing comes out it'll severely impact where the series goes from here.
