Yo-Kai Watch 4 was going through some growing pains last year, but after a seasonal delay it seems like the game is back on track. Box art is locked in, it's still a Switch exclusive, and it's set for a June 6 release, just in time for E3 e...

Review: Yo-Kai Watch 3

Yo-Kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki claymation ads are kawaii as hell

Review: Yo-Kai Watch 2: Bony Spirits

I completely fell in love with Yo-Kai Watch within days of the show's western launch. Level-5 has been welcome in my house since Dark Cloud back in 2000, but it has only honed its craft since then with the fantastic Ni no Kuni, Professor La...
